KARACHI: Mustafa Kamal, a former mayor of Karachi, is directly monitoring all Bahria projects for the last one year, announced the Chief Executive Officer of Bahria Town, Ahmed Ali Riaz Malik, on the brick laying ceremony of Bahria Heights in Bahria Town Karachi.
“Mustafa Kamal is directly monitoring Bahria’s entire project in Karachi from Dubai,” he said, addressing over a 1,000 people including real estate developers, investors and people from different aspects of life.
“Bahria Town Karachi will have a Rs45 billion Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) which will connect the town with the city centre,” he said, adding that the BRT project was conceived by Mustafa Kamal and Bahria gave it wings.
“Bahria Heights will be completed in three years, but today I am telling you all that within one year a proper structure of the buildings will be here on this ground,” said Malik, pointing towards the ground where the ceremony was being held.
Malik said the pace of development was phenomenal. “We mobilised the project on May 4 this year and in a record time of five months and 24 days we have proved our worth in this area.” He also promised that people will see three times more development work in the next three months.
The CEO said that Bahria Town has come to Karachi after 19 years to make projects with the promise to deliver before time. Discussing some future projects, Malik said the citizens of Karachi will see large-scale development and major changes in the infrastructure.
Bahria Town general manager for construction gave a detailed presentation about the development plans with the help of 3D models. He also explained distinct features of Bahria Heights. “For the first time in Pakistan, we are introducing garbage shoots in every building which is a step towards a better life,” he said.
Concluding, Malik said that the project also offers plans for people who cannot afford one-time payments. “We will provide 15-25 years payment plans for people.”
