Info by m2sheikh

The project is 70% owned by the Dhabi Group and the rest will be owned by the Government of Punjab. The joint group name is "Ta'avun". HOK will be the designers and Turner will act as the project management company.

The main tower will not be 55-storeys high, rather, it would be a 60-storey tower. Thats some news isn't it. There will be a grand shopping mall, details of which are confidential at this point in time. A 5-star hotel will be built, containing 400-500 bedrooms. Again, the name of the hotel will not be disclosed as yet. As mentioned earlier, there will be apartments and office space. Other than the 60-storey tower, there will be 3-4 more buildings surrounding it.

Furthermore, 5-6 cineplex theatres will be built. In addition to that, surprisingly, an ICE RINK will be built too. So we'll have ice in the middle of hot Lahore. I shall also be talking to Tim Horton's (competitor of StarBuck's) which is based in Canada.

Construction of the "ZAYED CENTRE" will begin this year.

You should change the area to some other unit like sq. ft. or acres - Kanals is very much a Lahori measurment unit (It's not even used in Karachi I believe)

Anyhow, can this actually be built on a plot with a size of 11.375 acres only??? (8 Kanals = 1 acre)

One of the best looking buildings I have ever seen.

But how to you pronounce the word "Lahore", do you pronounce it like "The *****"? :sly:

What a beautiful design. Some would describe it as cold but I think it's beautiful because it's simple. A real, soaring tower :cheers:

Wow Congrats to all the Pakistani's, This really is a very good looking tower.

Any confirmation with regards to the height of the building? Could be the tallest in Pakistan ?

Considering the Tallest to date is what around 111 meters in Karachi?

What a beauty!

Two things though: First of all, will it get built?

Secondly, being Pakistan, it will hardly look as nice as it does on the rendering, but let us keep our fingers crossed!

more info by m2sheikh

In addition to the main tower, Zayed Centre will have 3 residential apartment buildings of 20-25 floors each, professionally managed by Hyatt Residency; and one of the biggest and most exclusive shopping / entertainment complexes in the region.

The main tower will also host a 5-star Grand Hyatt Hotel, the largest reception(marriage)/conference halls in the country, plus offices for Multi-National Companies and Large Local Private and Public Corporates.

There will also be exclusive, high-end residential suites in the main tower, again managed by Hyatt Residency. Also, parking space will be provided for over 4,000 cars and Zayed Centre will be connected to the Gaddafi Stadium Sports Complex by a covered, over-head bridge.

The 'Project' is being carried out as a Joint Venture between the Abu Dhabi Group and the Government of Punjab. The two investors have formed a holding company for Zayed Centre called TA`AVUN (Pvt.) Ltd. which will be responsible for managing the project. Turner International (one of the largest construction companies in the US have been hired as contractors/builders; whereas HOK - a firm that designs buildings for Donald Trump, has been retained as Project Consultants & Architects).

The total cost of the project is not known as of yet. However, it is approximated at US$ 500 Million +.

Pakistan will have the unique honour of hosting the tallest building in the
Middle East, Africa, Central, & South Asia, by the time of completion,
January 01, 2010
(if im not wrong, since burj dubai will be completed in 2012?). Zayed Centre's main tower is expected to have
approximately 60 floors and will be visible from across the border in
India.

plot is very big, you only need 1 acre to make a high rise building on.

You really dont know much about Pakistan and your information IS outdated.

1. Pakistan is going through a economic boom and 95% of the projects have actually gone through.

2. Those counstruction projects look EXACTLY like the actual building.

Please refresh your information and data next time.
