Shivo Towers Luxury Apartments - A New Landmark for Paje, Zanzibar

What you need to know:

  • The building will have 4 penthouses, each asking over $2 million and offering private infinity pools, as well as entry-level studio suites starting at $120,000.

The vibrant Paje neighbourhood in Zanzibar is about to be transformed once again, with the arrival of the Shivo Towers, a unique and innovative new development designed by the renowned Italian architectural firm Much More, an Italian Architectural firm, based in Dubai, London & Milan, led by their director Christian Bonu.

“The development embodies Italian contemporary design while taking inspiration from the natural world and the surrounding landscape of Zanzibar,” says the Zanzibar property developer Richard Ashby, founder & CEO of Shivo Tanzania.

The tower, which is currently under design was originally meant to be 100 metres tall, but will settle for two towers 49 metres tall featuring soaring 8-metre-high apartment level ceilings, giving every owner the feeling of living in their own vast airy penthouse.

“TCAA nearly halved the height of the tower apparently owing to the proximity to the proposed Paje airport and being directly in its proposed flight path, albeit 3.4 miles due north east,” he says.

This is the latest project from Shivo SMC Private Limited, now branching out from their record-breaking start on the island in 2023 in the sale of over 34 villas without a single completed unit or show villa on the ground, totalling over $8m dollars of off plan luxury villa sales in Paje and Nungwi. 

The Shivo Towers are designed to be even more unique and luxurious than the previous projects, with total design, construction and procurement control now fully in the hands of the Shivo Group, setting the stage for Zanzibar’s first world class portered luxury Zanzibar apartment building, with room service from a high-end restaurant on the ground floor, huge communal pool, spa, gym, saunas, coworking space, and vast manicured tropical gardens. The total value of the Zanzibar apartments for sale is projected at over $46m with 105 available.

The tower's elevated position and stunning views have inspired the building's iconic design, which embraces the beauty of the turquoise reef, ocean and palm forests, skies and earth. 

The Light is integral to the design principles as both a practical and metaphorical inspiration, providing transparency to the building but at the same time privacy, and peace. 

The tower is designed to be illuminated by the soft natural light that evolves from sunrise to sunset to give an ethereal atmosphere.

The Shivo Towers will have something for everyone, with endless variations of unit styles for any budget. The building will have 4 penthouses, each asking over $2 million and offering private infinity pools, as well as entry-level studio suites starting at $120,000.

Mr Richard Ashby states that the project to him represents…“The opportunity to deliver the primary flagship standard of new luxury build quality in Tanzania, embodying both the combination of classic luxury new build apartment developments that I grew up selling in Westminster in central London, now combined with vast vaulted open mezzanine floors creating the luxurious penthouse feel in all residents apartments from floors 4-9.”

This exclusive first of its kind development is sure to be a landmark for Paje in Zanzibar, a testament to the developers' commitment to innovation and community.

With its unique design and luxurious amenities, the Shivo Towers are sure to be a popular choice for residents and investors alike.
