LUANDA | Torre Angola | 325m | 70 fl | Pro

It will cost 800 million dollars

it is a joint venture between an Angola (local!!) real estate company and a Spanish start architect/company

It will have an exclusive international five star hotel and luxury appartments and offices

and a viewing platform with restaurant on the top floor

it will have some intriguing illumination from outside particulary at night it is said

it will have beauty and health clinics, spas, cinemas and shopping mall, too!

Symbolic meaning A - the shape of the building stands for the first letter of A-ngola











it will be the tallest building of ┴frica...hopelly alot more will come along...Go Angola

Hey, Evany!

I think this building belongs in the skyscrapers forum because it is probably not tall enough to be in the Supertall forums?

Is it proposed or U/C?

No it is above 300 metres so should be here. But not here here.. should be in Proposed Supertalls forum, which is a sub-forum of this one. A moderator will have to move it there.

Maybe similar to a funicular railway?

Are there also proposals to build the N, the G, the O, the L, and the second A next to this building?

You are very welcome! A moderator also has to add a status of "Pro" (Proposed) since you forgot to add it to your title.

The reason why some people may think this project is a joke is because the render is very lower quality. With most renders the Architect actually makes a very detailed series of pictures; this honestly looks very amateur.

If this project really is real then I wish the Architect could have bothered to make higher quality renders.

I know it is a real proposal/project; I saw it in the Angola section not too long ago.

It just would have been nice for the architect to make more detailed renders because honestly, without the detailed renders many people unfortunately will not take it seriously.

(btw: You should post the video link to your first post so they will know it is a real project. )

Hmmm this is a "have to see it to believe it" one, hopefully we can see a few construction pics, until then it should be moved to the proposals indeed.
