Millennium Tower Abuja, panoramic restaurant
The tower is 170 meters high is located in the capital of Nigeria, Abuja, the complex has a profound symbolic union between different cultures in the nation.
The Millennium Tower and Cultural Centre project is one of the many projects in the Central District of Nigeria's capital city of Abuja. At 170 metres (560 ft), it is the tallest artificial structure in Abuja. The tower was designed by Manfredi Nicoletti and is part of the Nigeria National Complex which also includes the Nigerian Cultural Centre, an eight storey, low rise, pyramid shaped Cultural Centre. Construction for the tower started in 2006 and was completed in 2015, whilst the cultural centre is still under construction.
The site is severed by a main road so the two structures will be linked via an underground arcade. The tower consists of three cylindrical concrete pillar-like structures varying in height and linked together near the towers first peak using a disc shaped section which will house in its two floors, an observation deck and a restaurant where visitors will be able to enjoy spectacular views of the city below while they eat. Around the pillars of the tower three transparent stainless steel wings wrap delicately but protectively around the base of the tower and gradually open outwards in a fan like fashion as they extend up the height of the tower.
