Chief Operating Officer

Africa Logistics Properties (ALP)

MaceYMR has been supporting Africa Logistics Properties (ALP) since it began operating in the region, breaking new ground with a specialist offer to Kenya.

ALP is an integrated specialist property company that acquires, develops and manages modern logistics warehousing across Africa. It has developed and managed over 1,500,000 sq. m of warehousing space in emerging markets and its projects and acquisitions include greenfield developments, occupier rollout partnering and leasebacks of existing suitable facilities across Africa.

Our partnership with ALP first began with the modern logistics park, ALP North. Being the first of its kind in the region, MaceYMR supported the project’s actualisation with feasibility studies, business plans and in-depth research and continues to provide project costing and quantity surveying to the current development. With a strong focus on quality, the park will meet class A-standard on completion.

Acting as vital advisors, our relationship with ALP continues to strengthen both in Kenya and throughout the region, working on their second project in western Nairobi, ALP West, and another project in Kampala.

COO of Africa Logistics Properties (ALP), Richard Hough, talks about ALP’s relationship with MaceYMR.

“MaceYMR brings a mixture of discipline to quantity surveying but it also brings a commercial awareness in terms of helping to get a project started and understanding what a developer needs at every stage of the project.  ”
