Dhaka Tower

Bangladesh’s economy is one of the fastest growing in the world. Fifty years after independence, Bangladesh is the second largest economy in South Asia. In the wake of this rapid economic growth, Bangladesh’s capital is changing equally quickly. Dhaka Tower, a 150-meter-tall, 180,000-square-meter office high-rise, is the first landmark building of a new commercial district located at the edge of Tejgaon. Once a center of industrial activity in the city, Tejgaon is now home to some of the leading local and multinational corporations.
