Bestech Group has been into real estate business for over two decades and has carved its niche amongst the few developers who stick to their promise of quality of finish and on time delivery schedules for its projects. While the Bestech brand has a good recall in residential developments, the construction and development company has also expanded its presence in the commercial, hospitality and retail properties. Bestech Business Towers is one of its signature additions to the commercial infrastructure on the Gurgaon Sohna Corridor.
Gurgaon Sohna Corridor commonly known as Sohna Road is one of the fastest developing zones in N.C.R region, it has come up to be an area of high end commercial, retail and residential importance. With many high-rise projects completed and proposed along the road, the skyline of the region has seen massive changes over the past decade. The Sohna road starts from one of the major intersections on NH-8 namely Rajiv Chowk from where one can access Manesar and Delhi along the NH-8 and Old Gurgaon and Sohna along the Sohna Road. The Southern Peripheral Road is within 10 minutes drive from the Rajiv Chowk and all this in turn makes the region accessible from whole of Gurgaon and much of NCR. In the years to come there are plans for extension of Delhi Metro to the NH8 via the Golf Course Extension Road and Southern Peripheral Road. The Sohna road runs parallel to the Golf Course Road and meets the Golf Course Extension road near the Bestech Business Tower. This road further leads to Sohna and was recently declared NH248A. There are ample avenues to reside along the main Sohna road, several other gated communities and HUDA sectors are easily accessible from this office complex. Moreover places of leisure such as malls, restaurants and hotels are now to be found all along the Sohna road.
Bestech Business Tower is one of the prime office towers in Sector-48 Gurgaon with direct road facing to the 60 meter wide Sohna Road. Classified as an IT park, the building offers close to 7.5lakh Sq ft area for occupancy. In this massive G+9 structure available floor plates are in sizes of 40,000 and 80,000 Sqft. The signage and the tower are easily visible from a distance on Sohna Road. The 60 meter wide road ensures the smooth traffic movement outside the site and the two level basement gives ample room for vehicles of occupiers. There is a large visitors parking as well right outside the main gate. The Bestech Business Tower is symmetrically planned with a central lobby opening onto 40000Sqft floor plates on either sides, the entrance lobby is double height and houses a wide foyer which opens into the primary staircase lobby with 10 high speed lifts. 5 of these lifts open on alternate floors respectively. With this highly efficient planning technique being followed the buildings offer variety of different sizes available for leasing, the symmetrically planned towers have washrooms on equal distances and 4 more staircases at appropriate distances to comply with the firefighting and safety norms.
While the building has a room for new offices to move in, the present client portfolio is as impressive as it could have been, the major occupiers of the buildings are known IT brands like Convergys, XL Group, Xerox, Avantha, Aircel and Essex. While Convergys has rented out over 2 floors, others have offices efficiently distributed across the floor plates efficiently. The facilities team of Bestech looks after the upkeep of the property and has done a good job of it.
Bestech Group to date has followed the model of build and sell across its commercial properties. However in most cases the developer controls the leasing and maintenance of properties and passes on rent/ earnings to buyers/ investors. Having an office on the Sohna road brings to any IT firm an ease of connectivity and exposure to its brand. While the surroundings here are a mixture of residential as well as commercial complexes, Bestech Park View City 1 and Park View City 2 flank the Bestech Business Tower.
At this location getting places to work may be difficult due to the growing demands for offices, business centers or shared office space in the NCR region, one might want to look at leasing some space at Bestech Business Tower where the prevailing rents are Rs 70 and more per sq ft per month and from a developer like Bestech the quality comes for sure.
Further On Bestech’s Commercial & Retails Foray – Where It All Started
Bestech Group is a multi-faceted real estate firm which has created a vast portfolio in construction and development of high end residential, commercial and retail projects. Bestech Group forayed into real estate business more than 2 decades ago and has been widely appreciated for its modern architectural style and commitment to timely delivery. We have been exploring Bestech Group’s current activities but this time around we travel into history and study their first few commercial and retail establishments. We took some time out and visited – Bestech Center Point, Bestech Chambers and Bestech Central Square all happen to be located in and around the HUDA City Centre metro station at Gurgaon.
