Our Journey
and The legacy

Upholding values of honesty and trust to deliver the best in real estate has been our greatest accolade. The foundation of the famous Raja Market located in Raja Bazar, being the first milestone of our journey, was laid down by Raja Afsar Ali Khan after the independence of Pakistan in the 1950s, and the development journey hasn’t stopped since.

Starting in the inspirational streets of London, we have been delivering real estate excellence for more than 15 years. As a real estate development group, we have successfully completed more than 55 projects (remodeling & development) in a very competitive market of the United Kingdom.

IT BEGINS IN ISLAMABAD

Since 2016, our Group has initiated 7 real estate projects at the prime locations of the Capital of Pakistan, Islamabad. We have launched 3 hotels and 2 Luxury Apartment projects (Golf Floras & IMARAT Residences) with a Country Club and also a business district.

Our Corporate social responsibility

A sustainability first approach

Our human resource is one of the major drivers of the Group’s excellent performance. We realise that the most important asset of any organisation is its people! We are ambitious about the future, as we work together to carry forward our commitment to transform the real estate sector in Pakistan. The rapid pace of transformation, both in the industry and in our organisation, requires people to be determined and resilient so that they can learn quickly, face challenges, identify opportunities, and drive and own outcomes. Adaptability is key at the IMARAT Group.

We recognize the need to protect the natural environment. Apart from legal obligations, our Group proactively protects the environment by adopting sustainable practices. We have successfully established the Iqbal Institute of Policy Studies (IIPS), an independent policy research institute entrusted with the mission to generate, propagate, and track public policies to achieve sustainable development goals in Pakistan. The Group Chairperson, Mr. Shafiq Akbar, actively supports non-profit organizations and movements to promote the cultural and economic development of local and global communities. During his time in the United Kingdom, Mr. Akbar was personally involved in many CSR related projects, including working with local authorities to name a street in the UK after the great Pakistani Humanitarian, Mr. Abdul Sattar Edhi. Our Group initiates and supports several environmental, community, and educational programs. We are actively working with the Prime Minister’s Office, Ministry of Environment, Capital Development Authority (CDA), Rawalpindi Development Authority (RDA), Lahore Development Authority (LDA), Parks and Horticulture Authority of Punjab, and other organizations. We are also involved in projects of city beautification, road infrastructure, bridges, and intersections. We enthusiastically support the Prime Minister’s ‘Clean and Green Pakistan’ initiative. We are developing an Arabian Park on the Islamabad Expressway with the Capital Development Authority (CDA) to benefit various housing societies in the vicinity. Our Group is also responsible for remodeling and maintaining multiple sites in the Twin Cities.
