This is NSSF building I thought and not UAP towers or is it being built somewhere around there?

The tower construction is slated for commencement 'This-2010' in the fringes of UpperHill proper Iam yet to establish the exact location. I think Ruby posted the above(NSSF & the Annex U|C) as glaring towers on the Lower-Hill(2) but not in relation to UAP-Project, but I may be wrong.

Upper-Hill New-Perspective



The skyline of Nairobi is about to transform, thanks to UAP insurance. It is all systems go for the company’s headquarters, a 23 story building at the hill of Nairobi, Upper Hill. The building is set to have the highest point in Nairobi, a record that is currently held by Rahimtulla Towers, also located in Upper Hill.

Planning and design for the project begun in 2008 with a design competition which Triad Architects won. The current team includes Acorn Group (Project Managers), Triad and BPM-SA (Architects), Barker & Barton (QS), Gath Consulting Engineers (Civil & Structural Engineers), Diju Interiors (Interior Designers) and Maiteri Associates & Norkun Intakes (Services Engineers).

The project has been described as a prestigious, iconic and inviting landmark office development that reflects the excellence and success of UAP as one of the leading insurance companies in East Africa.

Thanx Muriithi,

Going by Kisumu Ndogo's perspective shot post, It's most likely going up near the Elgon road area.(though its on upperhill road to be precise I think) That area is going to see so much construction from now until the end of next year. KCB, UAP, and a couple of other projects are now U/C around that area. Cant wait to see the effect on Upperhill's skyline.

Is this deliberate? I personally prefer more glass.
I agree with yah..............thaz y am a fan of the two Delta plazas in westlands and upperhill dispite the fact that they are just cuboids of structures
