Brace for Africa’s tallest tower, Egypt’s 80- floor Iconic Tower

Egypt’s Housing Minister Asem al-Gazzar declared that construction work has launched on the Iconic Tower’s metal structure, located in the New Administrative Capital’s central business area, during his inspection tour there on Saturday.

“The 11th level is currently under construction,” Gazzar said.

Set to be Africa’s tallest tower after completion, the 80-level tower is founded on an area of roughly 240,000 square meters and a height of 385 meters, according to freshly issued statements from the Housing Minister.

Johannesburg’s Carlton Center, which is 223 meters, has been the tallest building in Africa since 1973 according to The National.

The tower’s construction work kicked-off in 2018, and the foundations of the remarkable skyscraper were laid within 80 hours of nonstop work.
