Overview of Johar Town
Johar Town Lahore is the classic upper scale neighborhood that has managed to retain much of its glory. Even though many other high end residential colonies have taken hold of the Lahore real estate sector but Johar Town is still among the popular posh areas. Located in south of Lahore, Johar Town falls near motorway M-2 and is a little farther away from areas like the Cantt, DHA, Gulberg and Walton. With new housing projects sprouting in the Eastern and Southern parts of the city, Johar Town seems rather at far away. With the widening of Canal Bank Road, construction of new underpasses and overhead bridges, the driving time to Johar Town has been reduced considerably.
Johan Town is one of the largest and the most successful residential projects of the Lahore Development Authority (LDA). As a neatly planned community in the city, the colony holds massive charms amongst the realtors and general buyers and offers a peaceful neighborhood for the upper and middle upper class families. Although this residential community is fairly old, it still holds superb real estate value because for most people, it is a dream place to have a home. Named after Maulana Mohammad Ali Johar, one of the founding fathers and active members of the Pakistan Movement, the development boasts wide, clean roads and lush greenbelts.
Like any other notable development in the city, Lahore Johar Town offers all the basic amenities of life at a walking distance. Since the prices of property in Johar Town are only affordable for the upper and upper middle class families, most of the dwellers go about the neighborhood in their private cars. There is no dearth of local transport since a taxi or a rickshaw can easily be hailed. The various car rentals have further eased the process of traveling in and out of Johar Town Lahore. It is an ideal place for families as the area is also home to some of the best schools of Lahore.
