Gulberg Islamabad is primarily divided into two main sub-projects, Gulberg Residencia consisting of 7, 10, 12 Marla and 1 kanal residential plots and Gulberg Greens consisting of 4,5 and 10 kanal farm houses. The residential plots and farmhouses are adorned with expansive commercial areas spread along the main boulevards in addition to the designated commercial areas called Business Park, Business Square, Civic Center and D-Markaz.

The designated commercial areas in Gulberg Residencia have been organized as follows:
The entire block D of Gulberg Residencia has been reserved as the only commercial center in Residencia. The importance of this commercial center in terms of its location is evident from the fact that it is surrounded by five housing societies including OPF society, AJK society, WWF society, Naval Anchorage, Airport Society P-11 and Senate Society. The residents of almost all of these societies use the wide boulevard of Gulberg Residencia to travel to Islamabad Expressway as it is much faster than the small and distant entrances of those societies. This is why, we believe that D-Markaz Gulberg forms central to the surrounding societies promising a high footfall for commercial projects built in this region.
The commercial plots reserved on both sides of Gulberg Expressway connecting Gulberg Residencia with Gulberg Greens are called “Blue Area.” This commercial strip holds the same geographical advantage as the D-Markaz as mentioned above. It is home to many great real estate projects in the making, including Gulberg Rabi Center and The Magnus Mall.
