Islamabad: The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has instructed its engineering wing to revive the Ladies Club in Sector G-10 project and resolved the issues hindering its construction, news sources reported.

Originally, the project was initiated in 2006 with an initial budget allocation of PKR 182.8 million; however, it was subsequently shelved due to financial limitations. CDA’s engineering wing, in a recent meeting, has request authority’s permission to float tenders for the project again.

The project’s initial 2006 plan included two wedding halls, a mini-cinema, a swimming pool, coffee shops, restaurants, a library, squash and tennis courts, and a gymnasium. In the revised design of the project, two basements were added that raised the project cost to PKR 335.7 million.

Reportedly, the board has asked that the engineering wing present a revised Project Concept-1 (PC-1) of the project and begin issuing tenders for the same in order to begin working on the project as soon as possible.

In addition to the club in Sector G-10, CDA intends to focus on several other projects in the city, including an art and craft village, a culture complex in Shakarparian and a citizens’ club in F-9.
