VTP Urban Life, Talegaon – Location and Plans

Increasing urbanization has led to decreasing quality of life in cities, with residents constantly being exposed to high pollution levels, traffic congestion, lack of proper and affordable housing, among such factors. All this has spurred the growth of suburban towns. These towns, though outside city limits, possess nearly equivalent levels of infrastructure and amenities to that of the adjoining metro thus complementing Urban life. One such suburban outgrowth of the city of Pune and an emerging residential destination is Talegaon, a municipal town with a history dating way back to the times of Maratha reign under BajiRao Peshwa.

Particularly in the last two decades, Talegaon has witnessed remarkable growth in terms of infrastructure, industry and social amenities. VTP Realty, fast emerging developer of Pune, has identified this location for their upcoming project VTP Urban Life. The selection of this site is a manifestation of detailed analysis that was carried out by this developer.

Owing to the segment of people residing in the vicinity, the type of industries that currently are based in and around the town and those that would commence shortly, presence of social infrastructure such as schools, hospitals and colleges within Talegaon, and its attractiveness as location to people in Mumbai and Pune helped VTP choose the town for this premium project.

Location and Connectivity Analysis

Urban Life is located in Katvi village of Maval Taluka near MIDC Talegaon, with a distance of about 30kms from Pune city centre and 120kms from Mumbai city. The Urban Life is located at an offset of just 500 metres from the proposed Pune ring road.

Approach Road to VTP Urban Life
Approach Road to VTP Urban Life

The old Mumbai-Pune Highway as well as the Mumbai-Pune Expressway are at 1.2kms and 2kms respectively from the project site. With more than 25 global manufacturers including Essar, Posco, Seaco, General Motors, JCB that are currently present or looking to open facilities in Talegaon MIDC which is at a meagre distance of 2kms from Urban Life, one can assess the target customer segment for this property. Chakan MIDC acting as a prime industrial belt is at 20kms from Urban Life.

Urban Life is also a convenient option for IT sector employees working in the Hinjewadi IT Park, Talawade Park which is at a distance of 22kms, away from the jostle of the city and avoiding traffic congestion owing to the 4 lane connectivity offered by the Mumbai-Bangalore highway.

With Lonavla and Mumbai being a 45 minute and 2.15 hours’ drive from Talegaon respectively and directly connected by the highway, Urban Life is attractive to investors from Mumbai as well. For such investors, Urban Life offers the possibility of high property appreciation in future because of its connectivity and locational features.

In terms of public transport, Urban Life is easily accessible by Local trains from Pune, with the Talegaon Railway station 2 km from the site. PMT buses are accessible on the Alandi-Vadgaon road at every half hour. The nearest PMT stop is about 1.5kms from Urban Life.

Talegaon, being located at a higher altitude, boasts of year round great weather. At Urban Life one can enjoy unobstructed view of nature thus increasing human connect with pristine surroundings.

Social Amenities

Social Infrastructure and amenities are amongst the most important factors for home buyers. Schools, hospitals, colleges and recreational spaces form an integral part of social amenities and thus any home buyer would appreciate if these conveniences are within easy reach of their homes. Since Talegaon is a historic town, places like Jain temple, Chakan fort, Kalapini cultural organisation have tourism potential.

Shivajinagar – The home for everything!

Shivajinagar – An area that has derived its name from the famous king of the Maratha Empire Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, is a place that boasts of a rich history. It is said that one mark of a complete Punekar is that he/she is sure to belong from Shivajinagar! Today, this place is the centre of the metropolitan city of Pune.

All the upcoming residential projects have their focus on apartments comprising units more than 3BHK. These projects offer all the conveniences but cost not less than 1.5 crore. For those who wish to stay as a tenant the rent costs more than 25,000/month.

The available conveniences for those staying in Shivajinagar are not less whether it be shopping, education, recreation, business or work. All these conveniences have thus pushed up the real estate prices in this area. As the proposed Pune Metro traverses through Shivajinagar, it is also one of the reasons for high real estate prices.

To conclude, the upcoming residential projects in Shivajinagar are a blend of modern styles of architecture and inclusive of all essential amenities. But affordability is thus an issue for the middle income groups which is the only drawback of this area.
