By Mike Mande (The East African)

Posted Monday, October 4 2010 at 16:32

It has emerged that the construction of a $32 million commercial building on a Dar es Salaam property belonging to the Mwalimu Nyerere Foundation has been delayed by two years over security concerns — and may be moved to another location altogether.

At the centre of the problem was the height of the 20-storey building planned on plots number 60 and 61 at the intersection of Sokoine Drive and Shaaban Robert Street.

Authorities refused to issue a building permit because of objections by the security service, who contended that the area is a restricted one.

The EastAfrican has learnt that the City Council of Dar es Salaam refused to issue a building permit for a 20-storey building and instead ordered the Foundation to build a six-storey building.

The Foundation then asked for a waiver to allow the 20-storey building to be constructed in the area, but the government refused, saying buildings more than 10 storeys are banned in the area.

Instead, the Dar City Council is planning to give the Foundation a 6,558-square-metre plot on Sokoine Drive, Morogoro Road, Mansfield Street and Bridge Street that was earlier allocated for the construction of the main bus terminal of the Dar es Salaam Rapid Transit (DART) bus system.

The earlier site, the 5,933 square metres at plots number 60 and 61 on Sokoine Drive and Shaaban Robert Street, will now be taken over by the Council in a swap to pave the way for the construction of the commercial property.

The project is a partnership between Mwalimu Nyerere Foundation — a non-governmental organisation honouring the legacy of Tanzania’s first president, Julius Kambarage Nyerere — which owns the land and will occupy some of the offices, and the CRJE Estate Ltd, a fully owned subsidiary of the China Railway Jianchang Engineering Company.

CRJE Estate is to build and manage the project for 20 years under a build, operate and transfer arrangement.

The $32 million project has now been postponed as the financiers and sponsor led by the International Finance Corporation, East African Development Bank and Shelter Africa wait for the zoning issue to be sorted out before releasing funding for the work to start.

Desmond Dodd, head of communications for the IFC in sub-Saharan Africa, told The East-African from Johannesburg that the IFC is optimistic that the outstanding issues related to the project will be resolved.

“IFC has committed to financing the project in Tanzania and wants to encourage China-Africa co-operation as well as ensuring high environmental and health and safety standards in the project.”

Mr Dodd said the IFC team helped make the design energy and water efficient, and ensure the project treats its water discharge since Dar es Salaam lacks a sewage treatment system.

“Due to IFC’s involvement, the project will meet international environmental and social standards in areas such as life, fire, and safety practices,” said Mr Dodd.

IFC has already provided a $10 million loan to finance a 20-storey office and retail shopping complex in the central business district of Dar.

this project has been relocated from Shabaan Robert street/Sokoine to Mansfield/Sokoine Drive. So it will be closer to Samora tower and PSPF Commercial twing towers.

I am skeptical if this Nyerere Tower will ever stand. The Project consultant Mr Elvis Musiba passed away in 2010 and the current director Mr Joseph Butiku is too old and does not have good relations with the Kikwete regime!

It will get built...Kikwete likes such projects.He once told CTI he would give them a prime plot if they built a 20 storey building.Apparently CTI didn't like the plot so another plot is been sort after. This project has been relocated at nps parking along sokoine dr. opp. tunakopesha.they swapped the plots with the local city authority.

Good news guys...This project will commence soon as the site is being cleared at the moment.Yesterday I happen to be passing along mansfield street and many cars were parked along the road.The almost 2 acre plot was guarded and every structure was demolished and loaded to trucks.Only that small Immigration house is spared.Even Taxi drivers & street car cleaners knew about Mwalimu Nyerere foundation towers construction plans.

You mean the plot will cover the whole length, i.e., from UN side up to the other side facing sea express office?

They have been given 6,558-square-metre. Now I don't know how big the entire plot is but someone told me it is almost 2 acre plot. Also occupying the plot is TACAIDS who are also leaving to Luthuli street opp the State House.Immigation also has a small house in the same plot which has been spared.

Yes they might cover from the ex-UN side to the side facing sea express terminal leaving immigration house. Tacaids office will be demolised too.
