LUANDA | Intercontinental Hotel & Casino | 104m | 341ft | 25 fl | Com

Quote:
INTERCONTINENTAL HOTEL & CASINO
Luanda, Angola

Intercontinental Hotel Group (IHG), the world's largest Hotel (by number of rooms) is investing in hotel properties in Luanda and Space Group of Korea was chosen to be the project architect.

The 25-storey hotel covering a total floor area of 53,128.3 sq. m. caters 389 guest rooms. This multi-faceted glass cladded building will surely be a main attraction, for it will glitter at daytime and will illuminate during nightime, emanating the character of a diamond.




*Thanks to all the contributers in the Angola forum who brought this project to light*

Looks nice. Its not too high but quality is good. In 10 to 20 years, Luanda will be a modern city.

These are just some of the projects Under Construction in Luanda. Keep in mind that not a lot of the Luanda forumers actually live in Luanda, Angola; so regular updates can at times be rather difficult.

Here is a link to see all the projects of Luanda, both Under Construction AND Proposed. Keep in mind that there are both A LOT of buildings Under Construction AND A LOT that are Proposed;
