I see a sky scrapper made in the 70's with just plain white colored exoskeleton...and one side has some glass...the other side has boring small and spaced windows....

EXAMPLE:


- Small Spaced Windows + WHITE Exoskeleton

but what I don't feel is the base of the building...it looks like a miniature prison with tiny spaced windows between boring white concrete...

The only part I like is the glass plating ...helipad...basically the top of building but some parts look old school 70's style...

I just asked my big brother what this render looks like and he said the same thing...



"An outdated 70's/60's style with a few modifications..."

Just like the empire state building...with out the nice top...it would be a giant concrete in the middle of New York...!!!

The bottom part is exactly how the current building looks like. I feel they had no option because its not a free standing structure, other buildings are built immediately on both its sides

Looks like the tower is back on track

Quote:
The national environmental regulator has rejected claims by Nairobi governor Evans Kidero that NSSF does not have its approval to construct the Hazina Trade Centre, which is set to be Nairobi’s tallest tower on completion.

The National Environment Management Authority (Nema) said in an interview it had renewed plans by NSSF to extend the eight-storey Hazina Trade Centre to 39 floors in June last year, having first given the authorisation in September 2011.

Approvals by the environmental authority remain valid for two years.

Building of Nairobi’s tallest tower could stall again

Source: Daily Nation



Construction of the National Social Security Fund’s skyscraper on Hazina Trade Centre might once again stall until a row on its compliance with the environmental impact assessment is settled.

Plans to build the 39-storey NSSF tower had earlier hit a brick wall due to a tender dispute.

Speaking at the ground-breaking of Garden City last week, Nairobi County Governor Evans Kidero noted that the fund did not factor in human and traffic volume around the area at the moment before starting the construction.

“I have instructed that in the next two weeks, NSSF should present the validation of environmental impact assessment of the tower, within which construction is not allowed at the site,” said Dr Kidero.

He noted that traders who operate in the area have also not been consulted.

According to Dr Kidero, the building was approved in the 1990’s and re-approved in March save for the environmental impact assessment. He instructed the company to provide documents showing the validation before it can be allowed to continue with the construction.

NSSF had applied for approval from the National Environment Management Authority in 2011, a nod which remains in force for two years, but the governor insists that the approval needs to be reviewed.

“We need to ensure that individuals operating within the location of the construction are safe,” said Dr Kidero.



I am Not Sure what Kidero is up to. Protecting the Public or protecting some one else?

Something gave me the feeling that this wrangling wasn't completely over.

NSSF barred from awarding tenders as projects face audit


IN SUMMARY

The projects to be affected by the new orders are the Sh6.7 billion construction work at the Hazina Trade Centre, currently hosting Nakumatt Lifestyle Supermarket, the extension of the parking lot at the NSSF building and development of 100 flats at Nairobi, Milimani.

Following the recent sacking of Tom Odongo as managing trustee of NSSF, the government has cancelled all projects that were tendered but not yet awarded or started. The projects will be tendered afresh. Further, that all projects awarded and on-going will be subjected to a comprehensive audit by Efficiency Monitoring Unit,” Mr Kambi noted.
this project is awarded already so it wont be stopped but subjected to a comprehensive audit by Efficiency Monitoring Unit

NSSF’s 39-storey tower in doubt as Kambi cancels contracts

The decision by government to cancel all pending tenders by the National Social Security Fund and subject those that have already been awarded to audit has cast a shadow of doubt on several mega projects earmarked by the Sh126 billion retirement scheme and exposed it to court battles.

Some of the projects expected to be affected by Labour secretary Kazungu Kambi’s declaration on Tuesday include the Sh6.7 billion extension of Hazina Towers to 39 floors, construction of 100 apartments along State House Road dubbed Milimani Apartments and the Sh80 billion Mavoko City, a project approved by the Cabinet last week.

So, is this project dead for now?

Since NssF has deep pockets, why didn't they just go for the second tallest building in Africa?
