What an awesome project!

Is that a mall at the bottom?

It looks like it's located next to Wabi Shebelle. I think it's that empty lot that's getting developed.
That area seems like it's the new up and coming CBD. The Police HQs are right across that roundabout, the Ethiopian Commodity Exchange is a block down from where this tower is going up, the Telecom (I think) building is coming up within a couple of blocks of this development as well, etc....

ETA: Here's a wikimapia picture:





I lined in red where I think it's going to be.
The orange spot next to it is Wabi Shebelle Hotel, the blue spot is the Federal Police HQ, the pink one is the Ethiopian Commodity Exchange.
The aqua spot I'm unsure about, but I think that's the spot where the Electric corp is possibly building its HQ.

"According to Berhane Deressa, City Mayor of Addis Ababa, the Mexico Square found in Addis got its name to acknowledge the efforts of the Mexican government to restore Ethiopian administration that was out of place during the fascist Italy occupation. Capital learned that Mexico too has a place named after Ethiopia. Andy Goldman told Capital that there is a place called "Etiopia" in Mexico City with its own subway stop, which is four stations away from Balderas Station."

btw here is info and pics of the Etiopia station in Mexico city http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metro_Etiop%C3%ADa

Wow, Addis is getting nicer by the day. Who is developing the project, is it an Ethiopian firm?

By the way, I used to stay in Webi Shebelle Hotel during my stay in Addis before moving to a villa in Bole.

Yes Huda is an Ethiopian firm. It's partially/mostly owned by Sheik Al Amoudi.

During Italy aggression against Ethiopia (world war II), The Ethiopian King went to the Liege of Nation (the present UN) meeting to protest the occupation. Guess what ? the only country who echo the protest against the occupation was Mexico. Mexico square is named after to remember what Mexican did for us. I hope u got the answer!!!!!!!!!!!

lol

no, it's in Ethiopia. Ethiopia and Mexico had a special relationship at one time, and a place was named after Mexico (this place to be exact) to honor that relationship in the capital city of Ethiopia.

I was in Addis over the weekend. The site has been fenced already so they seem to be going ahead with this project!
