LIST OF FAMOUS TALLEST BUILDINGS IN KARACHI

Karachi is the financial capital of Pakistan. It accounts for a large part of Pakistan's tax revenue and has more than 25 million inhabitants. It is the second-largest city in the world by population. The city of Karachi seems to be growing faster than ever due to the increasing construction of multi-storey buildings. Each tall building, typically more than ten floorstall, was built for commercial or private use and is a wonderful addition to the city skyline. BAHRIA ICON TOWER: The highest elevation in the Karachi skyline is currently the Bahria Icon Tower. With 62 floors, the Bahria Icon Tower not only in the list of the tallest buildings in Karachi but also the whole country. The Bahria Icon Tower was built for both private and commercial use and has several floors intended for serviced office space. The remaining floors are for private use with serviced apartments. Construction of the Bahria Icon Tower began in 2012, and it will be some time before this project is completed. This towering skyscraper, with its unbelievably unique architecture visible from much of the city, is now considered one of Karachi's most significant landmarks. OCEAN TOWN KARACHI: The second tallest building in Pakistan is the Ocean Towers Karachi, formerly known as The Mall or Sofitel Hotel Plaza. The building is located near Clifton, the picturesque coastal area of ??the city of Karachi. The construction of this skyscraper started in 2007 and was completed in 2014. The project cost a total of 7 billion Pak rupees and is 120 meters high with a total of 30 floors. EMPRESS BUILDING MARKET: Empress Market was built in 1884-1889 at the height of the British Raj in the subcontinent and is named British Empress, Queen Victoria. The building now serves as a popular and busy marketplace for shopping, with goods ranging from fresh food to pets, textiles, and stationery. The location of the building was important at the time, as a series of native spays were ruthlessly killed here during the Indian mutiny of 1857 to prevent locals from participating in future uprisings. FRERE HALL: Frere Hall is a Victorian building with sprawling gardens that offers hundreds of people daily rest and relaxation. The building was completed in 1865 and originally built as the city hall of Karachi. Today it is a first-class showroom, art gallery, and library. The design of Frere Hall is mainly Venetian-Gothic with some British and local design elements. The facade, which consists mainly of yellow limestone, has several pointed arches, ribbed vaults, quatrefoil, and flying buttresses. Many walls are decorated with beautiful carvings and mosaics. MOHATTA PALACE: Mohatta Palace is one of the main destinations in Karachi, even if you only visit the city for one day. The Rajasthani design of the building was commissioned in 1927 by the Hindu prince ShivratanChandraratanMohatta, who built it as a summer house. The building used yellow Gizri and pink Jaipur stones that were loved by the then architects as a quality standard. Today, the magnificent structure serves as a museum and art gallery after the prince abandoned it when he moved to India during the historic partition. MCB TOWER: Being a hub of head offices, II Chundrigar Road was awarded another one of the tallest buildings in Karachi, known as the MCB Tower, in the year 2005. Muslim Commercial Bank, abbreviated as MCB, is headquartered in this building. The completion of this 29 floors high structure along with three basement floors took a time span of over three years. MCB Towers took skyline of Karachi to new heights from where there was no coming back. It enjoyed the status of being the tallest building in Karachi for a few years before the construction of Ocean Tower near Do Talwar. HABIB BANK PLAZA: The very first and most important entry in the list of tallest buildings in Karachi is the Habib Bank Plaza. There was a time when Karachiites visited II Chundrigar Road to take a look at Habib Bank Plaza. It was the first skyscraper in Karachi, which counted over 20 floors. Built in 1963, Habib Bank Plaza has remained the tallest building in Pakistan for over 40 years, still serving as the headquarters of Habib Bank. The title of the tallest skyscraper in Karachi, however, was deleted from another tall structure, the MCB Tower, built in the mid-2000s. DOLMEN TOWERS CLIFTON: Close to the Executive Tower, where the famous Dolmen Mall Clifton is located, there are some buildings under construction. These buildings, known as dolmen towers, are almost the same height and have the same number of floors. One thing that makes them pretty noticeable is that they park several floors above the ground. These buildings are located on the coast of Karachi, which is believed to be an ideal location for commercial activities. Upon completion, they should serve as office complexes.

