BTW, 1,000 is a LOT of people to be employed by just 1 hotel!

Read the little quip in the bottom right corner.. "This advertisement appears as a matter of record only." Funny enough it's right below the ad of their legal counsel.

The Avari hotel site is located at Islamabad's sector G-6 (Melody Market), adjacent to the British Council offices. Development work is fully underway for a high rise tower.

The Avari group had purchased this property a couple of years back, I think in 2005. An incomplete, unfinished low rise building existed there which they had started to complete and finish in 2006. Then there was a complete stall in development works for several months, maybe a year, after which they demolished that building. Now for the last few months work is in full swing for a new high rise 5-star Avari hotel (on the same plot located at Sector G-6 Melody Market, Islamabad - adj. to British Council offices)
