Development Status

AWT D-18 Islamabad has launched around 20 years ago with the idea of providing inexpensive housing to army officials and other employees of AWT in Islamabad. The housing structure comprises blocks A, B, C, D, E, F, G, and H. All blocks are wholly established and complete for construction. There is just a scarce house built in Society. Still, more construction is projected after the Sangjani Interchange is complete and undoes up direct access to Society.

The community is predictable for inauguration a few more blocks after the completion of the Interchange because the claim for properties is much higher than the number of plots available in the Society. The builders will make additional expansions to cater to the increasing demands.
