United Bank Tower

Nice tower! Does anyone have any updates as to when will project begin? It seems like it takes forever for any projects to take off! Look at KPT tower Karachi - Project never took off and investors bailed out! Now KPT is looking for new investor(s).

Thanks Pakboy for the update. Since I haven't seen any updates on KPT tower, I was getting a little apprehensive!

I read about so many upcoming projects/highrises all over Pakistan, but when I ask my friends living in Pakistan, they seem to know a little about these projects like DHI tower in ISB, creek city etc.

looks interesting but is a little stocky looking. Agree with the rest of the people who said it should be taller. Then it would have better proportions.
