Food Affairs & Burger Fix Are Re-located

Following the re-opening of Smokehouse Grill restaurant this week. Two more eat-out places re-opened with a new location after a few days of their closing. I already wrote about the re-opening of Smokehouse Grill restaurant here and told you that former owner had sold out the restaurant and new management would re-open it anytime soon. Now, here are the two more restaurants which are moved to new locations.

 

Food Affairs New Location:

For the first time, Food Affairs restaurant was opened in last Ramadan before Eid in Bahria Town. At the time of its opening, they had arranged an event to celebrate the grand opening. You can check the details by clicking here. The previous location was 175-B, Jasmine Block, Sector C, commercial zone, opposite Dubai Tower and near to Jasmine Mall. 

 

Now, last week, after a long struggle of almost 5 months, Food Affairs is re-opened in Tulip block, Sector C. Behind Bahria Gold and Country Club and adjacent to Mauj Tandoor and The Great Mall. However, there is a huge difference between the previous and current venue. Previously, they have had a complete floor with enough space and had a way better ambiance as compared to the current location. This time it is just a simple banner at the front without any decor and seems zero freshness. Maybe it is just another start they will improve it as they had done before. Well, I’ve attached before and after picture of the front so you can get a clear idea. 

Burger Fix New Location:

Burger Fix started serving in May this year at Sector B, Shaheen Block, D market. But, they have closed this location and re-opened it in Sector C. Burger Fix is now fully operational in Jasmine Block, Sector C, near to Jasmine Mall and opposite to Dubai Tower. 

Taana Baana Is Active

One more clothing brand has been added for ladies after a long time in Bahria Town. I already wrote about it here. In the mid of August, Taana Baana had placed its opening soon banner at their outlet. So, the two months after, Taana Baana has finally opened Bahria’s outlet on last Sunday. The road-streamers of Taana Baana’s opening are still be seen in Town especially in Sector D. They were offering up to 35% discount on their entire collections which I doubt may not be available now. 

 

Location:

Taana Baana is located at 144-B, Jasmine Block, Sector C. Near to Jasmine Mall.

Demolishing Of Houses & Plazas

The construction of more than 22 km long Lahore Ring Road Southern Loop( SL-1 and SL-2) was completed and opened for traffic on December 22nd, 2017. It has been operational for traffic near to Adda Plot, Raiwind Road and connecting to Kamahan near DHA Phase-5. The residents of Bahria Town Lahore already benefitting from this route. Because the traveling time between DHA, Airport and Bahria Town has drastically decreased. It takes hardly 20 to 25 minutes to reach Airport from Bahria Town Lahore via Ring Road.

 

After that, almost everyone has been in a discussion about the construction of Ring Road(SL-3), which will be going to pass through Bahria Town and neighboring society NFC Phase-2. The third section of proposed Lahore Ring Road Southern Loop will connect Raiwind Road with Multan Road. Previously, according to some news, this project will be 8 Km long and it will have three bridges, two interchanges, two underpasses, and 14 drain culverts. But, now, most of the people assuming it will only have two interchanges, one at Multan Road and other near to NFC Phase-2. 

Route Inside Bahria Town Lahore:

Lahore Ring Road(SL-3) in Bahria Town will start from Golf View Residencia. It will pass through Tulip Extension and Rafi Block at an elevation of 300 ft near the Grand Jamya Mosque. Furthermore, it will shift towards Janiper Block and will end up onto the Canal Road and then NFC Phase-2. 

 

Demolishing Of Houses & Plazas:

Well, this is the only general overview of the project and had been surfacing for months. Now, after a prolonged wait, which already caused many issues and bewilderment for property owners. Today, in the morning, the government machinery has been arrived in Bahria Town and started demolishing houses and other commercial plazas that are on the route of Ring Road SL-3. Approximately, more than 480 residential plots and houses will be demolished in Janiper Block, EE Block, Iqbal Block, Overseas Extension, and Tulip Extension Block. And, around 60 commercial plots and plazas will be eaten by Ring Road SL-3.

 

Here are the videos and pictures attached below which were taken today: 

Consequential’s:

Well, definitely it is going to be a great complication for the nearby residents. This demolishing of buildings and completion of Ring Road in Bahria Town would take roughly 8 months or more(according to the government officials reports). Moreover, due to the close proximity of homes, you will face air pollution and no doubt will be badly affected by noise. Also, it would create hurdles and you will be required to minimize traveling towards this specific area. On the other hand, though I am not a real estate expert I guess it will considerably effect on the property business. For this, you can contact below numbers and get the experienced analysis and inside stories relating to the property.

The Long Awaited Flyover

One of the major and chaotic issue of Bahria Town we have been facing for years is the entry/exit point at Shahkam Chowk. We have discussed it several times with a hope that sooner or later the construction of flyover or underpass at Shahkam Chowk will start. We have also updated all other available alternate routes in Bahria Town here. But, despite approval of this project various times by Lahore Development Authority from since 2015 till now nothing had happened.

 

However, again another notification has been circulating on social media about the approval of flyover at Shahkam Chowk by city authorities. The notification is attached below. According to some real estate consultants, the flyover will linkup Shakam to Sharakpur and Shahdara. The project will be around 16 km’s and it will be completed in one year. The estimated cost will be more than 11 billion and the government has also acquired 200 kanal of land. 

 

Well, there is no doubt that the residents of Bahria Town would be greatly relieved once the project will start and complete. But, the thing is we have heard and listened to this news for the last 4 years. So, we still need to hold our horses until the groundwork starts out there.
