(OLD PICS)




The Al-Mogran Development Project is an over $4 billion development project undertaken by the Alsunut Development Company that seeks to develop several thousand acres in downtown Khartoum along the spot where the White Nile and Blue Nile merge to form the Nile. The discovery of oil in Sudan has provided the Sudanese government with a billion dollar surplus that allows the funding of this project.

Starting in 2004, the project has two main phases:

phase one, the Central Business District development

phase two, the residential estate portion.

The Al-Mogran project, when completed, will produce 11,000,000 square feet (1,000,000 m²) of office space, 1,100 villas, housing for 45,000 residents and visitors, and jobs for 60,000 Sudanese.

Why? Why? Why?

Why is it only 175 + 4x90?



Great design, really love it, but it deserves to be 300 + 4x 150, not less.

But anyway, even this tall it is looking great.

Idd the conflict in Darfur... but maybe the land or hole Africa needs time to develop. I think the future for Africa can be good ass they invest the money in the right way. I think little by little Afica is rising a have lots of examples of big projects goiing on in Africa.

I know it is Africa, I was talking about the design, not the location.

Those oil company HQ look a lot like Burj al Arab.
