pakistan has a few hundred best projects.

to name a few are:

development of gwadar and turning it into a metropolis, tax-free city. using dubai as a model.

development of islamabad and once again turning it into a metropolish. tons of high risers are planned there.

a new city being built on the outskirts of lahore on 50,000 acres by bahria town.

and ofcourse all bahria towns, which are increasing there size rapidly, soon they would turn bigger then citys and all of bahrias mega projects.

and not to forget port tower complex, the tallest tower in the world.

also on the cards is the development of muzzafarabad after the earth quake whiped the whole city out and is planned to be developed with good infranstruchure and keeping it tourist friendly.

these are just some, theres many more
