Since its formation in 1993, Rohan Builders have emerged as among the most prominent developers in the real estate markets of Pune and Bangalore, with a huge variety of projects, which includes luxurious villas and vast apartment complexes. A common thread binding all of their constructions is their focus on the design and engineering of a home. This aspect is clearly visible when one looks at their upcoming project, Rohan Madhuban II, located in Bawdhan in western Pune.
Rohan’s earlier foray in this area was the neighbouring Rohan Madhuban, consisting of well-appointed 3 BHK and 4 BHK luxury villas. Since then, Bawdhan has seen ever-increasing housing demand, driven largely by its neighbouring IT and industrial hubs. Madhuban II targets people employed in these hubs, promising them Rohan’s quality engineering and value for money. We look at certain aspects of the project in this article.
Location & Connectivity
Among the biggest positives of Rohan Madhuban II is its location, among the green hills of Bawdhan, providing a great climate for residents of the complex, apart from excellent views of the surroundings. The site is 1.5 km off Paud Road from the major road intersection of Chandani Chowk, which apart from Paud Road is also a junction to NH4, Pashan Road and NDA Road. Connectivity to various parts of Pune city and the destinations of Lonavala, Mahabaleshwar, Kolhapur and Mumbai is very good.
In addition, the major IT hub of Hinjewadi is around 15-16 km away, while another emerging hub Baner is around 12 km away. The industrial hubs of Pirangut (11 km) and Pimpri-Chinchwad (20 km) can also be reached conveniently by road. Pune Railway Station is 12.5 km away from Rohan Madhuban II, while Pune Airport is around 20 km from the site.
Residents of Rohan Madhuban II can benefit from the infrastructure in Bawdhan, as well as the neighbouring areas of Kothrud, Pashan and Baner. Schools such as Periwinkle English Medium School (State Board, 3 km), Suryadatta School (CBSE, 3.5 km) and Ryan International School (ICSE, 2.5 km) are quality educational institutions. For higher education, there are big names such as Savitribai Phule Pune University (11 km), Flame University (15 km) and Symbiosis International University (17 km).
Options for medical care include Lodha Hospital, Om Hospital and Chellaram Diabetes Institute in Bawdhan or Sahyadri Hospital and Deenanath Mangeshkar Hospital in Kothrud. Malls such as Aditya Shagun Mall and Abhiruchi Mall can be reached easily from the project site as well.
Rohan Madhuban II is to come up on a 3 acre land parcel and will comprise of 5 residential towers, built around a central landscaped area, housing various amenities and open areas to facilitate greater social interactions among residents. Each of the towers will have 14 residential levels, built above 2 levels of parking, with one parking slot being provided per apartment.
The complex will have separate entrances for vehicles and pedestrians. The vehicles will only be allowed on a road, skirting the complex, leading to and from the parking. A separate area will be provided for visitors’ parking.
The podium level will include a clubhouse, gymnasium, swimming and kids’ pool and landscaped gardens. In addition, stepped gardens will be provided. The clubhouse comes with facilities for various indoor games and also is planned to include 2 guest rooms.
Each of the 14 level towers have six apartments per level. All apartments are of 2 BHK and 3 BHK configuration. The saleable area of a 2 BHK apartment is 1030 – 1157 sq. ft., while that for a 3 BHK apartment is 1288 – 1408 sq. ft. All apartments on the podium level come with a private garden. As the project is located in Bawdhan, home prices are a lot more affordable than in neighbouring Kothrud, Pashan and Baner, with a base price of Rs. 5200 – 5400/ sq. ft. Rohan Builders has set a possession date of December 2019 for all buildings.
Rohan prides themselves on being engineers first and the design of Madhuban II, done in collaboration with Salad Dressing of Singapore, bears this out. Rohan follows a design philosophy of a PLUS home (Perfect Ventilation, Lively Light, Utmost Privacy and Smart Space) and the same can be seen in Madhuban II.
Apartments will be open from 3 sides, allowing residents to receive natural air and light in their home. This, combined with the elevated location of the project and the usage of double heighted balconies, ensures that the temperature here will be significantly more pleasant than the neighbourhood.
At the same time, this ‘openness’ does not extend to residents’ privacy, both within and outside their home. There will be spacing of 110 feet between any two buildings. No doors of two apartments on the same level will be either adjacent to or be facing each other, ensuring no eavesdropping. Within a home, the guest bedroom will be segregated from the main bedrooms to ensure privacy within.
Homes in Madhuban II are designed to give residents more liveable space. The homes have fewer internal walls and no passageways. The combined living and dining room next to an open plan kitchen is a manifestation of the same. Even the bedroom layout allows for freedom of movement, storage and any other activities comfortably.
The project is designed to be resistant to earthquakes or other seismic shocks. Each home will be provided a video door phone and intercom facility, while the entrance and common areas will be covered by CCTV round the clock.
Rohan Builders’ design ethos has emerged from its focus on the things that matter most to customers and Madhuban II reflects how the same has been incorporated to create a community-like feel, while at the same time, maintaining residents’ privacy. For home buyers looking for value for money in Bawdhan with a timeframe of 3 years to move into their home, Rohan Madhuban II is an option worth considering.
