KPDA was established in Nairobi in 2006 as the representative body of the residential, commercial and industrial property development sector in Kenya. It is an emerging Business Member Organisation which works in proactive partnership with policy-makers, financiers and citizens to ensure that the property development industry grows rapidly but in an organized, efficient, economical and ethical manner.
Kenya Property Development Association was originally incorporated in 2006 as an independent, membership association, lobbying, research and education organization under the name Kenya Private Developers Association. Later, the name was changed to Kenya Property Developers Association and the Articles of Associations and By-laws were amended accordingly. The reason behind the change in name was to expand the Association’s mandate to serve the needs of both public and private property developers in Kenya, as well as other relevant players in the industry.
