the tower looks nice but its being made were a haunted house use to be, the house was abandoned for the last 10 years or so because of some creepy stuff which use to happen there, some people have also died who tried to enter the abandoned house. they say the ghost killed it. it was a famous landmark in lahore but now they are demoliting it.

^I think it'll be more like 200 (That is how high you can go without paying any extra height charges).

This idea is employed in many buildings I was looking at design of a new building at Karachi they had added parking floor somewhere around 7th & 8th floor, though it does add to the cost of the building.

True, even Trump tower which is being constructed in Chicago has parking floors starting from 3rd to 12th floor.

Na.. that cant happen because the higher you go, the more expensive construction gets and for each and every sq.ft of floor area you build above 200ft you have to pay LDA extra height charges for it.

Building looks good but the thing I dont understand is Pakistani Architects infatuation with "Gold" colored glass and hideous looking "spires" (if they can even be called that! This is supposed to be a "corporate tower", dont these idiots know that nothing says "corporate" better than blue cladding?

The most hideous is that Crown Tower on Sharea Faisal, its gold and complete with a huge crown.

BTW I havent seen this project before so I'm not sure about it, if anyone else can come up with the previous thread it can be merged.

I agree that the spire is gay. The renders don't always look like the actual building and I wouldn't be surprised if the yellow-tinted windows took a hike. If you think the colouring of this building is bad, you should take a look at the buildings in India.. some of them have several colours blended together.
