      Arshad Khan, I was personally intersted earlier in Phase 8 E block 8 marla commercial but then due to some other priorities I could not decide, the prices 7-8 months back were 210-215 , today I checked are showing 250.

      If you have budget this could be good investment. As its 8 marls plot, so good size shops and appartments can be made for rental, its on main road so will attract brands and banks etc + future constructions including the ring road could further boost this.

          Bahria announced fully developed 8m commercial in C-1 Bahria Enclave. I do not have details, but you can check. They are giving possession on down payment, installments in 1.5 years. No tax, no transfer fee.

          Sounds interesting!

            Isloo - thanks for letting me know about this option. I’ve checked Bahria website but can’t find anything there. Will you recommend who should I contact to get more information about this C1 option. Thanks

              BT, DH, GG and alike's commercials sounds tempting on the face value and installment options. Its starts with exclusivity but the greed to dig out commercial on every second inch creates a supply that far exceeds the demand. I am speaking, in general as many have suffered due to devaluation, unless some specific project is exclusive and has the right proportion of population around to keep the commercial relevant.

              As a comparative example, Proposer CDA's sector shop in terms of %age of ROI is far better then some entire commercial project/plot. I may have a limited view but most in BTS/DHs and recently GG are stuck with their commercials. Stuck in a sense that not getting what was expected and anticipated.


              The trick is to buy, hold, expect that it appreciates. The problem starts when these developers after promising you exclusive commercial sell out next piece of land as new launched commercial, just a few meters away from you, getting some easy money but compromising already sold commercial.


              This by no means is to dishearten but to show the flip side of the temptation to installments based commercials. Visit for yourself to see how small to mid sized investors are stuck. I reiterate again this is based on recent observations and insights from few who have first hand experience, I would be happy to be stand corrected on missing any obvious!

                Thanks Imtiaz bhai for highlighting this side of the equation as well. To be honest I’ve no personal experience but I was just thinking along these lines as well that with the greed of Bahria and others they would be more likely doing this with the commercials.

                  With two years time frame, you may consider Capital Smart City. Their overseas and Executive blocks are balloted and supply of commercial plots in market is very less so the demand is good. CSC map is showing limited number of commercial area and in case they stick with this map with this much commercial area then it will appreciate in future.

                  CSC development work pace is going on with a decent pace and possessions are expected to be delivered by society from mid year 2020.
