I like it But I think the towers should be taller so that they'd dominate the skyline of the CBD. And that sort of small tower connecting the two large towers needs to go. Imo it's hideous and I don't see how it would relate to the other buildings. Remove that thing and just add in two sky bridges instead.

Btw, is this project proposed by an Ethiopian company?

With the kind of budget envisaged(Abt - $70m) we could be talking 30-40.. flrs. Although these are early days, Its possible the designers could make alterations here and there the designs looks brilliant to me.

About Haile Selssie, thats a household name in Kenya; there is a main street in Nairobi named after him, otherwise its all Kenyan*.

I Saw the Old Staff quarters/houses at Railways Muthurwa marked a big "X" for demolition.Landhies road is also getting a facelift,it has been added a new layer of tarmack and its pretty smooth.An extra lane is also being added and the sidewalk and pavements being laid afresh.I guess all these is being done to make the project more attractive to investors.

Yeah, that's one of the hot property growth areas in and around the Nairobi CBD. There is the proposed SE development along Landhies road that's going to be a sizable urban renewal project when it commences. KR just as the Catholic church owns some of the largest tracts of land in Kenya(excluding politicians of course) it's good for them to start using this largesse.

KR recently announced their determination to pursue some of the Govt(parastatal)-private patnership projects that they have on cards, --I believe this is among them-* alongside the Golf City Nairobi, Kisumu and Mombasa(Marina) also Westlands among others.

Could'nt agree more. That part of town may just change forever when this project finally-hits the ground.

Court case and priorities. I think KR have their plate full already and my bet is they will first want to focus on the Nairobi commuter rail project and the upgrade of the Mombasa-Kampala line.

Though these court cases are really getting on my nerves.

Barring this project for a moment actually the government itself despite the tradmark bickering has come along way, many plans like underground cyberoptics cable seemed like a pipe dream just few years ago are now bygones. Right now the government is implementing the most extensive roads(Highway) upgrade since Kenya won her independence and the private sector(& diaspora) has not been left behind especially in the construction area-real estate.

In my opinion the biggest hurdle(fear) may not be this projects realisation persee but by how much from the original designs will be scaled down. We have seen it with virtually all large constructions especially govt afflicted ones; Times Towers(40 some to 38) and GPO Hq(36 to 28). Otherwise for Kenya coming of age I will be very optimistic 7/10.
