Those of you who are familiar with the project already know just what kind of an architectural marvel the Centaurus Towers Islamabad is. Although the building is still under construction but the experts believe once it’s finished, it will be the most high profile project in the history of Pakistan real estate. The gigantic structure is designed to stand alongside three towers and will be accompanied by a magnificent shopping mall upon its completion. Like many other modern structures erected in Karachi, Islamabad and Lahore, among other cities of Pakistan, the Centaurus Towers Islamabad will be mixed purpose buildings.
The design of the building may seem outrageous to some but it is just as practical as the architectural design of any other building. WS Atkins, which is a renowned international company, has designed the structure which, upon its completion, will tower over the nearby structures. In case you have not heard of WS Atkins, it is the same company, which designed the world famous Burj Al Arab, as well as the honour of designing the extension of Masjid al-Haram. Like almost all of their other structures, Centaurus Towers Islamabad is a mega project which is scheduled to be completed by 2014.
The highest tower of this multi purpose building will house a total of forty one floors, which is surely good enough to get it a good ranking amongst some of the tallest structures in Pakistan. Centaurus Towers, upon completion, will be three buildings comprising of corporate offices, state of the art apartments and a five star hotel. All three of the towers will be connected via a shopping mall that will stretch the length of all three towers. The total estimated cost of the project is $350 million.
