Hi KB,

Under "Floors" can you please put 17fl x 12 as we have this info now:

Brig Tirmizi, who assumed office on Sept 6, said that the Creek Vista apartments, which comprise 12 seventeen storey buildings and have over 720 apartments, are now almost ready, and owners would be handed over possession of the apartments between December 2008 and April 2009. The Creek Vista apartments have been constructed over 16 acres, and have a total covered area of over three million feet.

Proposed: KPT Tower = 5 + Port tower = 1

Grand Total = 79 + 6 Proposed.
Add to this the Defence Regency = 3 + Saima Bridge View Apartments = 8

So that brings the total U/C towers to 79 + 8 + 3 = 90 Towers

The Clifton Finance and Trade Center might be under construction already. I passed by the site last week at midnight and there was that tripod machine there, and it was working at that time. Lots of pure white smoke was coming out from under the machine, dunno what was going on

But it does seem that the tower is in the initial stages of construction.

Anyway the way I put it as 25+ is that its multiple buildings of multiple heights ( I guess). So I put it at 25+ since 25 is the minimum and others are variable.

If this is not the case, PM me and I will gladly change it.
