VTP Realty is acknowledged as a reliable upcoming developer in Pune having delivered close to 1 million sq. ft. of real-estate spaces in Pune, including residential, commercial, retail and hospitality developments. Some of their projects include VTP Urban Life in Talegaon, VTP Urban Nest at Undri, VTP Purvanchal in Wagholi, VTP Urban Rise in Pisoli, VTP Celesta in NIBM Road and VTP Solitaire in Baner. The backward integration of construction & sourcing process gives VTP an edge among the otherwise crowded residential market of Pune.

The project has spacious 2 and 3 BHK apartment configurations ranging from 648 sq. ft. to 788 sq. ft. and 973 sq. ft. to 1031 sq. ft. of carpet area respectively. The all inclusive pricing starts from Rs. 64 lakhs. This article will talk in detail about the project philosophy, location, floor plans, layouts and amenities.

HiLife: Location and Social Infrastructure

A premier location adds to appeal of any good & revered residential development. This is where HiLife at Dange Chowk, Wakad stands out from its competition as it offers convenience of transport rest of the city & Mumbai, yet it’s away from the extremely busy nodes of Pune.

The project is strategically located at Dange Chowk in Wakad. The BRT Bus Stand is extremely close to the site. Other transport nodes such as Pune Airport (22.5 KM), Pune Railway Station (17 KM), Chinchwad Station (5 KM) and Shivaji Nagar Bus Stand (14 KM) are also situated at an accessible distance from the site.

The unique location of the project situates it 2 mins away from the Mumbai-Pune highway. However, despite this proximity, the project is away from the main highway and thus ensures residents enjoy good connectivity without the noise and pollution. The location is also just a 5

minute drive away from popular localities of west Pune such as Baner and Aundh which are favourites among non-Puneites as well for their social life.

It is also located close to the Hinjewadi and Talawade IT parks which are employment hubs to a major population of IT professionals. Civic amenities such as water and waste disposal in Wakad are better developed and managed than Hinjewadi. The location also offers proximity to hill stations such as Lonavala and others, which are popular weekend getaways.

Connectivity from Dange Chowk

Well developed infrastructure- which includes schools, hospitals, entertainment centres and restaurants- is an important aspect of choosing an ideal location. Schools and colleges such as Wisdom World School (3KM), Euro School (3KM), Akshara International School (3KM), Blossom Public School (3KM), Indira College (2.5 KM), DY Patil College (3 KM) and Balaji Institute (2KM) are present near the site. Hospitals such as Aditya Birla Hospital (2KM) and Life Point Multispeciality Hospital (3KM) are located in the vicinity. Popular entertainment and shopping centres located nearby are D-Mart (Thergaon 3 KM), Reliance Fresh (4KM), Big Bazaar (4.5KM), Westend Mall (9KM), Xion Mall (4.5 Km), PVR Chinchwad (6KM) and Pimpri Central (6KM).

HiLife: About the Project

The residences will come up over 4.75 acres of land parcel and will have 6 towers. The site layout has been done such that all towers surround the central recreational zone. The high-rise towers will be 20 storeyed high along with a two level parking- the tallest in the vicinity. Phase 1 will see the development of 3 towers- T1, T2 and T3. The remaining towers will be developed in the later phases.The number of apartments on each floor are as follows: T1- 6, T2 – 6, T3 – 8. The lift core of these buildings will comprise of 3 lifts.

The developer provides ‘Better Design’ even at their tower level planning by incorporating unique design attributes. The layout of the towers will be done in the form of a Y-shaped hexagon. This will essentially be a tri-axial Y-shaped plan wherein three separate wings will be connected to a central core. The advantage of this design will first and foremost be privacy- as all the viewing angles will be outwards without overlooking the neighbouring unit. There will also be optimum inflow of natural light and ventilation. The entrance lobbies to the towers will be double heighted with a covered drop-off area and a waiting lounge.

