The Riverside project has resumed and the main tower has reached the 22nd floor. Great news for Kin skyline

Great news indeed. Both towers should have same height for harmony's sake.
How about MATRIX TOWER? Still at 12 floors?

Great news indeed...

It will greatly impact Kin's skyline.., specially looking from Brazza....I hope the second tower equally tall in height....

There's more to come ....

The planned 26 floors are already reached yet the construction continues. Have they changed the initial plan to 30+ floors? Wait and see...

Excellent job, Pius! It's the city's tallest tower on the record thus far. No progress on Matrix? If only Rakeen had pursued and completed its GC project, Kinshasa's skyline would be a little different, but now what a mess!
By the way, where is Butembo? In exile already?

Kinshasa MUST upgrade its old towers. Time is long overdue.

In order to upgrade old towers, you need a sound economic environment where bank loans are granted at low interest rate and a state that has an ambitious urban policy which grants tax breaks to owners who upgrade their towers. The current weak banking system (25% annual interest rate) and an irresponsible and clueless state are not propitious for urban renewal.

So sad to hear. Maybe under Tshisekedi's administration Congo's endemic gloomy picture will be brighter

True, with just a sound macroeconomic environment, Kin would have many tall towers built as the need of office spaces increases with a rising economy..

The Financial sector ( banking, insurance) is one that requires use of many office spaces

Residential condos would follow closely...