How to stay away from fraud when buying a property

How to stay away from fraud when buying a property

Pakistan's real estate has grown tremendously over the last decade, causing every pro-investor to buy land or invest in real estate. If you have decided on real estate, you need to understand the process to make smart financial decisions and prevent yourself from being victimized by fraudulent agents and activities. Find the Property Value Yourself: Did you find a property that you noticed? If so, you need to determine the market value. You can check the real estate price online and contact various brokers to determine the market value of a particular property. I hope that after contacting various agents and conducting online research, you will be able to determine the true market value of your desired property. Choose the Experienced Agent: Most of you may not agree with this point, but it is true that you should not completely trust an agent. You can do online research on Jagah online to find the desired property. Also, remember that you can negotiate the price with the providers listed in the portal. If you do not regularly buy or sell real estate, you need to work with the professionals. Choose different real estate agents, check the references and commit yourself to take the lead. Negotiate with the Owner: Ask your real estate agent to arrange a meeting directly with the property owner. Never make a deal with the agent alone. Meet the real owner, check the ownership of the property and check the original remittance slip of the property. If the agent does not seem ready to arrange the meeting, just go away from the business. Once the price is fixed and the property is confirmed, you seal the deal with the security money that should not exceed Rs: 100,000. Avoid giving cash when you pay the property price. It is always better to prepare a money order. It's better to involve the bank to keep a transaction record than regret your decision later.

House Construction and Labour Cost

House Construction and Labour Cost

Building a home is complicated as it requires the involvement of many professionals whose expertise determines how comfortable you are in finding your brand new location. As we discuss the entire process of building houses, we must address so many important aspects and aspects, each requiring a detailed and separate article. Therefore, this is limited to the manpower and costs required to build the gray structure of the house. Contractor or Builder: After completing the blueprints of your home and the approval of the relevant authorities, it is most important to find and hire the right builder or contractor. You can do this in three ways: You have your architect find the right contractor to take care of hiring workers and oversee the entire construction process. They find a contractor themselves, provide him with the designs and give him the authority to select the building material and the workers. You will find the contractor yourself, but provide him with the necessary building material to ensure quality. No matter which of these options you appeal to, I would recommend that you hire the workers from the contractor. In certain cases, contractors may operate according to statutory rules to phase out the construction process and collect their payments once the work is completed. Such contractors are the established ones who have enough revenue and contacts in the market to take care of the work without disturbing you at every step of the process. You can also work in reverse and pay the contractor in advance to proceed with the construction process. In any case, the agreement is in writing and has legal force, provided the interests of both the contractor and the owner are protected by law. The contractor will then be responsible for dealing with all professionals when it comes to wiring, electrification, plumbing, etc. A good contractor would hire workers for the entire duration of the project, rather than every week or worse, every week new day. This can affect the homogeneity of the structure to be built. Labour Costs: The labour costs. At present, the average labour cost per day is 650 PKR, and a qualified bricklayer (also known as raajmistry) can be hired for between 1,000 PKR and 1,200 PKR per day. Please note that for obvious reasons, it is appropriate for the worker to deliver one month's work within 45 days. However, a good contractor (in some cases also the Raaj Ministry) will make sure that the construction process is completed on time will cost you too much extra. As the contractor knows the daily work capacity of the work, he ensures that he does not cheat in any way. In almost all cases, the contractors commit themselves to the client when the individual construction phases of the house, such as foundation work, are completed. If the contractor specifies 30 days for start-up work, he must deliver it within the specified time.

HIV infected children in Pakistan because of re used syringes

The Pakistani government has received international help after more than 700 people, most of them children, have been tested for HIV in the southern city of Rato Dero, Pakistan. It was assumed that the outbreak was spread by reused syringes that were mainly used by non-qualified practitioners. "As part of the key tasks, a WHO-led team will identify the factors behind the outbreak and propose control measures," said Pakistan's Health Minister Zafar Mirza. "They will provide technical expertise in HIV testing, pediatric HIV treatment and family counseling." Mirza said that the team that reached Rato Dero on May 31 would ensure that there is enough stock of diagnostic rapid tests and antiretroviral drugs for adults and children. They will also check the availability of disposable needles and syringes, as initial investigations of the outbreak indicate the use of repackaged syringes. By 31 May, check-ups in Rato Dero indicated that 728 people would have an HIV-positive test. Of these, five hundred and ninety were children, 70% of whom were aged between two and five, officials in the National AIDS Control Program in Pakistan said. It is believed that the incident is the world's first HIV outbreak, with the majority of those affected being children. 73 women were also tested positive for HIV. Abdul Baseer Khan Achakzai, manager of the National AIDS Control Program in Pakistan, according to him "Initial official investigations conducted by our organization in collaboration with provincial and federal health authorities indicate the reuse of infected syringes in the region and also for unscreened blood transfusions. [Other reasons] could be poor infection prevention and unprotected sex. " According to the Pakistan National AIDS Control Program, 1.65,000 people already live with HIV in Pakistan, but only around 25,000 are registered with national and regional HIV programs.
