How about having an apartment right in the lap of an IT park? Located at the centre of Electronic City and sharing the neighbourhood with Wipro Corporate Office, stands a majestic housing project – Shriram Signiaa.
Location & Connectivity
When I planned to visit the project, it took me no more than half an hour from Silk Board to reach the location by bus. Infosys is just a kilometre away from the location and Wipro is just in the neighbourhood.
On one side of the Neeladri road stand the buildings of Wipro and just on the other side, we have Shriram Signiaa. One can reach Schneider, Siemens, Wipro, Infosys, HP and HCL just by walk.
I am sure you will believe that the presence of these many companies will make the location of Shriram Signiaa look prime.
Shriram Signiaa: Master Plan & Specifications
The towers have 13 floors and is spread over 4.3 acres of land. The entire project is divided into two blocks, viz. Block 1 and Block 2. A total of 348 flats make up these towers. The entrance of the project is right on Neeladri Road, making it quite easily accessible from the IT Park. On entering the premises, I found the towers comfortably snuggled inside a huge tract of land. There is a lot of space surrounding the project where parks are planned for fun and leisure.
The housing project has 3BHK flats and Duplex homes. INR 5,200/- per sq.ft. is the price of the homes. The 3BHK flats are of 1575sq.ft and cost around 98 lacs, whereas duplex homes are of 3,550 sq. ft. and are available for 2 crores. INR 100/- per sq. ft. will be charged extra floor wise. However, 2BHK flats and 1BHK flats are already sold out.
The project promises world class amenities like a fully-equipped clubhouse, a fully functional library and facilities for billiards fans. A crèche is included in the list of amenities. I was pleased to find construction of table tennis court in progress and an indoor badminton court in the pipeline. Community halls, steam and sauna facilities and gym along with meditation room will keep you fit and healthy.
A basketball court and swimming pool is going to be available like every other project. I could see the construction going on in full wing for a maze garden and an open amphitheatre. Jogging tracks and a landscaped garden are also under development.
What I found impressive in the project is the superior quality of vitrified flooring in foyer, kitchen and living room. The bedroom has laminated wooden flooring.
The floor plan includes an open kitchen with a granite platform and a breakfast counter. Only the 3BHK and duplex have double bowl sink. The provision of video door phone for security of residents impressed me. I loved the main doors made of teakwood frame with BST shutters.
Shopping Centers & Restaurants
If I have to tell about the facilities in the neighbourhood, then I would say it is one of the best we can get in Electronic City. Just at a walking distance, I found various restaurants and eating joints. Being a township, Electronic City is regularly maintained by ELCIA and their efforts showed in the clean and well-maintained roads. From Biriyani Zone to Moriz, food lovers will not face any problem. Moreover, Fab India also has an outlet just at a walking distance from Shriram Signiaa.
The markets of Ajmera Avenue comprise of florist shops, eating hubs and hair dressing centres, which were just 3 minutes walk for me. Barbecue Nation is also in the vicinity. For party-lovers, this place is a heaven.
Many other housing projects by Concorde group, Ajmera group and Eco-space are also existing there. The neighbourhood is quite posh and three supermarkets in the vicinity can take care of all our daily needs. While Four Points is just a minute’s walk from the housing project, Village Hypermarket is reachable at a walking distance. Various outlets like Good Food and Sanjeevani are also around the corner.
Schools & Colleges
Euro Kids have also opened a centre at the location and Symbiosis Institute of Business Management is just 10 minutes drive from the project location. PES Azim Premji University is also about 20 minutes drive from the place. I could also reach International Institute of Information Technology Bangalore in also 3 minutes, driving a car from the location.
However, I was a bit disappointed with the medical facilities in the vicinity. Although we have a lot of medical centres, chemist shops and Dr. Lal Pathology centre in the vicinity, yet hospitals are not in the vicinity.
The nearest centre that I found to be helpful for medical emergency, i.e. Narayana Hrudalaya, is 20 minutes drive from the location. Apart from this, everything else looks to be well in place around this project.
The possessions in this 3 year old BDA approved project are set to begin by the end of 2016. So hurry, this may be the place of your new home.
