Firm designs 222m high tower for Ugandan capital

Capita Symonds has unveiled plans for a new development in the Ugandan capital Kampala.

The company has designed the proposed ‘Kampala Tower’, a 222m high commercial building with public square which will be a new landmark for the city.

Comprising 60 storeys, it will be the tallest tower in Africa and will house over 100,000m2 of office and retail space for up to 12,500 people. A public plaza at the entrance will create a new centre for events against the back drop of the tower and surrounding hills.

The project is currently under review by the Ugandan government.
