Emaar Properties has expanded to Pakistan in line with its Vision 2010 to become one of the most valuable companies in the world through geographic expansion and business segmentation. Today, Pakistan is one of the key markets for Emaar, with the country already contributing to the international revenue stream through sale of Emaar Pakistan's master-planned communities in Islamabad and Karachi.

Emaar's approach to property development is to introduce integrated communities featuring the entire spectrum of lifestyle amenities such as healthcare, education, shopping malls and hospitality & leisure. Emaar's projects in Pakistan – Highlands and Canyon Views in Islamabad and Crescent Bay in Karachi – are integrated communities that bring in a new lifestyle choice to the country.
