Earthlink Expo 2022: A Success in the Twin Cities
Earthlink Expo 2022 has concluded, and it ended on a successful note.
The exclusive invite-only exhibition was held on 12th and 13th of March in Islamabad Marriott Hotel and received a positive response beyond expectations. It garnered a lot of public attention and has made its mark in history by being the first expo in Pakistan to bring over 15 projects by one company under a single roof.
The projects by Earthlink ranging from commercial, corporate and residential establishments formed a unique and noteworthy ensemble, attracting public, investors, developers and builders alike. The grand event was also attended by dignitaries, influencers and renowned personalities, making it a one-of-a-kind exhibition in the heart of the twin-cities.
Day 1:
The expo kicked off with the entire team gearing up to feature Earthlink’s name in the headlines. Senator Faisal Javed Khan and many other high-ranking officials praised the efforts of the company, and Earthlink is honored and proud to be the trend-setter. “I appreciate the efforts of Earthlink and Mubusher Hayat for organizing this event. This is a great platform to promote the Nation as a whole and it’s refreshing to see someone take such an incredible initiative”, the senator in an interview with Saima Ajram, senior consultant advisor to the Government of KP.
Sheheryar Munawar, currently known for his role in one of the top Pakistani dramas of the season Sinf-e-Aahan, also graced the event with his presence and expressed his joy and gratitude. Awards were distributed to the hardworking team of Earthlink and a cake cutting ceremony was held towards the end to celebrate the success of the first day. “I am really honored to be here and to experience an event on such a huge scale. I looked around with Mubusher Hayat, who is the CEO of Earthlink, and I had the great pleasure to learn about their amazing projects. I think the best part of the whole event was how the entire team was celebrated. I have great hopes for all the projects that I’ve seen. Here’s to hope, better times, and the wonderful projects coming up!”, the celebrity sharing his thoughts on the expo and the importance of team building.
The first day was a full house and the company was able to build long term relationships with new clients.
Day 2:
The second day was celebrated in colors of green. The theme revolved around the #BoomingPakistan campaign, which is an initiative to bring the emerging and inspiring leaders who are trying their very best to accelerate the economy of Pakistan. Earthlink is proud to be the badge bearer of many “firsts” in the heart of the Country.
The general public, company owners and high-ranking officials took part in promoting this step towards the betterment of Pakistan. Muhammad Shakeel Munir (President ICCI) shared his high hopes for the development sector of Pakistan and the #BoomingPakistan initiative. We were also honored to have the presence of MNA PPP Syed Khursheed Ahmed Shah and to have him reflect upon future prospects of the Nation in a positive light.
The efforts of the startups, SMEs and big companies were brought in the limelight and as a token of appreciation, shields and certificates were handed out to recognize their daily grind towards the progression of Pakistan. All of the owners and employees of these companies expressed their thanks to the entire team of Earthlink for giving them a platform to inspire everyone with big dreams. Some notable companies included Zameen.com, AH Group of Companies, Sardar Group of Companies, Nayatel, Chai Mehfil, Mani’s Kitchen, Kaamker.com, Jovi Technologies, Wild Wings, Ginyaki Oriental Café, Brick Marketing and Developers, and many more.
“Booming Pakistan is very close to my heart. I just want to give back the society and for that, we need to portray a positive image of our Country and ourselves. Let’s tell ourselves that we are the ones that are ‘booming’. It’s a cause that will be supporting lots and lots of startups that are not acknowledged, so we are trying to build this initiative where we can support all these people. I personally understand their struggles and that’s why I took this step. I see a huge potential for this to grow in the future”, CEO Earthlink on the #BoomingPakistan campaign.
Mubusher Hayat expressed his extreme delight upon the response that the expo garnered. “This is all thanks to the Almighty. We have clients pouring in; investors pouring in. I am speechless and short for words. We were able to sell a substantial amount of inventory at the expo and even despite that, we still have a lot of projects in our pipeline. I honestly think that I’ll have to organize another expo for that!”
The second day attracted twice as much attention. As an indicator of its success, the event was trending all over social media in Pakistan.

