Addis Ababa Exhibition Center ~ Proposed ~ Mixed Use ~ 35 Fl. x 1, 12 Fl. x 1



Project Name: Addis Ababa Exhibition Center
Location: Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
Projected year of completion: 2011
Area: 750,000 sf

Description:

The design for the Addis Ababa Exhibition Centre Site creates a fully integrated and pedestrian centered mixed-use development of over 70,000 square meters built on nearly 4.5 acres in north east Africa. Providing dynamic retail, food and beverage amenities, office space, cultural and entertainment facilities, and a business hotel, the design of this development incorporates the existing adjacent Addis Ababa Museum, providing an iconic destination retail, entertainment and cultural environment. Serving both local inhabitants and visitors alike, the design solution seeks to create a lively and informal ground level experience tied to the natural landscape coupled with a more formal and structured experience that rises from the lower level as a series of well sculpted towers.

^ indeed. I'll believe it when I see it. any updates on the construction so far?

if it does get built it would change the city's skyline dramatically. it's also nice to see a building with the highest quality material, unlike most buildings that are now being built.

From the render it looks like this is just south of Meskel Sqaure and west of Bole rd., in between Bole and Debre Zeyit.

Wow! I really hope that they are serious about this cause am tired of projects that never get built.

Most of the projects that have been posted here for Ethiopia have been promptly completed.
