Landmark Project: Floating Kitchen, KARACHI

Karachiites could soon dine in a ‘Floating Kitchen’

Staff Report

KARACHI: The construction work on the “Floating Kitchen” project, which will also be called “Majestic Ship”, is in full swing on the shore of Sea View in Defence Housing Authority.

It is officially learnt that the “Floating Kitchen” is envisaged to be the world’s first stationary ship that will look like a cruise ship on which international foods will be served. Hopefully, this landmark project will be completed by mid-2006.

Talking to Daily Times on Tuesday, Defence Housing Authority Development Director Col Asif Jamal said the construct work had been started four month ago and that the land required for the project had been reclaimed.

He said that a group of overseas Pakistani entrepreneurs, with a rejuvenated vision to promote Pakistan as an investment friendly country, had embarked upon the unique venture in the country, i.e. “Floating Kitchen”, a mega entertainment ship being built on the shores of Karachi with the help of the DHA.

The “Floating Kitchen” project is located near the Village Restaurant at the seashore.

The earth filling has been completed and iron pillars are being erected by the contractor. “Karachiites will soon have the luxury of dining in a ship without making a journey by sea, calling at various ports. If they want to have a feel of the splendor, grandeur majesty, décor and dignity of the legendary Titanic, that too without any fear of sinking, they can just board the ship to be known as ‘Floating Kitchen’,” said a spokesman for the Defence Housing Authority, Lieutenant Colonel (retd) Rafat Naqvi, while talking to Daily Times.

He said that as soon as people entered the ship, its ambience would take them to a new world of experience. Mouth-watering delicacies to be prepared by expert chefs would taste somewhat different, he added.

The spokesman said that the success of the “Floating Kitchen” would help trigger a domino effect, especially among overseas business entrepreneurs, who would take a fresh look at Pakistan as a land of opportunities while adding a new feather to the DHA’s cap.

A site engineer said it was a unique project in Pakistan and was also an old demand of the people for that kind of a project.

He said the “Floating Kitchen” would provide all kinds of foods and families would enjoy by visiting the “Majestic Ship”.

I can see the pictures. Its a nice project.

Btw, I like the idea of this project being built in DHA. A lot of projects are coming up in the DHA region of Karachi City. A stationary ship, with good lighting at night, would form a beautiful skyline once projects like creek city, creek towers, creek marina, etc. etc. are completed.
