Watamu beach, in Malindi will host the tallest skyscraper in Africa once Palm Exotjca, 61-storey building, is completed.

The building’s developers are investors from New York, South Africa and Italian billionaire Franco Rosco.

Towering at a height of 370 metres, the tower will add to the coastal town’s clout as a luxury tourism hub. Designed by Italian architect Lorenzo Pagnini, the Palm Exotjca will be a mixed use development.

The architectural design borrows from simple traditionally crafted art pieces of Kenya’s rich culture from the coast.
