Description:
LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi has approved the construction of a commercial centre, Shaikh Zayed Complex, on Ferozepur Road. The centre, consisting of a basement and three towers, will house a shopping mall, hotels, corporate offices and mini cinemas. Its construction will start next month.

The DHABI Group of United Arab Emirates will construct the tallest building in Pakistan over an area of 91 kanals at a cost of Rs 15 billion.

Chairing a meeting on Monday, the chief minister said that the centre would promote trade and recreational activities in the provincial metropolis and generate around 30,000 jobs.

The meeting was informed that the centre's banquet hall would have a seating capacity of around 5,000 and its four parking basements would have space for around 4,000 vehicles.

The chief minister said that the Punjab government and the DHABI Group would soon sign an agreement to form a company, named Taawan, to execute the project. He said that the company would have directors both from the Punjab government and the DHABI Group.

Elahi said that Shaikh Zayed Complex would play an important role in generating economic activity in the province and would improve the living standard of the people.

Bashir Tahir, the DHABI Group chief executive, Kamran Rasool, the Punjab chief secretary, Salman Siddique, finance secretary, Sibtain Fazal Haleem, communication and works secretary, and Pervaiz A Shahid, the Bank Alflah executive incharge, attended the meeting.

Tahir said that his group was launching several projects in telecommunication, banking and other industries in Pakistan. He said that Shaikh Zayed Complex would give an impetus to trade and business activities.

I'm not satisfied with the design. Despite it huge size, the building doesnt contains elements that would further increase its proportional beauty neither does it seems to flow in accordance with the international design. The investors should have tried to develop something interesting over such a large area. Buildings at this scale should not represent purity of material ie the structure should not show that it is composed of glass concrete and metal but such a large mass should be moulded into a better volumetrically as well as spacially impact creating building. Comparitively i like the volumes and proportion of the Expo Centre Tower.

I dont know what basement are you talking about webmaster, I passed the site a couple of times and apart from a couple crains (doing nothing) and a few trucks (doing nothing) there is just one big hole there. I passed the site at 12:30 PM at first and then 5PM and I see no work being done.

They are working on the foundation aka basement in my book of definitions.



Why are we all paranoid anyway? It is underconstruction and that is what matters.
