Hass Group has announced it has signed an agreement worth $195m with China State Construction Engineering Corporation (CSCEC) to build the tallest build in Africa. 


Located in Nairobi, the construction of the foundations for the Hass Towers is due to commence next month.


The building will stand over 300 metres high with 67 storeys; a height that will be considerably taller than the current record holder, the Carlton Centre in South Africa (at 50 floors and 223m tall).


Mr Hassan, Hass Group Chairman, comments: “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.”
