Overall view of the site


Crane with drill machine making hole in the ground for pile. The pile diameter is about 2 feet.


Iron Bars made in circular form. The will be used as shown in the next pic


The steel mesh is being made for the pile foundation. Each pile has a mesh diameter of 18inches and will be surrounded by 3 inches of concrete so the total diameter is 24inches.




The mouth of the machine. It has got a cutter edge at the bottom which rotates drilling a hole in the ground. They were about 250 piles to be dug.....only 9 have been dug up n filled with concrete yet. Each has a depth of about 75-80feet.

The Tallest U/C Building in Lahore is the Main Tower of Mabarak Center. It will be between 750-800 ft or 229-244 m tall. So its height has been estimated to be around 238 meters. It will be by far the tallest building in Lahore, as all the rest of the accompanying towers of Mabarak Center would be below 200 meters. And Alamgir Tower, the next tallest project, would be below 150 meters.

EDIT: It will actually be 250 meters tall.

The main tower of the scheme will be about 60 storeys high and around 250 metres tall, surrounded by four shorter buildings creating a brand new business district that the Pakistani government hopes will help drive regeneration and modernisation of the area.

I found a proper source for it. It will be 250 meters tall. Not 238 meters.

The main tower of the scheme will be about 60 storeys high and around 250 metres tall, surrounded by four shorter buildings creating a brand new business district that the Pakistani government hopes will help drive regeneration and modernisation of the area.
