To be fair, the Sherpao bridge and the Fawara Chowk flyover have fairly smooth traffic. What usually botches it up are the check posts in Cantt.

Wouldn't Cantt board have an issue with a flyover there since the elevation would give easy line of sight into their "sensitive" area?

Also, given how tight the Cavalry market side is, fitting an underpass there would mean tearing down some buildings partially to make space.

True. Also there isn't much space to fit flyover or underpass, government has to buy some land there..

I'll believe it when there's actually some work going on at the site. Also, the claim that height is being reduced because of CAA regulations seems odd considering the recent news that CAA has now allowed construction of high-rises.

It was never 1000 ft btw and even at a reduced height, it may still be the tallest depending on what the final height for Orient Square comes around to. It may just come down to a difference of a few feet and one of these may just add a spire just to "edge out" the other.

CAA still has to issue NOC for all tall buildings (10+ stories) that are within 15.24 kms of an airport. This site is ~7.2Kms from the Lahore airport and is also in the direct flight path of Walton Airport.

Orient Square has a height clearance of 500ft by CAA (~14.8 kms from airport). The agenda above has a point that says pursue CAA for re-issuance of 500ft clearance. So if this gets constructed, it'll be as tall as orient square at best. In fact, I don't see CAA issuing any NOCs for more that 500ft in the near future for Lahore.

The govt. should move on this property. If TAAVUN is not interested in doing anything with the site, they should auction the plot off or look for a new partner.

I find it very peculiar that they are planning to do anything on the site when Dhabi group is on the verge of pulling out of the country.

Govt. allow 50 Storey Building Construction in Lahore, Karachi, Peshawar and Multan

High-rise buildings are allowed

The cabinet allowed four major cities of the country — Karachi, Lahore, Peshawar and Multan — to have 50-storey buildings.

“The cabinet allowed 500-foot-high buildings even in the funnel areas (15km radius) of airports in the four cities,” Minister for Aviation Ghulam Sarwar Khan told Dawn after the cabinet meeting.

He said that earlier there was a ban on construction of high-rises in 15km radius of the airports, but now it had been relaxed.

However, it was observed that despite the ban multi-storey buildings were being constructed in the funnel areas of airports.

The restriction had already been lifted in Islamabad.

At a post-cabinet meeting press conference, Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan said the prime minister had directed the authorities concerned to expedite the process of acquiring the assistance of foreign companies to run the country’s airports in a better way under the government’s policies and provide better facilities to the passengers, besides generating more revenue.

The cabinet was briefed on the progress in work on upgrade and reconstruction of Skardu airport. The meeting empowered minister for aviation to renew licences of airlines companies and expressed the hope that the decision would facilitate the companies and expedite the process of renewals.

What’s up with Lahore's new building regulations?

In a tweet in March earlier this year, Prime Minister Imran Khan announced that the cities of Pakistan must grow vertically in order to preserve our green spaces and reduce sprawl. Although well intentioned, Khan is neither an architect nor a city planner. His simplistic view of how to reduce sprawl in our cities does not come as a surprise.

This and other concerns were voiced at a ‘public’ seminar held on 5 August at the LDA Sports Complex. I use the word ‘public’ sparingly because the time and day of the seminar – 11am on a Monday – indicates that the authority had no interest in having the citizenry of Lahore attend the seminar.

LDA representatives highlighted how rapid and uncontrolled commercialisation in the city has wreaked havoc on our infrastructure and public spaces. While the concern is accurate, I did not find its resolution in their draft of the building and zoning regulations.

However, I may be wrong. Soon after this seminar, it was reported that the LDA endorsed of a 40 storey building, a hotel, on The Mall. One can’t help but wonder if the ‘public’ seminar and the haphazard revision in regulations was yet another exercise to support the vested interests of a few at the cost of the city of Lahore.

A few things:
  1. This is why I detest our culture of developing "societies" around airports. Being in close proximity of airports comes at a cost like this.
  2. Someone with knowledge of general civil aviation rules and technicalities around the world can probably shed light on this but from my understanding, both LHE runways are 18/36 so why do we need to have height restrictions on areas that won't be in path of flights taking off or landing (or can be avoided if the planes that need to turn do so a little later when they're beyond the city limits). The regulation would've made more sense if the runways were at an angle that bisects the city, but with the current alignment, it just seems odd.
  3. Unless the rules are relaxed even further, the only way we'd ever have high-rises in Gulberg would be when we have a new airport somewhere outside the city down south and shut down AIIA completely.

We actually do have several of them in Lahore now but not as much as there are in Karachi.
