DHA Valley Islamabad is a joint venture of DHA Islamabad, Bahria Town Islamabad, and Habib Rafiq (pvt) Limited. The society is meant to provide a luxurious living to average people by developing a secured gated community with parks, commercial shopping places, schools, mosques, hospitals and other utilities of life. Residential plots of 5 marla and 8 marla in each block were provided at a very low price for general public on 3 years installment plan. The project was launched in 2008 and thousands of plots (around 50,000) were allotted to the applicants of this project. Such a large number of allotments later proved to be one of the major blunders on part of Defence Housing Authority.


DHA Valley Islamabad is a housing project initiated by Defence Housing Authority in Islamabad just next to DHA Phase 2 Extension on Islamabad Highway. The society is connected with Islamabad Expressway through a six-lane DHA Expressway that covers all major phases of DHA Islamabad. The expressway is under construction at present and expected to be completed within a year or so.

DHA Valley Future

DHA Valley Islamabad seems to have a very bright future from this year onwards. The development work is in full swing and it is expected that the society will announce possession of Bluebell and Rose or Tulip Blocks this year. As soon as the possession is announced in any of the blocks, plot Prices will shoot up by 2 to 3 time as compared with the current prices which are the lowest in any of the DHA project and even less than any other society in that area.
