Gulistan-e-Jauher is home to a very large population. The number of apartments and high-rise residential buildings in the area is probably second to none in Karachi. The area has been under constant upgrade in terms of road and other civil infrastructure for a very long time now.

On the eve of Eid, the famous Jauher chowrangi got a traffic signal. The entire surrounding of the signal still needs to be completed in terms of road carpeting, cat eyes etc. However, the various roads that connect to this chowrangi have been recently opened to traffic and using the smooth roads has been a pleasure for the people who frequent to the area and have seen the bumps and dust as permanent features of the roads.

With the fly-over connecting the major entrance to the area (Jauher Mor) in full swing of construction and other traffic facilitations being put in place, the locality should get a long awaited respite.

Share with us your experiences and thoughts on how the administration has done their job in the case of Gulistan-e-Jauher. Was the wait worthwhile? How does this reflect on the performance of the area’s political entities that enjoy a lot of visible local support?

    I have not seen or experiene it myself but my family informs me that the construction has been going on in full swing and things have started to look better; I would say a job well done by the local authorities and kudos to everyone involved in making it happen from Mustafa Kamal all the way to the workers who are working on this project.


    It depends where you want to buy that. Apartments in “Saima Pride”, “Saima Classic” and other newly built apartment on the main Rashid Minhas Road will cost you a lot. For example, a relative of mine bought an apartment in Saima Classic for 21 lakhs @ the time of booking (5-6 years ago); now the same apartment is going for 80 lakhs!!! Newly built apartments (2 years old) right next to the millennium mall started from 60 lakhs and now they will cost you around 80-90 lakhs.

    An apartment in Saima Pride would cost you from 25-35 lakhs depending on which block (A, B, etc) you want to live in!

    You can get cheaper apartments in Noman Avenue and other “not-so-decent” apartment complexes. You might also want to try apartment complexes near Perfume Choke, those might cost you around 8-15 lakhs.
