Lahore Central Business District Development Authority (LCBDDA), also known as Central Business District Punjab (CBD Punjab), has got approval from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) for 750-foot building height in Lahore Prime.
LCBDDA CEO Imran Amin said getting the approval of an iconic height is a milestone and history-making achievement of the province of Punjab.
Lahore Prime comprises 12 mixed commercial plots and out of these, five plots were auctioned in September 2021 with the approval of 500-foot building height.
The CAA has conducted an advanced aeronautical study in collaboration with the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) and evaluated all possibilities and constraints were deeply researched and analysed after which it gave go-ahead for practical implementation of skyscrapers to be built in the CBD Punjab. The CAA has ensured the protocols of safe flight operations while giving the provision for 750-foot construction height, he added.
Amin said, “Approval of 750-foot building height is the epitome of grandeur in real estate and rather extraordinary in the construction sector. The CBD Punjab has come to another step closer to the dream of Prime Minister Imran Khan of giving Pakistan its first Business District.
I would like to show my profound gratitude to the management of the CAA and the PAF for providing their professional support and taking swift action on the request of the CBD Punjab for the 750-foot height provision.”
The provision of 750-foot building is a gateway to architectural masterpieces and iconic buildings.
The business community will avail all the pros of the extra height provision, like more sellable areas for commercial purposes, construction advancement and provision of the helipad.
