Well, they topped out quite a while ago and currently cladding seems to be going on at a good pace.

Development changing Skyline of Islamabad

With rapid increase in the number of high-rise buildings and development work underway across the town, the skyline of the capital city has completely changed from what it was few years back and the town surely looks well on way to matching any modern metropolis elsewhere.

For years a bank building at Zero Point stood majestically as the most impressive in town but that status has long since been taken away by other structures and landmarks. Massive development has seen several new buildings come up while others more stylish and mighty are being built that promise to make the Capital look truly modern in the years to come.

Among them, of course would be the Centaurus complex in the commercial heartland of city that will have a 37-storey hotel, residential apartments having 21 storeys and a 25-storey corporate office tower besides a shopping mall.

The magnificent design of the complex indeed threatens to overshadow some of the existing buildings and those that would eventually rise. Built close to the residential areas, the complex has also been criticised for damaging the peaceful environment of the area in the years to come but with the national monument on one side and the regal Faisal Mosque on the other, the trio of skyscrapers is bound to stand out.

Just as the Faisal Mosque sitting in the lap of the Margalla Hills is a setting fit for a picture postcard, town planners see Centaurus as another of Islamabad’s significant landmarks on its completion in 2010.

Telecom tower has crossed ISE, which makes telecom tower the tallest building so far until centaurus comes along ofc.

Telecom Tower and ISE could have been a complex.

That would be strange a telecom tower is always a telecom tower on its own, and a stock exchange is always a stock exchange on its own.

I didn't mean that. I meant as buildings, not as functions.

Latest pics of the ISE Towers & Telecom Tower, taken by ABBASIA & Abid Siddiqui.

The Telecom Tower is at the 17th floor now, just 7 more to go. Will take a bit more than 2 months to reach its full height of 24 floors. And the ISE Towers are starting to look SEXY with their cladding coming on!

All pics taken yesterday:

This post by ABBASIA, may be able to answer your question:

Back in Pakistan I park my car in front of hotel across the road and it was my every day routine to see construction going on.
