My thought is either coz its about to be constructed and he was just mentioning'new projects' or they've changed plans to build the convention center instead.But remember this is NSSF.They are talking about managing/investing 120b yearly so they can actually undertake all this projects at same time.Nssf built most buildings around anniversary towers..at almost the same time.so they can do it again

I believe you, I know they have the muscle to achieve their goals. Let's wait and see how it goes and how fast.

They have invited for bids, shortlisted the bidders and selected the winner so to them probably the next big announcement will involve this project; they dont want to lump it with others at design stage.

Have it on credible authority that construction kicks off today (3rd June 2013). Most work will be done at night to avoid disruption of business. Will dig up more details

Finally the news we have been awaiting for the last two years is here and this giant construction will start tomorrow.

Quote:
The National Social Security Fund (NSSF) will Friday morning commission the construction of the tallest office tower in Nairobi, marking an end to a tender dispute that had stalled ground breaking for the building for more than two years.

The statutory workers’ retirement fund invited new bids for the 39-storey Hazina Trade Centre early this year following cancellation of the previous tender by the courts.

READ: NSSF revives plan to build Nairobi’s tallest office tower

The fund had in 2011 awarded the construction contract to Cementer Limited, but companies that lost the bid — China Jiangxi International Kenya and China Wu Yi — challenged the tendering process in court.

The tower is to be built on top of the structure currently housing Nakumatt Lifestyle in Nairobi’s central business district.

“The proposed extension works will involve the construction of a 31-storey office tower block to complement the current eight floors (4 basement levels, Ground Floor, 2 Mezzanine &1 Podium),” said NSSF Thursday in a statement.

It is estimated the building will cost Sh6 billion going by Cementers Limited’s quote in their cancelled bid. The bid was the third lowest among the 10 that were submitted then; China Wu Yi was the lowest bidder at Sh5.9 billion.

NSSF had nullified China Jiangxi bid because the company did not submit the current registration certificate for its sub-contractor, Raerex E.A. Ltd, which was to install air conditioning.

The court noted that there was no reason for disqualifying China Jiangxi at the preliminary stage of tender evaluation as it had confirmed the sub-contractor’s registration verbally with the Ministry of Public Works.

The Times Tower, which houses the Kenya Revenue Authority, is currently the tallest building in East Africa at 140 metres high but could lose this position to the Hazina Trade Centre upon completion.

I hope we get to see the Renders tomorrow....
