Sohna, now known as South of Gurgaon has emerged as a one stop destination for small budget residential projects, abutting the developed regions of Gurgaon. The existing and proposed economic developments are generating housing demand for South of Gurgaon (extensive coverage). This demand is not only from end users, who are searching homes at most feasible locations from their work centres but also from investors who are eyeing the market for capital gains. To cater to this upcoming demand, 25 developers launched their residential projects in the most eyed location. We visited Arete by ILD, a residential development planned on 12 acre of land by the renowned, International Land Developers (ILD) in South of Gurgaon. At Arete, ILD has put on offer 700 units, coming up in 8 towers. Arete will feature a unique 3 acre central park and unobstructed views of the Aravallis. Further to add to its unique appeal these 8 towers are anywhere from 20 floors high to 28 floors high, this allows for maximisation of views and circulation of air.
Locating Arete by ILD
Arete by ILD is positioned in sector-33 which is the first residential sector of South of Gurgaon as per the Sohna Master Plan-2031. There are multiple roads that lend connectivity to South of Gurgaon and link it to various regions within the NCR. This region is well connected to NH-8 via NH248A and Northern Peripheral Road (upcoming). Sohna Road and Southern Peripheral Road render ample connectivity to Arete by ILD.
The Golf Course Extension Road further links Arete to Golf Course Road and MG Road. The business districts of Gurgaon (Cybercity, Udyog Vihar, Sohna Road) can be reached well within a 30-35 minutes drive. Less traffic, developed roads and existing connectivity are some of the major reasons, users are preferring housing at South of Gurgaon over other newer micro-markets in Gurgaon. This region is also linked with the Kundli-Manesar-Palwal Expressway (136 km stretch connecting Palwal to Panipat) a part of which is already operational and the rest goes functional in an year. Connectivity to Arete by ILD will be strengthened due to a 60m wide proposed road that connects Sohna directly to Sector-63 in Gurgaon.
Metro may not provide last mile connectivity to Arete by ILD for now, but existing HUDA City Centre Metro station can be reached within 20-25 minutes from project site, and the nearest rapid metro station will be the Sector-55/56 metro station on the Golf Course road which can be accessed within similar time-frame.
Arete by ILD : The Neighbourhood
With most upcoming locations, the issue faced is lack of amenities in the surroundings and with futuristic developments livability becomes a far sight. That’s the real plus point for the location, as the neighbourhood is already in advanced stages of social development. The education infrastructure – GD Goenka World School, Pathways World School, Ryan International School, KR Mangalam University lie in close vicinity of Arete by ILD. A number of retail chains like Big Bazaar, Shopper’s Stop, Aditya Birla More etc ease the daily convenience for residents. Renowned and trusted names of hospitals like Max, Fortis, Artemis, Park can be easily accessed within 15 to 20 minutes of drive. Luxury hotels including Gateway Resort by Taj, Westin Sohna Resort are in close proximity of project site. As this area gets further inhabited many of these conveniences will also become closer.
