Africa’s cleanest city, Kigali, is seeing its skyline being transformed at the fastest pace ever by Asian developers building governmental towers. Despite concerns that too many are going up, there are excitements among the citizens about the future of the capital of Rwanda
Companies including The Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA), Gasabo Investment Company and Fair Construction Limited have flocked to build high-rises in Kigali as lifestyles change and the nation moves towards a sustainable economic raise. Several buildings taller than 20 meters are being planned or built, the most on record, according to the Government.
The level of building is unprecedented.
Overseas developers are responding to a shift away from the great Rwandese dream of a life centered on backyards and tall brick fence. They’re also reacting to ever-increasing demand for new, centrally located apartments from buyers seeking to escape their own faltering housing market and improve their quality of life.
About 30,000 apartments are in planning or construction across all of Kigali by Gasabo Investment Company, according to the official website of the enterprise.
Kigali is Irresistible.
The City’s master plan shows how the skylines will be implemented in the City. Apartments will have the greatest views, and the population will not resist to shift from the rural area to the capital.
