Community Life in Johar Town
Johar Town Lahore is a true representative of upscale and elite lifestyle and boasts a glorious posh community. Despite the fact that numerous new and modern residential communities have appeared on the map of Lahore, Johar Town is still renowned for its distinctive lifestyle that it offers to its residents. Its vivacious communal style, peaceful neighbourhood, wide community roads and exotic architecture which hold the residents back from relocating to any other dream society. Living in Johar Town is like a privilege that is granted only upon elite class. This magnificent community attracts all those who can afford living here.
Abutting Lahore Canal and motorway M-2, it is still a little farther away from hurly-burly city life, though the driving time has been considerably reduced due to a number of underpasses constructed on Canal Bank Road. When Johar Town was launched by the Lahore Development Authority (LDA), it was thought that people would not like to reside here due to its suburb location. However, soon the population in this newly established locality started sprawling and the locality proved to be an excellent housing opportunity for the elites and upper middle class people. The property rates are also high here, much like other high profile projects in Lahore real estate sector.
The natural green, wide and clean roads and pollution free ambience is what makes Johar Town a dream locality. These are the welcoming features of any posh society but we find this combination lacking in some of the other residential communities of Lahore. The wide roads ensure smooth flow of traffic even during peak times. Johar Town is an upper class area so many of the dwellers here have their own cars. There is also no lack of public transport to go around the neighbourhood or out of the society.
All the basic amenities are within walking distance, even the city’s best schools as well. Beaconhouse School System, Sterling Foundation, Bloom Field Hall School, Lahore Grammar School, Bait ul Ilm School, The International School of Choueifat, LACAS, SISA and The City School are a few major schools located within the community. Besides basic and high school education, you will not have to travel extensively away from the society, as some of the best colleges and universities are located within or on the periphery of Johar Town.
