Comments

    1. That would be a good development initiative if constructed and operated after EIA at planning stage and EMS implemented during operation. There are many good examples available now Internationally even within Islamabad.

  1. CAA, instead of investing into this project which will be commercially viable in next 15 years, should invest in PIA instead. The benefit is immediate, both in terms of hard and soft gains. The national carrier will be out of red as well.

  2. The Greek town planner and architect of Islamabad Mr CA Doxiadis never designed a skyscraper in Islamabad and advised not to do so due the are on fault line. Like before earthquakes are expected. See the gate of Mustafa Towers during the last earthquake. So beware of skyscrapers in Islamabad.

  3. Hope emergency services like fire fighting and earthquake response will also be available for sky scrapers.

  4. عمارتوں کا جنگل بنائو اسلامآباد کے سیکٹرز ویران پڑے ھین ۔سی ڈی اے اپنی لینڈ ریکوایر کروائے

  5. Instead of all this trash please invest into education sector .. please construct NCA campus in Islamabad and shift the Rawalpindi one over here
