Spanning over 1000 acres of land, the Golden Palms is the zealous vision of Mr. Sadruddin Hashwani, after Zaver Pearl Continental Hotel at Gwadar. Surrounded by the pristine beauty of the Makran coastline, the township is one of most prominent projects situated at the western end of the city, and overlooking the Gwadar West Bay. Surrounding the harbor is a series of zones, with commercial, residential and amenity area, the Golden Palm> is the symbol of Gwadar's meteoric rise and the grand intent of our truly unprecedented master plan.
Meinhardt, a Singapore based urban design company, has planned The Golden Palms with a meticulous attention to every detail.
Golden Palms promises a wealth of quality amenities, breathtaking vistas, embodying the expectations of the modern professional and luxurious lifestyle to cater to the needs of the future residents of the city.
The scheme is divided into four quadrants or Zones, named after four palm families:

Due to its strategic location at the southern extension of Pakistan into the Arabian Sea, Gwadar renders itself as convenient gateway for transit traffic into the landlocked Central Asian Republics, Afghanistan and Iran.
This geographical advantage endows Gwadar with the potential of becoming a commercial and economic hub of the South Asia, much on the same lines as port cities like Dubai and Hong Kong.
The rapid development taking place in this area, such as the construction of the Makran Coastal Highway, the proposed rail, road and telecommunication links connecting Gwadar to the rest of the country and construction of multipurpose berths etc. prognosticate a burgeoning housing demand.
The population growth of Gwadar is estimated at 6% of local population and a large immigrant influx from other provinces is expected. The demand for housing based on this projected growth is anticipated at 10,000 units by the end of the year 2005.
The proposed project aims to cater to that impending need for housing, taking into consideration the clients' stated parameters and requirements.
Keeping in view the predicted growth of Gwadar (foreseen as the future Dubai or Hong Kong of South Asia), Golden Palms is perceived as a modern residential complex as well as an iconic landmark of the architecture of 'luxury-living' in the new millennium.

Golden Palms Gwadar has been envisioned as a self-contained residential district offering all the necessary infrastructural, commercial and recreational amenities, creating a landscape for luxurious living amidst unique, superior architecture.
The vision aims at providing a modern, secure, healthy and meaningful environment to its inhabitants. The design is geared to maximize spatial utility while offering large open spaces around which entire residential compounds can be organized.
The earliest example of an architectural representation of an archetypal utopia or paradise can be found in Muslim Persia and subsequently in Babari and Timurid dynasties in the mid-sixteenth century with the creation of Chahar Bagh.
This planning type comprised of four quadrants, representing the four elemental forces in nature, wind, water, earth and fire, subdivided by cruciform axial paths along the cardinal points lined by water channels. At each intersection there was either a central resting pavilion or a sculptural focal element such as the Court of Lions at Al-Hambra, Spain. This garden and city planning type continued to remain a popular design theme in the Indo Persian empire for almost three centuries.
We are proud to have revived this ideal traditional planning prototype in a modern context and introduce relevant variations as and when the need arose.

Security: One of the most important duties of the O&M company/society will be the security of the community. For this purpose the estate will be walled and gated with manned entrances for the safety and exclusively of its residents.

The power and telephone services will be provided within the framework of the Government of Pakistan as these two areas are regulated. The rest of the services will be part of the Golden Palms infrastructure and their operation will be charged to residents on use or average basis whichever is applicable

It is envisioned that the residents of Golden Palms will come together as one big family. To encourage and foster community development, Golden Palms will have a community centre, a town hall and the Golden Palms Club. The first two are located in the centre of the community for easy access by all residents while another club will be located in tourist area. The community centre will be run by residents' committee to ensure that it responds to the changing needs of the community which it will support.
