Civil war? It's amazing how CNN can scare the world...a few riots happen in the rowdy parts of town and that's a civil war?



BTW that map is not official, but amazing nonetheless. The other maps were patethic and so unrealistic.

to check out the new Port Tower design watch the Karachi Waterfront video in the Karachi Waterfront thread http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=455319 they show Port Tower towards the end of the video and refer to it as The 1947 Tower

Whoever named the second tower was an idiot and should be slapped severely for his/her ignorance.

2. That karachi metro map is more of someones enthusiastic effort to make a map but i do not think its anything official( I am not sure though).

And "Duz" does not mean under in urdu.

The Port tower complex project is approved but may take some time to kick off. Then there are some environment concerns and some reclamation to be done. But it would much clearer after the elections. Also its a huge project(since now its part of the karachi waterfront) that will go in phases.
and DUZ still means under/beneath
like zamin duz (underground)

Isn't it going to be 1947 feet high? To signify the year of Pakistan's independence?

If you're talking about the thread title which says "1946ft". Then thats probably a typo. I think I pointed that out before.
