That plot is not worth less than Kshs1 billion. They can talk to the banks and they would gladly finance building of a skyscraper using the land as collateral...plus the Koinanges have deep pocket. Thy can finance some extra costs.

Or better yet, they can finance the building of a multi-story parking garage to really maximize their profits. They can always add a building onto that, and voila, you transform a vast barren piece of land in the downtown of one of the most important cities on the continent, into something much more productive.

Like it has been said before, the Nairobi County should def push them to more efficiently utilized this land.

The road hosting the UAP towers is just Pathetic. Huge potholes right at their gate.

The Skyline of Nairobi is changing
Last year in April, I posted this, its good to see that the skyline has added more towers including how prism tower will stand out. Also with the Ngong hills as the backdrop, Nairobi will be spectacular

Wow. Upperhill is bigger than I thought. We have a long way to go before filling that gap between UAP and Prism/NSSF. We can only hope for twin towers or more projects like Avic. If the uptake of high-rise apts like Pearl Residency and Le mac gains popularity in Kenya, then we can have hope .Otherwise it will take eternity fill that gap if we are only building office space in upperhill.

I recently got back from mombasa after a year away from Nairobi. I have to say that this was the shattering of a wall for me. Its one really majestic structure.
