Here’s a link to an article (in Portuguese) regarding plans to build the largest building in Angola. If all goes according to plans, it will be 70 stories tall (325 m) and cost US$800 MILLION. Apparently it will be in the shape of an “A” with a 400-room luxury hotel on one side and malls, restaurants, and luxury apartments on the other.

Even in this land of oil industry-propelled excesses, $800 million for a building seems a tad distasteful.

It will be called the Tower of Babel. Whoops! I mean Tower of Angola.
