Dar okays four housing projects for overseas Pakistanis

On Saturday, Minister for Finance Ishaq Dar approved four housing projects for overseas Pakistanis.

The Capital Development Authority (CDA) presented the projects, which include Nilore Residencia, Nilore Heights (3,876 apartments), Ghandhra Enclave, and Kuri Overseas Enclave, to the minister for execution.

The government estimated that the projects would generate approximately $2 billion from Pakistanis living abroad.


The Nilore apartments were constructed under the former PM’s Housing Scheme for the poorest segments at subsidized prices.

The meeting shared estimates that the Nilore Residencia-related project might fetch $62.3 million, Nilore Heights $137.4 million, Ghandhra Enclave $1.3 billion, and Kuri Overseas Enclave $770 million.
