Lahore Lahore hai man, you've got bigger malls there I presume ( )
Anyways, if you feel its small, its small for ya!
why should anybody try to make you feel otherwise?

As far as I am concerned, way to go Dolmen Builders! thats one heck of a classy project you are making out of scratch and no foreign investment in Karachi!

If you are concerned about Advertising, I get a feeling that Dolmen follows the philiosophy that a good product sells itself. It needs no advertising. This is the feeling I get from looking at all the other Dolmen projects that have been made in the city so far. Dolmen Center, Dolmen Mall, their apartment projects, etc. They first complete them, then get people to occupy them. And they always stand out because of their construction and architecture.

I think this project was probably advertised, but very minimally. They also had representation over at the Housing Exhibition.

The brochure I have gives three more sites near DHA that Dolmen has indicated for future projects.

I personally love Lahore and its architecture and its people. Except for some immature ones particularly on this forum.
And I dont think I have ever said anything that is against Lahore on this forum.
