Karachi Beach Resort, $200m, 2008.

Karachi Beach Resort

Opening: 2008
Website: http://www.karachi-beach.com

A spectacular $200-million development is planned to open in 2008 on the Karachi seafront in the Sindh State of Pakistan.

Karachi Beach Resort is a 100-acre family theme park resort featuring a host of exciting attractions never before seen in the country.

There will be 7 entertainment zones and 3 hotels with restaurants, cafes, shops and hundreds of things to see and do

- all looking to host over 3-million visitors a year.

Destined to become Pakistan’s premiere destination, Karachi Beach Resort will employ over 2,000 people and make a significant contribution to the city’s economy and international appeal.

The Concept

It has been especially designed to reflect the fascinating heritage of Pakistan using its links with the sea as its over-riding theme.

Giant sea-shells and a large-scale replica of the K2 mountain will house rides through the country’s history and achievements; thrilling amusement and water attractions are features of the “Monsoon” zone; and daily festivals will take place on “The Field of Dreams”.

These are just a few of the delights awaiting you at Karachi Beach Resort.

The Location

Karachi Beach Resort is to be built at Bagh-ibne-Qasim in the Clifton area of Karachi.

This prime seafront site extends to 100-acres and will remain in the ownership of the City District Government.

The Lady Lloyd Pier, a famous landmark, is to be refurbished and extended as part of the Karachi Beach scheme.

MASTERPLAN

I guess the company building would purchase extra land, incase they need to expand in the future. If they haven't thought of it, I think they should. Best thing about the project is that its on Karachi's waterfront, overlooking the Arabian Sea. Would love to see the sunset over the Arabian Sea in the evening !

The boat hotel concept representing the sails of a boat is kind of creative. But, the K2 (the world's second highest peak in Himalayan Region) is my all time fav. Just like Malec said, we need better renders!

Btw, Did anyone notice the 'Gateway to Pakistan' ? Its a crescent and star.
