Lahore will host the tallest building in Punjab -- Sirius Tower that will help attract foreign and domestic investment in the second most populous city of Pakistan.

By working on a Real Estate Investment Trust (Reit) or PPP model to attract foreign and domestic investment, he said Sirius can create new job opportunities and promote sustainable growth.

"Such mixed-use commercial buildings are not only beneficial for businesses, but also for every walk of life,” Janjua said on the sidelines of the International Property Show, which concluded in Dubai last week.
