Rising From Ashes To Skies
After a brush with economic death, Egypt is poised to redefine Africa’s skyline in unprecedented ways.
Against all odds of a failing state like unstable currency, incessant riots and post-riot dilapidated infrastructure, Egypt is shaking itself from the drossy multi-pronged assault of an apocalyptic economy.
Whereas it is still under much skepticism, how and who built the world’s largest mysterious pyramids in Egypt, it is clear who is going to build Africa’s tallest building in Egypt.
After intense political and financial negotiations, China out-competed Dubai to orchestrate the actualization of Africa’s tallest building.
The Chinese’s fierce devouring of engineering opportunities on the African continent shouldn’t be underestimated.
The Chinese state-owned China State Construction Engineering Corporation (CSCEC) is going to unleash the indomitability of engineering principles by erecting a 345m high, 70 storied skyscraper along the river Nile’s shores. The multi-purpose tower will be named the Nile Tower.
At this height, The Nile Tower will be taller than the current tallest building called The Charlton Center in South Africa, which is 223m tall.
Completion of the project will mean that Egypt would become the sole home to both ancient and modern engineering enigmas in Africa. Ancient, with reference to the Pyramid of Khufu at Giza and modern, with reference to this Nile Tower.
