It is beyond words how the Ride service transformed and revolutionized the transport service in Addis, I am sure most of us have experienced how terrible the blue ladas can be, I once paid 400 birr for a trip from Piasa to around Yohannes Church. I have heard stories of tourists and foreigners made to pay thousands by ruthless blue Taxi Drivers, I have a great deal of admiration for this lady.

Don’t you think it is worthy to hang out at “Dembel city center” till Eagle Hills is completed? Knowing the locations of landmark buildings in Addis will save you time and help you NOT to "Get-Lost-In-ETH". You can easily specify your destination to the taxi driver using those buildings until the city planners know how assign street names and numbers.
LOL ...

Dembel should be demolished. You can say Olympia, Getu, Shewa Dabo, Shell for landmark and no I don't hang out much in Addis when I go there and Dembel will never be on my list. I can only think of a rotten banana each time I pass by it.

Not sure why how much bandwidth he ate up uploading it has anything to do with highlighting bad modern design as good. If the title was buildings in Addis then all would have been kosher.

By the way GPS and Ride works fine in Addis using the current street names as haphazard Addis is. My comment is about design anyway.

How sad it will be if they have to spend money to demolish this thing which cost money to construct in the first place.

If they don't put some covering, the concrete could be prematurely weathered to to the point where this is necessary. I'm not a structural engineer, but you have to imagine that it wasn't designed-- particularly given the quality of engineering work here-- to be exposed to the elements for so long.

If I was a businessman looking to invest into real estate KK would be the first building I would like to get on a fire sale. I just don't get what the bottleneck is. Is there more to the story?
