The Model













The 'Helipad' has been removed from the final design and it is replaced by a resturaunt instead. They mentioned that due to unsuitable wind conditions, the helipad and helicopter landing was considered unfreasible


On the left side is Jinnah Avenue and right side is Nazim-ud-din Road. A large area has been used for landscraping.

some of the projects look decent, but most of them are mediocre or seem to be recreations of what exists in other parts of Asia. quite disappointing.

If you are looking at new concepts of living,Creek Towers is just the place. These spectacular high rise waterfront towers directly overlook the waters of Gizri Creek.The dynamic two building complex, offers unparalleled views of the Arabian Sea, Karachi Creek and Mangroues,and the DHA golf course. Being part of Creek Towers living means more than just living in a dream home perched high. It establishes residents as a member of a community of unparalleled distinction, in the most prestigious part of Karachi

A full-facility, international level stadium with an open air design, with a modern sports complex and hostel facility is planed for use of the DHA schools and Creek City residents.This stadium would provide the venue to attract major sporting events. There would be an Olympic sized pool along with basket ball, tennis and volley ball courts outside the athleletic track venue. Right next to the exclusive Creek Marina will be the talk of the town. A five acre international standard town club that will provide seven star facilities to its members. The DHA Country and Ggolf Club and the Marina Club will become a part of the town club. The Raffles Group of Singapore has entered into a joint venture with DHA, meinhardt to develop it as part of their international chain of hotels and recreational clubs.

The Defence Authority Country & Golf Club is laid out on an area of 130 Acres. It has 18 holes and its par value is 72 strokes. Total yardage of the course is 6693 yards. The course was laid out by Mr. Donald Steel, a well known British golf course architect. It was developed in two phases. First 9 holes were opened to public on 28 April 1997 in Phase-I. Back 9 holes were developed in Phase-II and were inaugurated on 30 August 1998. The facilities available at that time were, a snack bar, practice range and the course itself. Later,an administration block and club house were constructed to match it with other golf courses in the country. Defence Authority Country & Golf Club is affiliated with Pakistan Golf Federation and Sindh Golf Association. The Club holds major tournaments whenever deputed by various golf organizations.The DHA Marina Club is planned to shif to a new site over-looking the blue waters of Korangi Creek right in the picturesque setting of the Creek City. This club would be providing the facilities of Diving, Fishing, Water Skiing, Rowing, Sailing, Yachting, Canoeing, Wind Surfing and Para Sailing etc. There is a plan for holding Sailing Courses and Championships.
