Want to make an investment in Islamabad’s real estate? Wondering which project will offer you the best returns? Have you considered investing in Capital Smart City Islamabad as an option? Here, we’ll discuss all there is to know about this project so you can make your investment decision wisely, keeping all of the relevant factors in mind.


Capital Smart City (CSC) aims to become the first ever smart city to be developed within Asia, offering smart, automated, secure and modern living accommodations to its residents. The city is being developed with eco-friendliness and self-sustainability in mind, especially considering the rising rate of the population within the twin cities of Rawalpindi and Islamabad.

The development is a project of Future Developments Holdings Pvt Ltd (FDHL), which is the sister concern of Habib Rafiq (Pvt) Ltd (HRL). It is a legal housing scheme, having its Capital smart city NOC approved from the Rawalpindi Development Authority (RDA).

Capital Smart City’s Location

Capital Smart City’s location ideally places it on the M2 Motorway, near to the New Islamabad International Airport. It is also the only project to have an approved interchange that connects it directly to the motorway. The city is also right alongside the eastern route of CPEC, ensuring that the geographical location of the development offers complete convenience of mobility to the people residing there.



This is a residential sector within CSC and offers different plots and villas along with golf farmhouses for those who are interested in investing in Capital Smart City Islamabad. All of this complements the 18-hole golf course and clubhouse located nearby. There is also a golf academy for those who would love to learn to play the sport.


This is a residential plus commercial hub within the society, with shopping malls, hotels, cinemas, a dancing fountain and even a floating village. The area’s focal point is the Crystal Lake, with mixed-use real estate on offer in the surroundings.


China Village is also built near the Crystal Lake, offering mixed-use real estate, along with shopping malls and lots of entertainment opportunities for the residents.


The Overseas Block has particularly been designed to offer overseas Pakistanis with a lucrative investment opportunity within Pakistan. However, locals can also make the most of the state of the art community and enjoy the amenities that it has to offer by investing in Capital Smart City Islamabad. The project offers residential plots and villas as well as healthcare, educational and religious centres.



Proposed Infrastructure for Financial Square and Central Park

While the Financial Square also offers residential apartments, the core purpose of this project is to promote commercial investment in Capital Smart City. There are office spaces for corporate setups as well as banks, with conference and exhibition halls being ideal for seminars. Hotels built in the area can also house visiting dignitaries and other corporate guests.


Keeping Capital Smart City’s close proximity to the Islamabad International Airport in mind, the project will also be home to an Aviation Village that takes logistics to the next level. Having large warehouses with cold storage facilities, as well as exhibition halls, corporate offices and hotels, this is the perfect place to cater to the logistics and hospitality needs of the aviation industry.


The FDH Buildings are home to sales galleries for people interested in buying property in Capital Smart City. The entire management of the facilities located within the project is also done from this commercial hub.



Residents of Capital Smart City do not have to travel long distances in search of entertainment. The Holiday Park will contain not just a theme park and a bird park, but also have a park separately for food trucks so that you can enjoy street food of the best quality, close to home. The area will also be home to a holiday resort for those who wish to travel to CSC, simply for the entertainment it offers.


Trying to keep the surroundings green and clean, CSC offers not just small parks but also three dedicated types of gardens, each having its own purpose. There will be flower gardens, which contain flowers of every season, linear gardens that utilise space saving techniques for gardening and heritage gardens, which reflect our cultural heritage with the help of landscaping.
