Musiddiqui I think he meant the 80 Floor KPT Tower Complex not the 1947 ft Tower. Both of them have been labeled as KARACHI - Port Tower, I think that the 2nd one should be called Port Tower, as thats what I've heard it being called.

@ Buyckske

Yeah, thanks!! We thought of sharing some of the projects going on in Pakistan's 3 main cities, as we have accumulated enough pics, renders, data, location maps & videos on them.

You can check out this thread for the KARACHI - Port Tower Complex, in the Supertalls section: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=460243

We really should build the KPT Tower Complex before some other city steals our building...
