NOC and Planning Permission 

The Al-Hamra Avenue Capital Development Authority has approved Islamabad, CDA. On March 15, 2008, the CDA issued a NOC and clearance for this project. It is a critical point for the investors as they look for approved housing projects in the Federal Capital. The sponsors have requested the CDA that the project be renamed Eden Life. The request is currently pending owing to a lack of claim settlement.

Location 

The housing scheme enjoys a significant location in the Zone-V of the Federal Capital. It is located on Lethrar Road, which leads to PINSTEC, and is about a 20-minute drive from the Serena Hotel in Islamabad. The CDA is planning a new dual highway called Khanna Bridge that will connect Islamabad Highway with Nilore. The bridge will also make it convenient to go to Al-Hamra Avenue. The government will extend the bridge to all zones. However, the Lehtrar Road entrance will be the primary access.
