Indeed :It's getting the name of the king. Most of the times if something in Morocco is related to the king then it's a serious project. At least I hope so. They say they have the intention to start building at the beginning of 2015 if the Moroccan government allows them. The Moroccan government is planning to have a free trade agreement with the gulf countries. For that reason many gulf investors have showed interest in Morocco lately.

Sheikh Tarek M. Binladen as planed to start Al Noor Tower project in Morocco. We are studying the Anfa Financial City to be one of our target places to build the tower. If we reach an agreement soon, we are planning to start the project in the first semester of 2015.
We hope that His Majesty the King, Mohammed VI, King of Morocco will like the project. It will be a great honor if His Majesty would like to put His name on what we don't call anymore a tower but a symbol and a landmark for all Africa, for all the world (see below our movie).
We beleive that this beautiful project will inspire all Africain developers to build landmarks everywhere to creates employment and properity to improve Africains population standard of living.
The tower will be localisated in Anfa District a new urban area at the place of old Anfa Airport.
In this district, there is CFC : Casablanca Finance City, a free zone area for companies wanted to established african headquaters.
While developed countries are witnessing an economic slowdown, the African continent continues to stand out as a major source of global growth. Casablanca Finance City (CFC,) which is fully aware of the continent’s huge assets, undertakes to support and sustain Africa’s development and growth through draining foreign investment to the continent.
Casablanca Finance City, nurtured by a national ambition to position the Moroccan finance at the fore regional and international levels, is intended to be a financial center that furthers the development of Africa, and specifically the development of the countries of North, West and Central Africa.
In this perspective, Casablanca Finance City means to be an economic and financial hub and a bridging platform between the north and the south. It seeks to attract and encourage international institutions and investors to invest and operate in North, West and Central Africa and to choose Casablanca as a gateway to access this region.
CFC intends to build an all-encompassing ecosystem evolving around three business categories: financial companies, professional services providers and regional or international headquarters of multinationals.
Severals towers are already planned, including a complex with 200m tower.
