I saw some inconsistencies in that story.It says the project will be built on 2,500 sq metres of the 7 acres.First of all it is hard to find a seven acre land in Westlands.They would need to have several plots.Secondly,why don't we have details of the project during the groundbreaking?How many floors?How many sq metres of floor area?

IF Kidero and many big name mofo's were at the groundbreaking then I think we have nothing to worry about

and they AVIC is Chinese...none to worry about

I doubt it can be behind the Mirage. the land there doesn't look like seven-acre to me as quoted. However, of late i have seen some clearing and preparation depicting something major coming up on the piece.

I saw the site. Its quite a big parcel of land that was fenced with white corrugated iron sheet fence branded with avic logos. The site fence covers part of chiromo lane and westlands road just after you enter chiromo lane from Waiyaki way. See map below.

So the 500 million shillings budget you read about might be incorrect.Kidero mentioned it will add to the skyline meaning it will have good height plus it is mixed use.That is good location.Brian unakuwanga macho

They say they will use 2,500 sq metres for the building so that is a 50m by 50m base but the height is not specified
