Bashundhara residential area

Basundhara, Dhaka

Away from the bustling and busy city life, Basundhara stands out as one of the most beautiful residential areas in Dhaka. So it is no wonder that it is one of the most sought-after areas by people who love a comparatively quiet and luxurious life away from the crowded part of the city.

Though originally a part of the Vatara Thana, Basundhara is a part of Dhaka North City Corporation. You will find in the Basundhara area guide that it is a short distance from the 300-foot Purbachal Free Expressway and Kuril Flyover. It is also very close to Baridhara, another upper-class area.

The well-known Basundhara Group started the project of building this area in 1980. Over time, lands turned into high-rise buildings filled with apartments. And now, it is the first and largest well-planned neighborhood with a massive land area of 113 sq./km.

It is one of the main reasons many big real estate companies are investing in residential, commercial, and housing projects. The residential areas are divided into several blocks, and many properties (both land and apartments) are listed for sale.

Though the area mostly has high-priced housing, people from the middle and upper-middle classes also live inside and around it. Each area has its own amenities and facilities. There are many greeneries and playgrounds to make the areas appear like picture books. And the overall environment is suitable for people of all ages.

It is also a semi-commercial area with many offices, business companies, schools, colleges, parks, and shopping malls. The Jamuna Future Park, the largest shopping complex in South Asia, is located in Basundhara.
