Emaar, a Dubai based real estate developer, is operating in different regions to extend its development expertise. Pakistan is among the countries benefiting from the ideas of Emaar. It is believed that Emaar Pakistan, a subsidiary of Emaar Properties PJSC, is among the pioneer developers to have introduced the idea of master planned communities in Pakistan. The lifestyle concepts of Emaar Pakistan include addition of schools, shopping malls, health centre, and dining and entertainments spots in a community. As of 2012, two of Emaar’s projects, namely Canyon Views Islamabad and Crescent Bay Karachi are underway, attracting both buyers and investors alike.
For the capital, Emaar has planned a housing society that is known as Canyon Views. The society is located between Rawalpindi and Islamabad and offers a lifestyle that goes best with the concepts of posh living. The residents of Canyon View will have access to the finest leisure and entertainment facilities and will enjoy living in beautifully designed houses and natural vistas. Some salient features of Canyon Views Islamabad include landscaped open spaces and many parks, gated and guarded premises, maintenance facility, townhouses and villas with Spanish and Portuguese styled rooftops and granite flooring, separate laundry and maid’s room for every residential unit, a fully facilitated community club and high speed internet, television and voice communication technology.
Karachi gets the best of Emaar Pakistan in the form of Crescent Bay, as the community becomes the first development in Pakistan built around the manmade bays. Emaar is bringing Dubai’s iconic beachfront lifestyle to Pakistan and giving the upper and elite class in Pakistan a chance to experience an exotic beachfront life in DHA Phase VIII Karachi. The 3 manmade bays are encircled by crescent shaped developments, known as Crescent Bay 1, Crescent Bay 2 and Crescent Bay 3, and cover 2 kilometre long seafront. High-rise developments of Crescent Bay will offer apartments, hotels, malls, leisure and recreation centres, designer shops, salons and spas and eateries. Buyers and investors are anxious to claim their space in Crescent Bay.
