Nairobi has potential to be one of the greatest cities in Africa.
As we continue developing we have had different projects in the development and tourism sector. One of them is a super new project with Pinnacle Towers that is set to become the tallest building in Africa. The new development begun in 2017 and is set to be done by December 2019. This has been one of the most ambitious projects that Kenya has been part of.
The building will be a twin glass-facade and will even be taller than the Johannesburg’s 223-meter Carlton Centre. The building will be hosting shops and Hilton hotel 255-guest room. A taller 330-metre, 67-storey lower will have houses. The project is a co-development by Hass Petroleum and Dubai based white Lotus Projects. The whole project is expected to cost KSh 20 billion which we wonder if it is a good idea. I don’t know what it would mean for Kenya’s economy but I imagine that it could be a tourism attraction.
