The Pinnacle Towers complex is a mixed-use development on a 2.5 acres piece of land in Upper Hill, Nairobi, Kenya.
The project includes the construction of two adjacent towers. At a height of 659 feet and with a total of 46 floors, the shorter tower will house the 257-room five-star Upper Hill Hilton Hotel, the third Hilton franchise in the East African country’s capital and the 50th on the African continent.
The taller tower, on the other hand at a height of 1,050 feet with a total of 70 floors, will feature eleven floors of commercial office space, nine floors of upscale rental retail space, and 46 floors with 210 upscale 1, 2, and 3-bedroom, serviced residential apartments.
This tower upon completion will become the tallest tower in Kenya overtaking the 31 floors Britam Tower that stands at a height of 200.1 m (656 ft.) in Nairobi’s Upper Hill Region, and the 2nd tallest in the whole of Africa overtaking the 55 floors Leonardo Tower standing at a height of 234 m (768 ft.) in Sandton, Johannesburg, South Africa and slightly behind the 385-meter-high, 80 floors Iconic tower in the New Administrative Capital (NAC) east of Cairo, Egypt.
The Pinnacle Towers complex will enjoy amenities such as conference facilities, a gymnasium, luxury spa, an infinity pool, an observatory at 902 feet, and a helipad situated on the roof-top of the taller tower.
