The prime minister gave the order during a visit to the building, when he was briefed by CDA Chairman Amer Ali Ahmed and the club’s architect Nayyar Ali Dada. Mr. Khan urged the CDA chairman and Mr. Dada to come up with a feasible utility plan for the structure, which spans 22 acres and has a covered area of 265,000 square feet.
During the visit, the prime minister was accompanied by Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed, Planning Minister Asad Umar, Minister for Human Rights Dr Shireen Mazari, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Health Dr Faisal Sultan, and Senator Faisal Javed.
The CDA completed it a few years ago, and the structure is now ready for use. The Islamabad administration has put up a Covid-19 immunisation centre in a section of the building as a temporary measure.

According to a concerned citizen, if the club is established in the aforementioned building, the government should make membership available to ordinary citizens as well, since the Islamabad Club was practically a no-go place for ordinary citizens, with only bureaucrats and the elite gaining access.
The building includes facilities such as restaurants, indoor pool, gym, lobby, aerobic area and a fitness centre. The project was started by CDA in 2008 and when the structure was completed, the Supreme Court in 2010 took up the case and stated that this building could not be used as a club.
