Awesome pictures

Although Sea Point isn't a city. It's just a suburb in Cape Town

Skyscrapercity has some amazing pics of african cities, I would also check that out.

And besides the SA cities, Luanda in Angola has shocked me the most. The tranformation from 2005 to 2015 is jaw-dropping! And you can tell that the quality of the buildings/skyscrapers are world-class. The upmarket residential suburban area [Luanda Sul] is also very attractive too.

Upper Hill and the Westlands in Nairobi seems to have a lot of construction, however, downtown Nairobi doesn't seem to have much new construction for some reason.

Abuja is nice too but it seems to take forever for most major projects to be completed.

Africa also has those sprawling suburbs that disappear into the horizon like

Imara Daima estate in Nairobi




Maitland suburb in Capetown





A Moroccan Suburb with the medieval city at the fore ground (hence seemingly desolate)


Kariakoo Dar-es-Salaam- Tanzania (mixed Use suburb hence slightly taller buildings)
