KARACHI | Bahria Icon Tower | 268m | 62 fl | 191m | 41 fl | U/C

Quote:
Bahria Town Icon
It offers not only an unprecedented scale but also revolutionary design, challenging everything you’ve come to expect from a building. The iconic building symbolizes modernity and engineering prowess. The uniquely designed Bahria Town Icon promises to become the most visible landmark on Karachi’s rapidly developing skyline. Standing tall as a mixed use high rise development on a prime location in Karachi; it will change the way we build, live, shop and do business.

A historical landmark in the making, Bahria Town Icon will stand tall as a vanguard of futuristic hi-rise developments in the country. Fusing visionary aesthetics with functionality, it will be an icon indeed. Offering beautiful panoramic views, the iconic structure with its revolutionary design symbolizes modernity and boasts of exclusive engineering prowess.

With an exterior façade clad in titanium finish panels and glass, the design has been carefully evolved into the region’s most technologically advanced structure. It will be an intelligent building that hopes to generate at least some component of its energy through micro wind turbines and its water heating requirements through solar panels.

In addition to its enviable setting, the Icon’s location ensures it is accessible and visible from all key centers of the city. With over a million square feet of covered area symbolizing the apogee of lifestyle distinction, the Icon development offers enough scope to create a landmark of unique proportions and visual excitement.

Project Attraction: Location and mixed used building (commercial, residential)
Project Type: High rise mixed use building
Project Status: Under Construction

We could be looking at a potential supertall! 62 floors + a spire. It is going to be close!

Pleasant surprise this building is. I don't think of Karachi very often here on SSC. Hope it doesn't stick out like a sore thumb!
