Almost looks like "the One".Any details on this?Who is the developer and what are the chances this thing will get built?
Once the court cases are over with Britam. Acorn will enter full steam ahead.


I like how this tower will be a giant FU statement to Britam :lol:

ohh.Just saw its Acorn.I guess there is a good chance!If they still dont have any legal Issues with Britam.I can see they are working hard to minuscule Britam!hope britam shows them who is boss by building something even taller!haha.The battle is not over!

This building jabavu and The ONe(if it ever gets built) would complement each other well!

It looks like its close to Kcb and britam.How far is jabavu from this buildings?
How did you know the location but that would be the ideal location in Upper Hill although with that height anywhere in Upper Hill would do.Jabavu project is next to Rahimtulla.It is a race for the biggest real estate project to kick off in Nairobi

I dont think this project was listed in the suit by Britam, the projects were in Kajiado and Machakos counties.
I thought the fight was for the money?

The cases might be coming to a draw down anyway since this project was uploaded about 5 days ago.

It was a fight for four projects worth 3.9 billion, I suspect that's why arboretum square, ololua etc never started construction.

This looks like a totally different project.

first, they they need (britam and acorn) to settle their court cases then I can have a slight hope, second, the first picture of the render just shows how acorn is bringing the fight to britam if you see how they have dwarfed seriously britam, could that be the reason why britam was trying hard to build it's building to 40 floors? who knows,third could the site be the one I mentioned at the junction of lower hill and haille selassie just saying.and what I know about acorn, they have bought land along lenana rd in kilimani and the mlolongo mall is call skyway mall next to the recently completed succasa buildings.

on a second though t it cant be that site am thinking going by the renders. ..it seems to be next to its rival britam, anyway its becoming depressing and unenthusiastic that none big project hasn't started yet :bash:and britam is hell bent to derail acorn's progress...
