Latest Commercial Trends
In recent times change of preference in shoppers/households behavior is evident in Lahore especially when it comes to the choice of Commercial areas, as standalone commercial areas are becoming less popular, whereas commercial areas which are in close proximity to residential are getting more traction, data shows that once prime shopping hubs of Lahore e.g. Shopping plazas and malls in Liberty Market and Gulberg MM Alam road are all getting lesser and lesser foot prints. Multiple reasons can be attributed to this change, but one stand out cause of this decline is shoppers preference for more convenient and accessible high quality commercial areas and retail plazas within their own neighborhood. Urbanization has made city of Lahore segmented, and commute cost and time is something people also take into account now.

Timelines for Maturity
DHA Phases 1-4 had been the face of DHA for almost three decades and one time considered as the most posh areas of Lahore along with Y block commercial market of phase 3 as the hub of commercial activity for many years as far as DHA commercial is concerned, but after prices touching all time high, in last 4 to 5 years momentum of activity has shifted to phase 5.
Phase 5 gained lot of traction initially but mainly for its residential sector. Even there housing prices and rate of home sales, new and existing, has probably peaked, and it’s not going to roll over and prices will remain stable for some time and then will gently decline. Civic commercial areas of phase 5 never really challenged the stronghold of Y block commercial market of phase 3, the reason being the layout of Phase 5 CCAs, they lack parking space, roads are not wide enough and with majority of plazas limited to 4 marlas, Commercial activity never really took off there and prime source of traffic also remain limited to the residents and scope of CCAs of phase 5 become more of a utility markets rather than true commercial markets which could be considered as retail and service sector hub.
Changing Dynamics of DHA Lahore
In next 3 to 5 years, dynamics of DHA Lahore both residential and commercial sectors are about to change completely. As Phases 1-4 of DHA are losing losing their attractiveness for investments and even for living purposes new buyers are moving towards newly built phases of DHA, gradually Phase 5 will also slowdown and growth will become stagnant eventually. And then all the eyes would be on newly built phases 6, 7 and 8 of DHA. In phase 6 around 50-60% houses are complete, construction of houses in Phase 8 and Phase 7 is also picking up. Out of these phases for Residential and living purposes Phase 8 will stick out, whereas for business activities
Commercial Plazas of Fairways Raya Defence Commercials along with Phase 8 Broadway commercial area would be two most noticeable and promising commercials areas within DHA in coming years and will become regional Hub of business activity in DHA Lahore.
It’s very important to understand the strategic positioning of Broadway road and Avenue 8, how they are linked together via Avenue 1 and then connect to ring road. Broadway commercials of phase 8 are located right at the entry point of Phase 8 from the ring road whereas Fairways commercial are located on the 150 ft wide junction of Avenue 1 and Avenue 8 where phase 6 ends . Within these two points majority of phase 6 and phase 8 falls, total developed area of phase 6 and phase 8 proper is over 40,000 kanals. Here one can argue that there are CCAs within phase 6 and Phase 8 along with Mb commercials of Phase 6 to cater business and commercial needs of residents and outsiders, but important thing to understand is the location and Scope of CCAs vs Fairways Defence Raya commercials and Broadway Phase 8 commercials.

Prices of 8 marla commercials in phase 5 is around 24- 27 crores depending on the location, now these are the CCAs of phase 5, where business activity never really flourished in all these years the way it was expected in spite of all price hype, the reason being the limited scope of CCAs which can never become the centerpiece of business activity like proper dedicated commercial areas. Prices of phase 6 and phase 8 Broadway commercials are right now around 10-12 crores.
