A skyscraper project has recently come to light that has been around the world a few times, until it found its location in Africa, specifically in the archipelago of Zanzibar, Tanzania. It is the Zanzibar Domino Commercial Tower, which is thought to be the second tallest tower on the African continent, after Egypt’s Iconic Tower, currently under construction in the country’s New Administrative Capital. Indeed, the Domino Tower was initially developed for a site in Saudi Arabia and then in Vietnam. But, as Jean-Paul Cassia, founder of xCassia, the architectural firm responsible for the design, explains, “both locations proved inconclusive however, due to height, budget, marine and infrastructure constraints“. Now, after xCassia signed a contract with the Tanzanian AICL Group and Edinburgh Crowland Management Ltd. on 24th August, the future of the Zanzibar Domino Commercial Tower looks bright.
