The competition for the highest building in Africa just got stiffer.
Watamu beach in Malindi, Kenya is set to host the tallest skyscraper in Africa.
The upcoming skyscraper dubbed ‘Palm Exotica’ will stand at 370 metres compared to Pinnacle Tower that was to be the tallest at 300 metres
The 61-storey building's architectural design borrows from simple traditionally crafted art pieces from the local culture.
The building, which will be a mixed-use development, will boost tourism in the coastal area, which is one of Kenya’s top tourist destinations.

All those people having grudge....Free up buddies so buildings stop being constructed by private individuals so that they can do government stuff and plus i know Kenya is way better than most of those your countries which seem to 'focus' on poverty than buildings😉😉....Let go and say Well done where it's deserved😅😅
What use does Africa have for Tallest buildings? This concept only works in cold small cities without space. We have enough space in Africa and we are tropical... So, I don't get the logic in this. Am willing to bet money on the fact that 60% of the space in that building will not be used.
This is an Italian design, being built by South Africans, NY, and Italian Billionaire Franco Rosco, you can’t chant Africa for Africans if your building have an Italian tag, like U.S. Prez Trump say make America great again, but his hats are made in CHINA, defeats the purpose... Right!
African countries should just start competing with each other for the best economy and stable country. That’ll help focus their attention on their own countries and the interest of their people first before anything else. Hopefully that’ll get rid of the corruption
I think a lot of people are really not understanding the mechanics of how a nation grows in regards to Kenya only.
Kenya income comes from VAT, licences, other forms of taxation, agriculture and tourism mainly. Sure enough the skyscraper is doesn't guarantee that it will be Kenyan owned but it will definitely create jobs to the locals and more so the act as a tourist attraction, this will in turn boost tourism. This will be key as we aim to attract investors because we need investors whether foreign or local to make our economy grow.
Also the idiot who said we have 75% poverty rate is wrong, we are a land of contrast undoubtedly, but our poverty rate stands at 33% as per 2018 and our literacy rate stands at 78%. I believe our education system is not the best nor the worst or worse or bad in any matter but can be improved to highest standards.
U ar one person I have seen posting good sense. A lot of comments it's like when we were kids boasting about our family car etc being the best. There is too much negativity in fellow Africans comments like we don't wish well for others
In kenya its the private sector who buid sky crippers not govt like dubai, the pay taxes like avic africa headquaters world trade centre, the have paid 8 million dollars so far and yet the buiding is under construction when completed direct employment 3000 .what else do you want, kenya was ranked 3rd in the world in real estae, not everbody is happy the want a shit hole ravaged africa and kenya.
Question: Is that waste of money "Tower of Babel" going to; Feed, Clothe, Educate, Provide Medical care and Prosperity for the Kenyan People's? We all know it isn't so instead of building a disguised IDOLATRY TOWER for worship, which is an Egotistical Phallic fertility symbol of worship to ancient pagan and babylonian deviant Nimrod..
Use the money to RAISE THE KENYAN PEOPLE...!!
When are we ever going to stop trying to out-due the colonizer? This is like trying to say my phallic monument is bigger than my former / current supermacist master's. The statement it makes is: Assume the position as we continue victimizing you!
Tourist attraction and that’s all. That idea has its benefits and it’s place, but not investing the cost for that building into building communities, infrastructure, education and jobs would be a travesty.
Exactly. Taxes, construction and the few/many jobs available after businesses are established in the building. Its true Greed among the leaders is what harms the nation. If only accountability and prudence would prevail, Kenyans would feel the impact of such investments. Unfortunately, the the benefits rarely trickle down to the citizens.
antony mutie I see your point. So then the only way Kenya would benefit from this building is if there are taxes collected by Kenya and/or Kenyans build the building.
I just hope money is
re-circulating back into building up all of Kenya and its people. Kenya does have its own tax system in place. However, there are some serious underlying issues with its system in which greed may take precedence. The government must be for its own people’s benefit, rather than allow outside investors simply get rich off of Kenya.
What's wrong with Kenyans? How is it wasting money? If I was able to build a building with 63 store high and give a kobs to more then 200 hundred employees, how's that stupid? Government is not going to bring you a food in the house, get up and work with what you can.
Kenya is 100% dependent on foreign aid. This is just silly. Even if they built it, Only rich foreigners and the very exclusive elites in kenya will enjoy It.
What's the motto at the Strip Clubs again??
You can look but you can't touch!! 😎😎😎
The link clearly States the following............
"Use of Goods and Services by the UN"
"The goods and services are part of the voluntary contributions made by the member countries to the UN. These are usually not used in to fund core UN activities".
I guess for some people there is no other choice but to spell it out for them!
COOLER Man you are insane ooh my my. You just proved to the whole world you know nothing buddy zero zero. You should be ashamed of yourself lol 😂 ignorance is no longer a Defence so please do more research on kenya and fortunately nowadays all the info is out there for you to see. Google, YouTube etc etc go everywhere and get some education. You really must be a lonely sad human being if your arguments are anything to go by. Ooh come on. Ooh while you are at it please also check countries with the highest and lowest debt in the world.
