Great design, although I wish they would have built it closer to the few existing highrises alreadt present. It seems like it a good distance from Islamabads downtown.

Dont underestimate it! Its in the blue area extension. Once more construction starts in the ext. this would turn out to be the newer Downtown.

Cool marketing ad, at first I thought that you had run out of things to post but now I get it, cool! Good for Pakistan. The design is great. Those are some nice green hills around Islamabad.

'Time ripe to invest in Pak'

President General Pervez Musharraf on Thursday said Pakistan provides an ideal environment for investment and reiterated that it would be sustained to alleviate poverty through greater economic activity."It is the right time to invest in Pakistan," Musharraf said after performing the groundbreaking of Pakistan's first seven-star US$ 350 million hotel-cum-residential project - "The Centaurus."

The 3-year project is being executed by the Pakistan Gulf Construction Pvt Ltd (PGCL) Company at the cost of Rs6.6 billion, using the services of Messrs Atkins known in the construction world for its Burj-al-Arab project in Dubai. The Centaurus, a project of Al-Tamimi Group of Saudi Arabia and Sardar Group of Companies, will have, besides a 37-storey deluxe hotel, two 21- storey residential towers, a 25-storey corporate office complex, and a 5-storey shopping mall with parking for more than 2,000 vehicles.

Inviting the investors from across the world, Musharraf said Pakistan is pursuing a liberal foreign exchange regime with no limitation on remittances and provides a level playing field for foreign and local investors. He said, "We have opened all sectors of economy for investment and the scourge of red-tapism and bureaucratic delays are being done away with."

The President warned that he would not tolerate any bottlenecks in the way of investment."If there is any bottleneck, I will come to the help of the investor," he said. The President said greater investment in the country was also helping the country fight extremism and terrorism as these stem from poverty, lack of education and economic opportunities."We are grateful to the Al-Tamimi group which is helping us fight extremism in this way," he added.

President Musharraf said the policies of de-regulation; liberalization and privatisation have helped bring in more foreign direct investment. Interior Minister Aftab Ahmed Sherpao said the government has undertaken several projects in the federal capital and in three years time, 1000 five-star hotel rooms will be available. He said a number of budget hotels to cater to all segments of society would be built besides adding a series of recreational centres for the people.

CEO of PGCL Sardar Tanveer Ilyas said the structure complies with all the building codes of the CDA and can easily sustain an earthquake of 9.5 Richter scale. He appreciated President Musharraf's policies and vision that encouraged him to bring in the heavy investment and said the project will be an icon of Pakistan across the world."The project will provide thousands of direct and indirect jobs to both skilled and unskilled manpower,' he added.

President AJK Sardar Zulqurnain, Population and Welfare Minister Chaudhry Shahbaz Hussain and Chairman CDA Kamran Lashari also attended the ceremony.
