New Laws Approved by LDA for Construction of High-Rises (Latest Updates):
Keeping in view the insatiable demand for housing in Lahore against the lack of availability of land, serious measures are now being taken to address the pertaining issues. When it comes to high-rise developments in the city, the LDA has been easing its regulations in different ways for the past few years.
The city’s vertical growth paired with the development of sustainable infrastructure is what the concerned authorities should be focusing on to sustainably manage the constantly increasing urban population. According to a recent news report, the LDA has proposed a draft based on the new building regulations that contain ‘free height’ authorisation.
Once implemented, the new bylaws would allow the property developers to construct multistorey buildings as high as 300 feet on 60-feet or wider roads across the city. These regulations will not only promote the high-rise culture in Lahore but also help real estate construction and development companies to strengthen their businesses as most of them are proposing and promoting multistorey complexes and structures as their flagship projects.
What a nice article. It keeps me reading more and more!
Thank you for the update!
It would be great but LDA should also work hard for illegal construction.
