KARACHI: Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz will be the chief guest of the groundbreaking ceremony of a 27-story hotel today (Wednesday) at Governor House.
A special meeting of Cantonment Board Clifton was held Tuesday to consider the approval of the architectural drawings of Sofitel Tower at the old Mideast Hospital Clifton site. The meeting was chaired by Cantonment Board President Brigadier Kamran Aziz Qazi and was attended by Khawaja Iftikhar Ahmed Mir, CEO, and representatives of DHA, Pakistan Navy, and sponsors/owners of Sofitel Tower along with their technical team.
A presentation was given by traffic engineer Farooque Umar on issues raised by the Cantonment Board Clifton at an earlier meeting. After detailed deliberations and discussions the board unanimously resolved to provisionally approve the architectural drawings subject to the provision of an NOC from the CAA for height clearance, the Pakistan Navy from the security point of view and SEPA from an environmental point of view. The Sofitel Tower, to be completed in three years, comprises five basements and a six-story shopping mall.
PPI adds: Sindh Minister for Industry and Trade Muhammad Adil Siddiqui said on Tuesday that a large number of foreigners were moving to Karachi which had created a dire need for such a hotel in the city where more and more international industrial and trade exhibitions were being held. When these events take place, the city’s hotels are all over-booked and more were needed to reduce pressure on the existing ones.
