The Pinnacle - Africa's Tallest Skyscraper
Published at : 07 Dec 2020
Ugandan business tycoon James Mugoya and a member of the UAE royal family have laid claim to prime plots on which the Hilton Upper Hill tower is being built, in a suit that could stall the Sh20 billion project.
The two have obtained court orders stopping the ongoing construction on claims that the developers of the skyscraper have encroached on their land.
The Pinnacle Tower, which is set to host the 45-floor Hilton Upper Hill hotel and a separate 70-storey apartments and office block, is tipped to be the tallest building in Africa on completion.
The project was launched by President Uhuru Kenyatta last year, but is now beset by a web of intricate land fraud claims.
