Shriram Southern Crest: Location and Accessibility

The project is located in JP nagar 6th phase. Since the project is adjacent to the signal at the junction of the Outer ring road and Kanakapura road and the immediate surrounding would be rather dense with traffic. The immediate vicinity of the project has basic conveniences like grocery stores, and small restaurants. Shopping malls, fancy eateries, and market places would only be a short drive away.

The Kempegowda Railway station is a short drive away (10 kms), however, access is significantly more convenient via the metro. Nearby shopping malls include Forum Mall (9kms), Gopalan Innovation mall (4 kms), and Central Mall (3 kms). There are plenty of hospitals in the vicinity as well with Sagar Hospitals in Kumarswamy layout (2 kms) and many smaller hospitals dotting the area. Access to the Kempegowda International Airport (42 kms) might be a problem as one might need to get past the city traffic to get there, however access via the outer ring road (52 kms) can alleviate this difficulty. Access to the IT hubs of Whitefield (27 kms) and Electronic city (29 kms) are convenient via Silk board junction (9 kms) and NICE road junction (8 kms) respectively.

Shriram Southern Crest: Amenities

Shriram group have taken care to ensure the convenience of residents with well thought features. The project premises have a secondary exit, apart from the 8m wide driveway from the main entrance, leading to the ring road. Thereby cars commuting via the ring road wouldn’t need to encounter the traffic signal just outside the main gate. The project also boasts of a two storey club house, with indoor sports and games like billiards, squash, badminton etc. There is also a swimming pool, basketball, gym, jogging track for the health conscious. For leisurely activities, the premises host a senior citizens’ park, a children’s play area, a sensory garden and a mini amphitheatre.

Shriram Sameeksha surroundings

Perhaps the most attractive feature of the project is its location. Away from the intrusion of city traffic, the area is flanked by the Air Force base and State forest areas, so there’s no fear of the picturesque views of the eucalyptus trees and the surrounding quiet to be taken away for a long time. There are quite a few independent houses and bungalows around, so the area is a potential suburban residential hub.

Shriram Sameeksha Accessibility|source:

The place would be an ideal residence for IT employees with Manyata Tech Park (11 kms) and Kirloskar Tech Park (9 kms) being around a half hour drive away. MS Ramiah Hospital (6 kms) is the nearest major hospital, Columbia Asia Hospital (9 kms) is also accessible. Peenya Industrial Area (5 kms), the Yeshwantpur Railway Station (6 kms) are also a short drive away.

The amenities areas i.e. swimming pool, tennis court, club house etc are still under construction.

The windows let in plenty of natural light. There is also a Puja room/storage area by the entrance door. The above pictures are of a 2BHK apartment.

2 BHK 1020 53L+
1 BHK 800 41L+
1 BHK 750 39L+
1 BHK 700 38L+
1 BHK – 800 sq. ft. v/s 750 sq. ft.

The differences in area for the 1BHK apartments is entirely in the size of the balcony. So as illustrated, the 800 sq. ft. apartment would have the largest balcony, the rest of the apartment is similar for all variants.

Shriram Sameeksha: Completion Status

Phase 2 under construction

The first phase of construction of the apartment is currently completed. The project has commenced the construction of the phase 2 blocks. This would include the club house and  the amenities apart from some of the residential blocks.

Shriram Sameeksha is located in a quiet, greenery laden, residential locality, making for a peaceful stay, away from the hustle bustle of city traffic. The distance from public transport facilities may pose an inconvenience.  The apartments are thoughtfully constructed, and would make for a great living space.