HiLife: Apartment design features

‘Better Design’ at apartment level planning includes many elements. Firstly, apartments will be provided with corner L-shaped bay windows. Apart from facilitating a panoramic view, these windows also have functional aspects such as seating area and storage below the seating. There is also a good inflow of light and air through these windows. All apartments will be ergonomically designed with maximum utility of space, thus providing more livable area. There will also be flexibility to design the internal spaces as per the user’s needs; enabled by minimum internal walls and passages.

VTP Realty is the first one to introduce the concept of IPO pricing at Pune. People interested to book an apartment during the launch can consider price bands offered by the developer and pay Rs. 45,000 to get a token.

HiLife: Amenities

There will be a plethora of luxurious amenities and recreational areas for all age groups at HiLife.

In terms of ‘Better Design’ at site level planning, a central podium will be vehicle free and will act as a green connecting space to the open spaces on the north and south side. This landscaped area will give the residents an experience of living without boundaries.

Sports enthusiasts can avail amenities such as golf putting, badminton court, lawn tennis, net cricket pitch, guitar shaped swimming pool, half basketball court, kho-kho pitch and skating rink.

An approximate area of 7000 sq. ft. for children’s and toddler’s play area has been planned separately for children’s safety, along with seating area for the parents. There will also be an outdoor study area which can be an interesting space to take a break from our usual indoor study desks. Additional play areas for kids such as sand pits will add value to their outdoor activities.

The clubhouse will be planned with space for indoor games and gymnasium beside the infinity pool with a view of the outdoor guitar shaped pool and landscape area. The infinity pool will be with a separate kids pool and dedicated sit outs for parents. A never heard of “Guitar” shaped pool is considered functional as well as one with strong aesthetic appeal, which may attract many more users from within the residential complex.

Fitness related amenities are not less either which include a jogging track and cycling track. Outdoor areas for dance and meditation will be earmarked for the residents too. A yoga lawn will complete the set of fitness spaces at the project.

Senior citizens will have a dedicated pavilion to rest and have social gatherings, which will be away from the disturbance of other activities. There will also be an acupressure path provided for them, helping in balance and physical improvement.

The activity lawn, party lawn, stage, multipurpose hall and amphitheatre can be used by all age groups for various activities, interactive sessions, social gatherings and community celebrations.

Apart from these, there will be additional spaces for recreation and leisure such as chit chat plaza, chess board, barbeque counter, water bodies with cascade and fountains, outdoor seating area and ribbon sit-out.

The project will also have the facility of rain-water harvesting, which is always a plus in any residential society.

Conclusion

HiLife is a promising project in all aspects. Apart from the ‘Better Design’ features explained above, it promises ‘Better Build’ through the use of Mivan technology for construction and premium interior specifications. They also promise ‘Better Care’ by providing these homes at competitive prices and pocket-friendly payment slabs, a trusted feedback mechanism and no transfer fee. They also have community building programs for 6 months after possession and help in leasing and resale of property.

VTP Realty brings its Better Designed homes to West Pune – Wakad (Dange Chowk)

The scenario of present day realty markets show many developers falling flat on their promise of bigger areas for homes. The super built-up area is usually a big number, but the livable area turns out to be smaller than expected.

Design is one of the primary building elements of any product. A successful design can only be the one which benefits the user and its usability.

VTP Realty and Rairah Corp. present HiLIfe, a premium residential project offering premium homes offering well-designed homes with multiple recreation arenas. Following are the characteristics incorporated in the homes at HilIfe:

More livable area inside homes.  

The carpet area of VTP Realty homes is maximized by providing larger room sizes than usual in the said carpet area. This is done by reducing the usage of unnecessary passages and internal walls in the design, creating a sense of openness in the house. Sizeable rooms, coupled with optimum utilization of spaces translates into bigger livable and usable area for the HiLife residents.

More flexibility to use the space inside each room.

Another aspect of these better designed homes comes from the recent trend of home buyers looking for flexible living spaces that adapt to their changing lifestyle and needs. Hence, VTP Realty has kept the length and width of the rooms such that they offer flexibility to accommodate multiple functionality options.

