China’s CSCEC to build highest tower in Africa

Hass Towers, an iconic mixed-use development will open its doors in 2020 and will consist of  Grade A offices, a five-star Hilton hotel, plus a luxury retail and entertainment complex.

The tower will stand over 300 metres high, taller than the current record holder, the Carlton Centre in South Africa which has 50 floors and is 223 metres tall.

Construction of the foundations for Hass Towers is due to start in April this year, when the project will be officially launched in Kenya.

“It has not been an easy road. CSCEC went through a rigorous tender system which they won over ten international companies including European, Turkish as well as other Chinese competitors. Hass Group awarding the contract to CSCEC demonstrates a stronger growing economic partnership between the Chinese Government and the Kenyan Government, and is a testament to Kenya’s economic and political stability. This project will give CSCEC a majestic entry point into Africa,” said Hass Petroleum Group Chairman Abdinassir Ali Hassan.
