I am doing Ms.c in geology from university of Karachi,
I want to ask that , it will be secure from the movements of plates ?
what will be the effect of tectonic setting in future ?

Construction is soon to start on Aedas’ new landmark scheme in Mai Kolachi, Pakistan 

Plans for a landmark waterside development at Mai Kolachi adjacent to the Port of Karachi in Pakistan have been received and are currently being evaluated following the implementation of Aedas’ international competition-winning design for a mixed-use scheme. Endorsed in 2007 by the Prime Minister of Pakistan, the development will command an iconic presence and provide a recognisable beacon to Pakistan’s principal city of Karachi and the country’s largest sea port.

The scheme which includes five high rise towers focuses around the centrepiece; a 78-storey fully glazed tower. The tower comprises 162,000sq m. of office space crowned with a 250-bed six-star luxury hotel with additional serviced apartments. The hotel bedrooms are cleverly arranged around an 85m-high atrium to maximise the views over the Arabian Sea. Advanced digital modelling and sustainable design practices have responded to ecological challenges, drastically reducing the building’s carbon footprint and harnessing the potential of natural resources.

Designed for the Karachi Port Trust, the development will help satisfy an international and domestic demand for institutionally acceptable ‘British Council for Offices (BCO)’ standard space. It will also help satisfy a significant shortage of luxury hotel accommodation and high end residential property. Work is set to begin this spring.
