There are a lot of US franchises doing business in Pakistan. Its a large consumer market (162m people), so I wouldn't be surprised to see American firms expanding business to Pakistan.

Hehe. It got me interested in seeing what other locations they had, but right now they only have Dubai and Seoul listed. New operation perhaps?

Nope. MMA is not against development, infact MMA is developing NWFP, where they were elected by the people. NWFP has never been better. Lots of new roads, lush green parks, lots of foreign investment, and much more. Also, MMA only holds power in NWFP, which means, they cannot interfere in Punjab's politics, until and unless they are elected to a position where they represent the Punjab province.

Also, discussing politics here is irrelevant, because this is not a political thread, its all about cities, and cityscapes, so lets end it right here.

Islam stands for peace and progress.

maybe about 8-10 years, depends how quickly the area gets populated cos right now bahria town is empty, 1000 safari villas are to be given out this year, that should boost the population and encourage more people to move there,

8 - 10 years is a pretty long time. But I guess we'd see a lot more highrises and a proper downtown in Lahore by then, Insh'Allah.

Are all the towers on Independence Drive approved, or just visionary/proposed? Are the towers offices, residential, or mixed?

Independence Dr is being built by 'Bahria Group', they already bought the land, and they can build whatever they want on it now.. They would surely need approval from the city gov for highrises, which I'm sure they got before releasing the plans and renders to the public.
