Located in the heart of Lahore Cantonment and designed to look like a traditional haveli, Park Lane Tower comprises the Mall of Lahore, corporate offices and residences. The Mall of Lahore, which has become synonymous for the Tower, was opened to the public three years ago; it introduced Lahore to mall culture and has since changed the city’s shopping experience.

Live, work, shop… Park Lane Tower has 60 serviced apartments, a private swimming pool, a spa and a fully equipped gym. The complex has two floors of offices that are fully equipped with state of the art business facilities; several offices are already occupied by multinational companies. And of course there’s the Mall of Lahore…

Brands abound… Mall of Lahore is virtually the only high end retail experience in the central Cantt area and is considered a fashionable shopping destination. The Mall houses all the major brands and then some. Almost every fashion franchise is to be found there along with high-end fine jewellers and local designer and branded-wear boutiques. Main attractions include Accessorize, Chinyere, CrossRoads Guess, Heritage Jewellers, Khaadi, Levis, Limelight, Next, Solitaire, Stoneage and Zahra Ahmad.

Lots for the tots… There is a wide variety of children’s clothing and toy shops, including Baby Shop, Bumble & Bumble, Early Learning Centre, Mothercare and Humpty Dumpty – a toy shop that specialises in educational toys. The Mall’s play area is especially popular with the little ones; moms find it quite convenient to drop their little ones off there to enjoy the rides while they do their groceries at the Green Valley hypermarket located within the Mall.

Eat your heart out… The choice of restaurants and cafes at the Mall of Lahore does justice to the city’s foodie reputation. Take your iPad along and have a solitary coffee at Gloria Jean’s, meet friends for lunch at Maroush or treat your kids to McDonald’s or a bucket of fries from OPTP. Can’t decide on any one place to eat? Head to the food court and choose from an extensive array of cuisines.

In a nutshell… Park Lane Tower is a real estate trendsetter. It offers state-of-the-art facilities, good security and best plenty of parking, which makes the shopping experience all the more enjoyable. n