Earthlink Expo 2022 – Taking Over the Twin Cities

Earthlink Expo 2022 – Taking Over the Twin Cities
The term “Real Estate” has quickly become a hot topic – consider it as something that is now the “table talk” of the urban and rural community. You’ll find every other person talking about how they’re looking for ways to invest in lucrative property. With so many developers in Pakistan, that sounds like a piece of cake…

Until it’s not.
That’s actually where things go haywire – the root cause behind the confusion is the saturation of real estate companies. With the daily news exposing development companies committing fraud in broad daylight, it comes to no surprise that “another day, another fraudulent developer” has become a not-so-surprising reality of life; and inevitably, a huge headache.

That’s why Earthlink is bringing “Earthlink Expo 2022” to the Capital. Coming across billboards and streamers of property expos is nothing new; but for the first time ever, Earthlink is bringing over 15 of its commercial, residential, and business projects under one roof. It is an invitation for potential investors to discuss profitable opportunities with knowledgeable and trustworthy consultants. Earthlink’s name has been in the market for over decades now, and the company has built a reputation for providing exceptional services to its clients all over Pakistan. M. Mubusher Hayat, the CEO and founder of Earthlink, has a vision of seeing the brand become synonymous with excellence in concept, design, quality, customer service and satisfaction. The entrepreneur gave voice to his purpose and said “At Earthlink, we don’t just meet our clientele’s expectations, we exceed them every time we deliver property. That’s the only way to retain happy clients and build a strong relationship with them”. The grand exhibition will be a gateway for all investors to double their money without an ounce of fear.

Future of DHA Islamabad; The Eminent Living in Twin Cities

  1. Islamabad being one of the strategically planned cities with breath taking sites enjoys the status of second best city in the world. If you view the mega picture of twin cities of Rawalpindi- Islamabad (Please refer to Map-1) you will notice that:
  2. Let’s start with the Margalla Mountain Range, Margalla is a hill range that’s part of the lesser Himalayas located north of Islamabad, Pakistan. The Margalla Hills are situated at North and northeast side of Islamabad, high features of Murree and Abbottabad overlooking Islamabad are almostsaturated with multiple housing projectsto an extent that some projects are now extending to adjacent District Haripur in KP.
  3. Now coming towards the South of twin-cities, at its south western and westerly direction lays a vast tract of land which is located in between M2 Motorway and GT road which starts from Rawat and ends at Tarnol/ Wah. This area is highly significant in socio-economic context due to the abundant road network and its close proximity to supporting infrastructure for CPEC. Its location and linkage with CPEC (the Road to Future of Asia) has tremendous potential for growth. Let’s call it SZ (Southern Zone)
  4. The South Zone will be the hub of economic activities in near future. A thorough analysis on SZ reveals that this zone will result in attracting investments with handsome returns because of the following major developments;
  5. The approval of RBP (Rawalpindi bypass) commencing from Rawat, which connects the strategically planned DHAI Phase 3 and Phase 4, Bahria Phase 8.
  6. The RBP links the DHAI and Bahria with the New Islamabad Airport which will be the center of international trade plus M2 Motorway.
  • Furthermore, SZ has the potential of expansion across the motorway which can further accommodate mega projects.
  1. In addition to this a well planned construction of Rawalpindi Industrial Zone stretched over 125000 kanals of land along Rawat Chak Beli Khan Road is highly substantial as it links the motorway.
  2. After analyzing the above developments in twin-cities it can be safely concluded that the SZ will be theCentre of Gravity of major national and international economic activitiesin near future.In fact, it has already exerted a population and economic pull which now is the center of attraction for developers and international investors.
  3. Very interestingly, over 100 large size housing projects have already been initiated in the SZ. Most of them are already approved by various Government agencies; however, many are still in the process of approval. The most high quality housing projects include DHAI, Bahria Phase 8, CDA Sectors, Mumtaz City and Top City etc. However, two competitive rivals DHAI and Bahria are still at the top as both are providing the luxurious living standard and good services to their clients/residents. Within these two rival partners, DHAI is considered most credible developer in Rawalpindi and Islamabad.

