Instead of all these pipe dreams. Pakistan should priorities to make Gwadar port functional for regular shipping activities. In order the be able to do it, Gwadar need to be connected with rest of the country through roads and rail links so growing Pakistan export can take benefit of it. So Pakistan government should put 100% effort to complete M8 highway as well as railway connection to main lines. If local business houses and industries are not using Gwadar than how come China or Central Asian countries will use it. In the beginning only traffic from China, Afghanistan or CA will not be that much to make it economically viable. For that Pakistan originated/destine traffic is needed to make the economy of scale. But as usual Pakistani government of rent seeking mentality has outsourced to China to develop and make functional of Gwadar port and day out day in minsters, politicians, arm chair specialists are spewing hilarious pipe dreams instead of doing the basics.
What a nonsense post.

Do you think that we will see supertall and even megatall futuristic skyscrapers like in Dubai, lining the skyline of Gwadar?

Can Gwadar become a major port and a center for economic development? Could it become the next Dubai or Shenzhen?
I think we will see some skyscrapers, but nothing too big, I think it’ll be the same sizes like the ones that are being built in Karachi

Quite impossible, your airport authority will ruin all your skyscrapers just like our airport authority did in Mumbai, else Mumbai would have been having dozens of supertalls which all were reduced in height citing air traffic.

So for skyscrapers, a rich population and airport far from their location is required.