The living and dining room are combined with an open kitchen in a manner that various usage options are possible depending on the liking of the customer, making each home unique and an identity of the user itself. For example; there is enough space to draw a partition between living and dining to the liking of those people who prefer living room to be a cozier place. For those, who celebrate big in their living area, the kitchen can be kept open with a breakfast counter. And for those who prefer privacy in the kitchen can also draw up a wall between the kitchen and the dining room.

Usable niches to give clear spaces and better circulation.

There are usable niches provided in the rooms of many homes at VTP Realty, which can easily accommodate furniture. These can be used for various functions such as a wardrobe space or a study area. The resulting advantage of using these niches is that it gives the residents a clear rectangular space where circulation and utilization becomes easy.

Windows and openings.

Window and opening placements are very important in a home. These decide the inflow of natural light and ventilation which eventually affect the health of users and overall vibes inside a house. HilIfe homes have adequate and well placed windows and openings with low sills. Not only do they facilitate cross ventilation but also and keep them well lit. This maintains a pleasant living environment at homes.

HiLife project
Bedroom at HiLife project

Most of us prefer floor to ceiling windows as they provide better visual access to outdoor views. HiLife homes come with L-shaped bay and corner windows, which have multiple advantages. Firstly, they enhance the elevation of buildings as they break the monotony of regular rectangular windows.

Being bay windows as well as L-shaped windows can double up as an attractive feature, as there is a seating space which can be used to enjoy the panoramic views of the surroundings. The functionality aspect is also covered, by provision of storage space below the seating area. These windows also make the room appear window.

HiLife project

Ergonomics.

HiLife homes are designed keeping in mind Ergonomics. The towers are in the shape of hexagon (Y-shaped), formed by three wings connected to a central core. This geometrical styled elevation ensures maximum views from the homes will be outward and not overlooking a neighboring home. Also these homes get good sunlight and wind.

HiLife project

Well-placed towers.

The placement of high-rise towers and landscaped podium pockets at HiLife is such that 75% of the homes are facing the landscape and amenity zones. Most of the homes are facing the predominant wind direction.

VTP Realty has created HiLife homes keeping in mind the user and provide them with the best user experience. Coming up at Dange Chowk in Wakad, HiLife will also see homes incorporating the above design characteristics, fulfilling their philosophy of a ‘Better Design’ and offer more functionality.

Wakad – One of Pune’s Well-Connected Residential Suburbs

Last updated on May 2, 2018 by Chrisanta Dias

The picturesque region of West Pune is home to the premium, coveted and well developed suburbs of Baner and Aundh. When the PCMC began developing West Pune, the focus was on these two suburbs. Today, they are fully developed, saturated and too expensive for middle income households. As a result, extentions to Baner and Aundh were developed, such as Pimple Saudagar and Wakad which were known as Aundh Annexe and continue to be called so by the locals. These two localities were developed to absorb the growing demand for middle income housing which was no longer available in Baner and Aundh. While Pimple Saudagar still retains some of its forested aura, Wakad has transformed into a well developed town thanks to the civic efforts of the PCMC. On one hand, Wakad benefits from its proximity to posh Baner and Aundh, while on the other it is flanked by the massive …

Wakad – One of Pune’s Well-Connected Residential Suburbs

The picturesque region of West Pune is home to the premium, coveted and well developed suburbs of Baner and Aundh. When the PCMC began developing West Pune, the focus was on these two suburbs. Today, they are fully developed, saturated and too expensive for middle income households. As a result, extentions to Baner and Aundh were developed, such as Pimple Saudagar and Wakad which were known as Aundh Annexe and continue to be called so by the locals. These two localities were developed to absorb the growing demand for middle income housing which was no longer available in Baner and Aundh. While Pimple Saudagar still retains some of its forested aura, Wakad has transformed into a well developed town thanks to the civic efforts of the PCMC.

On one hand, Wakad benefits from its proximity to posh Baner and Aundh, while on the other it is flanked by the massive Hinjawadi Infotech and Biotech hub along Mumbai highway and the manufacturing hubs of Pimpri Chinchwad. It is in this sweet spot that Wakad stands out, providing benefits of connectivity & conveniences, with residences that many can easily afford.