Since I did not make this ridiculous claim, the pardon to provide any prove or some sort is NOT ON ME.
Furthermore, Even if I wanted to, it would be next to impossible to get one because such a situation do not simply exist in reality, but rather only in the heads of delusional individuals.
However, if you decide to take a face value of what was presented earlier by the "Delusional peasant" as a factual evidence, I would highly recommend you take an English class too.
Kenya is a poor Country which relies on tourism. The average Kenyan do not have the basic health care or living standard. The average Kenyan also live below the poverty line.
Their own government has let them down by exploiting them of their ignorance.
The Kenyan government would get foreigners to visit their Country and present their own people like they're some kind of animals.
foreigners would often ride around on a Jeep whilst wearing shorts, hats, binoculars, and of course carrying cameras. They are also escorted by armed guards while they stroll through the villages, taking pictures and some souvenirs.
Now Does that resemble or remind you of a trip to the ZOO!
The Kenyan Government has a responsibility to it's people, which is to create Jobs, Education, Health Care and the whole nine yard, not to treat them in this inhumane manor.
Im not Kenyan, but I say.....
"people should NOT be treated like animals".
+Haile Desalegne English may not be your first language but just ask yourself..........
How can a country which receives financial assistance from the west and the UN be the TOP TEN financial contributers to the United Nations???
It's not logical at all!!
A link was already provided by some peasant and I've debunk it.
Some people will criticize what the fuck do you want individual private developers do for you, spoon feed you?? It’s a market economy nobody is holding anyone from investing, so people saying why not using resources to help the poor.... get a life that’s an investment that will create jobs
Is it going to build by African engineers or Chinese? If it's building by Africans it makes sense and shows the intelligence of our people, but if it is building by chinese I don't give it a dam because it's a shame!!!
You black motherfucking Kenyans are a disgrace to the African continent you Africans are so dumb it's not even funny this shit is being built by Italians and fucking new Yorkers and shit you will never progress you are just a disgrace to the world you fucking let foreigners come in your fucking country and build a fucking tower? What the fucking he'll is wrong with you degenerates you will always be dumb you are getting your fucking country colonized again and you will be slaves and you will never have your fucking country back you are a slave and nothing else you are a inferior race you are subhuman and you never will progress you will always fucking remain in a slave master state and you will always be a slave you Kenyans need to be wiped out because you cannot take control of your own country you are letting colonizers come and do shit in your country and that whole continent is about to fall to the colonizers you Africans are useless to the world.
Am Kenyan ,do you want government to build house for you?lazy people you always blame the government for no reason even developed countries like America people work their ass off to live their dream life you are here doing nothing you want government to do it for you nonsense.
We need to get our priorities in order before we start building tall pretty buildings. And a lot of the comments are saying it looks European or “white” I don’t care at the end of the day their cities look really nice and modern. We shouldn’t stop ourselves doing nice things just because the Europeans are doing it as well. Why do africans like isolation so much?
This is why poor countries stay poor. Greedy politicians and businessmen that have no real care for the people finance projects like these while their country has issues with poverty, health care, and access to quality education. I hope one day countries like Kenya, Somalia (my homeland), Nigeria, and more can finally rid themselves of corrupt politicians. I have no problem with skyscrapers being built in Africa but the issue comes in when many of your people are extremely poor.
+0Guiltyone0 bitch who said China is building it .And Kenya has 80% literacy rate so don't come with stupid naive statements without evidence .And Africa has funds now how about you worry about where you at without sounding like a jealous redneck
+Blacks vs Everybody my point is spending money on a pointless dick waving building that might be underwater faster then its built is an incredibly stupid move, and then letting China build it means after 100 years or so when africa doesnt have the funds to actually pay for it they will come back and claim ownership. africa has been in a bad spot for a while and now its quiet litteraly selling its future just so it can say its got a big dick now. its this lack of forward thinking is why africa has been stagnate for so long.
Well S Brown, in the process of building that skyscraper, people will be employed and of course even after completion...people will still be employed. Or you had any ideas...This answer comes from Northern Cape, South Africa.
The economy is propelled by many sectors; the government is the major stakeholder in education which is solely to be blamed if there are issues within the education sector. So let private investors pursue what brings revenue to them and the government. Construction of the skyscraper will create thousands if not hundreds of job opportunities unlike education which is nowadays not a guarantee for better life. Learned fellows are struggling because what they learned was theory and they cant't make it practical (the education system doesn't enhance creativity) to earn a living not forgetting the issues of corruption, recycling of old folks and Godfathers.
+Abby94 so you are now laughing at people living below the poverty line...i might take a wild guess and say that your country is one of those that have plundered africa to its core and are still doing it...you want Africa to remain as some poor village that you go to on safari.
