The projects will include a series of master planned communities that will set new benchmarks in commercial, residential and retail property within Pakistan.

The nation's capital, Islamabad, is home to two Emaar Pakistan projects: the Highlands and Canyon Views. With 1,500 acres between them the Islamabad communities offer 9,000 luxury single-family town homes and villas in a range of architectural styles with easy access to amenities including retail centres, community club houses, parks, lakes, schools and mosques.

Karachi will be home to Crescent Bay, a 75-acre development featuring high- and mid-rise towers for residential and commercial use, a shopping centre and five-star beachfront hotel. The towers will contain approximately 4,000 residential apartments.

Mohamed Ali Alabbar, Chairman, Emaar Properties said Pakistan represented a vital link in Emaar's global and regional plans. 'These current projects are only a small and initial part of our commitment to providing world-class living and infrastructure in Pakistan,' Alabbar said.

He added: 'Pakistan will play an important role in the development of Emaar's reputation in Asia, and remains one of our most significant commitments outside of the UAE.'

The Highlands development is located within the Defense Housing Authority Islamabad (DHAI) Phase 1 extension and Canyon Views is within the DHAI Phase 2 extension. Offering approximately 50 separate community districts with its own individual identity, a spectrum of architectural styles ranging from Mediterranean, Tuscan, Mughal, Arabic and Spanish, will be available to select from.

Crescent Bay, located within Karachi's DHA Phase 8 and in close proximity to the DHA golf course, will also offer individual architectural styles for each tower within the development. All three projects are expected to be completed in the next four to five years.

Mohammed Al Falasi, Managing Director of Emaar Pakistan said: 'Our goal is to create a series of exciting developments that set new standards for commercial and residential property. Highlands, Canyon Views and Crescent Bay will set these standards and are the first of many projects that we have planned for other cities in Pakistan, which we will be developing over the next few years.'

World famous master planners on the Crescent Bay development are Halcrow International with architects Norr and Holford while master planners WATG, RNL and JZMK are working on Highlands and Canyon Views projects.

Architects for the Islamabad projects are Mazen N. Issa, Alexandra Hayes, Bassenian Lagoni and Saunders & Wiant. The master planners have brought inspiration from the world's best designed residential communities to Pakistan - offering another Emaar signature landmark to the region.

Al Falasi added: 'Furthermore, we are aiming to preserve 20 per cent of the project area as green space, offering a haven of peace and natural beauty in the middle of a thriving community.'

Emaar's innovative offering of self-contained, amenities-rich communities have created lifestyle options that have been the first choice for many residents around the world. The integration of schools, health facilities, parks, landscaped grounds and retail centres into master-planned golf, equestrian and marina-themed lifestyles has proved a winning combination.

With joint ventures and projects covering Saudi Arabia, Syria, Morocco, Egypt, Tunisia, and Turkey, Emaar is taking its winning formula first conceived in its home base Dubai to the rest of the world.

Wow, looks interesting. I cant see much but I have horrible feeling that the building will all look the same or similar creating one of those dull atmospheres... I like the ideas of the bays with the large towers guarding the peninsulas.

Keep in mind that Crescent Bay is part of Emaar's initial $2.4 Billion investment into Pakistan (along with the two projects in Islamabad). This isn't part of the $18 Billion project to develop Port Qasim

Satellite imagery taken from the Pak forum shows Crescent Bay, ePlanet, Creek City, and Creek Marina. The City Gov. of Karachi plans to develop this whole region into a world class waterfront with lots of parks and highrises. Projects such as Creek City, Creek Marina, Crescent Bay, and ePlanet are initial projects, there are many more to follow.
