Why not just Pakistanis?

Phase VIII is also located on the DHA peninsula. The location however it is pointed on that map is very misleading because the Creek Marina site has already been allocated and I have observed it myself many times. Also, the location that map is leading to may be empty but I dont think anybody would like their 6 star luxury apartments to be walking distance from oil refineries.

Heres another map from the creek city website to clear the location issue:

Dude, I have no intention of creating any rifts by just mentioning that I am a Karachiite. I dont think that should lead you to question my patriotism in any way. If somebody who doesnt live somewhere is saying something about a place he doesnt know of, they should better let somebody more knowledgeable take over and handle it instead of being stubborn and bullheaded about it.

As far as your childish finger pointing goes, this is the last I am going to speak on this immature new controversy.

If Swervuet says that hes from Karachi, thats all good. Cause if hes from Karachi, then heck hes from Karachi, he can't be from Multan or Peshwar .. Its not rocket science people.

Plus, Swervuet knows Karachi inside out, and hes also observed the DHA site in person, so I think hes more reliable, and more knowledgable when it comes to Karachi.

If he says hes from Karachi, that has nothing to do with Karachi - Lahore, all hes sayin' is that hes from Karachi, and being from there, he'd know the place better.

I think Pakboy misunderstood Swervuet.

well that map is around 3 years old and creek marina was just launched today. plans can get changed, plus another thing is the renders on creekmarina show that there will be 8 towers all togher while the creek city map shows that there are 11 towers, so it should be quite clear now that the masterplan has changed.

here is the link for the site plan once again

it looks nothing like the one on the creek city map.

ok dude foget that and answer this question.

do you know more about creek marina then the developer of creek marina?

i dont think so, and mate im just refering to what the website is saying. You are not part of the DHA so i think you should stop thinking you know everything cos you dont. the facts are all on www.creekmarina.com, and lets go by what they say, no wat some person from karachi says.

Pakboy,

If you check post number 28. Swervuet posted a map, which was on Creek City's original website, and if you scroll to the right due to the size of the image, you'd see that Creek Marina is at a very different location as to what Creek Marina developers have shown on there website. It could be a wrong map.

As far as I remember, the area where Creek Marina is shown on the map, is an area where oil refineries are located.

oh mah guru

I have better things to do than waste time on this stupid argument. But that map in the brochure is ROUGHLY DRAWN. If you look at the Zulfiqar street on the brochure map and compare it with the Zulfiqar St. on the Creek City diagram, I am sure things will start looking a little clearer in the attic.
Of course the diagram has a 11 towers instead of the current 8, and sure master plans do change, but they dont change enough to transport the location of a project across a mile wide creek and into an industrial area!

So fellow forumers, you are free to believe whoever you want, but please. Be wise.

All that is as yet unreclaimed marsh land and for this project to complete within the stipulated 3 years, that marsh should have been reclaimed by now. But, it is still all marsh as of August 15th, 2005.

There's no point in arguing over who's right or who's wrong.

If you go to www.creekmarina.com and look at the bottom, it clearly says Phase VIII, DHA Karachi, Pakistan ! So if DHA is building it, its gotta be on DHA land, and we all know where that is. So I guess Swerveut is correct.
