On the way to Bangalore from Chennai, on the NH4, one comes across Poonamallee. A suburb of Chennai, this area is slowly developing to keep up with the rapid pace of the ever expanding city. A peaceful settlement, this area guarantees residents with views of untouched countryside, and the right amount of civilisation to keep it from being unsafe. Poonamallee, initially not considered part of the city, has now become a destination for families because of the industrial development around the area. The area has developed to be a mid-point between the industrial areas of the city and the heart of the city, in order to give residents the comfort of moderate travel times along with the proximity to important landmarks within Chennai. The Godrej group has realised the potential of the area in terms of real estate value, and has built a prime property overlooking the Chembarambakkam lake- Godrej Palmgrove.
Before looking at the complex itself, we provide you a few attracting factors of the area.
The unobstructed views
What could possibly be better than having a cup of tea on your balcony at the end of a long tiring day? Having a cup of tea on your balcony that offers almost panoramic views of green, interspersed with lakes and those few buildings. With the complex overlooking the Chembarambakkam lake, the view is only enhanced further .
In the current scenario where the most dreaded part of every day is the long and traffic filled drive to work, living in Palmgrove brings back the pleasure of driving. Here one can take that sedan that was bought after all that hard work and get the real feel of the vehicle, cruise mode included. The Sriperumpudur-Oragadam corridor, about a 20 minute drive from Palmgrove, houses the factories of some major companies such as Hyundai, Ford, BMW, Dell etc.
The residents of Palmgrove are assured of a good quality education for their wards with school like St. John’s (6km) and Chennai Public School (5km) and colleges like Venkateshwara College of Engineering(17.8km), Ramachandra Medical College(14km) and Saveetha Medical College (7.5km) in the vicinity. With the close proximity of the educational institutions from the complex, children needn’t go through the strain of sitting in the school/college bus for hours in a day.
With the medical facilities at Saveetha Hospital (6 km) and Ramachandra Hospital (11 km), families are assured of quality healthcare.
Palmgrove is located within a 10 minute drive of alternative entertainment options, like a day at the Madras Motor Sports Club at Irungattukottai or a day at Decathlon, making Sundays more interesting than ever. The Madras Motor Sports Club organises world-class racing every year, every boy’s dream come true. The famous Chokhi Dhani of Rajasthan has also opened a branch in Chennai, less than 8 kilometers away. Theme parks like Queensland and EVP theme park are located less than 10 kilometers away in Sriperumbudur. The Rajiv Gandhi Memorial is located in Sriperumbudur, giving parents the opportunity to educate their children on the history of our country along with being able to show them physically.
While the distance from the city is considered a downside, in reality the drive to major landmarks like the Chennai Central Railway Station takes the same amount of time as within the city, without the traffic that comes with driving through the city. The nearest railway station is Avadi, at 15 kilometers away. The Koyambedu Railway Station is 16 kilometers away, and the Chennai International airport is 25 kilometers away. There are also plans to build a greenfield airport at Sriperumbudur, which will shoot the land value up by miles. The best time to invest is now, with the way the rates in the area are steadily increasing by the year.