 

  1. Since its inception however, DHA Islamabad has been facing various allegations like delay in development of various phases such as DHAI Valley and DHA 2 extension etc. Having taken enough bashing by its clients, DHAI has now realigned its path to address these issues once for all. The organization has chalked out a comprehensive strategy to speed up all those projects which were running in delays. Presently, a prompt work is going on in DHA Phase 3, Phase 4, Phase 5 (Ex Commoner’s Town) and DHA 2 extension/DHAI Phase 6. In addition, a number of other up gradation projects are being implemented in already developed sectors in Phase I and 2.
  2. Due to ongoing rapid development activities I believe a new Serene Islamabad 2 is coming up in the shape of DHAI and Bahria Phase 8 combined……..(Please refer to Map-2)
  3. DHAI Phase 1

(1) A quick work is seen on Phase 1 bypass linking DHA Phase 4 directly with GT Road.

All these areas will be further connected with upcoming Rawalpindi bypass and onwards to M2 and Islamabad airport. Bahria has already started purchasing additional land to expand Phase 8.

(2)  Much needed commercial units are coming up in Sector A and soon a number of commercials are being launched at the entrance of Phase 1 adjacent to Sector B 1. One sector commercial is already completed in Sector E.

(3) Missing aesthetics are being addressed at priority and an impressive Green DHA is seen with additional parks, plantation and parking.

(5) Aesthetics are being improved at par with Phase 1. A massive plantation drive is currently ongoing in all sectors.

(6) The world class McDonald is already inaugurated.

(7) The most impressive part of Phase 2 is up gradation of GT road to 8 lanes and a beautifully designed fly over connecting Phase 2 with Phase 5 over signal free Islamabad Express Way is in in final stages.

(8) In next two years this phase still holds 10 to 20 % space in profit in residential units but about 20 to 25% in commercial units.

 

  1. DHAI Phase 3

(1) A rather delayed project of Phase 3 has now picked up great momentum. This phase is going to be flag ship project of DHAI in terms of its size, its location and its connection with RBP (Rawalpindi bypass). Its main entry is opposite World Trade Centre on GT road and it is being extended to RBP.

(2) Zone 5 to 9 of Bahria Garden City has already become part of this phase. Renaming Garden City is renamed as Bahria Oriental Garden.

(3) A rapid earth work is ongoing which indicates a desire of DHAI to complete initial sectors in about 18 to 24 months.

(4) Phase 3 has bigger space in terms of return up to 50 to 55% in next 3 to 4 years.

  1. DHAI Phase 4

(1) Located on the bank of River Soan on high features opposite Bahria Intellectual Village with great scenic view has made this Phase attractive for those who desire to construct their homes in relative quiet, higher and beautiful location.

(2) It was previously known as DHAI Phase 1 Extension but now renamed as DHAI Phase 4.

(2) Askari 14 and Garden Villas Housing Society located on Adiala Road have already been merged in Phase 4. This connection has provided an entry/exit to this phase to Motorway through Adiala Road.

(3) It will be linked with Bahria Phase 8 and onwards to DHAI Phase 3.

(4) Although this Phase is developed up to 50% so far but due to its scenic location it still hold space for return up to 30 to 40 % in next 2 to 3 years.

  1. DHAI Phase 5

(1) Previously A to J sectors of Phase 2 was covering an area between GT Road and remaining sectors were in North of Islamabad Expressway. Now Phase 2 is limited to sectors A to J only and sectors K to Q have been renamed as DHAI Phase 5.

  1. Bahria Town Rawalpindi Phase 1 to 6
    Rates of property got stagnant in 2016 however, in 2017 plots and houses prices jumped to superior level. Shifting to Bahria Town Rawalpindi was the best solution for large number of families during the extreme hot weather and worse load shedding during this year’s summer. Because of this phenomenon Bahria Town in Rawalpindi experienced rise in rental prices of residential units including houses and apartments in different phases. The Phase 1 to 6 Bahria Town got densely populated by 300 plus families 60 % of them living on rent in houses and apartments generating the increased demand of units.

