I imagine that this tower is part of the Casablanca City Center project.

I wonder why it is called Marhaba hotel chain, as the project was launched by Accor group.

Generally speaking, I think that they should have been more creative with the building design. It is extremely bland and unoriginal

The building looks old..

The design is 50 years old...

Casablanca center needs modern buildings and modern architecture just like
other cities in the world..

Is it still on stand by ?

This building is not part of Casa City Center, it's the old Marhaba hotel build in the sixties with 15 stories...

The renovation has begun early in 2002 with the purpose of keeping the original design but with 21 stories and it's on stand by since 2005, I wonder if it 's still on stand by...

I don't understand why they gonna renovate an old building from the sixties (The design is not so amazing). They can better break it down and build another modern hotel...

I don't know who the boss is in Casa but he of she can better look to other cities in Africa what they are going to build for new high modern buildings (Tunisia, Algeria, Nigeria, Angola, Senegal etc)...
And those are more specteculair then any new building in Casa..

This are not the sixties anymore but the 21 century. Casa needs building made for the 21 century...


Casablana should take an example to Tunisia new buildings project

a building from 50's 60's is fine as long as you modernise it and casablanca politians are clowns I see a huge difference between marrakech and casablanca
someone is doing something right in marrakch but casablanca no way it needs so much more work

Bonjour, y aurait-il des nouvelles par rapport à cette ruine qui faut véritablement tâche au mileu de l'avenue des FAR? Les autorités ne donnent pas l'impression de faire pression sur le promoteur, il serait vraiment temps qu'il y ait une vive réaction afin de soit le démolir soit commencer enfin les travaux de construction. Une décision doit être prise!
