Noble Center towers Port Moresby skyline

With the construction and property development sectors in Port Moresby taking off in a hype of activity, the preferred direction for construction within the heart of the Port Moresby Central Business District has always been up.
The city’s CBD will now see a new building set to dominate the skyline overlooking the famous Fairfax Harbour.
The building is the Noble Center, totally developed by China Railway Construction Engineering Group (PNG) Real Estate Co. Ltd (short for CRCEGRE) .
China Railway is no stranger to building many large and modern buildings in big cities in China as well as in Tanzania, Africa.
Still under construction the Noble Center currently stands 20 floors, already peaking over the CBD precinct, and once fully completed will stand at 23 floors above ground, with two basement levels.
Standing at almost 100 meters, it will be the tallest building in the country, completing a two and a half year construction period that started in December 2016 and ends in the second half of 2019.
The tower’s two basement levels (and Level 1 to Level 7) will cater for car parks; while the ground floor, level 8, and 22 are for commercial cliental. Levels 9 to 21 are office floors.
The building is connected with three major city roads of Stanley Esplanade, Champion Parade, and Musgrave Street.
The building is the first architectural work to incorporate vertical landscaping concept, as the building aims at creating an unprecedented office environment in PNG.
The building will have a Roof Gym, Sky cafeteria, Ground retail to vary the business environment, incorporating a gardenia working atmosphere.
For each office floor the total usable area is about 1100 square metres.
China Railway is the owner of the building in what is a pure commercial office building investment.
Growing interest has already been shown for the building.
Also in addition to the hype and interest around the tallest structure in town and the appreciation of architectural art, CRCEGRE is running what it calls the Noble Center photo competition.
It will see three categories of prizes from smart phones and smart watches to be given away to seven lucky winners under the theme of architectural photography.
