Can a mod please update accordingly?
thanks
They should change it back. Who the heck is Mabarak? Unless they named it after the Egyptian president, but that dude is named Mubarak, so probably it's some other guy.

Blame the Emiraties. They came up with this ulgy sounding name!

And no the building won't be 75 storeys tall. Sources say it to be between 55 to 60 floors. The height of an average floor in Pakistan for such a project is 13 feet. Meaning that this one will be between 218 meters to 238 meters. Can mods please change it from just 198 meters?

His Highness Sheikh Nahayan Mabarak Al Nahayan (Arabic: الشيخ نهيان بن مبارك آل نهيان‎) is the United Arab Emirates Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research.

He's also the chairman of AbuDhabi group, thats making the investment.

Some INFO on Mabarak Center

This 8 million-sf (743,600-sm) project includes a 60-story office and residential tower. It will also include three 45-story residential towers, a 24-story hotel tower and a 16-story apartment building on top of a stepped retail podium.

LINK>>>>>http://www.lera.com/projects/hot/

Looks like it will be 60 not 55.

MODS PLEASE CHANGE IT!

Here we can clearly see how many buildings and how big this project is going to be. Would be amazing to see it completed. Also, we can see how long the underpass would be there on Ferozpur road that connects it with the other side of the road.

NEW SITE OFFICE AND MABARAK CENTER SITE pics would be coming up (courtesy RANA ofcourse)
