Lahore to Get Its Tallest Building Ever

The Lahore Development Authority (LDA) has given a go-ahead to the construction of a 45-story building at Finance and Trade Center in Johar Town.

The 500-foot high-rise building will be constructed on a 5.5-acre area and would include a hotel built by an international chain. The hotel will comprise 45 floors, including three basements.

LDA Chief Town Planner Syed Nadeem Akhter Zaidi and Additional Director General for Housing Zarif Iqbal Satti gave the approved plan to the representatives of the Orient Group, which is the financer and the constructor of the project.

The Traffic Engineering & Transportation Planning Agency and the Environmental Protection Agency has already issued a No-Objection Certificate (NOC) for this building’s construction.

The LDA has asked the district administration and Rescue 1122 to make special arrangements for the area and be prepared to cope with emergencies like fire incidents and similar incidents.

Director General LDA Amna Imran Khan has also asked the private housing societies in Lahore to earmark the land for Naya Pakistan Housing Program.

“Apartments will be built in skyscrapers on mortgage financing as per Naya Pakistan Housing Programme,” said DG LDA. The authorities have decided to organize a seminar next month in which proposals from private housing schemes will be obtained.

    • Haha but the 1st Bahria town was construct in Rawalpindi (islamabad).This group belongs from punjab. Even Malik riaz was born in Sialkot. If Karachi builders make this then I would like to appreciate you but now it’s shame for you. 2nd thing bcuz of earthquakes we are not constructing taller buildings in Punjab.

  • Abdul Wahab, its comments like yours that seek to divide. Youve frustrated hence sentiments expressed. Advice is nothing constructive to say it, then dont. Being a non birth of Pakistani origin, i see why the west have moved and why pak has been at a stalemate and its time to get act together.

  • Please. Let’s stop this childish I am better than you behaviour. One cities success and development is going forward for the whole of Pakistan. I urge you please be one and united. Isn’t that what our faith teaches us?

  • This Karachi vs Lahore debate is decades old. Though I am against this, irony is that the picture of CenterPoint building in Karachi has been used in the post of Lahore’s tallest building. I wonder if it was intentional to start the debate? :)
