LAGOS / The Stratosphere / 60 floors

Not often we see news of a skyscraper in Nigeria. From a post in SSC.

The will be Africa´s tallest highrise, more will follow! So watch out..."The Stratosphere" (hotel and residential tower) will be built on Banana Island, a new posh residential offshore development in Lagos (Nigeria). Abuja will also get a $500 million tower called "Abuja Millenium Tower".






For more infomation about this project if interested:

Nigeria's just starting to build tall, they've got a ways to go before they get to "innovative".
