not 100%, but it will be in sector c or in lake city.


ring road will also pass bahria town, that would also have many towers on it.

this area should be lahores downtown in the next 5 years.

Sounds interesting. I think the LDA should consider having an exit for 'Independence Dr' on the Ring Road.

It will be on the main boulevard of sector C which is much longer than 4Km but only a 4 Km section will be highrise specific that has been named Independence Drive.

4-km for highrises is pretty good. That could give Lahore the much awaited 'Downtown' area!

Does Pakistan have enough investment to fill up the highrises?
And the picture never seems to be accurate. I mean, I been to Pak and there is never that much greenery. Still looks nice.

Pakistanis till now have preferred to stay in the villas and houses.

I see a move towards apartments.

Not sure whteher it is actually better than what is happening now.

but you have to match the other cities with skyscrappers i guess.

with the real estate boom house prices have also boomed, the poor are being forced to move into flats/apartments, so expect a whole lot of towers.
