.

Guys reliable sources @uhda_KE @crowneplazanbi and @nairobihill indicate that there's a 45 storey building that's been proposed for UpperHill road, they are collecting residents views at this point.

Hopefully once we get more details SE9 can change the thread title.

A good sign is that AWEMAC (environmental consultancy company) is already doing an environmental feasibility study.

I also believe the proposed Kenya Reinsurance tower is to be located on Upper Hill Road but the last time I heard it was in the initial stages

I think it might be by Crowne Plaza because I see their twitter handle up there and they may be expanding in Upper Hill

I think Crowne Plaza owns most of the buildings they run their hotels in.They cater to business people for accomodation and conferences.I saw on wikipedia they have 390 hotels worldwide with 98 in the pipeline for expansion.This might be one of them

Crowne Plaza is an IHG (Intercontinental Hotels) brand but the one in Upperhill is a franchise of Maple star hotels, I dont think either of them owns the building.

Maple Star Hotel Group run Crowne Plaza under a franchise deal as are many of IHG hotels.Well it is just speculation on who is behind this proposal but someone mentioned upcoming big projects in Upper Hill this year and could have more info
