As urban development has seen a phenomenal increase in recent decades, housing projects are investing in the best ideas of urban development to bring about the best options for general population or its specific groups. This gives rise to a diverse competition which ultimately benefits the society at large.
Islamabad, like all other cities, has seen a surge in number of regular and premium housing schemes. Eighteen Islamabad has come as the latest addition to these housing schemes of Islamabad.
Eighteen Islamabad is the first housing society that has been developed on international standards exclusively with a corporate approach of entertaining high-end customers, and transverses the concept of being just a society.
It is, rather, a city within a city, as has been called by its CEO Tarek Hamdy, all because of the lifestyle and amenities that are being provided at the doorsteps.
It is, basically, a high-end and state of the art society that puts forward the most luxurious offers of the time for a specific audience. It is true to its very core, when it is said that it is one of the most exclusive premium housing societies of Pakistan.
Adding to the wider arena of corporate housing schemes, Eighteen has been specifically designed for luxury, style, and class. It is a Futuristic housing scheme that whose main focus is to impart high end living experience on it residents.
Eighteen spreads over an area of 2.7 million square yards and lies at an extreme proximity to both the Islamabad International Airport and Islamabad/Rawalpindi cities. Situated at a very prime location, where nature thrives and flourishes at its full might, Eighteen is the most suitable and eco-friendly location to live in.
According to its master plan the Eighteen has been designed to incorporate around 2000 expansive residential units, 1,068 villas and 900 luxurious apartments that are built with exceptional architectural masterwork. Moreover, the project also comprises of commercial properties that are aimed for upper-middle class and upper class.
WHO ARE THE DEVELOPERS?
The Eighteen is a joint project of Ora Developers, Saif Group, Kohistan Builders and Developers. All of these are well reputed groups and already have a strong presence in the Pakistani and Egyptian real-estate sector.
Ora Developers, according to the CEO of Eighteen, Tarek Hamdy, has been in the luxury real estate sector since decades and has successfully completed projects in London, Grenada, Cyprus and Egypt. Ora Developers is owned by the Egyptian Billionaire Naguib Sawiris, the same billionaire who purchased Mobilink Pakistan about 20 years ago.

Kohistan Builders and Developers started its journey in 1991 and soon became a leading builder and real-estate developer. To date Kohistan Builders and Developers (Known more commonly as KBD) have successfully delivered different projects including KBD Tower, Kohistan Enclave, Zarkon Heights, and Odeon Cinema.
THE MASTER PLAN
WHERE IS EIGHTEEN LOCATED?
Eighteen Islamabad is located right beside the New Airport Islamabad (Known more commonly as Benazir Bhutto International Airport) in the Eighteenth sector of Islamabad. That is why it has been given the name of Eighteen.
It lies at a distance of about 22 kms from the heart of Islamabad, the Zero Point, while 7 kms from Rawalpindi GT Road interchange, and 26 number bus stop, and 5 km from Golra Mor. Furthermore it lies at a distance of 3 km from the Lahore-Islamabad exit.
Accessing Eighteen is really easy; no traffic jams, no red signals and no blockages. From Islamabad, it could be reached from Kashmir Highway coming straight from Zero Point, Islamabad. On the other hand, from Rawalpindi, it can be accessed through Rawalpindi-Pehsawar GT Road.
Those coming from the other direction, i.e., Lahore, can access it through the Rawalpindi GT interchange that lies at a drive of about 5 minutes.
HAS EIGHTEEN OBTAINED A NO OBJECTION CERTIFICATE?
It is the most crucial factor, while investing in real-estate, to ascertain if the investment is being done in a safe market where optimum return of investment is guaranteed. It is therefore pertinent to mention that the Eighteen has already obtained an NOC from Rawalpindi Development Authority (RDA) for its project.
This is the main reason Eighteen has already created a sensation and a buzz in the real-estate market, and the current prices are expected to sky-rocket soon keeping in view its status and development pace.
The formal acceptance of the project was granted in November 2017, and that is when the project actually started.

The master plan of Eighteen was conceptualized by Calisson RTKL. Eighteen has partnered with world renowned design firms WATG, Wimberly Interiors along with engaging with nine local consultants to implement the strict design guidelines and make it look more elegant and emanating a more architectural energy.
Nothing is ordinary when it comes to the living standards in Eighteen. There is a sense of uniqueness and exquisiteness reflecting from its every nuke and corner.
Eighteen has been designed to cater different needs and requirements that is why the residential plans offer two types of properties, i.e., Villas and Apartments. All of these plans are lavishly designed spaces built specifically for comfort and luxury.
Spread across 700 acres, Eighteen has a sense of broadness in it that captivates at the very first sight. This openness also reflects from the designs of its villas and apartments as well.
As it official website describes, Eighteen not only delivers beautiful design and landscaping, but also benefits from smart architecture by utilizing the very latest technology to maximize the local climate,
The apartments are spread in 28 pavilion style buildings with an arrangement of four apartments per floor to maintain the concept of spaciousness and tranquility. The striking feature of the pavilion style buildings are:
- 2, 3, and 4 bedroom apartments,
- 7 story buildings, to maintain the gracious, low-rise apartment living style

The extravagant villas of Eighteen are available in 10 Marla, 1, 2, 4 and 8 Kanals. As mentioned earlier all of the houses are pre-equipped with the necessary fixtures, cabinets and decorations. Besides that a special care has been taken to make every villa a special one by giving a panoramic view and surrounding it with the lavish green landscapes.
Available arrangement: 1, 2, and 4 bedroom
Typically the housing societies follow a same dimension, same built, or one shoe fits all approach for their housing units. Although Eighteen loosely follows this strategy, but only to the extent that all the apartments are of the same size, while all of the other necessities have been tailored according to the specific needs of the residents.
The Heights are luxury residential units consisting of 2, 3, and 4 bedroom arrangements. These apartments are solely designed for couples and small families. Keeping the aesthetic approach, upon which Eighteen has been based, these apartments too share the same vision. These will face the lavish green scape of the golf course.
