Many people said the same thing about the Burj Dubai a few years ago, but that one is getting built right now. So we'll just wait and see wether this one gets build or not.

I have a nice link

Port Tower

There is a dearth of world-class recreational facilities in the city. So KPT is offering a Joint Venture project to establish a 1947 ft high Port Tower with commercial cum recreational center. Integrating into Karachi’s skyline, the main feature of the venture shall be commercial complex, residential estate, recreational facilities and resorts along with a viewing gallery offering a panoramic view of the coastline and the city.

The Tower is planned to be located at the Clifton shoreline. Presently proposals invited through press from the interested firms are under study.

Oh wow, what an absolutely gorgeous design. Regarding the symbolic height, I'm surprised most anybody in Pakistan would know what a foot was; I thought few people outside the US, Canada, and UK (besides us skyscraper buffs who would see feet all the time anyway) knew anything other than meters.

KPT Tower is not Port Tower Complex - they are two independent projects.
