Westlands Shopping and Social Area, Nairobi, Kenya

Westgate Shopping Mall also known as Westgate is an upscale shopping mall located in the Westlands division of Nairobi, Kenya. It was first opened in 2007. A 2013 terrorist attack on the mall resulted in the death of at least 67 people, including four attackers, with 175 non-fatal injuries. Three floors of the mall eventually collapsed.

The mall underwent refurbishments and subsequently reopened on 18 July 2015 with a reduced floor area. Reconstruction of the remainder of the mall is in progress.
