not 100%, but it will be in sector c or in lake city.


ring road will also pass bahria town, that would also have many towers on it.

this area should be lahores downtown in the next 5 years.

Sounds interesting. I think the LDA should consider having an exit for 'Independence Dr' on the Ring Road.

It will be on the main boulevard of sector C which is much longer than 4Km but only a 4 Km section will be highrise specific that has been named Independence Drive.

4-km for highrises is pretty good. That could give Lahore the much awaited 'Downtown' area! :D

Does Pakistan have enough investment to fill up the highrises?
And the picture never seems to be accurate. I mean, I been to Pak and there is never that much greenery. Still looks nice.

Pakistanis till now have preferred to stay in the villas and houses.

I see a move towards apartments.

Not sure whteher it is actually better than what is happening now.

but you have to match the other cities with skyscrappers i guess.
:tiasd:

with the real estate boom house prices have also boomed, the poor are being forced to move into flats/apartments, so expect a whole lot of towers.
