PTA Bank Head Office | Kilimani | 19 fl | Proposed

Quote:
Trade and Development Bank (TDB), formerly known as the Eastern and Southern African Trade and Development Bank (PTA Bank), plans to build a 19-floor office block in Nairobi’s Kilimani area.


TDB joins a growing list of both local and multinational companies investing heavily in Kilimani, Upper Hill and Westlands to house headquarters and earn rental income.

“The project will consist of a nineteen tower floors office block with three basement levels for parking. Upon completion, the development will be PTA Bank’s regional office,” said an environmental impact assessment notice.

The notice said the building is to be built at Kilimani on Lenana Road and will comprise conferencing facilities, office space, coffee shop and restaurant, a plaza, retail units and sky gardens.

The regional multilateral development finance institution, which has been in operation for just over three decades, recently changed its official brand name as it seeks to increase financing.

It announced this December that it will continue to increase financing for priority sectors such as infrastructure, manufacturing, industry and agribusiness across the 20 member states it operates in, over the next five years.

Upper Nairobi has emerged as a key commercial district attracting developers in droves owing to growing demand for office blocks from corporates, NGOs and State agencies that have been moving away from Nairobi’s CBD.

Britam, UAP, Equity Bank, CBA, KCB Bank, Coca *Cola and UAP are some of the firms that have offices in the area or are constructing skyscrapers for letting out.

PTA Bank, whose president and chief executive officer is Admassu Tadesse, has financed numerous agribusiness projects throughout eastern and southern Africa, notably Malawi and Sudan and provided important asset finance facilities to the air-transport sector in the region, with Rwanda Air, Kenya Airways and Ethiopian Airlines benefitting.

The Bank has also funded renewable energy projects like the Turkana Wind Power in Kenya, Hydromax Minihydro in Uganda and industrial projects such as cement and steel plants in DR Congo, Djibouti, Zambia, Rwanda, Ethiopia and Zimbabwe.

Established in 1985, TDB is a multilateral treaty-based financial institution. It boasts of shareholders from 20 member countries in the tripartite region (COMESA, EAC and SADC).

Around 22-25 floors should be the standard in Kili.

Hope the renders will not be mediocre...

By looking at the kind of property they are going to dismantle as they construct this monster, it tells a lot about the future of Kilimani, Kile, Hurlingham and Lavington... in the next few years the above areas will be almost 100% commercial..

^ completely agree. I like the shape but judging it purely on aesthetics, glass would've been far much better.

They should build something looking like the AU HQS in Addis, even if it is shorter it would certainly be better.

Comesa bank set to kick off office block construction

Source

Quote:
Financier Trade and Development Bank (TDB) expects to kick off the construction of a 19-floor office block in Kilimani, Nairobi, this year.
TDB, formerly known as the Eastern and Southern African Trade and Development Bank (PTA Bank), said its technical team is currently working on production of drawings ahead of floating of the construction tender.

It has already sought regulatory approval. The bank, which is a commercial investment arm of the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (Comesa) secretariat, is seeking services from professional landscapers to work with the project implementer.
TDB joins a growing list of local and multinational companies investing in the upmarket Kilimani, Upper Hill and Westlands to house operations as well as generate rental income.
According to the Environmental Impact Assessment report filed with the National Environment Management Authority (Nema), the building will house conferencing facilities for in-house use and office space for hire, coffee shop and restaurant, retail units and two sky gardens on the 3rd and 11th floors.

Maybe the design has changed? But it’s good if this thing get built at least Cytonn towers will not be lonely.
