Proposed 39 Storey Tower:



Giga Group has announced the launch of its state of the art 39 story commercial tower in Pakistan's business hub of Karachi, Goldcrest Executive.

The tower is equipped with all modern facilities including high speed elevators, backup generators, security surveillance, health and leisure facilities, all under one roof. The location is Karachi's prestigious district of Clifton. This project is going to be Pakistan's new water front icon and will change the way of doing business.

Update on Lyari Expressway


Northbound Section of Lyari Expressway opened

KARACHI: A section of the north-bound carriageway of the Lyari Expressway project connecting Sir Shah Suleman Road with Sohrab Goth was opened for vehicular traffic on Saturday.

Federal Communication Minister Dr Arbab Alamgir Khan inaugurated the Sir Shah Suleman-Sohrab Goth Interchange of the north-bound carriageway of the project at a ceremony held here.

The opening of the interchange would facilitate the residents of Liaquatabad, Yaseenabad, Federal B Area, North Nazimabad and other areas who want to travel to the Superhighway and Mauripur Road.

The distance from Shah Suleman Interchange to the Superhighway and Mauripur Road is six kilometres and 11 kilometres, respectively.

Terming the inauguration of the interchange on the north-bound carriageway a big achievement, the minister said that over 16-kilometre-long south-bound carriageway of the project had already been completed and opened for vehicular traffic.

‘I am thankful to the Sindh government and the Karachi city government for their help and cooperation with us in this project,’ he said.

He said the entire project of the Lyari Expressway was estimated to cost Rs8.5 billion and so far 70 per cent work of the project had been completed.

‘We want to complete the project as soon as possible and in this regard we need help and cooperation of the provincial and city governments.’

Dr Khan said that the project would provide a fast and efficient link between the Karachi Port and upcountry areas.

National Highway Authority Chairman Altaf Ahmed Chaudhry informed the minister that after the inauguration of the Sir Shah Suleman-Sohrab Goth Interchange, a phase of the mega project had been completed.

‘We have completed the special phase of the project and now the traffic is running on both north- and south-bound carriageways. There are two exit and entry points on the expressway,’ he added.

He said that in future the remaining portions of the expressway would be constructed with the efforts of all stakeholders.

He said that very few cosmopolitan cities in the Asian countries had motor limited access highway. The concept of motor limited access highway completely applied to the Lyari Expressway project, he added.

I saw the hole in the ground for the Icon Tower. It's deeper and bigger than it looks in the picture. But its location suuuuuuucks. Right next to that mazar but across from Park Towers. Don't know how such contrasting buildings will exist next to each other.

I don't know, it has no signboard or render on site, it's probably being constructed by some local builder. I am pleasantly surprised by the number of mid rises coming up in the Tariq Road/Bhadarubad region.
