Godrej Properties Limited continues to add new feathers to its Pune cap. With its gaze firmly fixed on the emerging areas of east and south Pune, Godrej is coming up with phase 1 of Godrej Prana, its second property in Undri. Having already dipped its toes here with Godrej Horizon, Godrej has firmly established its footing with Prana, a standout project, both in terms of scale and impact.
Undri in South Pune, which was a small, sleepy village not too long back, is now a symbol of Pune’s rapid expansion and development. With rising demand for housing and better connectivity in this area, Godrej has identified Undri to lay down a marker in the Pune property market. ‘Prana’ means ‘Life’ and Godrej aims to bring this side of the work-life balance equation to fruition for residents of this society, with its comfortable and modern homes and its four lifestyle zones (Nature, Life, Joy and Zen), promising wellness and rejuvenation.
Godrej Prana is located just off the Katraj – Hadapsar bypass road and can be reached using this road. For those coming from the National Institute of Bank Management (NIBM) direction, drive down NIBM road till you hit a T-junction just before Corinthians club. Take a right from this junction and go straight till you hit the Katraj – Hadapsar bypass road and take a left. Once on the bypass, look for an arch, on which Godrej Prana is printed, on the left (if coming from Hadapsar) or right (if from Katraj) and take the road leading from the arch to arrive at the property.
Undri is expected to come under Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) soon, boosting public transport and provision of regular water supply. Also, the proposed Pune Ring Road project will pass right next to Godrej Prana, which will directly connect residents to all parts of the city.
Undri’s proximity to Pune city and the vast unoccupied land here attracted many developers including Godrej, to come up with large modern projects, attracting a horde of customers as well as other reputed service providers.
Bizzbay Mall and Dorabjee Royale Heritage Mall (both 4 km), Seasons Mall and Amanora Town Centre (both 9 km) are major retail outlets cum entertainment centers in the neighbourhood of Godrej Prana. The shopping hub of MG Road is 9 km away. The Corinthians Club & Boutique Hotel as well as Country Club, Undri lie within 3 km.
Residents will be spoilt for choice when it comes to providing quality education for their children, with the nearby Euro School and Bishops School (both ICSE), Delhi Public School (CBSE) and RIMS International School (CBSE International) filling this need. Options for medical care, ranging from the more affordable Sahyadri Hospital & Noble Hospital (both 8.5 km) and Inamdar Hospital (9 km) to high end Ruby Hall Clinic Wanowrie (7 km), abound in the neighbourhood.
Godrej Prana will be built on a 31 acre plot in various phases. All approvals for phase 1 of this project have been received and construction is underway. This phase comprises of 7 apartment towers (A to G), along with two lifestyle zones named Joy and Zen. Apartments in tower A have already been sold out and bookings are on for apartments in other towers. Possession handover for phase 1 is expected to be completed by September 2019.
The base price of apartments is Rs. 4600/square foot. Towers A and G will have 12 floors each and comprise of 1 BHK (carpet area of 650 square feet) and 2 BHK (900 square feet) apartments. Towers B and C will have 14 floors each and contain 2 BHK (1100 square feet), 2.5 BHK (1300 square feet) and 3 BHK (1650 square feet) apartments. Towers D, E and F also will have 14 floors each, but only have apartments of 2 BHK (1100 square feet) and 3 BHK (1500 square feet). Such a wide variety of housing choices make this property suitable for all buyer categories, be they singletons, families, those looking for a second home or as an investment.
Apartments in towers D and E will be semi-furnished, while those in the other towers will be unfurnished. As a result, prices for apartments in these 2 towers are higher, starting from approximately Rs. 66.9 lakh for a 2 BHK apartment and from Rs. 89 lakh for a 3 BHK apartment. Apartments are either garden facing or partial garden facing. Phase 1 also includes construction of two lifestyle zones: Zen and Joy. These zones comprise amenities for sport, relaxation and meditation and add a nice green cover to the property.
Great views of surrounding areas including nearby hills, a neighbouring water body and the community gardens.
Rental desk to assist owners looking to lease out their apartments.
The Zen zone will contain a children’s play area and a tree house for kids. It will have Zen gardens for relaxation and meditation, surrounded by a jogging track. A practice pitch for cricket also forms part of this zone.
The Joy zone will have a club house with a gymnasium, swimming pool and kids’ pool.
The living room and bedrooms in each apartment will all have points to connect Cable television and telephone. High quality branded modular switches (Anchor, Roma) shall be provided.
Residents of towers D and E will additionally be provided air conditioners and modular kitchen cabinets.
Godrej Prana combines the benefits of a great location with comfortable homes and many useful amenities. It is Godrej Properties’ most ambitious project in this part of Pune and could help them embellish their reputation in this market (site visit report of Godrej Infinity).
