Opening Soon: Africa’s Newest Tallest Building

Africa’s current tallest building is The Carlton Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa. It is 222.5 m high and offers superb rooftop views of the City of Gold and is a favorite with tourists.

But sometime this year (before July) that much-coveted continental title will move north of the city-center to the leafy and filthy-rich suburb of Sandton.

Already the financial hub of South Africa Sandton is set to become home to the tallest building in Africa and with that draw in both local and international visitors to snap away using the picturesque skyline as a photo background. The Leonardo will be a 55-storey mixed-use property development by the Legacy Group and Nedbank, standing shy of 250 meters.

The Kenyan Challenge

But Leonardo’s title might be short-lived. This as Kenya is already boasting of what they are terming “the tallest ultramodern project Africa has seen” – the Pinnacle Tower. The building is already under construction in the capital Nairobi and is projected to be completed in 2021, with an edifice of 70 floors and rising to 314 m.
