ARY Laguna to redefine living, boost Pakistan’s image around the world: Salman Iqbal


KARACHI: Groundbreaking ceremony of South Asia’s first of its kind housing and commercial project, ARY Laguna DHA City, was held on Wednesday in Karachi, ARY News reported.

President and CEO ARY Digital Network Mr Salman Iqbal, on the occasion said that ARY Laguna is the first of its kind project in South Asia and will redefine the concept of living in Pakistan.

“ARY Digital Network has a history of taking difficult steps that revolutionised different sectors in Pakistan, be it the launch of TV channel, the gold business or becoming a part of Pakistan Super League, so when we were in talks with DHA City about a construction project, we wanted to start a revolutionary  and iconic project like Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah and brought in Crystal Lagoons, a US company which has the experience of constructing more than 300 man-made tropical beaches around the world,” said Mr Salman Iqbal.

He added that the aim is to make the iconic project, which will have a 22-acre artificial tropical beach,  Karachi’s new downtown.

Mr Salman Iqbal said that the state of the art project, which will also have mid-tier affordable housing options and the biggest shopping mall in the area, will boost the image of Pakistan’s construction industry around the world.

“When I talk about mid-tier affordable housing, I mean you can get a single-bedroom apartment for about Rs4.5million to Rs5million and on installments, you can buy the same for around Rs45000 per month,” said Salman Iqbal.

He also announced that, to ensure buyer confidence, the project has partnered with four local banks for escrow accounts (account where funds are held in trust whilst the parties complete a transaction).
