Rawalpindi Cinepax

Article from back in October 2007:

The five-screen Cinepax multiplex was designed by Canadian architects in accordance with global standards and will be a far cry from the ageing theatres that screen films from Lollywood - Pakistan's movie industry - for ever-shrinking audiences.

When Cinepax opens, local movie-lovers will be able to watch some of the biggest international hits of the past few months, including "Transformers" and "Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix".

The company behind the multiplex, also named Cinepax, plans to build complexes soon in Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Faisalabad, Gujranwala, Multan and Hyderabad to develop some 120 screens in five years at a total cost of USD 30 million.

The cost of a ticket at the multiplex will be Rs 200 and tickets can be booked through the internet, telephone and SMS. The theatre will screen Hollywood films within a month of their international release, said Cinepax CEO Arif Baigmohammed.

Dany Sidhwa, Cinepax's chief operating officer, said the worldwide standard for estimating market need was an average population of 54,000 people for every cinema screen but the figure for Pakistan was as high as 285,000 people per screen.

Cool facts!

As for Cinepax, that's really good news, nice to see that you can buy tickets electronically too. And does anyone have an idea if that cost is JUST for the equipment or the whole cinema?

Gwadar Deep Sea Port



Gwadar is located on the southwestern coast of Pakistan, close to the important Straits of Hormuz, through which more than 13 million bbd of oil passes. It is strategically located between three increasingly important regions of the world: the oil-rich Middle East, heavily populated South Asia and the economically emerging and resource-rich Central Asia.





Current Status:

Phase I:

Us $ 248 million. Status: 100% Complete

3 Multipurpose Berths

Length of Berths 602m

4.5 Km long Approach Channel Dredged to 11.5m-12.5m. {Actually its been dredged to 14.5m}

Turning Basin 450m dia.

One 100m Service Berth.

Related port infrastructure and port handling equipment & Pilot Boat, Tugs, Survey Vessel etc.

Phase II:

US $ 932 million: Work Progressing on building 9 additional berths, which will be:

4 Container Berths.

1 Bulk Cargo Terminal (to handle 100,000 DWT ships).

1 Grain Terminal.

1 Ro-Ro Terminal.

2 Oil Terminals to handle 200,000 DWT ships.

- No mention of further deepening the port in the future. But it can be deepened to 16 meters.

Link to what I'm talking about:

Quote:
Gwadar port presently has a quay length of 602 metres with 14.5 metres of depth alongside, which could be increased to 16 metres later on.

This shows where the high rises will be built in Gwadar. In the middle on Jinnah Avenue and along the western shoreline of Gwadar. There's also a revolving restaurant proposed in the middle. The dredged part on the hammerhead is ofcourse the deep sea port:
