Congo unveils $281m Mpila twin tours of capital Brazzaville

Congo’s President Sassou Nguesso inaugurated Monday October 23 the China-built Mpila Twin Towers worth $281 million in the capital Brazzaville.
“I inaugurated on Monday, October 23, 2023, the twin towers of Mpila in Brazzaville. These towers, which add a touch of modernity to our capital city, are also a source of pride for its inhabitants. They reflect our unwavering determination to modernize our country”, the African leader said on X.
Funded jointly by the Congolese government and the Chinese Export and Import Bank Exim, the twin tours are built by Chinese construction company BCEG.
The tours 135.8 meters high each will be managed by the South African Legacy Group. The holding manages South Africa’s highest skyscraper building that houses the luxurious Leonardo Hotel.
One of the tours features a 5-star hotel of 349 rooms including 8 presidential suites, 47 ministerial suites, and 114 standard rooms as well as 217 apartments.
The other tour boats business offices and spaces for visiting investors who wish to open shops in the oil-rich African country and who want to ink deals.
The tours are located on the bank of Congo River, near the port of Yoro. The construction of buildings was launched in March 2016. Authorities will host the forthcoming 2nd Congo Basin Summit slated for October 26-28 in one of the tours.
