New Fresh Meat, Fruits And Vegetable Shop

The Great Mall is a grocery store in Bahria Town. It is famous because of less price and beautiful building. It is situated near to Bahria Golf and Country Club. Now they have taken initiative of fresh meat, fruits and vegetables with the name of TGM Taza.

TGM TAZA:

TGM TAZA is about having fresh meat, fruits and vegetables. TGM has started all these products in their already existing place for a while ago. It is going good and now they have decided to give this section a proper space and name.

This will help to expand their already existing setup of fresh meat, fruits and vegetables.

Other Options:

We already have few shops like these but they all are sub standard. One good effort is done by Organic Shop though they haven’t work on their core specialty of Organic products. They haven’t place the organic products till now.

Secondly these both shops have a long distance and will serve the different areas.

Thirdly I’ve seen complaining about the freshness of products in Organic Shop. Let’s see how TGM TAZA will serve their customers.

When To Start:

TGM is planning to start this expansion from this weekend. We’ll have a good option in less price fresh vegetables, fruits and meat in a nice environment. Hope to see good results and healthy service to people of Bahria Town.

Cock N Bull Opening Soon

Cock ‘n’ Bull is one of the best shawarma restaurant chain. It has many branches in Lahore including Johar Town, Model Town and DHA branch. I love this brand shawarma because of their white sauce.

Location:

It is situated on main boulevard, Sector C commercial zone. It is right next to Mega Brands shoe outlet, near to Bank of Punjab.

Right now they haven’t place the board over there.

When To Open:

Right now we don’t know the exact dates but they have placed the billboard on Jaliana Gate. Hope to see the opening soon.

Entrance And Exit Of Bahria Town

There is hell of a mess at entrance and exit of Bahria Town. Main Canal Road has a huge traffic block at Shahkam chowk. People spend some times hours to pass through the Shahkam Chowk.

Jaliana Gate:

Bahria has started to make out most of what it already have. Bahria is working on Jaliana exit. Bahria made few changes at that side to bring ease to people.

  1. Bahria opened one more gate at Jaliana side
  2. Bahria take down the corner place (where you have to pass one by one). Now both side traffic can move at a same time.
  3. Bahria carpeted the road where needed.
  4. Bahria construct a road to Dream Gardens bridge.
  5. Bahria place there guards at Bridge so traffic can move one by one.

Above changes has made a good traffic flow but still we require much to happen.

Canal Road Construction:

Bahria is leveling up the Canal Road. For few days traffic is moving one way or through the other side of Canal. Much work is done and less is remain. Hope we’ll get a clear road in couple of days.

Golf Exit or Mirza Chowk Entrance:

Many people have also started to use the Golf exit which go through the Nargis block. That passage is clear, connect you with Raiwind Road by passing through the BNU (Beaconhouse National University).

Bahria has constructed the carpeted road where required and you save much of your time if you have to move through that side of the city.

Conclusion:

Though we have three above mentioned exits but still the Shahakam Chowk is most important one. Govt. has approved a bridge on Defense Road which we hope to see constructed within this year. I guess that will ease down the load, until then we have to make a good use of other exits which are quite maintained now.

Bahria Orchard Phase 4

There is much fuzz in property market of Bahria Town about the Bahria Orchard Phase 4. Every dealer is booking the plots over there. Bahria Town is booking plots from their offices as well. Bahria  has also promoted this project by itself.

Bahria Town has just now released the map of Bahria Orchard Phase 4. Above is the picture of map. It is a huge map and property dealers of Bahria has lot to do for coming couple of years.

Investment Tip:

If you wan’t to invest in Bahria Orhcard Phase 4, then go for 1 Kanal plots. 1 Kanal plots are limited in number. Good in location.

Check out the quick short analysis of Bahria Orchard Phase 4 map at this link.

Barbecue At Rose Garden

Bahria Management has given a place to do your barbecue without any hassle. You don’t have to bring anything. Come with your meat and you’ll get all other things from Bahria Canteen.

You’ll get coal, grills, disposable plates, glasses etc. from Bahria Canteen on cash payment.

Bahria Canteen:

I was wondering what Bahria management is constructing in between of Rose Garden. Now I’ve come to know that it is canteen. However I believe it is not active but will be soon. We’ve also come to know the purpose of this canteen.

McDonald’s Is Active Now

McDonald’s is functional now.Plus this is 24 hour branch. It will be good for us to visit any time but problem for houses nearby. They will face the commercial activity round the clock.

Construction Speed:

10 days ago, I was telling you that McDonald’s is under construction. Now they are ON. McDonald’s has constructed this massive building in such a short time that it is a record in Bahria Town. They have worked day and night and completed above building around 3 months approx.

Roop Singhar Opening Today

Roop Singhar is a famous cosmetic shop. It’s most famous shop is in liberty market, though it has other branches as well.

I’ve seen gents variety on Roop Singhar’s road hoardings but mostly it will be ladies shop. I guess ladies will be pleased to have this specialty cosmetic shop in Bahria Town Lahore.

Location:

It is situated in Sector-C commercial zone. Right in front of Jasmine Mall.

Edited: Sorry, there ain’t any discount offer mentioned on any promotion.

New Bakery Shop Opening Soon

I love chocolates so the name of bakery inspires me much. I’m waiting for it to start.

Location:

It is right in front of Jasmine Mall, Sector C commercial zone, Bahria Town Lahore.

When To Start:

It seems to start soon because they have completed all the interior. Their glass shelves have been placed. Above picture is little old, now much work is done.

I don’t have the exact date but I guess it will start in remaining 11 days of 2016.

McDonald’s is Under Construction

Yes you read it right! Finally McDonald’s is coming to Bahria Town Lahore. It is one of the brand we all have been waiting for. I like it because of it’s ice cream. Moreover they really have clean kitchen and deliver clean food.

When To Start:

It is heard that they are planning to launch their Bahria branch on New Year Eve. It seems to be a really tough target because we have only 12 days left. Though they working day and night and they have built the above building within days.

Let’s see if it’s true and they really start their branch on New Year Eve.

Effect On Commercial Property:

McDonald’s branch has also effect the rise in prices of commercial nearby. 2 marla commercial of CC block has raised from 8 million to 15 million only because of McDonald’s. However prices have settle down on 13 to 14 million right now. This is a very high price for a 2 marla commercial plot.

I believe if commercial size would be nearly 4 or 5 marla, then it could be a better option for other brands to jump in. I don’t think that any international food chain will start their outlet in just 2 marla commercial. So I guess this raise is temporarily and price will fell down a bit more.
