I just realized that this thread is about Karachi's tower. I guess my criticism got me a bit distracted, so sorry for the OT.

(Insert smug d*uche)
"Oh, Pakistan has so many poor people and yet they want to build an 800 meter tower to show off. They should,like, really get their prioties in order!" (sips starbucks)


But really, this construction would be cool to see happen.

It's just a perception. Only 5% areas (Near afghan border) of Pakistan are heavily talibanized. The rest in pretty much similar to India

No it is not.
Balochistan, NWFP, Gilgit Balistan and POK are more than 50% in are of Pakistan. ANyways this is a infrastructure thread. I would be more than happy if this ever starts to get build.

Yes but Karachi doesn't have the global symbol for capitalism (and somewhat Westernism) that a WTB would be. I could see this tower being a big target if it was ever built. And it's not like terrorist walk around with name tags or huge signs saying they are terrorists so you can't really say they won't be allowed in the city. I mean if it get's built I hope nothing ever happens to it but I could see a lot of radical Pakistanis getting upset that it gets built.

It is a purpose built master-planned city. The magnitude of the construction embraces every aspect of modern day living that is embellished by the unique environment of the Bundal and Buddu Islands.


Central to the master plan is the preservation of the natural mangrove habitat, home to wild birds and flora, which the residents will get to enjoy. The unique flora and fauna of the island will amalgamate with the architecture and modern infrastructure spread over thousands of acres of meticulously planned living community.

The global attractions of the project are:

World’s Tallest Tower
World’s Largest Shopping Mall
Sports City
Education and Medical City
International City
Media City
A 3.5km long, six lane modern bridge built over the sea will connect Bahria Town Islands City to DHA Karachi.




Proposed Plan of Island City.






Major Projects in this Island

World's tallest building **

World's Biggest mall

3.5 km long Cable Stay bridge.

Media, Education, Medical and Sports City in this island.

Just nearest to the location of tower Emaar's big project is u/c (Crescent Bay) in DHA phase 8. This project will create construction boom in DHA Area and will also change Karachi.

a bit weird that they do not even have a concept tower inside the renders for the tallest tower. this tower doesn't seem likely anyways and more like a vision, but we will see what they will show us in the future.

A 800m tower for Karachi now that's impressive. I really thought your country was kinda poor and that's why your people kept coming, now I see you can even rise a megatall. I hope this building means that Pakistan is not a third world country anymore and its people from all over Europe can go back to their amazing homeland. That would be great.