Bestech Center Point
This 30,000 sq ft retail cum office complex is situated at a 10 minutes walking distance (1.2 kilometer) from the HUDA City Center metro station. The Bestech Center Point can be easily reached from Iffco Chowk metro as well which is the second station on this route. It is one of old and popular commercial ventures of the Bestech Group. Bestech has combined the concept, innovation, design, beauty all together to match the expectations of both buyers and visitors. Located in the heart of Gurgaon, one of the fastest growing cities, Center Point caters to the needs of people for all kinds of home and building materials including construction materials, hardware, interiors, household products etc. Situated at Sushant lok, Block A, is in the immediate vicinity of DLF and Unitech, Center Point is easily accessible from Gurgaon-Mehrauli road and NH 8. This project is suitable for both small and large scale businesses. It is a mix of comfort, convenience and luxury in order to bring the excellent space for buyers to fulfil their various demands. What works really well for this commercial center is the ample surface parking, easy entry/ exit from the Hamilton Court road and proximity to vast residential areas, hotels and hospitals. The project is well equipped with modern features and designed as per the norms of a quality commercial complex. All this with quite green neighborhood makes it a perfect location to do businesses. Some of the major occupants of Bestech Center Point are LG, Pizza Hut, ixigo.com, State Bank ATM, Anytime Fitness amongst others. This development was the first one by the Group in commercial arena.
At a distance of about 1 kilometer from Bestech Center Point is the Bestech Chambers (about 850 meter walk from Huda City Center Metro station). Bestech Chambers offers suites as offices which is a unique concept. The entire area dedicated to office space is occupied and the developer is now marketing retail space on the ground floor. Slightly inside from the main 30 meter sector road, Bestech Chambers is located amidst the green cover and stands tall with respect to various developments here. The entry driveway and porch is impressive. Positioned in the hub of business activity, Sushant Lok Phase I, Bestech Chambers is a walking distance from HUDA City Center metro station and Park Plaza Hotel. This built up area is ~140,000 sq ft and offers grade A commercial offices with 2 basements, ground and 6 upper floors. Once the retail space is operational it will offer ample shopping, entertainment and the best of brands under one roof. Ground floor which is currently being marketed is suitable for retail stores, bank branches, restaurant, cafe and electronic shops. And all above floors are for office use and are already occupied. With ample of parking space and quality upkeep of the property Bestech Chambers does come across as a good office/ retail address. Shroff Eye Center, NYK Ship Management, The Taplow Group, AOC, Travel Up Solution, M+W Group are some of the major occupants here.
Bestech Central Square
At a distance of 5 kilometer from Bestech Chambers is the Bestech Central Square (almost similar distance from HUDA City Center Metro station) the first major retail foray of the firm. This 74,000 sq ft complex was delivered in the year 2007 and is now very popular shopping destination in this part of the city. An ultimate terminus for the Gnostic shoppers, Bestech Central Square is strategically located on main sector road in Sector 57, and is just off the Golf Course Extension road. The project is also a part of Sushant lok II and III, which are the most opulent and well inhabited pockets. Jalvayu Vihar, Harmony Homes, Tulip Garden, GAIL Society, Kendriya Vihar are some of the premium colonies in the neighborhood. The project is a four side open complex with one floor of office and three floors of retail. The large atrium and showrooms with 2 sides open add to the grace of the shopping complex. For solving parking problem that contains in ordinary complexes the Bestech Central Square contains 2 level basement parking. Some of the occupants here are – Samsung, 32 Dental solutions, SRS value bazaar, Hype Gym, Axis Bank. One stand out point here is the atrium which is open to the sun and thus is well lit. In our recce of the place we found it to be a shopping hub with popular stores witnessing good footfall even at odd hours.
Bestech Center Point, Bestech Chambers and Bestech Central Square were completely sold to users and investors. Bestech continues to manage these properties through its facility management arm. These properties were developed when Bestech was creating a name for itself yet a visit here will impress one with design, layouts and occupancy of buildings. Bestech has further gone onto develop large IT Parks such as Bestech Business Tower, Bestech Cyber Park and Orient Bestech Business Tower all in Gurgaon over time.
