ABOUT PHASE 2, FAZAIA HOUSING SCHEME LAHORE
Fazaia Housing Scheme (FHS) Phase 2 is one of the top residential projects in Lahore. It is a secure, convenient and ultra-modern housing society located on Sunder Industrial Estate Road near Sharif Medical City.
It is an LDA approved project and its layout includes all the necessary facilities within the society, such as schools, hospitals, parks, malls, plazas, community centres, graveyard, etc. FHS Phase 2 is divided into A, B, C and D Blocks, offering residential and commercial plots for sale.
History of Development
The Pakistan Air Force (PAF) sought to provide homes to their men on easy instalments. The task was assigned to Directorate of Housing in 1989, resulting in the launch of Fazaia Housing Scheme Rawalpindi, the first ever jewel in their crown.
Later that year, Fazaia Tarnol was also established. These projects received tremendous response from the public and set new benchmarks for the real estate industry to follow. PAF is a trusted name in Pakistan, for all the right reasons, so citizens including government employees, army men, people from defence forces, investors and businesspersons invested in the projects.
It was then deemed necessary to create a separate governing body for the real estate projects initiated by PAF. In 1996, Directorate of Estate Projects was established and they successfully completed the development work of Tarnol and Fazaia Rawalpindi.
The hard work and determination of Directorate of Estate paid off, thus the head of Directorate was nominated and promoted as Assistant Chief of Army Staff (ACAS). ACAS is now responsible for construction and development, maintenance, record keeping of the members, transfer of plots and financial management of all the housing projects under PAF’s wing.
