The Trend of High-Rise Apartments and Malls in Islamabad

Benefits of Investing in Express Mall and Residency Islamabad

What is a high-rise apartment according to Islamabad real estate?

Theoretically, from the Islamabad real estate point of view, any mall and residency building that stands above 75 feet is termed a high-rise. According to law, it is obligatory for a high-rise apartment building higher than 4 floors to have 2 lifts and a mall in Islamabad taller than 7 floors must have a fire-fighting system and an earthquake-resistant structure. 
Islamabad is famous for its planned development, picturesque views, and opulent lifestyle. Additionally, Islamabad was one of the planned cities. Over the years, the population has multiplied due to urbanization and people in search of a better lifestyle are trying to settle down in a centralized vicinity of the city. As a result, Islamabad real estate market rate has increased to double the actual number. To cater to this, the Capital development authority has taken benefit from high-rise apartments and building multiplex mall and residency rather than purchasing a full-fledged house.
Here is the list of top high-rise apartments with mall and residency in the capital city:
