The building plans of seven commercial buildings were put forward for approval in the meeting.

Likewise, a building plan for Plot No 1 in the Blue Area adjoining Sector F-9 and G-9 was approved in the meeting along with the approval of the construction plan of Plot No. 6-C in Sector F-10 Markaz.

On the other hand, the approval of the design of Plot No. 15 in the Blue Area neighbouring Sector G-9 was postponed due to the absence of the architect.

Earlier, CDA had approved the first 36-storey highest residential building design of its kind in Pakistan. It also comprised five multi-story buildings designed for construction.

The 36-storey tallest residential building will be built in the F-10 Markaz of Islamabad city, of which 70% of the area will be kept green.

However, the developer of the 36-storey building will have to take permission from the Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority to start the construction work on the project.
