New Nairobi signature

A new Nairobi signature is coming up in upper hill, this will be the tallest building with 67 stores, The building will be the new home of the city’s Hilton Hotel.
The Sh11 billion twin towers building, whose construction has begun, is scheduled to be completed by 2020. Hilton Worldwide announced that it would be setting up its third shop under a franchise agreement with its owners.
When complete, Hass Towers will be one of the largest and most modern properties in Nairobi’s Upper Hill.  The Towers is set on a three-acre plot and will dwarf other buildings in Nairobi.
The 255 guest-room hotel will be located in the shorter of the twin towers while the taller arm will be an office block. The mixed use development consists of a business hub and a four level basement car parking facility with automated car parking solutions.
It will also house a four level retail and entertainment segment with a central atrium on which the 45 level five-star suite hotel will be built.
The Upper Hill hotel will be Hilton’s third in Kenya besides the pioneer one in Nairobi’s Central Business District that was opened in 1969 and the Hilton Garden Inn located two kilometers from the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.

Hilton’s decision to upgrade its presence in Kenya with a modern facility is seen as being part of the ongoing battle for control of Kenya’s growing hospitality industry. “Occupancy rates in Nairobi and Mombasa remain high and international companies such as Marriott, Sheraton, Ramada, Hilton Garden Inn, M√∂venpick Hotel and Four Points by Sheraton are planning new hotels in Kenya in the next five years,” PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) said in a Hotels Outlook report released last month.
