Hass Tower: Nairobi, Kenya

Hass Tower is a 66-floor mixed-use high-rise building under construction on a 3-acre plot located in Nairobi’s Upper Hill – dubbed Africa’s fastest rising high-end central business district. The completion of this building will surely secure the title.

Once complete, Hass Tower will rise 980 feet, making it the tallest building in Africa. It will supplant South Africa’s Carlton Centre in Johannesburg, as of now the tallest building in sub-Saharan Africa at 732 feet.
