You guys know the Pizza hut building at Boat Basin? Which used to be an ugly 3 or 4 story building? Well, they've turned it into an absolutely beautiful 15 story tower! I couldn't believe how beautiful it looks when I saw it a few hours ago. It was night time though so I couldn't take a pic, if someone else can, please do!

There are so many new local buildings coming up in Karachi but all of them are under 20 floors

The building is complete now, so this is not an 'update', rather ooga is showing you guys which building I was talking about.

It's for people going straight, now they don't have to face the wrath of that traffic light there, they can just get on that flyover and keep going straight.

The garbage doesn't go away, but blocks most of the sewage drainages & ends up in liyari nudee or beaches.

The city usually ignores effective ways to deal with its grabage disposal

So that people on Sh. Faisal going towards Saddar can make a right turn or u-turn under the bridge, and so that people can take left turns and u-turns from the other side as well. There used to be a signal here and it was a major clog point.
