The Hilton Hotel was also a part of the Portomaso Development project adding another feature to this area. The Portomaso Business Tower is also the headquarters of many established and emerging industries like gaming, finance, legal, and IT. This has been possible because of the skilled workforce of the country and the tax incentives of the government which the business gets. The building is in huge demand for office space but due to limited space, many organizations are shifting to other buildings close to this area.
