Key challenges of the master plan included:
The key focus was to embed environmental protection into the services and infrastructure. Provision of quality well connected green areas will enhance the overall environment. On site water and flood management is intertwined with the open space strategy to treat water and maximise opportunities for rainwater harvesting.
The master plan of West Marina is a one of a kind in Pakistan in terms of providing affordable housing in an iconic business gateway. Amenities are strategically distributed, and infrastructure is integrated into the garden city concept to mitigate the threat of flooding. Introducing modern urban planning concepts, SMEC and Surbana Jurong have created a framework for a distinct and vibrant community, unique to Lahore.
