Lahore (Muhammad Yasir) With surging real estate demand in Gwadar because of CPEC, a local company, Eiwan, launched Pakistan’s first beach front, resort style housing project called Oshun by Eiwan. Envisioned as a ‘resort style living’ community, this iconic project is nestled in between pristine beaches on one side and miraculously carved mountain ranges on the other, making Oshun by Eiwan, the finest address in Pakistan.
One hundred and fifty real estate dealers flocked to the launch event for Oshun by Eiwan held in Karachi, with the expectation that the project marks a new beginning for the real estate sector in the country. ‘In my 30 year experience in this business, I have never seen such a high level of professionalism and trust in an urban developer,’ shared Rizwan Ahmad, a prominent real estate dealer who travelled from Rawalpindi to attend the event.
While owning a slice of the new silk route is becoming a reality thanks to CPEC, there are lots of real estate firms selling property in Gwadar. Not all of them are trustworthy. You have to pick to a developer you can trust. For too long, local investors, overseas Pakistanis and young professionals have had to navigate a notoriously low trust market, which makes property investments unnecessarily complex and risky in Gwadar.
Fortunately, the Consultants Group, which was given end to end responsibility by the Government of Baluchistan to manage Sangar – Gwadar’s number one housing project – has now launched a new private sector, urban development company, called Eiwan (www.eiwan.pk). According to sources, a 1000 square yard commercial plot in Gwadar’s Sangar Housing Project in 2015, could be bought for 26 lac rupees. Today, that same plot is worth Rs. 50 million. This was possible due to high standards of land governance and digitization of land records for Sangar, which brought credibility as well as trust to the project.
‘Eiwan is here to revolutionize and professionalize the real estate industry in Pakistan,’ shares Faiz Kidwai, Chief Executive Officer, CG Holdings Private Limited. ‘We currently have builders and constructors but don’t have developers in a true sense in Pakistan. Our vision is to create an urban development company where all our stakeholders are in a win-win situation, from investors to residents, as well the local communities in which we operate. We have a vision to create Pakistan’s most trusted urban development brand for the next 100 years.’
