Lahore Development Authority has established the first ever planned business hub of international standard, Finance and Trade Centre, Lahore, over an area of 1123 kanals, near Expo Centre, Johar Town.

The site is close to Lahore Canal, Motorway, Southern Bypass, Rai-Wind Road, Multan Road and other major intercity roads of the provincial metropolis for facilitating easy movement of business community from other cities. Specialized facilities for carrying out different types of major businesses have been provided in the area for making it a nucleus of commercial activities in the second largest city of Pakistan.

LDA has plans to link the FTC to LRR southern loop through a 16.6 Km 10 lane road running parallel to Canal Road. And to construct a 4.8Km Structure road leading to Khayaban-e-Jinnah.




Current Status
For the year 2016-17, LDA earmarked Rs. 390 mn for provision of water supply, sewrage system and improvement of road network in FTC. Currently they are working on adding a 4 lane road along the east edge of FTC.

Tallest building in Lahore, plan approved by LDA



LAHORE - In line with the vision of Prime Minister Imran Khan for encouraging construction of high-rise buildings to save precious land, the Lahore Development Authority on Monday gave a go ahead for construction of city's tallest building at Finance and Trade Centre, Johar Town.

The 500 feet high-rise would be constructed on a 44-kanal piece of land besides a hotel of international chain. Chief Town Planner Syed Nadeem Akhter Zaidi and Additional Director General Housing Zarif Iqbal Satti handed over the approved plan to representatives of the Orient Group, the builder and financier of the project.

Environment Protection Agency and Traffic Engineering and Transportation Planning Agency have also issued no-objection certificates for construction of the building. A water treatment plant would be installed in this building and the treated water would be used for chillers and horticulture purposes. The building would also have arrangements for collection and storage of rainwater, its recycling as well as treatment for recharging of the underground water table. In view of the development of the area as the new financial hub of the provincial metropolis, the LDA informed the district administration as well as Rescue-1122 for making special arrangements for the area for coping with any emergency situation like fire incidents and other such situations.

The construction group has also shared its emergency plan with these departments.

Very ugly looking candy type building. Eye sore.
LDA has decided to build a wall/fence all around Expo Center, Finance and Trade Centre (FTC) Area and also to build security gates at the entry exits points : News

:sly:
Hopefully, that means they're planning or developing some new high-rises there and want to keep the area in between those buildings fence-free and pedestrian friendly.

plot infront of emporium finished that boundry wall all around it may be some new project or just safety stuff :hmm:

The area around the mall really needs some clearing up! Even if the plots are empty the infrastructure and landscaping should be done properly.
yes looks like a desert or dustbowl
The plot is owned by FEB & GIF, they built a boundary around the plot because local kooray walas kept dumping waste there and LDA held them responsible for cleaning it up.

They had a tender notice in the papers for the boundary wall a while ago and one for a security guard room to keep waste and homeless people out.
