ABOUT PHASE 1, NFC LAHORE
NFC Phase 1, Lahore, is a fully developed housing society located on Canal Road, between Wapda Town and Valencia Town. Tariq Garden Housing Scheme is also located nearby. The society consists of 2 phases and is equipped with all the necessary infrastructure requirements, commercial zones, business avenues, and essential amenities including water, power, gas and wide roads. NFC Phase 1 comprises beautiful houses developed with modern architecture. The cooperative housing society, established primarily for the employees of National Fertilizer Corporation, also offers properties to people who aren’t associated with the company.
People living in lesser developed cities or rural areas mostly have to travel to the nearest big city in search of hospitals, schools, and jobs. Owing to this fact, NFC Phase 1 was developed keeping in mind the population migrating from rural areas to Lahore. Investing in NFC Phase 1 will likely result in better returns over the years, all thanks to the facilities offered to create and sustain a healthy environment.
