Inspecting the towers on Kampala Road recently, Ssebaana said, â€œKampala needs modern and refurbished buildings to match the city standards.â€
He appealed to property owners to renovate their buildings ahead of the Commonwealth Conference in 2007.
Hirji said renovation of the towers would cost $12m (sh21b).
He said the tower would be re-named Charm Towers, after his wife, who died last year.
â€œI want this tower to be the most beautiful building in the city because I have re-named it after my late wife who was very beautiful,â€ Hirji said.
