Godrej Air: The USP
The developers have involved many reputable names such as INFORM Architects as the architectural designers of Godrej Air and MasterPLAN as landscape designers for the same. The unique selling proposition for this particular project holds following aspects:
Under PMAY scheme (Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojna):
Godrej is offering apartments in various configurations and price ranges with convenient payment plan options which several in middle income group can afford. The sizes conform to guidelines under the ambitious PMAY-Credit Linked Subsidy Scheme wherein the first time home buyer as long as he/ she meets the income criterion can opt for subsidies up to Rs. 2.30 lk* or so from the Government of India.
Green Living Design Concept: The project claims to follow the ideal IGBC guidelines such as enhanced daylight and cross-ventilation for all the apartments while heat reduction will be achieved by the use of grass pavers, dense tree cover and use of china mosaic with landscaped garden on the roof top.
The design is such that it will be convenient for the differently-abled people to move around in this residential complex. There is provision of non-slippery slopes and audio assistance in lifts for visually impaired people, just to name a few.
Energy conservation will be achieved by certain aspects such as solar water heating and water-efficient plumbing system which will have capacity of at least 35 % less than baseline criteria. Organic waste treatment plant will be installed which will treat 100 % of waste generated. Waste water will be treated through the eco-friendly services such as sewage treatment plan (STP) which will be used for maintaining the gardens. Rain-water harvesting system will be well equipped to capture at least 50 % of runoff water from the roof and other areas. There will be installation for electric car charging at this complex.
Healthy Living follows Green Living: As the name suggests, Godrej Air is based on the concept of fresh and healthy living which. To promote the same the developer is providing for green common areas, lobbies, etc which will host several medicinal plants. The designers explained that about 16 varieties of medicinal plants and 11 varieties of trees will be couched in and around the whole landscape of the project. It is expected these will have superior air-purifying qualities and even have medicinal benefits such as, quick recovery from cold-cough/ fever.
Apart from the location, which is of key importance for a home buyer, Godrej Air has lots to offer to those who are looking at quality housing from a reliable developer. On top of it the concept of green living will attract those who are looking for cleaner environment to grow old and nurture families.
