Yeah, thanks. The Airport has been designed to handle an annual traffic of 6.5 million passengers (6th paragraph) compared to the existing capacity of 3.04 Million of the current Islamabad International Airport.

An airport which is also regarded as being too small & congested for the needs of the Twin cities of Islamabad & Rawalpindi and also the flights onto the Tourist destinations of the Northern Areas of Pakistan. Seen as the current Islamabad International Airport is the closest International Airport to the Northern Areas of Pakistan and people going towards the Northern Areas first drop off at Islamabad and then make their way to the places in the Northern areas like Gilgit, Skardu etc etc. The Airport was also a part of the previous (Musharraf's) Government's plan to make Islamabad a Hub of Tourism for Pakistan.

Total number of Towers going up in Islamabad:

ISLAMABAD: Centaurus = 4 (Towers) + Grand Hyatt = 3 + Gold Crest DHA = 17 + ISE Towers = 2 + Telecom Tower = 1 + Platinum Square WTC = 6 + State Life Tower = 1

Grand Total = 34.

I didn't count Inter-Continental Hotel as it will only be 9 stories tall.

Okay, for some reason the render of The Centaurus isn't showing up. Maybe something wrong with that link. Please replace it with another render of it.

EDIT: It just started working now.

Okay continuing with ISE's Towers...

August 7th, 2006









October 2nd, 2006



A new crane is being assembled(green):





Construction Pix JUN 2007

The ISE towers, the Telecom tower, State life tower, kulsoom plaza underpass, china chowk underpass, the new faisal avenue flyover-cum-underpass, and the Centaurus are all being constructed on this road(all the towers are on a service road).

Standing closer to the 7th Avenue, far behind the two existing towers, another emerges. And further behind the ISE towers will be the Centaurus!!
