96-storey iconic tower to be among 41 skyscrapers
To cater to the growing demand for business spaces, a sprawling comprehensive commercial township is going to be developed in Purbachal new city area spending $8 billion.
According to sources at Rajdhani Unnayan Kartripakkha (Rajuk) and the developer company, the commercial township named ‘Central Business District’ (CBD) will be constructed on over 100 acres of land in the next seven years.
It will have a total of 41 skyscrapers, including a 465-metre tall 96-storey iconic Legacy Tower, 71-storey Liberty Tower and 52-storey Language Tower to accommodate business houses in a total space of about 38.441 million square feet (sft).
Of the other 38 skyscrapers, each will have a height equivalent to a 40-storey building, the sources said, adding that a large convention centre was also included in the development plan.
“We’ve already submitted our plan to Rajuk for its approval. Once approved, we’ll move to commence development work on the CBD by March 2020,” Syed Qamrul Islam, Chief Operating Officer and Director (Operations) of Consortium of PowerPac Holdings and Kajima Corporation, the developer of the area, told UNB.
