Ocean Tower, formerly known as Sofitel Hotel Plaza or The Mall, is a building in Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan.

Structural information[edit]

Ocean Tower is a 120-metre-high (393 ft) skyscraper in Karachi. The project has its own 5-megawatt powerhouse, as compared with the 2 MW- and 1.2 MW-capacity powerhouses of MCB Tower and the Arif Habib Building respectively, and it does not rely on KESC for power. The tower uses state-of-the-art technology for monitoring heat and smoke. It has nine passenger lifts and five cargo lifts.[2]
