The structure of Gulshan-e-Hadeed was carefully designed by Russian engineers. Residential houses are built in such a way that the double road, which encircles the whole area, faces "C" block bungalows, which are the largest in area. Behind "C" block bungalows and facing the double roads that pass across the area are "B" block houses which are of middle size. The core of the area is made up of small "A" block houses, which are the most numerous type. By now, the houses facing the main artery of the area have been commercialized by owners, so now shops are present on both sides of the main road that passes through the area.
