Due to economic reasons, Dhaka is as of now with shortage of grounds for giving home to its tenants. Thus, alongside the extension of the region of Dhaka, Government is anticipating go for multi-storied lofts as housing arrangements inside the city. Government of Bangladesh gives housing to the general population who work for the administration. Rental housing offices are given to all people in general hirelings from higher authorities to workers and they can benefit these offices until the point that they achieve retirement. For densely populated nation like Bangladesh, housing is a vital issue. Government Housing projects were worked all through Bangladesh to suit expanding number of worker but failed to satisfy the need. Government officers need to rent house with higher rate or dwell in sub standard homes. Thus, officers face financial and social issues. Thinking about these issues, Ministry of Housing and Public Works stepped up with regards to a housing project for the Government Officers in Azimpur Colony. Basically there are phases of the project to redesign the colony in order to satisfy the demand for housing.