Let’s delve into why Wakad is now being sought after by major developers in Pune for residential developments.

Strategic Location

Wakad is located towards Western periphery of Pune city and is one of the fastest growing localities of Pune thanks to the National Highways access to Mumbai & important business centers of the city. It is surrounded by bustling residential suburbs such as Pimple Nilakh, Pimple Saudagar and Aundh to the east, Baner, Pashan and Balewadi to the south, Akurdi, Chinchwad and Ravet to the north, while to the west is the IT hub of Hinjawadi. Being located near such well known suburbs of Aundh and Baner with thriving socio-economic infrastructure and lifestyle means that Wakad has a ready lifestyle around. The crucial Mula River also borders the southernmost parts of Wakad.

Good Connectivity

The biggest advantage of developing residential properties in Wakad, is the proximity to finest residential locales that are buzzing with lifestyle and employment alike. Baner and Aundh are not more than 5 minutes’ drive from Wakad. Driving to Shivaji Nagar which is the heart of Pune, is easier as well.

Wakad is surrounded by major transit routes, and one of the important access points is the Dange Chowk Road now called Wakad Road. It runs from the east to north-west of Wakad and along the way crosses the Mumbai-Pune-Bangalore Highway at Bhumkar Chowk and further along intersects with Aundh-Ravet BRTS at Dange Chowk, a busy junction.

Also, the Mumbai-Pune-Bangalore Highway itself passes through Wakad and thus makes this suburb an important one and is an added bonus for all Mumbaikars and Punekars who travel to Mumbai frequently.

Wakad is also well connected to the Pimpri-Chinchwad industrial belt that houses companies like Bajaj, Thermax, Tata Motors, and has easy access to the industrial areas of Chakan and Talegaon – Pune’s famed auto and manufacturing hubs.

Surrounding IT & Business Hubs

Wakad itself has commercial hubs such as Pushpak Business Hub and Solitaire Business Hub.

In close proximity is the IT & business hub with top IT parks like Nano Space, Teerth Technospace, Prabhavee Techpark, High Street. It houses brands like Veritas, Cummins, Siemens, Vyomlabs, Savy Software, Aloha Technologies, Pubmatic, Xoriant, Capgemini to name a few.

On the other side, is the prominent IT neighbour – Hinjawadi which is considered Maharashtra’s ‘Silicon Valley’. As such, Wakad is the gateway to Hinjawadi IT Park. Hinjawadi is home to Quadron Business Park, Embassy Tech Zone, Rajiv Gandhi Infotech Park, as well as offices of Tech Mahindra, Infosys, TCS, Dassault Systems and the like.  

To the north is the Talawade IT Park which is approximately 16 kms or 34 mins driving distance away from Wakad. It houses IT companies such as Capgemini, Fujtsu Consulting and Syntel.

Accessibility to Industrial belts

Wakad’s location bestows it with unmatched accessibility to the nearby industrial belts which are also mass-employers, such as:

The PCMC Industrial Belt

The sprawling Pimpri-Chinchwad Industrial belt is one of the largest of its kind in this part of the country and certainly boasts of some of the biggest names in the industry and is an easy drive to this industrial belt. Take a look at the names that it is home to — Tata Engineering, Bajaj Auto, Hindustan Antibiotic, the Finolex group of Industries, Sandvik Asia and Atlas Copco. The industrial belt was earlier characterised by a concentration of engineering units but over the years there has been a shift with a variety of industries like pharmaceuticals, chemicals, telecommunications and even Information Technology companies now setting up shop there.

Besides this, the other two crowns making Pune a popular auto & manufacturing hubs; Chakan, Bhosari & Talegaon are in proximity too.

Chakan industrial hub

Home to a major SEZ promoted by the MIDC, Chakan has evolved into a popular automobile hub housing production plants like Volkswagen Group, Daimler-Benz, Mahindra & Mahindra, Jaguar Land Rover, Bajaj Auto, General Electric, Hyundai, etc.

Talegaon MIDC

Talegaon MIDC is also an easy drive away from Wakad. It houses popular brands like General Motors, L&T, JCB and INA Bearings Pvt. Ltd.

