Btw the mosque in this project is a floating mosque like in Malaysia.

Malik Riaz is the CEO of Bahria Developers, when the sales of phase 5 & 6 started, he collected over 800m USD in the first five hours.

After this project has been completed and sold he will surely have alot more money. He has plans for Mega developments in Lahore Bahria Town, Bahria Town in Karachi, Sialkot & Gujranwala ,malls in Lahore and highrises in Blue Area Islamabad and LRR in Lahore..

Waqas,

Where exactly is the 'Lake City' project being developed in Lahore ? It sounds like a huge project as well.

Poverty has dropped by 10% last year. Democracy has been restored, we have an elected Prime Minister, Local Body elections are coming up, and in 2007 the general elections. The media is free in Pakistan, we have a media revolution in the country, so many channels, and much more. Pakistan was voted as the most media free nation in South Asia by BBC.

But, true democracy will only be restored after 2007 general elections, and we're heading towards it.

Nightsky,

According to the latest reports by the Press, the Port Tower contract is in final stages. The agreements are being signed. Plus, from people that live in Karachi, I've heard that they are clearing up the site for the Port Tower.

Bahria town is on a high, they have many developments coming.

Bahria Lake City built near the wagah border in lahore, will be made on the lines of venice.

Bahria Margalla City margalla is the name of some hills in islamabad and they will be making a city on the hill, it would most probly be something like monte carlo.

Bahria Mega Mall the largest shopping mall in pakistan, im not sure but some say largest in asia. it would be made on 500 kanals (1 kanal= 500 sq. yards) mall located in lahore.

they also have a high rise building planned for karachi and towns in karachi, sialkot, gurjrawala and new murree. they have many other proposed projects but malik riaz is tight liped about them.

Pakboy,

Can you please try and find more information on the Karachi highrise ? As it is part of the $11bn development plan by Bahria Group.

no. bahar means water in arabic yes, but its used by the pakistan navy.
bahria town was built long time ago by the pakistan navy to give homes to the people in the navy and the navy use the name bahria, but its CEO, malik riaz brought all 100% shares and made the town public for everyone and has expanded it and is now making many huge projects.



ALSO THERE HAS BEEN ANOTHER BIG PROJECT LAUCHES IN LAHORE.
AS EVERYONE KNOWS CHIENSE PRESIDANT IS IN PAKISTAN THESE DAYS, AND HE HAS LAUCHED SUKH CHAYN GARDENS, A HOUSING PROJECT IN LAHORE, IT IS CHINAS BIGGEST INVETSMENT IN PAKISTAN.

How many of you from Pakistan knew about Bahria group, prior to this mega announcement? He's said to the largest developer in your country, but No International business newspaper has covered him before! Honestly, yahoo has a good average of local asian business, but even then, I haven't read anything about him. I do suspect as several pakistani columnists have pointed out: That, this guy is enjoying the largesse given to him by his ex-masters, i.e the Pakistani military. Is he trustable in your opinion? I am suspecting, because how can anyone raise 800 million dollars from individual investors in a spate of few hours, for projects yet to be built?

this guy is damm trustable, i know all the histroy of bahria town. and yes he has been covered in international newspapers, he has come in newspapers in the gulf. and recently hes been in all papers in malaysia, you can see in the first post on second page and see this http://www.pakrealestateonline.com/a...1112970661.jpg there are shots of the newspapers.

and he didnt raise 800 million dollars who ever said that, he got 500 million dollars in just 5 hours and if you were there outside there office you would have belived it. it happens always with him, when ever a project goes on sale, people flood to his office.

i saw it on the news and there was a stampede of people outside outside the bahria office when the plots went on sale.

he has no connection with the pakistan mililtary, infact hes had alot of problems with them from land mafias.
