Blue World City Islamabad

Blue World City Islamabad Overview

Blue World City is a mega-project initiated by BGC-IGC Consortium that lies in the footsteps of the Potohar range near Chakri and is expected to expand up to 100,000 kanals in a few years. This mega city features replications and cultural symbolism from the Islamic world with designs featuring a modern western outlook. 

The construction works are in full swing as of 2022 with successful project completion and growing interest of residents and investors alike. The state-of-the-art design features to-be the world’s largest horse mascots, Blue Mosque Replica, a high-end corporate office that replicates the famous Burj Al-Arab, water theme park, sports city, night safari, gymnasiums, hospitals, schools, cinemas, shopping malls, 5- and 7-star hotels, and more. 

The city within the city is located on the outskirts of Islamabad. Residents of Blue World City will have access to the New Islamabad Airport, M2 Lahore-Islamabad motorway, CPEC main route, and Rawalpindi ring road within a few minutes ride from the city. The city is also an ideal tourist destination as it is Pakistan’s first purpose-built tourist city with an international standard lifestyle and accommodation. 

The nearness to the CPEC route and M2 will attract businesses and traders, whereas the international standard masterplan will attract overseas Pakistanis to build a home in Pakistan with world-class amenities. Once completed, Blue World City would be one of the most developed artificial cities in Pakistan.

Master Plan

Blue World City features a purpose-built tier-1 master plan that was completed in consultation with world-renowned urban city planners and architects. The sewerage and drainage systems, waste management, wide roads, contemporary health and education facilities, and market tourist destinations were considered whilst planning the project. The extensive master plan is undertaken keeping in view the probable expansion sites across the M2 Motorway to avoid bottlenecks during the extension processes in the future.

BWC Proposed Masterplan (Extended Version)

Blue World City is divided into several blocks, which include General Block featuring vertical multi-story apartments and residential villas as well as commercial hubs, Overseas Blocks (Phase-I and Phase-II are near completion), and Blue Hills Country Farms that encapsulate stunning landscapes around the entire block. Awami Villas are affordable housing units exclusively built for residents and investors with most of the housing works completed and operational as of 2022. The Blue World Economic Zone is a wide-ranging economic complex for businesses and foreign investors. Orbital Apartments and Awami Residential Complex are recently added in the extension phase and are attracting hefty investments and attention from residents and real estate investors.

NOC Updates

Blue World City Islamabad is granted full authority by the Planning Commission of Rawalpindi Development Authority (RDA). The initial land grant for BWC was 427 Kanal under the NOC delivered to BGC-IGC, the parent company of BWC project. The city expanded rapidly across the M2 which created several moza issues in 2021, after which the government stepped in in late 2021 and resolved the NOC issues by granting land ownership to the consortium for further planning and development. As of 2022, the renewed NOC from RDA and concerned authorities is pending approval for the expansion part. However, the recent negotiations with the Planning Ministry indicate that the NOC will be renewed this year, which will hike property rates in the project.
