The construction of Lahore’s tallest building has been approved by the Lahore Development Authority (LDA). The building will be constructed at Finance and Trade Centre, Johar Town.
In line with the vision of Prime Minister Imran Khan, the approval was given. He has encouraged the development of high-rise buildings in order to save the land and adjust more people in a space.
On a 44-Kanal piece of land, the 500 feet high-rise will be built, right beside the hotel of an international chain. Orient Group is building and financing the project.
Chief Town Planner Syed Nadeem Akhter Zaidi and Additional Director General Housing Zarif Iqbal Satti handed over the approved plan to Orient Group’s representatives.
No-objection certificates have been issued by the Environment Protection Agency and Traffic Engineering and Transportation Planning Agency for the construction of the building.
Also, according to the plan, a water treatment plant will be installed in the Lahore’s tallest building. The treated water will be used for the purpose of chillers and horticulture.
There will be an arrangement for the collection and storage of rainwater, it’s recycling, and recharging of underground water table treatment.
The district administration and Rescue-1122 have been informed by LDA to make special arrangements in the locality to overcome any incident or emergency situation. The emergency plan has been shared with the departments by the construction groups.
