    this is not EMAAR’s vision for karachi water front …. in fact it was the proposed design for Bin Qaim Park / Beach Park …. but which later on never implemented .. (due to so many reasons/justifications the present CDGK have)…

    Are you sure? I got this in an email that said it was Emaar’s project. I’ll look it up.

    I work with Emaar in Dubai. As far as I know, from what they showed me, Crescent Bay in Karachi does not look like this.

    Unless this is a picture of Emaars vision for Bundal and Buddo Islands developments? – Which is a seperate project.

    Interesting. Then I stand corrected. I was misled in an email forward.

    But this is SOMEONE’S vision for the future of Karachi.

    How about we make it a mission to find out whose project this is?

    This is the picture of crescent bay (from wikipedia link in the post). Nevertheless, the image in the post also looks very interesting, looks like a beach theme park or something, and if it does get developed like that it would be an interesting place to visit.

    Imran, only authors can post on this blog, who are selected once or twice an year. Everybody else can comment!

    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.

    i think this project was a vision some british company proposed it. They even setup their office in karachi but project never got approved. The location for this was where we now have the beach park – jahangir kothair parade

    “New coastal city in Karachi to be built on reclaimed land: Shaukat”

    GREAT – Now we are surely on our way to become an Asian Tiger or was it a pussy cat!

    This is old news, it is the same project I spoke of in my earlier post.
