Overview of Velachery Real Estate by Propstory

The needs of a family are ever-changing, and the capability of an area of meeting these needs dictates whether the family will choose to move to the area of not. With this in mind, most areas within the city are developing to be so much more than just residential areas; they are now fully equipped to provide for every aspect of family life be it education, entertainment, healthcare or employment. In this development, Velachery has emerged as one of the foremost areas in the city in terms of the facilities and infrastructure provided to the residents.

In addition to the reduced travel time by road, Velachery is also very well connected via public transport.
