An old society, Pakistan Employees Cooperatively Housing Society (PECHS) has now come into focus due to the launch of Islamabad International Airport and expansion of Islamabad towards Zone 2. The afforable price is what makes PECHS attractive for the genuine buyers or long term investors.

It is the closest society to the Islamabad International Airport and compared to other societies that are also near to the airport, it is priced significantly lower.

Development and Possession

The good thing is the availability of basic utilities such as water, gas and electricity. However, development has been relatively slow over the years. But because of the airport, PECHS has come into limelight. Development of Blocks K and M has already been completed and possession is also available. Moreover, few commercial areas have also been built in the housing society.