Very limited residential plots which are around 20% are left in this part of the city leading to 10 to 15 lacks of price lift.
  2. Bahria Phase 7 & 8 Becoming Home to Brands
    Now coming towards the Phases 7 & 8 of Bahria town Rawalpindi right on the scenic view of Sawan River where many new developments took place in 2017. Bahria Town authority gave possession of residential plots in various sectors of Phase-8, completion of road networks and provision of electricity was achieved, more than 50 % of new houses construction work was initiated coupled with the start of few commercial projects as well.

From 2014 to 2016 the 5 Marla residential Plot price in Phase-8 was dormant to maximum of 15 lacks whereas in 2017 it is being sold at the rate of 20lacks plus.
  3. Bahria Enclave Islamabad
    Bahria Enclave Islamabad has launched mega apartments and commercial projects in different locations which have brought a new trend in the luxury market of real estate in the history of Islamabad. Provision of possession of large number of plots coupled by the new cutting and development of plots in Bahria Enclave escalated the rates of property there. A large number of energy efficient houses and villa projects are completed and are in the phase of completion. The 5 Marla residential plot in Sector B-2 of Bahria Enclave was having the worth of 36 lacks in last two years and this year the price has jumped to 45 to 50 lacks depending on location and category.
  4. Bahria Town Karachi
    Because of the wonderful and innovative real estate landmarks and international standard amenities, Bahria Town Karachi remained the most popular society on the online searches in 2017. 125 sq yard plots were traded like hottest properties because Bahria Karachi probably won’t come up again with this plot cutting. Despite a huge demand of these plots which are available in 16 precincts, prices are still affordable. 250 sq yard plots come next on recommendation list which are located in 8 different precincts. Development of these plots is almost near completion (90%), so it is going to be a preferred choice of buyers in 2018. Bahria Sports City, the biggest project of Bahria Town Karachi, is witnessing massive trade of its plots. This trend will keep on for upcoming months as plot prices here are still in range. Bahria Golf City is another project of Bahria Town Karachi where buying time remained at its peak. Midway Commercial remained on top for the sale and purchase of commercial plots. Many new plot cuttings and planning of commercial projects were initiated in 2017 which are the best options to invest at Bahria Town Karachi.

Progressive Real Estate Developments in 2017

2017 has ended with many new developments, progress and shifting trends in real estate industry of Pakistan. The real estate sector in Pakistan is a significant sector of the economy. Pakistan spends about $5.2 billion on construction annually and construction output accounts for 2 percent of GDP. Despite the real estate market in Pakistan enjoying an optimistic trend for the last four years, the market cooled down in 2016 because of the new tax laws. Capital gains taxes, stamp duty, registration fees, and advance taxes were all revised upwards. In reaction to this incident consumers responded to major tax upheavals by buying smaller, more practical properties with energy efficient features to cut down on running costs .However, in 2017, investment in residential property increased by five to seven percent significantly in posh areas of major cities including luxury properties and gated communities. Many new trends and following progressive changes witness that Real Estate market in 2017 set to enter in sustainable growth phase in Pakistan.

Digitalization of Real Estate in 2017
2017 witnessed the largest dependency on digital tools and social medium for marketing, property search, selling and purchasing of property in Pakistan. The most popular online mediums used for selling and purchasing of properties in Pakistan this year included Zameen.com, OLX, booking.com, Trovit, meraghar.pk A large number of Real Estate companies have enhanced their social media presence to increase their reach to clients and customers nationally and internationally. On the other hand around 80 % of buyers were able to find their desirable property by using various online portals and Facebook pages. Many new online property portals are launched in 2017 and many new are in the phase of launching. While many companies still discuss innovations in the property industry and the significance of digital transformation, others have already started their implementation. And while many look at incremental innovations – e.g. increasing performance or reducing costs – others are in the process of fundamentally changing the business processes. The digitalization of real estate in Pakistan is changing the entire market trend and taking in a positive direction which is bringing more transparency as the buyer is able to do a comparative market and product analysis. Moreover, the data being gathered on search engines and various online channels is giving a clear picture of real estate trends and statistics which was impossible to record few years back.
The data generated from a variety of sources have the potential to facilitate major progress across the entire real estate sector – optimization, rationalization, dissemination of information and collaboration, ensuring that management and exploitation are as effective as possible.

