Lusaka City Zambia By Drone Cairo Road & Heroes Stadium
Drone footage from my recent trip to Lusaka City Zambia in July 2019.
National Heroes Stadium
Dedicated and refers to the 1993 Zambia Football team Lusaka City Zambia who lost their lives in a sad plane crash in April 1993. The plane was carrying most of the Zambian national football team to a FIFA World Cup Qualifier against Senegal in Dakar. All 25 passengers and five crew members were killed. This spectacular stadium is in the Chibombo District on outskirts of east Lusaka. It is mostly used for football including the Zambia National Football Team. The stadium holds 60,000 spectators. Lusaka National Heroes Stadium opened in 2014 and was funded and built by Shanghai Construction Company. It took 3 years to build and cost an estimated US$94 million.
Heart of retail, business and services in the center of Lusaka. It was part of a proposed road from Cape Town to Cairo during the late 1800s. It is now part of the Great North Road which is a major road of Zambia.
Currently the tallest building in Lusaka City Zambia and is an iconic landmark buildings on the end of Cairo Road. Completed in 1974, it is 90m high and has 23 floors. This concrete design is a brutalist style building has a concrete structure that is amazingly supported on one large column, at the base. It also has an open balcony towards the top.
The original building was a concrete brutalist 20-storey building constructed during Zambia’s golden decade of the 1970s when the copper industry was booming. By the late 1990s, a fire in the building left it uninhabitable. The building was left empty for 15 years. On the 27th May 2011, a groundbreaking ceremony was held at the Society House site in celebration of a fully restored $100m redevelopment of Society House. The buildings is now one of the most spectacular buildings in Lusaka. The architects retained the original sense of form while complimenting new appropriate geometries and materials expressing the form. Hilton Garden Inn currently occupies the building.
Boasts the biggest Mall in Zambia with over 70 stores. It is designed and constructed from mostly steel frame and cladding.
