Upper Hill's skyline is starting to look better than most African CBDs.

The KCB Headquarters Building under construction in Upper-hill, Nairobi, was designed by PLANNING SYSTEMS SERVICES LTD, the Architects of several other Iconic buildings in Nairobi, including I&M tower, Rahimtullah & LonRho house. Pinnacle projects are the project managers, NOT THE ARCHITECTS.

I doubt CLDT is in this picture, you'd have seen NSSF to its right. If it were it would be far left but that building is to the right of Rahimtula. It cannot be CLDT really but I may be wrong!

I don't know the name of the new building but i can see it and for sure it is not CDLT and since you are providing the new name i believe you. We have been waiting for the UAP tower for so long, if it has finally begun, we say hongera!! and look fwd to a completed tower of how many floors...?
