This green piercing building was supposed to be a symbol of how banking had developed in Kenya.

I guess we'll stick to the insurance companies to build magnificent towers.

May be they are yet to put the green facade? I have no idea how construction works, architects might tell us that the building is a done deal already, no more external additions can be made?

Also looks like the downed world trade centers...to some extent. Why are we building such in 2014 when those (WTC) were done in the 70's?? and dont say US vs Africa.

I noted they have a big compund which I am sure they will now use for parking in addition to the parking within the building.They have enough space for another tower in future if they so wish but I am sure they will now be content with the ample space without congestion
