Excerpt from Wikipedia
Britam Tower is a commercial building in Nairobi owned by British-American Investments Company (Britam). The skyscraper has a maximum height of 195 metres (640 ft), above ground, with 32 usable floors. The building features a unique prismic shape, that starts as an equal four sided square footprint and ends with a two sided roof with a 60 metres (197 ft) mast, containing three helical wind turbines. It currently ranks as the tallest building in Kenya.
The tower is located along Hospital Road, in the Upper Hill neighborhood of Nairobi, Kenya's capital and largest city. The geographical coordinates of Britam Tower are 01°18'00.0"S, 36°48'47.0"E (Latitude:-1.300000; Longitude:36.813056).
The building is the international headquarters of Britam. It also serves as the regional headquarters of the business conglomerate in East and Central Africa. The building has a total of 350,000 square feet (32,516 m2) of office space to let for commercial purposes. To cater to its many tenants, the building has an attached 12 Storey Car Park that can accommodate up to 1,000 vehicles.
In July 2018, nearly one year after the building was completed, Britam, the skyscraper's owner-developer, began letting the building to prospective tenants. The target clientele are financial institutions, diplomatic missions, private companies and multinational corporations.
