The soon-to-be tallest building in Morocco and the entirety of Africa has begun construction, slated to be around 820 feet (250 meters) tall. The skyscraper, “The Bank of Africa,” will include 55 floors that contain a luxury hotel with high-end offices, apartments, and even a viewing terrace.

BESIX and Travaux Generaux de Construction de Casablanca (TGCC), two construction firms from Belgian, will take on the project. The sponsors behind the project, The Moroccan BMCE Bank of Africa, are estimated to spend 3 billion MAD (approximately $314,719,500 USD.) BESIX’s team have also gone out of the way to develop several technological innovations in an attempt to create a state-of-the-art structure.

Designed by Spanish designer Rafael de la-Hoz and Moroccan firm CHB Hakim Benjelloun, construction work is slated to begin in Rabat November 1 and finish by the end of May 2022.
