FWO Towers – Pakistan’s Tallest Building coming in DHA City Karachi (DCK)


Commander 5 Corps and President Executive Board DHA Lt Gen Shahid Baig Mirza, HI(M) performed the Ground Breaking of DCK Interchange project on M-9 in a simple ceremony held at DHA City.

He said that it was reassuring that DCK Interchange will play a significant role in providing multiple connectivity, easy accessibility and smooth approach to DHA City reflecting DCK’s conceptual vision of a modern city of Pakistan.



DG Frontier Works Organization recounted the significant contributions of FWO towards national development in shape of important mega projects of significance. He announced that the strategic DCK Interchange project would be completed in a record period of one year, half the stipulated time of completion without comprising its quality and design parameters. He also announced the foundation laying of FWO Towers to be build in DCK which would be the tallest building of Pakistan with 65 stories. DG further revealed that FWO was speedily completing K-4 project and in summer’s next year the project would be commissioned that will significantly curtail the problem of acute water shortage in the metropolis.

Doesn't make much sense to build two 65 story towers in the middle of the desert. Unlike Bahria there is little or no construction in DHA City. No one lives there yet. If they want to build apartments it makes more sense to build 10-15 story buildings.

But, who knows, they may build them to attract attention and to increase land prices in their project.

Don't worry, it'll take them around 20+ years to build this one. By that completion time, it won't be much of a desert.

can the army owned companies do us a huge favor and prioritize the Airforce tower in Clifton and/or move this project to Clifton as well because it will be a waste in the middle of the desert. Even if it was in Bahria Town it would be less of a waste.

how stupid they are , they are making a high rise in an area where plenty of land is available.... high rises should are made in places where smaller areas are worth millions of dollars, not that you are taking free of cost "plot" from DHA through your local jugar and making a high rise out of it. ridiculous.

My take on this: it will never get built, and even built, will never be occupied....DHA city karachi is turning into another DHA valley islamabad.... as soon as DHA parted its ways from Bahria, it scummed to competition. they are having flop shows one after another.

What about the projects that are under construction? Most of the highrises in Karachi are going up in Clifton.
Yeah they are and I hope they manage to.
Chief justice was questioning Malik Riaz on legal status of Bahria icon during bahria town case hearing as 6fl+ buildings are no longer allowed and wanted to put a hold on construction.

^^ The construction is in full swing though. My office is in the vicinity so I cross the building every day.
Bahria Town is using the same strategy to grow. They've got high rises coming up when most of BTK is barren land.
