Valmark Orchard Square – Middle Income Housing in an Envious Neighbourhood

It is not uncommon to find middle income homes given the rate at which projects are being undertaken around the city. Well designed homes planned in a well-equipped complex at a bargain are no longer a surprise, however, most of them lack the convenience of easy access to other parts of the city and proximity to recreational, shopping and dining areas. This is mainly because most of these apartments are situated in a rather premature development. This is now changing with Valmark’s upcoming project, Orchard Square.

The project will hand complete possession by December 2019

Valmark Group for over two decades have been delivering projects and contributing to the real estate sector. One of their projects include the prestigious Residency in Hebbal. Valmark Developers also have joint ventures with several well known real estate companies including Brigade Group, Unitech, Vaishnavi and Valdel Group. Valmark now aims to channel its expertise towards Orchard Square taking birth at the heart of the IT and corporate hub in JP Nagar 8th Phase with neighbours such as Oracle, Honeywell, Accenture, IIMB.
