Well, Every Highrise or Tall Building Requires a Core.Or Core Is Important Part of Construction of Skyscrapers and Tall Buildings.Core is The Backbone of Tower which provides strength to Tower. As You Asked, Core Base Highrise is more strong than simple highrise.The Building More than 15fl Should have strong core.

This is a side building. The main tower hasn't started yet.

P.S. the architect of this building is the same guy who designed the ugly MCB building. Allah reham karay.

Well, I'm hoping it turns out nice. Normally I would be very excited to see a 60+ story building in Karachi but I'm nervous because the architect doesn't have any great record of designing buildings of this size.

Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder but in my opinion the MCB building is an eyesore, both in design and quality of fit and finish. Compare that to a building like the Empire State which was built 80+ years ago but is still a marvel of good design and quality.

I don't like to be negative but my aspirations are to see buildings and infrastructure of international quality in Pakistan. Like the Centaurus in ISB or the LHR-ISB motorway which I would rate as high-quality. We also have flyovers that fall one month after opening and underpasses that flood every year. I'll praise it if it's good otherwise I'll be skeptical.

Nowadays there are lots of local builders building 20 story buildings in Karachi and mostly they don't excite me nor turn me off because those projects don't really matter too much. But this is a 60 story building in a very prominent location. If it turns out ugly then we'll have to live with it for the rest of our lives.

So it's a very important project but there's very little information available on it apart from a single render. In most countries people get to debate projects like this and scrutinize them. But here Malik Riaz has partnered with Zardari and bypassed any planning laws that might exist, so it creates some doubt in my mind.

Anyways, we'll only find out what we're getting once it's up. Keeping my fingers crossed and tazbi beads turning. To cover all bases maybe I'll also get a buddha statue and make some offerings to it.

Actually not sure why an 8 storey building would need a core?
