Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has approved a proposal to build a 142-storey ‘Iconic Tower’ in Purbachal near the capital city Dhaka, Finance Minister AMA Muhith said.
The minister made the statement while talking to the Dhaka Tribune at his secretariat office on Tuesday.
Burj Khalifa, standing at over 828 metres and more than 160 stories, is the tallest building in the world.
With the construction of the Iconic Tower, Bangladesh will have the tallest building in South Asia.
“Number 71 will appear on both the sides of the iconic tower.”
Muhith said the government was scheduled to sign the deal on May 12 but it was postponed as some formalities related to the tower could not be completed on time.
