Crescent Bay, Karachi
Crescent Bay in Karachi is one of three projects Emaar is working on in Pakistan, all worth a combined investment of $2.4 billion. A 75-acre development build on land reclaimed from the Indian Ocean, Crescent Bay includes residential and commercial components, including a shopping center and five-star hotel. Emaar has had to work closely with Pakistan’s military on the project as the military owns the best beachfront property in the city, according to the site Rupeenews.com. Here, a snapshot taken by a passer-by as some of the first buildings went up.
