What is Capital Smart City?
Capital Smart City Islamabad is Pakistan’s first smart city housing society. Capital Smart City is built on real-time data gathering, storage, and deduction. Residents of the society would be able to live in an environment that is both luxurious and upholds the utmost standards of environmental friendliness and sustainability. Capital Smart City will be built on prime real estate, at the Thalian junction on the M2 motorway, near the New Islamabad International Airport. This is the only housing society that has received official authorization from FWO and the National Highway Authority to build a motorway interchange after being authorized by RDA. Plot prices in Capital Smart City Islamabad have seen a surge since its launch in 2018.
Who Owns Capital Smart City?
When making an investment in real estate, investors in Pakistan look at the location as well as the developer’s reputation. This housing project is the outcome of a partnership between two of Pakistan’s most well-known and largest developers, Future Developments Holdings (Pvt.) Limited and Habib Rafiq (Pvt.) Limited. When it comes to the developer’s track record, Habib Rafiq Limited has built the Defense Housing Authority, Bahria Towns, Multan International Airport, and other notable projects. HRL is also the developer of Royal Orchard Multan as well as any future Royal Orchard Societies in Pakistan. As a result of their partnership, Pakistan now boasts smart cities with facilities comparable to those found in first-world cities such as New York, Copenhagen, Berlin, and Singapore.

Capital Smart City NOC (as of April 2022):

This project is part of the legal/approved housing societies list, as shown below:
Subject to further expansion, the status of this housing project NOC might “sometimes” show as ‘under review’, on the RDA website. Every time CSC Islamabad adds new blocks or expands, the owners and developers of Capital Smart City perform their legal requirements and seek a renewal of the NOC.
Where is Capital Smart City Located?
This society is located in the Islamabad and Rawalpindi suburbs, at a prime position. The community is located near the Thalian Interchange on the M2 Islamabad-Lahore highway. A 5 minute drive takes you from capital smart city to new Islamabad airport. The housing society, on the other hand, divides Rawalpindi and Chakri Road. The National Highway Authority (NHA) and FWO have given their approvals to build a special interchange on the Lahore-Islamabad motorway. The projected Rawalpindi Ring Road and the forthcoming China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) are both in the vicinity.
The CSC is expected to be built over a land area of 60000 Kanals, according to the location and layout of Islamabad Capital Smart City. Within the housing community are the Sill River and its tributary Chauhan Dam making it one of the region’s few housing societies with natural water resources. Aside from that, the housing society is conveniently positioned to provide uninterrupted access to Rawalpindi and Islamabad’s major roads.

Features and Amenities offered by Capital Smart City:
- Gated community with top-notch security:
Capital Smart City will be a completely fortified and gated community with a safe and welcoming atmosphere for families. The community will be enclosed by a defensive border wall to provide an element of security.
Cutting-edge technology, such as CCTV cameras with facial recognition, scanners, threat alarms, and a team of professionally trained security personnel equipped with the latest gadgets, is used to protect every aspect of the project, all of which are integrated into a state-of-the-art central security and surveillance room to effectively counter any security situation.
In addition, this society will house a fully operating and responsive police station, and fire station in its vicinity to help with any criminal contacts or illegal behavior in the society.
24/7 Electricity, water and natural gas availability:
The society will ensure 24/7 electricity, water and natural gas availability within its premises to allow both residents and visitors with the utmost of comfort. This is accomplished as listed below:
- 24/7 Electricity supply:
The society will ensure a 24/7 supply of electricity to power all the smart facilities within the society, ensuring that the residents live a stress free high powered life without interruptions. This is done through a smart use of backup generators working in perfect synergy with the society’s own grid station, providing residents with a load shedding free environment. The society aims to employ the latest green technologies to generate power; these include solar parks and battery powered facilities to lessen the reliability on fossil fuel powered solutions.
- Water supply:
Given the prevailing state of water scarcity throughout the country, water availability is a key feature in any housing project. Therefore, Capital Smart City ensures water availability for its residents, so that they can enjoy a complete lifestyle. Water availability is ensured through a vast network of underground canals, large tanks and tube wells to provide water for all purposes.
In addition, a water treatment plant is being constructed which will provide ‘potable water’, i.e. water that can be used for drinking and cooking purposes.
- Natural gas availability:
24/7 uninterrupted gas supply will be ensured throughout the project, which given the current crisis, is no small feat.
- Sewerage Treatment Plant:
Sustainability and environmental friendliness are central tenets of a 21st century ‘smart city’ project. In that vein, a sewerage treatment plant is being erected, to ensure sustainable waste management. Untreated water may contain illness if it is not properly cleansed. Because humans live, work, and play near water, hazardous bacteria must be eradicated in order for water to be safe.
- Solid Waste Management System:
Plastic, paper, glass, metal, and biological garbage may all be classed depending on their materials. Solid waste must be handled systematically to guarantee environmental best practices, regardless of its source, substance, or danger potential. Solid waste management is crucial to environmental sustainability; hence it must be included into the planning of any housing project.
- Healthcare City:
The Healthcare City will house state of the art healthcare facilities to cater to the short, medium and long term needs of residents and visitors alike. Some key facilities available are listed as follows:
- CPEC Business Park:
This project will house a one of its kind CPEC Business Park, owing to the needs of the modern Pakistani businessman looking to penetrate the Chinese market and employ the best talent to raise his game to an international level. It also provides an opportunity for local talent to work with multinational companies to supercharge their careers.
- Top of the line schools and colleges:
Our children are our future, our hope and our legacy. As such, to provide the residents a complete lifestyle, Capital Smart City will house the best schools and colleges in the country.
- Mass Transit System:
One of the key features of a sustainable future is a fully functional mass transit system; therefore, Capital Smart City will house a state of the art BRT (Bus Rapid Transit) system which will connect all of its sectors. By increasing air quality and lowering oil consumption, as well as improved land-use rules, public transportation contributes to a healthier environment.
- Beautifully Constructed Mosques:
In Islam, the mosque is the most significant institution. Muslims go there at least twice a day, if not three or five times to rediscover their faith, deepen their connection with God, meet their Muslim brothers and sisters, and renew their feeling of belonging in the ummah.
- Sports district:
The sports district is a one of a kind multifunctional complex housing playing grounds, gyms, spas, and lush green jogging/walking tracks to provide a healthy lifestyle for the residents of the society.
