Chinese company to build Africa’s tallest tower in Morocco

Morocco

Africa’s tallest tower is set to be built in Morocco in a collaboration between state owned giant China Railway Construction Corporation (CRCC) and Morocco’s leading construction company Travaux Generaux de Construction de Casablanca.

The US$380 million project will host offices, a hotel and apartments, and is being designed to incorporate sustainable features.




It will be the focal point of a large-scale development in Rabat’s Bouregreg valley, part of the 2014-2018 Integrated Development Programme dubbed “Rabat, City of Light, Moroccan Cultural Capital”, masterplanned by Atkins.

CRCC will take responsibility for 60% of the project, which is budgeted at $380 million, with a designated total floor area of 86,000 square meters while their Moroccan partners, The General Construction Company of Casablanca (TGCC), handle the other 40%.

Earlier this year, two Chinese companies signed a joint-venture to construct the world’s tallest twin towers in Cambodia’s capital of Phnom Penh. Once complete, the towers will include 133 floors and reach 560 meters in height, 108 meters taller than the current record-holder, Kuala Lumpur’s Petronas Towers.

  1. You see, Africans are in the business of awarding contracts to foreigners which is so wrong! Why would you give out 60% of the contract to the Chinese? Our roads, hospitals, schools, energy sectors, food production, and literally everything is done by a foreign entity. After over 50 years of freedom from the colonizers you still rely on them for almost everything! Why can’t we just be self-reliant? We allow them, they come and take the money away. Africa is literally feeding the whole world and her people remained poor and hungry. There is something wrong with the African’s mind! This is reminiscent to the fact that our minds are still in captivity; because throughout the ages the battle has always been the battle of the mind. Africa is a continent that is ravaged by foreign entities over the ages. Today you may not see the African being drugged and beaten as they were taking away and enslaved by their colonial masters. But what you’ll see it that the foreigner has hijacked our minds (the minds of our leaders) and meretriciously taking and cheating the African. The deals these foreign entities among others sign with Africans are so strategic to their better advantage. They come in with all kinds of offers and deals to deceptively lure the African and take their resources away. This is a new form (modern) of colonialism that the Chinese and other foreign lands to Africa are practicing. And our leaders here in Africa are so dead-minded, and have allowed their people to be offered in sacrifice to satisfy their selfish gain and glory. Their greed is never satisfied. Africans today are so angry with these behaviors of their leaders who wouldn’t stop but continue to engage in bribery and corrupt activities.
