Heights of Boulevard Heights Lahore
If you are a living in the city that is architectural and academic capital of Pakistan i.e. Lahore, You must be aware of the giant white building under construction on the busiest boulevard of the city. If you’re still in doubt, i guarantee that your mind is flashing you the views from Main Boulevard of Gulberg 2. Yes! You are at the exact location and I’m sure that most of you were having no doubt.
This building is situated almost in the mid of the road starting from liberty round about and heading to jail road, comes on the right according to the direction told and is under construction from more than a year. Gulberg is the central point for businesses in Lahore and this building; because of its huge size is so much attention gaining for every person passing by.
I was also facing the same curiosity from several days and yesterday morning i decided to visit the building from inside. In the break time of my office i took one of my colleagues “Atif Ahmad” along with me, told him the plan and walked toward the building. As my office was really near we reached the building in 3 to 4 minutes. The title of building was Boulevard Heights and was perfect according to its height since standing inside the drive through area outside the building i was not able to see the top of the building without bending my neck to its limit.
Well we stepped inside inquiring about the booking office and in a tricky manner passed by it to move toward the upper floors. The inside area was all to be finished with hundreds of workers and engineers working on it. On reaching the fifth floor we found an open area where we were able to view all the surrounding. We took some photographs, you can see them below. Here we met a friendly boy working as labor for central air conditioning things. He provided us with much of information. He told us that the floor we were on was the end of shopping area and above were apartments.
There were 4 basements of the building; we were able to see all of them below and also the top of the building from the same point. See the photographs below
After having these views our excitement, attraction and passion all were dedicated to one thing and that was reaching the roof top. There was no lift installed so we decided to take stairs. That boy guided us the path to other stairs and we started our way to heights. On every floor there were windows beside the stairs, some were open and yet to be completed while most of them were finished with fitted frames and sliding glass. It was really fearful to pass by those windows which were open ended here are some pictures of from our journey to top.
Floors and floors passed and finally the top came. We reached the 21st floor which was the last one. The most annoying thing that we faced on reaching was the lock on the door on roof. Although we knew this before because that working boy had informed us about this but he said that there will be a security guard on duty who will unlock the door to let you visit roof but unfortunately he was not there. Well from that big window we had the view we were rushing for. Did some enjoyment, took some clicks and decided to go back and reach the office in time and left from there. Below are the photographs we taken from 21st story of the boulevard heights.
It was so much enjoyment in the leisure time. Hope you have also enjoyed reading this and watching the photographs. Thanks to all of you for your time.
