    A Chinese firm has signed a deal with local companies to build Africa's tallest skyscraper in the Moroccan capital, Rabat.

    The deal was struck in Casablanca by China Railway Construction Corporation (CRCC) and Morocco's BMCE Bank of Africa and Travaux Generaux de Construction de Casablanca, Morocco's leading construction company, the le360.ma news site reported.

    The 55-story tower will be 250 meters tall and use ecological and sustainable design concepts.

    It will house offices, hotels and luxury apartments, according to the report.

    The tower will be the highlight of a large-scale project to develop the Bouregreg Valley in Rabat, a key component of the 2014-2018 Integrated Development Program dubbed "Rabat, City of Light, Moroccan Cultural Capital."

    The new project also involves the construction of several innovative facilities, including the Grand Theater of Rabat, the Arts and Culture House, the National Archives of the Kingdom of Morocco and the Archaeological Museum.
