ABOUT DHA, MULTAN
Even though Multan is Pakistan's 7th largest city and has immense historical, cultural, and economic importance, the city was lagging in terms of hosting a housing project that offered a luxurious lifestyle. All that changed with the launch of DHA, Multan, in March 2017. DHA appointed PROMAG Pvt. Ltd as the official affiliate of the entire project and tasked it to plan the society, along with overseeing the development of Education City, Health City, 3D Cinema, Mega Mall, Theme Park, Defence Club, Community Centre, and other amenities and facilities.
Occupying a landmass of 9,000 acres, DHA, Multan, is a much-needed, contemporary addition to the housing societies in the city of saints. This housing scheme is aimed at providing the same, high standard of living enjoyed by the residents of DHA Lahore, DHA Islamabad, DHA Karachi, and other DHA-backed projects across Pakistan. The society will introduce a property portfolio that will comfortably fit in the budget of low, moderate, and high-income buyers. The community has been planned innovatively, with particular attention given to safety concerns. The hallmark of Defence Housing Authority, Multan, is highly advanced development, security, and easy access to world-class facilities.
About the Location
Given the increasing population and the investment by the government of Pakistan in infrastructure development, Multan has expanded in nearly all directions. Therefore, Defence Housing Authority chose a location that had decent commute options already in place, easy connectivity to major routes, and convenient access to other amenities.
DHA, Multan is nestled between Bosan Road and Matital Road and is adjacent to Bahauddin Zakariya University, which is around 10 km away. Also, the Institute of Southern Punjab in Khayaban-e-Yusuf is just 2 minutes' drive away from the proposed DHA Multan Feeder Route (FR) bus stop. As per the given map, Qadirpur Rawan Bypass is on the east side of the society, whereas the Northern Bypass is on the south. Besides, DHA, Multan, is well-connected to major road networks and prime areas of the city via Bosan Road and Matital Road. Fortunately, there are quite a few wholly developed societies in the vicinity of Defence Housing Authority Multan, positioned on the east and west side of Bosan Road. Since these localities are already established, residents will also have easy access to their amenities and facilities. For instance, Khayaban-e-Yusuf and Buch Villas are pinned right opposite DHA Multan's location.
Planning and Development
Since DHA, Multan is spread across 9000 acres of pristine real estate, the society, therefore, features not only residential properties but also commercial properties that are ideal for different businesses, retail services, financial institutions, and other commercial activities.
