It is awsome, and I think it will fit very well in the green Lahore

Question: What does PC stands for?

Cymen,

I guess it does, but its because of the green colour that makes them both look identical. The glass on the WTC6 gives the highrise a rough look, but the PC Tower has a smooth feel to it.

The original glass colour for the PC Tower was Blue, but preservation groups claimed that the highrise would spoil the beauty in the area, so to blend the building in, and give it a much better look, they had to go with green.

Here is how the original was supposed to look;

Lahore has a "downtown" (if you want to call it that). It's Central Business District is Mall Road and the buildings there aren't very tall.

But seems like these new towers are popping up all over the place...mainly in Liberty Market!

lahores downtown is main boulvard in gulberg, not mnay high risers but some u/c. jail road next to main boulvard is also developing fast.

mall road just had goverment buildings, 2 5 star hotels and some shops and very little development happening there.
