Why wasn't Luanda stickied as well? Are you only giving sticky status to threads you made?

The Luanda thread is not as big as the Nairobi and Lagos Threads. The Nairobi thread is the largest thread, in this Sub Forum, so I guess there was a need for a new one.

Thanks for the video. Lovely Skyline I must say.

It is still approx 200 Post Shorter than the Lagos Thread. Perhaps 500 Posts is the Cut off Mark.

Uh no. If you read the 'Official City Galleries' guide, threads over 500 posts will be closed and a new one opened from now on.

I also asked not to post old photos from the last thread.

To ewangai



I just wanted to continue on the discussion on the seven star hotel from the previous thread. The hotel will be within KICC's main tower. Word is going round that the car-park to the right will be converted into a Mega-mall much like the Sarit Centre but it will be part of the hotel.

Hey kenguy , i think a mall in this part of the cbd would be great. This is one part of the city that is just dead because of all the government offices, not much activity as say the other side of moi avenue, if you know what i mean- except for saturday with the maasai market, i love that place.Do you know if its a kenyan architectural firm doing the job, it would be nice if it were.........

I agree with you totally, Parliament area and Harambee Avenue in general does need some life which Im sure will happen when the mall will be built. I think the only lively section here is around the Aga Khan Walk which IMO also needs a mall or two.

The mall project is still in the pipeline since they have to get other facilities within the main conference centre in order, starting with the rotating restaurant on the 28th floor. They also have to partner with a major hotel company eg. Sheraton, Protea to get the hotel up and running. I also hope its a kenyan firm doing the job.

i went to the kicc website(yes they do have one!)and there is no information on the hotel or even plans.Either the site is poorly run or they deliberately avoided putting up the info until the project has been officially gazetted.

I also visited the site but it seems to serve as a noticeboard for conferences and advertising the centre and its current facilities. They hardly mention anything else, even the current rehabilitation projects within the tower and the conference halls that have taken place. As I said, all these plans are in the pipeline, but they have to get the main function of the building (as a world class international conference venue) running.
