The OMR has become a goldmine for property investors in Chennai over the past five years. Ever since the SIPCOT IT Park started functioning, there has been a huge influx of people to the area. The distance from the city is a huge factor, and it is not feasible anymore for employees of the vast IT Park to travel 60-odd kilometers a day to and fro from work. This has therefore led to the development of several housing complexes of various types-from high rise apartment complexes to row houses to villaments. The development is all along the OMR, from Perungudi to Siruseri. Of these complexes, Godrej Azure by the reputed Godrej Properties Group is one that is under development at Padur, just three kilometers from the SIPCOT Park.
This proximity of the Godrej Azure residences to the IT park will be a huge attraction for the employees working here. With a higher standard of life, and the assurance of the Godrej brand, Godrej Azure promises to be a distinguished development along this stretch of Chennai’s IT highway. Here we list down few reasons that make Godrej Azure’s location quite promising.
Proximity to the workplace
The OMR has an abundance of IT parks (TCS, Newgen, Hexaware, Syntel, CTS, HCL, WIPRO, IGATE etc) that are within a 20 minute drive from the complex. Breakfast needn’t be the most neglected meal of the day with travel times as less as these. It also gives residents time to maintain a fit lifestyle in the morning using the many amenities provided in the complex.
Godrej Azure: Education
There are many schools on the OMR that have come up now to cater to the residents that are moving to the OMR. A few that are within a half an hour drive of Godrej Azure are PSBB Millennium, Gateway International School and BVM Global. A little further away, at around 30 minutes, are Sishya OMR and Abacus Montessori School that offer ICSE syllabus. APL Global School at Thoraipakkam offers the IGCSE syllabus. There are an abundance of colleges on the OMR for further education. Reputed private institutions like Hindustan University (2.5 kilometers), SRR Engineering College (0.5 Kms) and Sathyabama University (12 minutes, 8 kilometers) are located here.
Healthcare around Godrej Azure
Chettinad Health City, one of the leading healthcare institutions in the city, is located 3 kilometers away from Godrej Azure, at Kelambakkam. Apart from this is Global Hospitals at Shollinganallur, further away at half an hour (13.8 kilometers).
Connectivity to and from Godrej Azure
The OMR is very well connected by bus, with the option of AC Volvo buses to the city also appearing every half hour. The closest MRTS station is at Taramani-35 minutes (19 km) away. The Chennai International Airport is an hour away, via the GST Road. Chennai Central Railway Station is located 33 kilometers away.
Perhaps the best part about this location is the proximity to the ECR. This opens up a plethora of activities to make the weekends something to really look forward to. Dakshina Chitra is a one of a kind experience for anyone, and from personal experience I can say that it was some of the best experiences I had as a child. Theme parks like MGM Dizee World and VGP are also located on the ECR. Multiplexes like Mayajaal and AGS Cinemas are located within half an hour of Godrej Azure. Getting away for the weekend is also made easier with Mahabalipuram being half an hour away and Puducherry being 2 hours away.
Godrej Azure: Lifestyle
The OMR has a variety of high end hotels like Novotel, IBIS, Holiday Inn, The Gateway, Asiana Hotel etc where one can go for weekend dinners and to unwind. Furthermore, the ECR is home to an abundance of resorts like the Taj Fisherman’s Cove, Intercontinental, and Radisson Temple Bay where one can get pampered after a long week of work. AKDR Golf Course and the Chennai Equitation Center, both located on the OMR within a half hour drive, offer alternative hobbies for children and adults alike.
Godrej Azure, is well located within the IT district of Southern Chennai. With its frontage to the OMR, it also has access to key social and economic infrastructure of the city.
