Shivajinagar – The home for everything!

Shivajinagar – An area that has derived its name from the famous king of the Maratha Empire Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, is a place that boasts of a rich history. It is said that one mark of a complete Punekar is that he/she is sure to belong from Shivajinagar! Today, this place is the centre of the metropolitan city of Pune. If one thinks that central part of the city is full of congestion and lacks high end amenities that are available only in suburban development, then probably this article will serve as an eye-opener.

Let’s travel on!

  1. Location – Shivajinagar is the centre of Pune and is at the confluence of major roads such as Old Mumbai Pune highway, Wellesly road, Sangamwadi Road and Jangali Maharaj (JM) road. Talking about connectivity, Shivajinagar is well connected by city buses with a high frequency to areas like Koregaon Park, Hadapsar, Pune Camp, Peth area and Vishrantwadi that are in the range of 4-9 kms from Shivajinagar. Areas like Pimpri-Chinchwad, Baner, Hinjewadi and Wakad that are more than 10 kms from Shivajinagar are also well connected by 4-6 lane highways and flyovers for a speedy journey. The Shivajinagar railway station and Shivajinagar bus terminal are the major nodes for starting your travel to any corner of Pune or to most places in Maharashtra.

  2. Education, Healthcare and Employment – Shivajinagar is a focal point of educational facilities. A recent study has shown that Shivajinagar is a home for about 2-2.5 lac students, pursuing all types of education. The timeline of educational facilities in Shivajinagar goes back a long way of nearly 200 years. The College of Engineering, Pune and Fergusson College are among the biggest names in the country, providing quality education since 2 centuries. Also Modern high school and Modern College, AISSMS College, Pune University and also various established coaching institutes that cater to competitive examinations have their stand in Shivajinagar. Multi-speciality hospitals such as Sancheti Orthopaedics, Hardikars, and Sahyadri are providing healthcare facilities to the citizens since past many years.

    Major IT firms such as L&T Infotech, TCS, Wipro, Endocto therms located in the Godrej Eternia complex are major employers of Punekars. World class showrooms like Audi, Range Rover, Ace Perkins and all branded clothing and accessory showrooms provide for the young generation demands and needs.

  3. Amenities and Recreation – Shivajinagar has a major population of youngsters and hence, is a major recreation centre with malls like Pune Central, Shoppers’ Stop and Deccan Centre. Phoenix Market City mall, Inorbit mall and Amanora Town Centre are within a radius of 10kms. JM road and FC road are like a hotspot for foodies. Right from foreign outlets like MacD, KFC, and Dominoes to desi hotels like Deccan dhaba, Wadeshwar and the choice of Bollywood superstars ‘Vaishali’ is a dainty in Shivajinagar. Street shopping is another feature of this area.IMG_3583

  4. Existing Residential Projects – Coming to the housing sector, Shivajinagar is observed to have mixed housing patterns. Since the peth area is in close proximity of Shivajinagar, the typical Wada structures are observed. But with modernization this housing pattern has evolved into high rise buildings touching the sky. The COEP hostel building- an 11 floored structure made with use of completely sustainable materials in its construction catches ones attention. As Shivajinagar is a destination of students and young working professionals the major home buyers belong to this category and are mostly tenants.

    Renowned builders in today’s real estate have their stand in Shivajinagar. Some of the notable projects are:

     

  5. Upcoming Residences – For those who think the centre of the city has become old and cannot support any new infrastructure, think again. One site visit in and around Shivajinagar and one will find many residential projects coming up right in the heart of the area. Some of the sites under construction are:

  • Guardian Celine by Guardian developers is a single 6 floored tower with 12 units that offers spacious and skillfully designed 3BHK and 4BHK flats.
  • Callisto Apartments by Prathamesh Constructions offers a choice of 2, 3 & 5 BHK premium apartments coming up in the premium area of Deccan – JM road.
  • Opus Condominium by Surana & Bhansali developer is a single 5 floored tower that offers exclusively 20 units of spacious 3BHK apartment’s right in the centre of the city.
  • Oro Vista – Lohia Jain developers is an 11 floored tower that offers 3 and 4BHK apartments with a promised possession till 2019.IMG_3618

All the upcoming residential projects have their focus on apartments comprising units more than 3BHK. These projects offer all the conveniences but cost not less than 1.5 crore. For those who wish to stay as a tenant the rent costs more than 25,000/month.

The available conveniences for those staying in Shivajinagar are not less whether it be shopping, education, recreation, business or work. All these conveniences have thus pushed up the real estate prices in this area. As the proposed Pune Metro traverses through Shivajinagar, it is also one of the reasons for high real estate prices.

To conclude, the upcoming residential projects in Shivajinagar are a blend of modern styles of architecture and inclusive of all essential amenities. But affordability is thus an issue for the middle income groups which is the only drawback of this area.
