certainly looks really nice...enhances the outlook of karachi's shore line which is also getting a lot of nice tall buildings owing to the construction boom taking place in the country due to the economic marvels

Wow I thought that fountain hills arizona was the highest fountain. This one beats it by alot. The arizona one is 560 feet that it can do!!! Isn't there another one in Seoul almost this high??? That was temporary I think for the world cup. Jedda Saudi Arabia has one also prety high, I don't know the exact height though

That is correct. It is not a highrise, however this fountain is part of a highrise project -- the 1,947ft Port Tower.

**Lets call this a construction update**
