  • So who was chosen out of the three companies? The three companies were shortlisted almost 2-3 months ago. Incomplete article.

  • all three are useless companies and not among global firms known for master planning of cities like Lahore. Nespak is useless and has always made design mistakes in most of it’s projects, Miendhart is a firm that is behind all failed projects in Pakistan and who is even Dar Al Hindsa?
