TALLER THAN THE REST: The construction of tower will start by July is likely to be ready in the next three years.

Hyderabad: The historic Charminar might soon lose its status as Hyderabad's most famous structure.

The state Industrial Infrastructure Corporation has given the final nod to the city's skyscraper zone, and a landmark building, to be located in a 100-acre Business District in Manchirevula near Hyderabad.

"In the area that the building is coming up, the minimum height of a building should be 30-storeys. The building that we are making will be 100-plus storeyed building surrounded by a series of 10-12 30-storeyed towers. It will be a compact business district like Manhattan or Nariman point," said APIIC Vice-Chairman, B PAcharya.

The proposed Trade Tower will house corporates, hotels and other establishments. 22 international players participated in the recently-concluded bidding process.

"We have kept very stiff pre-qualification norms and 10 were finally selected in the pre-qualification round. Ultimately two parties have responded and we are going to finalise them shortly - one from Israel, one from India," said Acharya.

The APIIC had initially proposed to build 60-floor twin towers. Teams were sent to study the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Sears Towers in Chicago and high-rise buildings in Dubai.

Based on their reports, a single trade tower was approved. At present, the 16-storey Babu Khan Estate, built in 1987, is the tallest commercial building in Hyderabad followed by the 13-storeyed Haj House.

Since the proposed trade tower will be located in the skyscraper zone, getting clearances from the municipal and fire services authorities will be just a formality.

According to the APIIC, the construction of the trade tower will start by July this year and it is likely to be ready in the next three years.

Now Hyderabad will soon house the tallest building in the country. A hundred storey trade tower surrounded by 10 to 12 rows of over 30-floor buildings, reports CNBC-TV18.

This will be the main feature of the 100-acre business district which will be constructed near Hyderabad.

After almost a year of discussion, the Andhra Pradesh Industrial Infrastructure Corporation has given the final nod for the trade tower. The multi-crore project will begin latest by June and it is likely to be ready in the next three years.
