I'm a bit tired of twisting towers but it's ok to have some more built.
The tower seems a bit fat in the last rendering.I hope they choose the thinner one.

if true this might explain the delay in starting construction

Aedas regeneration for Karachi Port planned for Spring 2008

Thursday, 20 March 2008

Tenders for a landmark waterside development at Mai Kolachi adjacent to the Port of Karachi in Pakistan have been received and are currently being evaluated following the implementation of Aedas’ international competition-winning design for a mixed-use scheme.

Endorsed in 2007 by the Prime Minister of Pakistan, the development will command an iconic presence and provide an instantly recognisable beacon to Pakistan’s principal city of Karachi and the country’s largest sea port. The project is expected to commence on site in the second quarter of 2008.

The scheme which includes five high rise towers focuses around the centrepiece; an elegant 78-storey fully glazed tower The tower comprises 162,000 sq m of office space crowned with a 250-bed six-star luxury hotel with additional serviced apartments. The hotel bedrooms are cleverly arranged around an 85m-high atrium to maximise the magnificent views over the Arabian Sea.

Advanced digital modelling and sustainable design practices have responded to ecological challenges, drastically reducing the building’s carbon footprint and harnessing the potential of natural resources. The development is designed to set an exemplary precedent in Pakistan for environmentally responsible architecture and construction standards though the use of low energy design principles and techniques to maximise the use of passive environmental control.

Designed for the Karachi Port Trust, the development will help satisfy an international and domestic demand for institutionally acceptable ‘British Council for Offices (BCO)’ standard space. It will also help satisfy a significant shortage of luxury hotel accommodation and aspirational residential property in a city with a population of over 17 million. The development will be the catalyst that creates the heart of a new Central Business District and help realise Karachi’s optimum commercial and lifestyle potential.

Aedas has worked closely in partnership with the Karachi Port Trust, MM Pakistan and Mott MacDonald UK and Dubai.

Karachi port regeneration, Karachi, Pakistan

Friday 14 Mar 2008

Big plans for Pakistan
Construction is soon to start on Aedas’ new landmark scheme in Mai Kolachi, Pakistan

Plans for a landmark waterside development at Mai Kolachi adjacent to the Port of Karachi in Pakistan have been received and are currently being evaluated following the implementation of Aedas’ international competition-winning design for a mixed-use scheme. Endorsed in 2007 by the Prime Minister of Pakistan, the development will command an iconic presence and provide a recognisable beacon to Pakistan’s principal city of Karachi and the country’s largest sea port.

The scheme which includes five high rise towers focuses around the centrepiece; a 78-storey fully glazed tower. The tower comprises 162,000sq m. of office space crowned with a 250-bed six-star luxury hotel with additional serviced apartments. The hotel bedrooms are cleverly arranged around an 85m-high atrium to maximise the views over the Arabian Sea. Advanced digital modelling and sustainable design practices have responded to ecological challenges, drastically reducing the building’s carbon footprint and harnessing the potential of natural resources.

Designed for the Karachi Port Trust, the development will help satisfy an international and domestic demand for institutionally acceptable ‘British Council for Offices (BCO)’ standard space. It will also help satisfy a significant shortage of luxury hotel accommodation and high end residential property. Work is set to begin this spring.