+Charles Emeka talk about Nigeria's electricity problems, and how your people are dying trying to cross into Europe or how your women are being trafficked for prostitution in Europe. Nigerian drug traffickers are being jailed in Asia😂😂 so leave Kenya alone and let us develop our country in peace😒😒
+Charles Emeka Asshole why don't you use that energy to stop your women from doing prostitution in Europe and men from drug trafficking how many Nigerians dying to crossing Mediterranean sea to Europe. Kenya never asked for your help
+ilistor 2298 LIE!!!!
The people who lived in and near those castles were so-called "knights". People who were constantly pillaging everywhere they went....MURDERING, RAPING, STEALING. you know, the only things they did AND STILL DO.
And you also stole the materials to build those castles.
+Bern Bern there were many European castles that were not built by any African resources. and I'm talking about the medival ones
what's funny to me us the insults and your reply just proves you bad logic,
heck before the European discoverd Africa they had architecture building that was built without African resources.
and God put resources all over the world it's just Africa has more resources than anywhere else, this is why African leaders should protect their resources.
even if these whites stole almost everything from Africa that still doesn't change the fact thatour oppressors invented almost everything so using that they stole every resources from Africa will become completely invalid when it comes to invention. ys sometimes we gotta speak the truth even when it hurts.
+white man invented everything u use facts The only thing you did was to STEAL EVERTHING. Without Africa your delusional asses would be in your caves holding your cups asking for spare change.
That is why all of your wrinkled ass presidents from England, Germany, America, India, France, and still China are falling over one another to get access to the natural resources that God put in the EARTH OF AFRICA. NOT ENGLAND, FRANCE, GERMANY, BELGIUM, SWITZERLAND, AMERICA, INDIA, CHINA, SPAIN, OR PORTUGAL.
GET IT DUMBSSS!!!
white man invented everything u use facts you comments is useless this is 21 century country trade you idiots of Kenyan can give another white country resource and the white country can give them what they need is a economy you ignorant as white country cause you brainwashed there is no white or black people if someone was white then they will be white like a sheet of paper or something else go educated yourself 🤦🏽♀️🤦🏽♀️🤦🏽♀️🤦🏽♀️😫😫
stop waiting money,we visit Kenya to see animals and people running and also see tall people who look like Somali (mixture of Bantu's,nilotes and,cushites)people,from your biggest fan from South Africa
Another Chinese money - If Black people we can’t be masons and build our homes - why should we trust them ( building) - our Engineer are from overseas- and build building for us ... come on - no need for a tallest building-
Building school or something that will help the citizens-
+Gabriel M thank u. Blacks need us and know it. Tabt why the excuses never stop as to why blacks cant get a head. With out us this modern wprld wprld not exist but with out blacks we would be better off
+Surprise Awofemi hahhahahahahhaaj u went from nothing to shit we bilt. The phones the TV the sky scrapers hahahah we did that. Ur ppl invent nothing. Everything ur usless ape ppl have we gave to u. We stol nothing. Afirca has never been advanced
Ur 20 years behind us and not that u invent u buy or receive this stuff from us. Ur race is usless. All was has been and "chill and give us some time?" U have had 2000 years of recorded historey .....how much time do u need? It's simple ur ppl need mine my ppl do not need urs. Facts
Many youths homeless sleeping on the streets of Nairobi and they are building skyscrapers?! Stupid Government, I wish I could use this building to wipe my ass. Tissue paper is more valuable than this garbage!!!mko na ujinga sana
+kenyandamu I don't think he's being jealous I think he's telling the truth you see more of the businesses are foreign owned than it being owned by blacks and if the Chinese are not building this city the Europeans or Arabs are building it and it's a shame that almost all of the projects are not 100% made by Africans just like that eko Atlantic city in Nigeria that company did not come from the black African mind it came from an Arabs mind and also that city by the name of centenary city project diffenately did not come from the black African mind that hole project is being planned also in Nigeria by the United Arab Emirates which is a damn shame it's ridiculous.
Stop being jealous ... Take a trip to Kenya and see how we design beautiful traditional themed buildings. There is something called GOOGLE. It's a very good search Engine. Google some of these beautiful Kenyan buildings and you will notice that they were designed and built by Kenyans because we have a very good Education system.
+Sistahtari Tafari yes you are so right. Lets never build anything big ever again. In fact lets get rid of the houses,return to mud huts or even caves. Kill the farmer's who stole outer lands. Think of all the investment from china ounces we renounce these oppressors. We will be free. Bla,bla,bla..........
Chattyjay The higher the building the greater the target, the more weight density of given area. The longer it takes to get down if something malfunctions. These people only care about building tall buildings to satisfy their own self gratification and ego. Towers of Babylon
WTF, the people responsible for that building, are many colors. All they care about is money not where your poor ass came from or the shade of your skin. They will let the petty pea brained racists kill themselves as they watch from the penthouse. You have a tiny view of the universe where you stand.
