We’ve all seen and heard about luxury shopping and living in global business and tourist hubs like Dubai, Singapore, London, and Rome. But little do we see any commercial or residential construction in Pakistan that comes even close to what we’ve come to think about luxury in this hyper-connected digital world.
Be it the UAE’s Mall of the Emirates, US’ Grand Canal Shoppes, Japan’s Canal City, or Hong Kong’s The Landmark, none has anything remotely comparable in Pakistan. The same goes for residential buildings. We’re yet to see anything like One Palm of Dubai, The Interlace of Singapore, or One Hyde Park of London, in Pakistan.
True, that the local property landscape is transforming, but it will still be many years before it can catch on to the global real estate markets in both commercial and residential spheres. Although there’s no dearth of property developments in Pakistan – with new projects and residential societies sprouting around urban centers as well as far-flung suburbs – individual investors are yet to experience true luxury and value for the piles of hard-earned money they invest.
But, it seems like the Al-Bari Group of Companies is aiming to change that with their new eco-friendly, ultra-luxury project, The Aquatic Mall. Being Pakistan’s first-ever underwater-themed mall, the project will reshape Pakistan’s commercial, residential, and hospitality real estate. A sprawling development stretched on about 24 kanals, the mall has anything and everything that you can ask for, delivering an unsurpassed shopping and living experience.
The Aquatic Mall is the future landmark of Islamabad with a host of amenities including an underwater tunnel which will have a variety of sea species imported from across the world. Based on the marine theme, this mall is not only for shoppers, but also for people who want to feel close to nature. Located at the prime location of GT Road, The Aquatic Mall is easily accessible from anywhere in the twin cities.
What the iconic mall has to offer
The Aquatic Mall will feature 16 floors and a rooftop. While three basement floors will provide ample Car Parking for the visitors, the first five floors will house Shopping Outlets of top local and international brands. A Food Court will occupy the next two floors where people can enjoy a vast variety of cuisines from different local and international food chains, besides a Marine-Themed Restaurant.
To make the visit to The Aquatic Mall wholly fun-filled for kids, one entire floor is dedicated to the Kids’ Area, which is designed keeping in view all the safety measures. Children will enjoy a variety of indoor games and rides while parents can enjoy worry-free shopping by leaving the kids in the safe hands of the mall’s attendants dedicated to the Kids’ Area.
State-of-the-art Business Facilities and corporate offices will occupy the next two floors, making the mall an ideal place to hold business meetings and corporate events. Two floors of The Aquatic Mall will be reserved for Luxury Apartments which will be the best selection for people who love to own a luxury lifestyle.
Deluxe Suites will enlighten the whole mall being situated on the top floor. It will offer all the luxurious amenities and VIP facilities, along with one wall of the suite being dedicated to the aquarium where people will get the best sight.
Here’s a quick look at the mall’s other salient facilities:
- Underwater Tunnel
- Infinity Pool
- Sky Walk
- Blue Mosque
- Gym & Spa
91-feet tall cylindrical aquarium!
The gigantic aquarium at The Aquatic Mall is going to be its major identifier. Standing a huge 91 feet tall, it is guaranteed to make you forget all the fish tanks you’ve seen in your life! Plus, its incredible marine exhibit boasting sea species brought in from across the world will surely leave you mesmerized.
The aquarium can easily qualify as one of the world’s tallest aquariums. It will be the key feature that gives The Aquatic Mall its true marine theme. Plus, this jaw-dropping exhibit is what welcomes the shoppers at the mall.
Luxury living redefined
For the first time in Pakistan, The Aquatic Mall has introduced ultra-luxury living with its spacious apartments that feature private lawns and views of wide-open skies. The mall allows you to experience unsurpassed luxury with its world-class high-rise terraces. The amenities that these apartments are equipped with are hard to match with any other luxury development in Pakistan.
Moreover, Deluxe Suites at The Aquatic Mall take luxury as we know it to a whole new level. Imagine living in a suite with a floor-to-ceiling window providing a view of over 65,000 tropical fish. Guests will discover extraordinary depths and unparalleled service, as they unwind in one of The Aquatic Mall’s lavishly tranquil havens.
