Concept proposals for a 3 million sq ft (278,700 sq m) mixed-use development in central Islamabad have been unveiled by Atkins. The centrepiece of the mixed-use scheme, commissioned by Pak Gulf Ltd will include the country’s tallest building, a 30-storey, 350-bedroom world-class hotel topped by a panoramic restaurant capturing views of both the city and the mountainous skyline above it. The design also incorporates a 300,000 sq ft (27,870 sq m) shopping mall, 250,000 sq ft (23,225 sq m) of offices and more than 300 apartments. The project is expected to take three years to complete, with the next stage seeing Atkins’ team working on the schematic and detailed design to enable the construction process to start in 2006.
