Islamabad – a Setting Place for Capital Smart City
To grasp the modernity and beauty of Capital Smart City, we cannot proceed without describing
the essence of the city it is situated in.
Islamabad is the only city of Pakistan that tops the list of cities, also known as urban centers and cosmopolitan places, welcoming people from varying countries and civilizations.
For a city that boasts of a rich history that witnessed Aryans made their first-ever settlement of the region in it, the qualities such as being unpolluted and serene and, to top all these highly valued factors off, having a 4-seasoned landscape increases its chances of becoming people’s
favorite no matter how closely they hold their respective hometowns to their hearts.

The project has business and job opportunities for people of varying economic strengths. The sophisticated technological infrastructure and amenities have catapulted your chances to earn swiftly by working less and making more.
Elevated residential standards
Not to undermine the developers’ commercial and technological marvels given final touches, the whole project is centered around architecting residential blocks with finesse. That’s why you can expect living standards unparalleled to most of their rivals.
The overall environment of Capital smart City is incredibly healthy and calming to the nerves inquite a gentle manner. The hilly areas and extravagant greenery ensure no adverse impacts of increasing change in climate behavior.
Other than being infrastructurally advanced, the job opportunities due to CPEC and its identity as a commercial center will attract thousands of foreigners, eventually resulting in an increased number of investments.
Comfort at the center of every feature
Whether it’s a commercial project or a residential zone development, one distilling function that has been breathed into all the development projects is “comfort.” This will entice many to this “city within a city” where they will see how things are well taken care of. A calm and entrusted community will find enough dedication to focus more on their careers and lives in a way that they don’t forget.
Residential and Commercial Blocks of Capital Smart City
The area devoted to the block’s construction is divided into three segments, each representing a particular type of block.
The announcement of the overseas block happened back in Dorchester, London, back in 2018. The idea behind the block development was to have a specified area reserved particularly for overseas Pakistanis, where they will be given secure and valuable investment opportunities to
invest with an unprecedented display of confidence.
Located right on Central Boulevard, this block has all the potential to be considered the heart of the Capital Smart City.
The escalating interest of overseas investors will ensure a trustworthy relationship between Capital Smart City and themselves, which is why the anticipation of earning high ROIs here is equally high.
The process of buying something in this block would mean proving your International identity along with other mandatory documents.
The Overseas Block of Capital Smart City is found in the top region of the society, near Motorway M-2, on the right side of the main boulevard. The planned, authorized Interchange from the Motorway will allow direct access to the overseas Block. Investment made easy
The acknowledgment of the role Overseas Pakistanis have played in stabilizing the national economy is the motive behind this endeavour, and giving them the required liberty to invest in their motherland is an appreciable step.
Initially, the real estate scams and the formerly prevalent manual methods proved to be a great hindrance in letting people invest with confidence, and that’s why the online mode of booking was introduced to broaden the scope of Capital smart city.

Plot reservation amount
The executive block was launched by the Capital Smart City in May 2019 at the launch ceremony of society, which was followed by a brief as to the array of executive-level features that will make this block the immediate hot property in the town.
Initially, General block plot owners were allowed to exchange their plots with those of executive block’s, and of course, it was a short-term opportunity.
The whole scheme of giving people the chance to convert their plots to executive block plots lasted for about 3 as that was the time allowed to submit their final applications. This conversion meant that they wouldn’t have to pay the extra 30% of their plot value because that’s an extra percentage executive block plot cost. After the designated date, folks were to abide by the policy and pay the extra 30% if they wished the same conversion.
The capital smart city initially had a general block before the announcements of the other two, and this meant that the majority of the area was specified to the general block. It begins with the smallest area plot size of 5 Marla to 2 Kanal plots with a lot less expensive
packages, unlike these of today.
It is located on the main boulevard on the right on the opposite side. The area is comparably a lot bigger as compared to other blocks, and this can be seen on the map as well.
Judging by the modernity, technological advancements, and infrastructural depth of Capital Smart City, one would be a fool in not considering it in his investment plan. It is the only project of its nature and the financial square and Silicon Valley best inclusions that
will manifold the worth of this city in the public view.
