GREAT! Thanks KB!

Note: This thread will be updated weekly with construction pics, starting from the oldest U/C pics to the latest ones that we have. On top of Videos, Renders, location maps etc etc

However, for projects that we ALREADY have threads on in the "Supertalls", "Skyscrapers" and "Highrises" sections, ONLY the Latest pics will be shown, along with Videos, Renders, location maps etc etc

First project to be concentrated on will be the Platinum Square (World Trade Center)

First of all, starting with a short overview of Islamabad's developing skyline on Jinnah Avenue/Blue Area, done by me. Mind you, not all projects are located in this area, but plenty are.

EDIT: The U/C 200m+ Centaurus Complex is missing from this pic, as it will be even further south of the U/C Stock Exchage & Telecom Towers. And the Jinnah-Faisal Avenue Interchange isn't labeled aswell, which begins where the "tower" part of Telecom Tower is:

KB, please add this to the 1st post:

- Website for the Platinum Square, WTC: http://www.wtcisb.com/

- Also mention the U/C 20 Storeys tall State Life Tower, as we have info and U/C pics of it, even though its render hasn't been released yet. In the space for the render you can just type "render not released".

And like the other 2 threads I have updated the note too and ofcourse we aren't including buildings below 15 stories in these threads. Apart from projects which include 5* Hotels.

And for the state life tower, wait till we have a nice render. There's lots of other things to cover in the mean time.

This is not the Islamabad Airport. This is the existing Hyderabad International Airport in Hyderabad, India.
