Karachi the city of lights, and the beauty of architecture. There are many buildings that were built during the ruling of British era, which are based on historical architecture. But today I’m going to show you the buildings of modern architecture of Karachi.
It’s our dream to visit New York, Dubai, London, and many others developed cities, because of their tallest buildings, shopping mall, luxuries, and so many other things, but now our Karachi is in developing phase, and many buildings with modern architecture are under construction, while few have been completed including shopping malls, hotels, business sectors, resorts, etc. And when the night falls they look damn beautiful because of their amazing architecture and LED lights.
Karachi City of Lights
Well, here I’m sharing the pictures of Karachi with modern architecture.
UBL Tower Karachi
One of the tallest and newly added head office at I.I. Chundrigar Road is UBL Tower or UBL Head Office. This modern building is a new skyscraper with 22 storeys with a glass structure, and the LED lights make its look flawless in the night.
Centre Point Karachi
Another one with modern architecture located at Baloch Colony Road, with 28 storey business building. This tallest building also having LED lights as UBL Tower.
Neuplex The Place
The Place is a shopping mall along with cinema and food court, located at Khayaban-e-Shaheen. Although it is not the tallest building but its modern architecture is simply loved.
PC Hotel Karachi
PC Hotel is one the 5-star hotel located at Dr Ziauddin Ahmed Road. Its a 10 storey hotel with 290 rooms. The shining and lightening words “PC” at the upper side of the hotel makes its look perfect.
Movenpick Hotel is also one of the 5-star hotel located at Club Road of the city. Its a 9 storey hotel with 407 rooms. Its unique architecture and written “Movenpick” at the top of the hotel makes it looks more beautiful.
Ocean Tower is one of the beautiful and the modern architect building of the city, located at Khayaban-e-Iqbal. It is 30 story building and consists of a shopping mall, cinema, food court, restaurants, and offices of different companies, brands, and others. At night, the lighting of the mall along with nearer side trees makes it look awesome.
HBL Plaza Karachi
It is the head office of Habib Bank Ltd. (HBL); commonly known as Habib Bank Plaza, located at I.I Chundrigar Road. It is 22 story building, and once was the tallest building of not only Pakistan but also entire South Asia, and remained the tallest in Pakistan till 4 decades. Its cylindrical shape makes it look unique than others, while at night time lights on the building enhance its beauty.
It is the head office of Muslim Commercial Bank (MCB), located at I.I Chundrigar Road. It is 29 story building, and once was the tallest building of Pakistan after breaking the record of HBL. But still, it is the 6th tallest of the city, but unfortunately, with no renovation, it looks dull in the night instead of looking gorgeous as others in the night. Yet, its architecture is ravishing.
These are very few pictures of our beloved city Karachi with modern architecture at night time. Indeed that day is no far when we will feel proud on our city, and can proudly compare with any of the developed city of the world, and soon a time will come when the curse of load shedding will be removed permanently not only from our city but also from our loving country Pakistan.
