Its 15 storey as mentioned. But it may be a portion other than other floors for specific office or administration, as it is a common feature in many buildings. Moreover pic shows more than 20 floors. I still remember when Pervaz Elahi talked about this 6 months back it was mentioned 20- story in papers. Any how let it be realised because Pervez's record of forgetting things after Inaugration is very obvious. SZC EXPO and Bab-e-Pakistanand many other have been inaugrated long a go but what happened then?

Elahi inaugurating software park today

By Noshad Ali



LAHORE: Chief Minister Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi is likely to inaugurate Pakistan’s first software technology park (STP) on Ferozpur Road today (Monday). The Rs 1.5 billion project by the provincial government will be completed in 12 months and is expected to create 10,000 jobs and generate economic activity of Rs 9 billion per year.

The 15-storeyed park is being constructed in front of Children Hospital on 300,000 square feet of land.

A Punjab Information Technology Board (PITB) official said the STP would offer a number of facilities including VSAT, LAN/WAN, video conferencing, a research and development laboratory, an IT incubation centre, a training institute, an IT university, a global database centre, banking, a health club and a modern security system. Consultants from Singapore will manage the project.

The official said the STP would serve companies from the IT and telecommunications sectors, especially cell centres, software application maintenance outsourcing companies, business outsourcing companies, Internet service providers, disaster recovery companies and telemedicine companies. “The province must have a proper IT park to attract foreign investment,” he said. “The park management will set up a one-window service to facilitate foreign investors.”

A Punjab IT Department official said the government had decided to lease out ready-to-use offices to IT and telecom companies at low rates to help them compete in the international market. Designers of the project have suggested reserving four of the park’s floors for small and medium companies, which were the backbone of Pakistan’s IT industry, he added.

PITB Chairman Rizwan Amin Sheikh refused to comment, but said all details would be announced on Monday.

phrase 2 allready planned
-------------------------------
IT ‘city’ on the cards

LAHORE: The Punjab government had earmarked 50-acres of land in Harbanspura for Phase II of the Software Technology Park (STP), sources told Daily Times on Sunday. The project would be an Information Technology (IT) city, they said, which would have IT towers, a hotel, apartment buildings, health clubs, hospitals and a school. They said the details of the project, such as its design, cost and timetable had not been finalised so far, but the Punjab government aims to feature state-of-the-art infrastructure in the IT city to attract foreign investment, boost Pakistan’s IT industry and create a large number of new jobs. staff report

STP to create 10,000 jobs, says Pervaiz



By our correspondent

At the ground-breaking ceremony of the STP2, he said the park would cost Rs 1.5 billion. He added that the latest facilities of international standards would be provided at the STP — the first of its kind in Pakistan.

He said the services of renowned construction experts of Singapore had been acquired to build this 15-storeyed building on Ferozepur Road. He said it would play a pivotal role in promoting IT in the country.

He said the project reflected the vision of President Pervez Musharraf to eradicate unemployment from the country. He said the STP would attract local and foreign investors in IT and Telecom sectors.

Elahi announces new Software Technology Park

LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi on Monday addressed the foundation-stone laying ceremony of a modern Software Technology Park (STP), the first of its kind in Pakistan, to be constructed in Lahore at a cost of Rs 1.5 billion.

He said the STP would offer technology and facilities of an international standard, adding that renowned construction experts from Singapore would work on the 15-storey building built on Ferozpur Road.

Elahi said the project would generate Rs 9 billion annually, provide employment to over 10,000 people, play a pivotal role in developing Pakistan’s IT sector and attract local and foreign investors, for whom the Punjab government would provide low-rent offices.

He said the project was part of President General Pervez Musharraf’s vision to eradicate unemployment. The minister also said the Punjab government would support and provide facilities to small and medium scale industries, saying they were the backbone of a country’s economy. He praised the Punjab Information Technology Board for promoting the IT sector in Punjab. staff report

For progress report, have a look at this: http://www.pitb.gov.pk/downloads/MPR-January,2007.pdf

The main tower is a 17-storey building (all above ground) while there's another adjacent 6-storey car park.

I don't think construction has even started yet. According to its website link to pending issues, march 27 is the date for tenders approval.

Lets hope better late than never!
