Lets wait. The chineese have been busy on the site. The site is located behind Athi river mining, The Mirage and Mash auto on one side, the Imperial bank building on the other and is attached to both Westlands road and Chiromo road. I have always wondered who owns this parcel of land with dilapidated buildings. They are yet to bring the buildings down though.

I understand the project is quite huge. From the information I have, it will have a base of around 8 floors and from there four towers will sprout. The tallest could be in the region of 42 floors. Lets wait for the renders to come out then we can confirm the exact details plus the design. I hope it will be masterpiece of art. I also understand the opposite land along Chiromo road could also be theirs.

This could probably be the proposed building. Found it on their website but with very scant info. But it could also be the other proposed center building in Sri Lanka

I don't think that's the proposal for kenya. Might be the Sri Lanka one.

I could not care how ugly a building was as long as it was tall.If they could build the ugliest 50 storey building in Kenya I would be happy.The renders above are actually appealing to me

Could this spell doom for our "African Dubai"?
Or I guess AVIC has nothing to benefit from a special economic zone.

I know they say the company specializes in six major business sectors, including international aviation, trade & logistics, retail & high-end consumer goods, real estate & hotel management, electronic high technology and development of resources.

Anyone know what their immediate plans are for Africa?

So how come nobody knows shit with guesses ranging from 15 floors to 50 floors? Come on guys, a four tower 50 floor each project is a massive project that could see Nairobi being home to the four Africa's tallest towers. If this project is real then it should be the most talked about project in the African section.

I am also a little concerned by the lack of information but it might be a strategy you never know.We have heard of the 'Dubai' in Athi River by the Chinese but nothing has come of it yet

Let's say if the tallest be 50 floors then the shortest won't be anything less than 25 floors - that's approximately between 110m - 260m. Still awesome.
