Under the partnership, UN-Habitat will serve as KoTDA’s technical advisor on planning and development of housing guidelines. This will include urban and human dimension guidelines, which will be adopted for Konza City’s development process.

Speaking at the occasion, Eng.

Hilton constructed one of Nairobi's first highrises in 1969 at 20 storeys the building is 61 metres tall.

Taller tower has been updated to 330 metres. And Hilton has officially joined the project articles say that they will occupy the taller building dunno why the renders show the shorter one with the logo. Anyway either way 330 metres coming to Nairobi.