CPEC Development is Heightening Real Estate in Pakistan
Pakistan is now primed for foreign investment in real estate. Work has already begun on the $51.5 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor and the benefits will flow to the real estate industry. Pakistani real estate has seen a tremendous increase in property prices since the agreement. It has not only grabbed the attention of investors, but the demand for land has increased significantly. Prices run into the millions in Gwadar, so we can say it has touched the sky. And, soon after the government announcement to construct a deep-sea port, the remote fishing town of Gwadar witnessed a significant boost in prices. The initiative has given rise to international housing schemes in Gwadar, not only for accommodating Chinese officials but for buyers across the board. Sanghar Housing Scheme, Canadian City, Naval Anchorage, Creek City Gwadar and many other real estate projects have received greater number of investment in 2017. Furthermore, the infrastructural development and initiatives of new energy projects in many urban and remote areas under the CPEC development has given a new dimension and direction to the real estate industry in Pakistan this year. Mega real estate projects advancements near new Islamabad Airport, northern Punjab and in many areas of Sindh is the evidence of this.

This year was a year with both negative and positive developments; however my focus was only on few positive aspects in this article. Real Estate is one of the most significant sectors in every country and Pakistan can make a lot of progress by making the best use of technology, innovation and creativity. There is a dire need that in the upcoming years more well educated and honest professionals contribute positively and this sector benefits every individual and family of our country.

Luxury Apartments Demand on Rise in Rawalpindi / Islamabad

 

The trend of buying luxury apartments has increased in Islamabad during last couple of years, primarily due to an increasing demand for secure, well-maintained and lavish units; it is therefore not surprising that between 2010 and 2016, apartment prices have increased.
Traditionally, apartment projects were mostly restricted to Karachi, as cultural preferences in Lahore and Islamabad were for horizontal residential projects. However, with the rapid urban sprawl, cities have become congested, land prices are going up, and the apartment living trend is swiftly gaining traction in these cities as well. In fact, in the last five years alone, the demand for apartments has gone up by nearly 30%, which has given rise to an increasing number of newly constructed high-rise luxury apartments in major areas of Rawalpindi and Islamabad.
There are approximately five thousand plus ready to move apartments available in Bahria Town phase 1 to 6 having about 60 % residents residing on rent here. Many luxury apartment buildings are in construction phase and few are in the planning stage. It is secure to invest in the luxury apartment projects in Bahria Town because of three main reasons; firstly, Bahria Town has very strict rules/regulations regarding the construction of safe and secure hi-buildings, secondly, the maintenance and development of roads, green belts, parks and other infrastructure is responsibility of the concerned authority, thirdly, residential units are high in demand and mostly occupied on rent as well as purchased. Moreover, the apartment’s buildings are being constructed by renowned and credible developers who provide excellent after sales services like maintenance and provision of facilities like, security, electricity etc.
Apartments are convenient to clean and maintain with few items of furniture. Apartments inside Bahria Town are highly secure and safe as the buildings have their own security system plus Bahria Town’s security on the roads.
Rents are soaring and demand for apartments is historically high in Bahria town phase 1 to 6, Construction of new multifamily units has been robust over the past five years, far outpacing that of single-family homes, but most of the product is in pricey markets and pricier neighborhoods, not in areas where demand is highest. That is because the costs of land and construction rose.
High rise buildings equipped with amenities and luxuries are in high demand within posh areas of major cities which is becoming a Pakistani urban trend and necessity. The best investment options for apartments are Bahria Heights, The Grande which is located in Phase 2, 3 and Civic center.
