Blue World City, Islamabad is located adjacent to the proposed Rawalpindi Ring Road and offers a lot of commercial opportunities. Here’s all you need to know about the project and what it has to offer.
About Blue World City
Also known as the first Pak-China Friendly City, the project is a collaboration between Blue Group of Companies (BGC) and Shan Jian Municipal Engineering, a Chinese investment firm. The joint venture is aimed at taking Pak-China collaboration and friendship to the next level, especially post-CPEC. The society aims to offer a modern twist to comfortable living with a range of facilities and amenities of international standards.
The vision behind this city is to introduce it and cement its position as the new commercial hub of Pakistan, featuring wholesale and retail markets for Pakistani as well as Chinese businesspersons. The society’s location is nothing less than ideal, boasting proximity to the M2-Motorway (CPEC Route) and the New Islamabad International Airport.

Location of Blue World City
Blue World City, Islamabad, is located on Chakri Road near Chakri Interchange on the Lahore Islamabad M-2 Motorway, intersecting Rawalpindi Ring Road at the other end, based on the proposed plans. This location makes the project perfectly accessible from the twin cities of Islamabad and Rawalpindi and will make it further convenient for about 20 million Chinese citizens planning to arrive in Pakistan in connection with various CPEC-related ventures.
Facilities and Amenities at Blue World City
A state-of-the-art city is being built with the help of Chinese engineers and presents a near-perfect opportunity for people who want to live in a community that features all the necessities as well as luxuries of life within its walls. Some of the most prominent features of Blue World City, Islamabad, are:
Blue World City is a completely gated and secure community with 24/7 CCTV surveillance to ensure the safety of residents. The housing development will also have a police station within its premises.
With carpeted road networks of 40, 60, 80, 100 and 120 feet and easy access to public transportation, along with proximity to the CPEC route, the society has everything that’s needed to appeal to residential property seekers as well as commercial buyers.
Supply of Utilities
High-quality underground cabling and plumbing for electricity, gas, water supply, and telephone connections will be used to supply necessary utilities to every home in the development. To ensure continuous supply, the society will also have its own power plant with backup generators and a water filtration plant. An upgraded sewage system will keep the waste flowing towards the sewerage treatment plant located inside the city’s walls.
Schools, Hospitals and Mosques
The Forces School and College System and the Forces Cadet College Rawalpindi will be opening up their branches within the community once the development has been completed. A 40-bed hospital is also approved in the plans for Blue World City. The Jamia Masjid being built here will be a replica of the Blue Mosque in Istanbul, while smaller mosques will be developed in individual sectors.
Blue World City will also be home to Pakistan’s first international standard themed waterpark, featuring a range of different rides, a wave pool, water surfing, a volcanic waterfall, and a separate play area for kids. Other entertainment options include a 3D cinema, a gym with the latest equipment, a spa with both warm and freshwater pools, a safari zoo, and an adventure club with horse riding, polo, dirt bikes, and desert safari being some of the available thrills. An Oxygen park and lake are also planned within the development as additional leisure activities.
Dedicated Commercial District
The project is scheduled to have a dedicated commercial bay with shopping malls as well as commercial offices for sale in high-rise buildings. A food street will also be constructed in the business bay area where top-quality restaurants will welcome residents and visitors alike. The commercial district will mainly benefit from the development’s strategic location, and business will immediately boom once a number of ongoing projects are completed in its surroundings.
Progress and Development Work
The project is being developed at a rapid pace, with plots earmarked and roads already being laid out throughout the area. The main gate of the society is nearing completion. Also, the project offers special discounts to government servants.
Types of Properties
Blue World City, Islamabad, features residential and commercial plots as well as land for the construction of farmhouses. The business bay will be established in a dedicated area where commercial buildings and the proposed food street will be developed.
While most of the offices, shops, and stores will become available once the commercial district has been entirely built, commercial plots of 5 marla and 8 marla are available for people to start a new venture in Blue World City or grow their existing business.
