And this project has changed to this:







Nicer design I think. Though shame about the height.

Its in its final stages according to news:

Chairman of AlGhurair Giga (Pvt) Ltd., Mr. Hajji Rafique Giga, along with some foreign dignitaries, visited World Trade Center Islamabad. After his visit to the World Trade Center Islamabad he assured the completion of the building is in its final touches, as he has analyzed its constructive process which is found to be reasonable and satisfactory.

The Centaurus will not look great until the hotel tower is complete. I wish they'd start the work already. I wonder how the people who've bought apartments in this project will tolerate the workers/noise when construction starts on the hotel tower, if the tenants move in while work is underway.

dont hold your breath.

Right now. It looks like that hotel tower will never see the light of the day.

I have seen quite a few projects in subcontinent where the tallest &/or most beautiful tower is part of the project & in the rendering only & on paper.

If Hotel tower hasn't been u/c by now, its never gonna get build. This is what seperates subcontinent mega projects from chinese & dubai ones.

The tallest tower gets u/c first & t/o first before they runs out of money.

Subcontinent mega projects are opposite.

all the small towers gets build first & builders run out of money & unless all the small towers are sold & they make profit, the 'landmark' will never gets build.

same looks true here so far.

ISLAMABAD, Nov 22: With the expected amendments to the building code being considered by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), the federal capital is likely to have some highrise buildings whose construction had previously been stalled due to their proposed height crossing the permissible limit.

The CAA is pondering over reducing the aerodrome limit from 15km to almost 8km and allowing construction of highrise towers in densely populated areas above the limit of 500 feet, Dawn has learnt.

An aerodrome or airfield is a location from where flight operations take place.

Sources said the decision in this regard was being taken with a view to encouraging investment in the federal capital and boosting business activities particularly in the construction sector.

A document made available to Dawn related to the minutes of the meeting in which the building control department briefed the CAA officials about the highrise buildings in the areas having more air traffic or located near the airports claiming that it would not affect the air traffic.

“The move is aimed at providing more space to the developers for highrise buildings and a likely change in the policy will have countrywide impact and provide more opportunities to the investors,” observed an official close to the developments.

He said if the current move was approved by the federal government, the building code relating to aerodrome limits and highrise buildings of the Civil Aviation Authority would be changed.The official said once the approval was given by the CAA, the builders of Grand Hyatt, an incomplete hotel in the capital, would also benefit from the policy.

The builders of Grand Hyatt, a five-star 37-storey hotel near Jinnah Convention Centre, had already moved the court claiming Rs6.5 billion in damages as, according to them, the civic authority was not ready to remove the hurdles in the way to complete the project.

The BNP Group, a consortium of three construction firms, in 2007 purchased land for the hotel for Rs4.88 billion but could not start work because of height restriction imposed by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).

The proposed height of the Grand Hyatt was around 708 feet and the CAA raised an objection over the building plan as it would be, if constructed, in violation of the height restriction of 500 feet.

“Once the approval is given, the expansion of Blue Area is likely as it would have new towers taller than those in other cities of the country,” said a CDA official.
