Area Guide Westridge-2, Rawalpindi

Westridge is a residential area in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, which dates back to 1880 when the British Army first came into this area and established its cantonment in Rawalpindi, amongst a few other Military Units.

Initially, a few units of Signals Battalion were established here in 1916. Later on, a few other military units were moved in an effort to strengthen the hold of the British Army in Rawalpindi. These units consisted of Frontier Force, Air Defense, and Artillery. Later on, Special Communication Organization was also transferred here.

In 1960, cantonment allowed the establishment of 3 housing schemes, namely Westridge 1, Westridge 2, and Westridge 3 in this area. As a result, Army Housing Directorate (Renamed to DHA in 1979) announced residential schemes for Army and Civilian personnel. As the population increased in due course of time and thousands of houses were constructed in the area to allow a high-end lifestyle community that offers cultural as well as educational facilities. At present, it is among the most expensive residential areas in Rawalpindi, which is partly due to its proximity to Islamabad.
