Kenya’s first skyscraper is set to open to the public this month after construction crews pulled a 6-foot-tall crane from the ground to put the building up for sale.
The tower, built in 2011, is part of the $100 million renovation of the World’s Treetop Hotel, which has a capacity for 8,000 guests and opened in 2010.
The construction is being carried out by local firms Kondik Group, and Kondika and Kishore Associates.
The owners of the hotel are the same as the owner of the other skyscraper, the World Tower, which is on the opposite side of the country from the Treetopolos.
The project is the first in Kenya’s Tawera-Kenya region, a region where construction of skyscrapers has been banned since 2007.
