Rabat – Local authorities in Casablanca have reportedly denied that plans exist to build a 114-story skyscraper in Morocco’s economic capital.
Two weeks ago, the Saudi Bin Laden Group, the world’s largest construction firm headquartered in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, announced that it is moving forward with plans to build the tallest skyscraper in Europe and Africa in Casablanca, Morocco.
The tower was reported to be 514m tall, and the project is valued at over $1.5 Billion.
However, local authorities in Casablanca, denied the report, saying that there are no plans to build the skyscraper.
Hespress quoted head of the Urbanization and Development Agency of Casablanca Anfa (AUDA) Khadir Lamrini as saying that “neither his agency nor the administrative region of Greater Casablanca received any project to build Africa’s tallest tower in Casablanca.”
“There is no project to build a 540-meter tall tower in Casablanca. The tallest tower in Casablanca will be built by Othman Benjelloun, and it will be comprised of 42 stories, only,” Khadir Lamrini added.
