Lahore is love. Yes, it is. Living in suburban Lahore or in the dense oldish city has its pros and cons. It’s fun anyways; however, living in a commercial hub that reeks of luxury and connectivity, is an outstanding feeling. Gulberg is an excellent example of a commercial hub that has all the benefits and almost no drawbacks. Let’s discuss the joy of living in the Manhattan (Gulberg) of our New York (Lahore).
Benefit #1: Location, Location, Location
If Lahore is the heart of Pakistan, Gulberg is the heart of Lahore. Smack in the middle, Gulberg is the most central location of the city. Its access to the two sides of the city is a few kilometers away. If you have business in the oldish Lahore or a meeting in suburban DHA, you are positioned right in the middle.
Straight signal-free or signal-easy corridors to residential areas of Model Town, Garden Town, Faisal Town, and Johar Town can make your life less chaotic and more subtle. If you want to go to the old city, catch the route of Jail Road or Ferozpur road and you find yourself at the gates of the pre-partition Lahore in just fifteen minutes. Take the metro or get the canal route to wherever you want to go in Lahore. If you live here, you live everywhere. Access is everything these days and Gulberg has it all.
Benefit # 2: The Commercial Center of the City
Gulberg has transformed into a commercial hub of Lahore. Be it corporate offices or shopping brand headquarters, Gulberg is nothing but a huge Business Center. It has Liberty Market, MM Alam Road, Main & Mini Market, Kasuri Road, and the mighty Main Boulevard as the shopping mecca for all social classes. Gulberg is home to modern shopping centers like Alfatah and Imtiaz, and also retro places like Shoppe and Enem Store. Apparels mega centers like Liberty, Auriga, and Lahore center attract huge fashion-hungry crowds every day. We have Hafeez Center here, the business central of gadget buying and selling.
Gulberg houses a lot of corporate offices and various coworking spaces, making it a daily destination for thousands of white-collar people. Our very own Zameen Head Office and Sales offices are located here in Gulberg. With the upcoming Central Business District, the significance of Gulberg will skyrocket in the coming years. Living in Gulberg can save travel time and fuel costs for people who work in this busy commercial center.
Benefit # 3: The Ultimate Food Destination
Gulberg is home to the best restaurants and street food Dhabas of Lahore. Foodies of all types, be it fast food lovers to desi khaba hunters, Gulberg can be your final destination. Paratha rolls of liberty, samosas of Ghalib Market, halwa puri nashta of Capri and Bundu Khan, and Fish fry of Bashir Darul Mahi at Hussain Chowk are some of the desi food powerhouses you don’t want to miss. The MM Alam fine dining experience of PF Changs, Mandarin Kitchen, Cosa Nostra, etc. is also a great perk for dwellers of Gulberg. The Gaddafi Stadium food street is a phenomenon in itself where variety meets taste. The fast food scene is at its best as all major local and international brands are situated here including McDonald’s, KFC, Howdy, OPTP, Subway, Broadway Pizza, Domino’s are many more.
Living in Gulberg means awesome taste and variety. You are not going to get bored with food here, ever.
Benefit # 4: The Educational Center
Gulberg is filled with educational institutions. From daycares and kindergartens to colleges and universities, it has it all. Almost all popular school systems like Beaconhouse, LGS, LACAS, City School, etc. are located in Gulberg with their multiple campuses. Various government and private colleges are also present here. There is very easy access to female educational institutions like Kinnard, Lahore College, APWA, and Home Economics College.

Benefit # 5: Modern Urban Amenities
Gyms, Cinemas, Parks, Health Care Facilities, Mosques, Govt. Facilities, you name it. All amenities are abundantly available here. There is absolutely no shortage of activities for you and your family when you live in Gulberg
I can go on and on with the benefits of living in Gulberg. The only problem is that there is a shortage of housing here. This shortage is being fulfilled by vertical housing projects in and around Gulberg. While you live here, the value of your property will appreciate exponentially as well.
