It is on the compound of AAU's College of Business in Senga Tera. I hope it will be at least 18+ stories tall though---to match the upcoming buildings of the surrounding area.

Is that what was formerly known as " Commerce School?" Is that school going to be demolished?

When the skyline develops a little more, that spot will be a great place to take overlooking photos of Addis.
Even when one goes higher on the hill, there is tremendous views.

I see the Awash Bank building in the background, so this cylinderical building is in good company among the NB/CBE building by Legehar and the NB building further upon Churchil road.

I don't know if the school itself will be demolished, but the rest buildings within its compound might be in order to make room for bigger and taller buildings. I have notices that this is also the case with Arat/Sidist Kilo campuses. All the new giant and fancy buildings (most still under construction) you see in that area belong to the university. They probably made room for these buildings by demolishing the small (up to G+3) buildings.

When seeing photos of Addis there was always this feeling of being underwhelmed, I didn't know why I felt that way.
Then I realised why I had this feeling, I realised how important lines in the middle of the road are, forget the safety stuff but in terms of aesthetics, roads look better with painted lines down the middle. The tarmac looks boring and naked, hope this is resolved with the sidewalk issue which is improving.
