Well its touted as a 6-star residential development. So it is likely to be expensive. I only have this post to go by which says that a 4-Bedroom Apartment costs 38 Million Pakistani Rupees. Maybe someone else knows more. Keep in mind though that recently the price of the Pakistani Rupee has devalued from 60 to a Dollar to almost 80 to a Dollar now. So its price might have changed. However, there is demand for it, thats why such projects are being built in Pakistan.

Please have the courtesy to go through the thread and understand it first. Rather than posting ignorant posts. This thread is only about U/C projects. UBL Tower & Clifton Finance and Trade Centre are just proposed projects, we have only seen their renders. There are no U/C pics of them. UBL Tower has been proposed since ages. Sine 2004 if I remember correctly. These 2 projects are likely to never see the light of day. Plus wait for more info Icon Tower. We don't have enough info on it to include it in this thread as of yet. Be patient.

No worries man. Its okay And I just checked the Clifton Finance & Trade Centre thread. Only 2 pics of it render and a useless discussion on its design. Nothing else.
