Luxury living is more than just opulent design and finishes; it is having access to modern amenities along with other high-end amusements. Similarly, a high price tag alone won’t put a property in the luxury category — it needs to be refined and exclusive. Many housing schemes in Lahore latched on to the luxury label in recent years to cater to the changing needs and tastes of the population. Among the several districts that make up the city’s most exclusive neighbourhoods, Paragon City Housing Scheme, Lahore is one such example that redefines luxury living.
As with any affluent housing society, custom designs, meticulous attention to detail, and facilities that justify the hike in prices are what attract the upper crust. Paragon City boasts similar amenities and features that many homebuyers value — and are willing to pay a premium price for. Established in 2003, this was a project launched by Paragon City Private Limited (Pvt.) Ltd.
Graana.com, Pakistan’s smartest property portal, has outlined all that you need to know about one of Lahore’s most coveted neighbourhoods.
