ABOUT JAWAD AVENUE, OKARA
Before spilling the beans on Jawad Avenue, Okara, it is necessary to know a little about the city in order to understand the grand scheme of things. Okara is the capital of Okara District which further comes under the Sahiwal Division. Located in Central Punjab, the city of Okara is roughly 45 minutes’ drive away from the Sahiwal city.
Unlike, Multan, Bahawalpur, Lahore or Faisalabad - the historic cities of Punjab that have seen the rise and fall of numerous empires, the history of the city of Okara does not predate the British Rule. The place where a city has been raised was once a forest of Okaanwala trees. During the British Rule, the forest was cut down to build the city of Okara and hence, you know how the city got its name “Okara.”
Fun fact: Okara is also the name of a food that is fervently used in traditional Chinese, Japanese and Korean cuisines.
Sitting in almost the centre of this city, Jawad Avenue is a partially-developed housing society that is located on the segment of the Grand Trunk Road that runs through Okara, also called the GT Road Okara and Lahore - Okara Road. The thoroughfare is one of the most important highways passing across the country and is one of the top 10 popular areas to buy and rent properties in Okara.
On and near the GT Road Okara, you can find some of the most popular property areas in Okara, for instance, the Green City, Al Raheem City, and Renala Khurd. GT Road Okara/Lahore – Okara Road is also known for hosting a plethora of commercial activities.
The GT Road Okara connects Jawad Avenue to the neighbouring cities of Sahiwal, Chichawatni, Khanewal and Multan on one end and Pattoki on the other.
Furthermore, the road links Jawad Avenue to Faisalabad via a series of Noorpur Thal – Shergarh Road, Rao Sikandar Iqbal Road and Okara – Faisalabad Road and to the historically-rich Depalpur Tehsil through Dipalpur – Okara Road.
Thus, it would not be wrong to say that by virtue of its location on the GT Road Okara, Jawad Avenue enjoys unmatched connectivity and access to almost all the amenities, basic or extra.
Ranked among the top 10 popular areas to buy property in, Jawad Avenue has houses that are move-in ready, capacious and don newer architecture along with crisp home designs.
