​Vision for Pakistan

• Development of Five Million Apartments for 20 Million People in Pakistan Living in the slums and unsafe buildings

• 3.5 million apartments in 10 larger cities and 1.5 million in 15 smaller cities.

Building Ownership

• These building will be owned Federal Government.

Financing Arrangement

• To build five million apartments, the estimated cost will be $200 Billion dollars (40/SF). To complete these apartments in 10 years duration, 20 billion per year is needed. 5 billion is equity and 15 billion will be loan

Apartment Leases (not ownership)

• Be given to those people currently living in unplanned dirty colonies and older unsafe buildings in downtowns.
• Have a monthly rent based on

      Income                                 Income Rent

    RS 25,000                                     5,000

    RS 50,000                                   10,000

    RS 100,000                                 20,000

• not be sold or given any type of ownership (that can cause legal issues when families grow)

Quality Control

• Buildings should be earthquake resistant with the ability to endure at least a category eight earthquake on the Richter scale.
• Experts should implement Passive Solar design buildings so as to safeguard residents from the nine-month long hot weather. Apartments layouts could range from 1-2 bedrooms, approx. 1000 SF.

Loan 150 Billion dollars in 10 years

• The 5 million apartments the estimated yearly rent collection will be $6 Billion. About $3 Billion will be required for maintenance and $3 Billion can be used as interest payment on the $150 Billion loan. If the projected is structured correctly and professionally, the $150 Billion loan can possibly be arranged at 2% annual interest. Pakistan can easily pay this back in ten to twenty years.

Equity Source: 50 Billion dollars in Ten Years

• $ 25 Billion can be generated by selling land for 100 high-rise buildings. This land will come from special district zoning in the downtown areas of different cities.

• Land (given to landlords by the British in 1947) used for welfare organizations until the 1980s and later sold/leased at a nominal rate to powerful individuals should be repossessed and auctioned off. This can generate approximately $ 25 Billion throughout the country.

Townhomes for Government Employees

• Special zoning areas for construction of three-story town houses on land acquired from government owned big houses (IG, DIG, SSP, SP, DSP, Commissioner, Deputy Commissioner, Assistant Commissioner, Chief Secretary, Secretaries, Chief Engineers,etc).

• Town houses should be leased to current government employees (doctors, engineers, teachers, professors) who do not have homes.

Development of Five Million

Apartments for 20 Million People

Zoning, Storm water Utilities, and Disposal Systems

• Town plans of all these cities will be revisited and completed in 12 months and following critical decisions need to be made.
• Site Selection for Apartment Buildings.
• Solid waste and liquid waste disposal systems and sites.
• Special zoning areas for construction of five to ten story apartment buildings along mass transit exits (circular railway, orange train, metro, ring road, etc) as shown on transit
• Maps of Karachi and Lahore. Land will be acquired by federal government at fair market value.

Zero Tolerance Policy

• There will be zero tolerance policy for future slums, and unsafe buildings in and outside of cities, or anywhere in Pakistan.

Vacated Land Use

• After residents move into the new apartments, the unplanned colonies should be converted into Green Belts, specifically for playgrounds, libraries, and schools. All the residents of a single unplanned colony should be moved at one into a new building. Conversion to Green Belts should occur immediately after.

• This will effectively develop the country and give the poor reasonable living conditions.
