The helipad ought to go, but damn that looks awesome!
I don't know where it will fit in Nairobi's skyline, but its bulkiness will impose itself.

Instead of building garish skyscrapers, Kenya needs to prioritize and deal with its enormous socio-economic issues.

If everyone was to prioritize, we wouldn't have the Pyramids, the Coliseum or the Eiffel Tower.

Not that this is some magnificent architecture, but it's awesome for the continent.

Besides, we can always multi-task!Of course we are working on those issues but at the same time, we welcome all these ventures as most of them are done by private companies and individuals.We dont need to stick to one thing when we can perform more at the same time.

it would be the same as saying don't build the new WTC, spend that money on sorting out the Bronx once and for all.

- The tower is a privately financed development, not a government financed developed.

- The tower will provide employment for many Kenyans.

- Nairobians / Kenyans would be better off having the tower, than not having the tower.

It could end up working really good long tern if they build this. It will attract business and possibly gentrify the whole area.

It looks nice good to see something like this being built in Kenya. Hopefully they get more projects like this.
