This iconic building is going to be among the taller buildings of Islamabad. The tower will house various directorates and branches of CAA as well as airline corporate offices, airline booking centre, business center, seminars and conference halls, media centers, financial institutes and banks, recreational facilities including Aviation Science Museum, Art Gallery, Health Center, Indoor sports facilities, baby day care centers, food courts.
