City Centre is the tallest building ever built in Bangladesh. It is at the heart of Motijheel, in the commercial centre of Dhaka and is in close proximity to the city's Zero Point. Topped out, this office complex is expected to serve as a "city within a city" and will offer several features, more than any other building in Dhaka.[2]

Facilities[edit]

City Centre Bangladesh is the first building in Bangladesh to offer multistory car parking. Considering the acute shortage of parking space in the city, the building will offer ten floors exclusively for parking. It is earthquake resistant and fully equipped with fire fighting equipment. It is the first building in Bangladesh to have considered natural disasters as an issue in construction.

Other features of City Centre include room for a small indoor convention centre and recreational area, as well as a wide atrium filled with greenery. The building is constructed for commercial use but is open to the public. It is made with the public in mind. For example, City Centre features 'Glasshouse', a premier restaurant open to the city.

City Centre Bangladesh has 37 floors with ten devoted to parking.

Location[edit]

City Centre will be an ideal corporate destination for the employer and the employee. City Centre has been placed at a spot where it is easy for financial institutions to access banking services. Bangladesh Bank is the most significant financial institution in the country, and its proximity to City Centre highlights the convenience for the everyday office worker.[3]
