Might not be related but it worth the news.https://www.businessdailyafrica.com/...x4u/index.html

A four-storeyed serviced apartments property will be demolished in Nairobi’s Westlands to pave the way for development of a 27-floor luxurious hotel-cum-residential complex.

Eighteen Seventy Lower Kabete Ltd says the multibillion-shilling development to accommodate 375 apartments and 251 parking bays on the two plots is located on the junction connecting Peponi, Karuna and Lower Kabete roads.

According to regulatory filings, it will accommodate 46 studio apartments from the first to 23 floors, 86 one-bedroomed apartments, 243 two-bedroom units and 24 duplexes of three -bedroom apartments located on the 24th and 25th floors.

The 27th floor has been reserved for an expansive sky lounge next to six executive meeting rooms while a high-end restaurant will sit on the property’s 26th floor as well as a gym, a sauna and a heated swimming pool.

The environment impact assessment (EIA) study says the property — neighbouring Sarit Centre, Westgate Mall, Western Heights among other multi-storeyed commercial and residential buildings — has been designed Bowman Associates Architects (BAA).

Bowman Associates Architects designed the 20-floor commercial office development One Place building in Westlands, the planned 40-floor high Montave Upper Hill and multi-storied triple tower development, Park Central hosting 350 residential units overlooking Nairobi National Park and adjacent to the Southern Bypass.

Kenyans who may be opposed to project have 30 days to submit written submissions to its Nairobi offices.

The renders for this building are on the BAA website, a bit unnattractive for BAA standards but their finishes come out well so i hope it will be good. Its going to be called Westlands apartments. A tall and wide building.

^I have been to taller buildings but somehow this one feels taller. Just passed there on foot and pictures don't do it justice. The plot is big and this cluster of buildings is a game changer. Its like a new CBD coming up. One concern is the current roads around it can't handle its expected car traffic.

Pass there jana, the chiromo lane will be dual carriage. It's already very wide as they are building the tunnel on one half already.

I was going to say they’ll improve the roads when the buildings are done. Or may be.

Walking beneath that cluster invokes the same awe as walking in Manhattan....minus the walkability at street level.

What's the real height of the hotel tower? Cause I don't think the difference between the hotel tower and office tower is 40 meters.

Why are you guys estimating the height of this building when it's right there in the topic.

Looking great, but the smog is becoming a real issue in Nairobi. The horizon looks hazy and dusty.

That is fog not smog. Cold mornings in Nairobi can get very misty at times.