Social Infrastructure

The PCMC is famous for its ultra-modern infrastructure development and since Wakad is administered by this civic body, it’s civic amenities are among the best. Well known hospitals include Aditya Birla Hospital, Lifepoint MultiSpeciality Hospital, Surya Mother and Child Care SuperSpeciality Hospital, and Sai Jyoti Hospital and ICU among others. Wisdom World School, EuroSchool, Mount Litera Zee, Blossom School are some well known schools.

Indira College, Indira Institute of Management, and Pune Institute of Business Management and Research (IBMR), DPU, Dr. D.Y Patil Vidyapeeth, JSPM are some prestigious higher education institutes in and around Wakad. The prestigious IIIT is located just outside Wakad off the Hinjawadi Road. These institutes also attract students from across Maharashtra and India, thus bringing a steady influx of talent and human resources.

For daily amenities residents of Wakad generally shop at either of the 2 D-Mart’s in Aundh & Baner, Reliance Fresh and Big Bazar that are a few minutes’ drive away. Malls in close proximity to Wakad are Westend Mall, Xion, E-Square, PVR Cinemas, Pimpri Central or City Pride as well as the upcoming Phoenix Marketcity in Wakad. The popular family outing destination of Gnanjyothi Savitribai Phule Udyan is in the south along the Wakad-Bhosari BRTS Road. Balewadi Stadium and Gahunje Stadium, both of which host international matches and events, are close to Wakad.

The high streets of Baner & Balewadi, considered to be the usual haunt for many are hardly any distance away from Dange Chowk at Wakad. For those who enjoy culinary delights, there are many multi-cuisine and fine dining options in Wakad, Aundh and Baner such as Sayaji’s Portico, MoMo Cafe at Courtyard by Marriott, Orion Molecular Kitchen and Bar, Hotel Green Park, Nawab Asia, Panchavati Gaurav and many more.

Premium Residential Locale

Wakad is one of the top hotspots of investment in Asia and is one of the fastest growing because of its plush & popular neighbours – Aundh & Baner and connectivity to Mumbai and other business & growth drivers of the city. Dange Chowk, Wakad area has evolved considerably due to its physical and support infrastructure, quality lifestyle that the globetrotters need. Consequently, the demand for quality housing in these areas is high which is also reflective in their price levels which are at least 12-18% higher than the other areas of West (Source: MagicBricks).

For homebuyers looking out for premium apartments with ready lifestyle around and great connectivity, Wakad and its surroundings are the best found residential destination.

Conclusion

Some years ago, after the Lehman Brothers led financial crisis in 2008, homebuyers were looking for affordable options in Pune and that’s when Hinjawadi opened up as a suitable location for those who were looking for good projects with modest budget. This demand mostly came from people who were willing to compromise on civic amenities and lifestyle – still in the process of being planned and developed in Hinjawadi – for absolute proximity to work.

In recent times, though, with a shift in the economy and rise in disposable incomes, homebuyers can afford homes in neighbourhoods with better amenities. While Hinjawadi continues to remain the hub of a majority of the blue collar jobs in Pune, it is still developing and hence lacks some amenities which are easily available in neighbouring Wakad. As a result, a number of IT and ITeS professionals who prefer the convenience of living close to work but at a reasonable cost, and with good medical, educational and lifestyle facilities would consider Wakad. Thus Wakad, is strategically located close to employments centers and enjoys all the conveniences of urban life.

VTP Realty is one of the top developers in Pune having delivered close to 1 million sq. ft. of real-estate spaces in Pune, including residential, commercial, retail and hospitality developments. They are now coming up with a new premium residential offering at Dange Chowk, Wakad. The unique location of VTP Realty’s upcoming project situates it 2 mins away from the Mumbai-Pune highway. However, despite this proximity, the project is away from the main highway and thus ensures residents enjoy good connectivity without the noise and pollution. The new VTP Realty project will thus enjoy good connectivity and lifestyle amenities offered in Wakad and its premium neighbourhood.
