Kampala Tower Uganda

Capita Symonds has unveiled plans for a new development in the Ugandan capital Kampala.

The company has designed the proposed ‘Kampala Tower’, a 222m high commercial building with public square which will be a new landmark for the city.

Comprising 60 storeys, it will be the tallest tower in Africa and will house over 100,000 sq m of office and retail space for up to 12,500 people. A public plaza at the entrance will create a new centre for events against the backdrop of the tower and surrounding hills.
