The government of Pakistan has approved the construction of the 7 Wonders City Islamabad. The project is a joint venture between the Pakistani and Chinese governments and will be located in the country’s capital, Islamabad.
1. Islamabad may soon become a ‘Wonder City’
The city of Islamabad may soon become a Wonder City, if plans are approved by the Pakistani government. The proposal to make Islamabad a Wonder City was first put forth by the Islamabad Metropolitan Corporation (IMC) in early 2020. If approved, Islamabad would join the ranks of Dubai, Istanbul, and Kuala Lumpur as one of the world’s most prestigious cities.
The IMC has proposed several changes that would need to be made in order to make Islamabad a Wonder City. These changes include the construction of new roads and bridges, the development of new tourist attractions, and the improvement of infrastructure. The IMC has also proposed that the government create a special economic zone in Islamabad, which would attract businesses and create jobs.
The Pakistani government is currently considering the IMC’s proposal. If approved, Islamabad would become the first Wonder City in South Asia. This would be a major coup for the city, and would help to boost the economy and attract tourists.
2. Islamabad’s bid to become a ‘Wonder City’
There are two Islamabad bids to become a Wonder City. The first is from the city itself, and the second is from a group of private developers.
The city’s bid is based on the fact that Islamabad is already a world-class city, and that it has the potential to become even more so. The private developers’ bid is based on the fact that they have the resources and the expertise to turn Islamabad into a truly world-class city.
Both bids have their merits, and it is up to the selection committee to decide which one is more worthy of the title of Wonder City.
3. ‘Is 7 Wonder City Islamabad approved?’
The much-awaited Islamabad Master Plan 2025 was finally unveiled last week, and with it, the possible future of the Capital city. One of the most anticipated aspects of the master plan was the fate of the so-called “7th Wonder City”, a massive real estate project that has been in the works for over a decade.
The project was first conceived in 2008, and was originally slated to be completed in 2014. However, due to a number of delays, the project has yet to be completed. The most recent delay came in 2018, when the Islamabad High Court ordered a stay on the construction of the project, citing a number of irregularities.
Now, with the master plan finally unveiled, it seems that the fate of the 7th Wonder City is finally sealed. According to the master plan, the project has been officially scrapped, and the land that was to be used for the project will now be used for other purposes.
While the exact details of what will be done with the land are still unclear, it is safe to say that the 7th Wonder City will never see the light of day. This is undoubtedly a disappointment for those who were hoping to see the project come to fruition, but it is also a relief for many who were concerned about the environmental and social impact of the project.
The 7th Wonder City was always a controversial project, and it is perhaps fitting that it has met its end in such a controversial manner.
4. Islamabad’s chances of becoming a ‘Wonder City’
Is Islamabad set to become one of the world’s ‘Wonder Cities’?
This is a question that has been on the minds of many Islamabad residents lately, ever since it was announced that the city is being considered for the title of ‘Wonder City’.
So, what exactly is a ‘Wonder City’, and what would it mean for Islamabad if it were to be given this prestigious title?
A ‘Wonder City’ is a city that is recognized by the UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) as being of ‘outstanding universal value’.
There are currently only six cities in the world that have been given this title, and they are:
• Cairo, Egypt
• Edinburgh, Scotland
• Florence, Italy
• Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
• Saint Petersburg, Russia
• Venice, Italy
As you can see, if Islamabad were to be added to this list, it would be in some pretty elite company.
So, what are Islamabad’s chances of becoming a ‘Wonder City’?
Well, the city does have a lot going for it.
It is the capital of Pakistan, and is home to some of the country’s most important government buildings and institutions.
It is also a major cultural center, with a number of museums, art galleries, and historical sites.
In addition, the city is surrounded by some of the most stunning natural scenery in the world, including the Himalayan Mountains, the Karakoram range, and the picturesque Margalla Hills.
All of these factors make Islamabad a strong candidate for the title of ‘Wonder City’.
Of course, there is no guarantee that the city will be given this honor.
However, if it is, it would be a huge boost for the city, and would help to put it on the map as one of the world’s most exciting and dynamic cities.
