KARACHI: One more project has been approved for Karachi’s ever-changing skyline – the 42-floor Hoshang Tower.

The Sindh High Density Development Board approved the building during a meeting at Governor House on Thursday. The board’s chairperson, Governor Dr Ishratul Ebad Khan and co-chairperson, chief minister Qaim Ali Shah, headed the meeting.

At the meeting, the board’s members discussed parking facilities in the building and ways in which it should be built to avoid traffic congestion. The tower, which costs an estimated Rs2 billion, will be built on Hoshang Road. It will be 2.24 million square-feet wide and around 130 meters tall. The building will have three basements and nine parking floors. A private company will build the structure.
