Construction of Kathmandu View Tower

Posted by Anup Baral | November 11, 2016 :The Kathmandu Metropolitan City has said that construction of the “tallest building” in the country at Old Bus Park in the Capital is set to start from Sunday. But it is not yet clear whether the building will undergo major design changes or will be shorter than what was earlier planned. The 29-storey Kathmandu View Tower is said to be the tallest building in Nepal once completed, but due to changes in regulations for building construction after the earthquake last year mean that the original approved design violates the new rule. The foundation stone for the building was laid in November last year. Settlement Development, Urban Planning and Building Construction Criteria 2015 set by the government has changed provisions for minimum setback area, ground coverage and floor area ratio for high-rise buildings.
