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.
UBL Tower is U/C since ages, its developer is Paragon, its U/C on IIC, near Habib Bank Plaza, in front of NBP, and its design is also changed!! And i think its far ahead of KFT!!

This is not IIC or saddar, this is area near Governer House, and the 2nd building (from left to right) is Nacon House.

If thats the case then its great! But we don't have any U/C pics of it. If you could get some, it would be great. We only have 1 Black & White render of it, thats it: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=172245

General Information...

The Current Tallest Building U/C in Karachi, whose height we know in meters, would be the 160m tall twin towers of the Karachi Financial Towers. However, the 47 Floor IT Tower, which has 2 extra floors than the Financial Towers, could be the tallest. But we don't know its height in meters.

CORRECTION: The Tallest Building U/C is the 60 Storey ICON Tower, which is likely to be as tall as the tallest tower of Mabarak Center in Lahore, i.e. almost 240 meters.

I was thinking that we should include ICON Tower in this thread. But I've just gone through its thread. There is a discussion going on about it being U/C & 2 U/C pics of it. But all the renders are the preliminary renders and Mr. Rao has also said that the project has been transferred from ASA Pvt Ltd to some other Architecture Firm. So the designs will also be changed. Unfortunately, that means, that we'll have to wait until we have its final renders to include it in this thread.
