The Qatari investor wasn't too reliable. So basically, the PTC project is being re-advertised, and due to massive Arab and domestic investment into real estate I'm sure they'd stumble across another investor to build the tower.

Creek Marina will be built beside the under construction Karachi Creek City, which itself will house around 30 highrises. And I believe construction work on Creek Marina would begin soon, the completion deadline for the project is 2008.

PTC is a good project, and hopefully they'll come across a 'reliable' investor.

Creek Marina project was launched yesterday, and is open for booking. It looks good. I'll call them up and get more info on the project by tomorrow.

are you sure thats the location, the webiste suggests its a different project to the creek city one, in its location map it shows that its on the island infront of creek city.

maybe they changed the location or theres 2 creek marinas.

The location swervuet pointed out is accurate. On the original Creek City website, they mentioned Creek Marina project, and the location was of the project was given as swervuet has pointed out.

The DHA plans to develop that whole waterfront area in 7 years time.

Raffles Town Club is opening up in Karachi as well. So it won't be just Singapore.

The club looks very 'English'

theres no such map on any creek city website. The area your map points to isnt even under DHA jurisdiction!
