Construction companies from China and Morocco will set up a joint venture to build Africa's tallest skyscraper in Morocco's capital Rabat, local media reported on Saturday.

The joint venture will be set up by China Railway Construction Corp and Morocco's leading construction company Travaux Generaux de Construction de Casablanca, which won the bid for the project.

Moroccan news site Alyaoum24.com reported that the 250-meter skyscraper will cost $375 million.

The 45-story tower, which will adopt ecological and sustainable design concepts, will include offices, hotels and luxury apartments, the news site said.

The tower will be the highlight of a large project to develop the capital's Bouregreg valley, a key component of the 2014-18 Integrated Development Program dubbed "Rabat, City of Light, Moroccan Cultural Capital."

The project also involves building several innovative facilities, including the Grand Theater of Rabat, the Arts and Culture House, the National Archives of the Kingdom of Morocco and a business center.
