Pakistan to get world's tallest tower in $45 billion deal

Could Karachi become the next Abu Dhabi?

That's what investors are envisioning with a $45 billion mega deal that will fund construction of several massive developments in the Pakistani city, including a mixed-use tower that they say will dwarf the 2,722-foot-tall Burj Khalifa.

The scheme, which is financially backed, in part, by Pakistani real estate billionaire Malik Riaz Hussain and Abu Dhabi Group, also includes construction of replicas of the Seven Wonders Of The World and four different cities: a sports city, international city, medical city, and education city.
