some info abt the project

haawas said:
well something big is coming in lahore.. today there was an add in news paper saying "Ab dekho duniya yahan sai" and had a corner of a building in the pic. so by the wording its clear its something big and tall.
Well wut Haawas is talking about is the same 31-Storey Steel Structure building coming up which is situated right diagonal of the Pace and next to the 'Gulberg Centre' on the Main Boulevard. It is a centrally air conditioned building designed by an architect from Dubai......if u look at the design u would be amazed at first but i already had cn this design which was earlier made by W.S.Atkins for the project Gold Crest Dubai....so it didnt impress me as such! The project is going to be launched in the next '15 days'…..and then they will give out the details and date of completetion. According to them the project will take upto '3 years 'but I suppose since it is a steel frame structure building, they might complete it well before time. The total area is 8kanals.

Good to hear that development of medium highrises in Lahore is going on. But I don't like the fact that these new buildings are being built in the crappy looking areas. They try to fit them in for example next to a really old house or a traffic jammed area. Why don't they build all of these new buildings in an open area?

^^^^
if u live in **** then u will realize that every person who have a little bit of money is trying to build a multi storey over it.....they dont care what IMPACT the building would have onto itz SURROUNDINGS.......alll they want is more n more money......

Over the years i have realized that there is too much of monoply and building bye-laws are over rulled by ppl with money....small residential roads in gulberg like Hali Road, Galib Road, Tariq Road have been commercialized.....as a result of which u have a 20storey tower on one plot n next door a double storey 4 kanal house whoz owner is forced to sell the house on a lum sum amount, the result is that an ordinary 40-60feet wide street turns out to b a hub of traffic congestion.....this is the ill planing of the government.......

We already have wider roads, like Main Boulevard, Ferozpur Road, Jail Road which have space for such multi-storey buildings......

Zulqi.....we dont have much of open areas in the developed lahore.......plus if we start building such buildings away from the CBD of lahore they will not run as succesfully as shops in Gulberg or anywhr is Lahore....

I saw in Karachi Jang about" yahan se oper dekho" for 3 consecutive days during last week. But after that there isnt any Add in any newspaper here. Its really surprising. Is this project is that?

Why are we copying a design from Dubai? And why does everyone of our towers have to have those exposed shops in the bottom floors!?!?!
Still, doesnt look as good as the one in Dubai but nice to see some tall towers...
