PBEL City – Project Updates as of March 2017

One of the stated aims to the Government of India is to build plenty of smart cities to house the country’s ever increasing population, while providing them all necessities and conveniences at their doorstep. While only time can tell about the success of this promising scheme, it is indeed heartening to note that there are some housing projects that offer ‘smart’ living experiences to residents. This allows the residents to focus on their work and other pursuits. One such complex is PBEL City, near TSPA (APPA) Junction in Hyderabad.

PBEL City is a flagship project of Incor, which is a major player in Hyderabad real estate. Having covered the project from its inception till its current stage, one can say that the developer’s attention to quality and providing effective solutions, without any compromises, is particularly noteworthy. I had the opportunity to visit PBEL City recently (March ’17) and assess for myself the progress this much in demand project has made in the last few months.

PBEL City: Construction Status

Amongst the most eye-catching features in the brochure of PBEL City is that all buildings are named after various precious stones (Platinum, Aurum, Pearl and so on), but are these really jewels worth living in? On the face of it, the answer would be in the affirmative for PBEL City owing to two reasons: the construction quality and meeting delivery timelines. Incor has followed a principle of delivering a home, once it is truly complete in all respects. This works well for customers as well, who would prefer a completed home, considering both the comfort and the safety aspects.

During my visit, I could see that tower F (named Crystal) is nearly complete, with work on the interiors on at full swing. Incor aims to provide possession of the same within a 6-month time frame. The pace of construction of Tower H (named Turquoise) is encouraging and seems to be well on the way to meet its delivery target of 2018. Incor has just announced the pre-launch of its newest tower J (named Amethyst), which will come up next to the clubhouse and swimming pool.

PBEL City: More and better conveniences

Hyderabad has been one of the pioneers of the Indian IT industry, whose techies form the major clientele of PBEL City. This discerning, tech-savvy class of home buyers has a strong need for comfort and convenience for their daily needs and it’s essential that the gated community they reside in is, by and large, self-sufficient in this respect. The planning and execution of PBEL City show how the residents’ needs have been kept at the forefront, with conveniences keeping pace with the buildings coming up and the residents moving in.

Among the stand out features of PBEL City is its large Sewage Treatment Plant (STP), said to be the largest of any residential society in Hyderabad. The treated water is used to maintain the gardens and for other purposes including flushing.

Adding to this is the laundry unit provided by Incor in the complex’s basement, which is currently seeing capacity expansion to address this major need of residents. Incor also has provided an onsite office to help residents in paying bills, arranging for transport facilities for themselves or their guests and other such services, generally provided by a hotel concierge.

PBEL City: Club House and Swimming Pool

The clubhouse of PBEL City is called ‘The Square’, which describes exactly how it will be laid out. Comprising of four blocks each of 10,000 square feet in area (making for a total of 40,000 square feet), the Square, once complete, will be the nerve center of this complex. As of now, two blocks are already up and functional.

We have already covered the large spacious gymnasium in an earlier article. Alongside it now, is a Yoga and Zumba room as well. However, what really caught my eye was the spacious air-conditioned salon catering to both genders as well as the in-house spa.

The swimming pool is often among the most visited amenities in a gated community and PBEL City’s pool is ready for use. Located in the center of ‘The Square’, both the swimming pool and the kids’ pool looked inviting for a quick splash, probably a necessity in the hot weather the city is currently experiencing.

Some of the amenities due to be housed in the under-construction blocks of the clubhouse, have already been provided for residents of PBEL City, such as a day care center and a supermarket for their grocery shopping. These are currently housed at a separate location within the complex and will be moved as soon as the rest of the blocks of ‘The Square’ are completed.

PBEL City: Miscellaneous updates

Construction work has begun on the new ramp for PBEL City, which will subsequently be used for exit only. Incor continues to host community celebrations of major festivals such as Navratri, New Year and other occasions to get residents to form greater social bonds with each other. PBEL City attracts prospective owners as a beacon, with around 250 families having moved here in the last one year alone, taking the number to over 950 occupied homes.

Conclusion

PBEL City is clearly progressing well on all fronts and 950+ families residing here are an attestation of the same. By providing residents convenience, quality homes, safety and the benefit of being located close to their workplaces, this gated community is thriving in west Hyderabad. With more amenities on the horizon and many interested home buyers waiting in the wings, PBEL City could well emerge as a standout destination near TSPA (APPA) Junction and the Outer Ring Road (ORR).

INCOR One City, Kukatpally – Getting off the ground

Incor One City project in Kukatpally, Hyderabad

The city of the Nizams, Hyderabad, is today synonymous with India’s burgeoning IT revolution, which attracts tens of thousands to the city, looking for work. Hitec City and Gachibowli in the western part of the city have emerged as key IT hotspots and have fostered massive infrastructural development in and around them. Unsurprisingly, both residential and commercial real estate projects are coming up with regularity to meet the ever-increasing demand. INCOR, among the most reputable builders in the city, are coming up with their project, One City, in Kukatpally to cater to this segment.

One City is an ambitious project, comprising residential, recreational and commercial spaces. Located in close proximity to the aforementioned IT hubs, the last few months have seen this new project find its feet (literally and figuratively) and start growing upwards. I recently visited the site of One City to get an idea of the progress of the project as well as how would it look, once complete. In this article, I would like to summarize what I had found.

INCOR One City: Construction Updates

It’s been less than a year since the launch of One City in April 2016, but the buzz around the project is unmistakable. INCOR, as can be evinced from their project PBEL City near TSPA (APPA) Junction, has built a strong reputation for project quality and this remains the key focus of One City. For this project, the builder has tied up with some of the top names in the business. Following a tendering process, Tata Projects has been entrusted with project construction around May 2016. One City boasts of architecture by Edifice, design by Semac Consultants, while for landscaping, FHD Group has assisted.

In this relatively short period of time, the construction has begun well and at the time of my visit, was in full swing. The residential area is planned to comprise of 5 towers, of which towers A and B are currently under construction. For both towers, the foundation is in place and the first two levels of the basement, the podium level and three levels of apartments have been constructed. While events such as the heavy monsoon rains in late September 2016 in Hyderabad and the demonetization of high value currency notes may have acted as dampeners, however, these have been successfully overcome and the project is well on the way to meet its first phase target of December 2018. In fact, encouraged by the response to the first two towers, INCOR has just announced the pre-launch of Tower C of the project.

INCOR One City: Apartment Towers Overview

During my visit, I interacted with the onsite team to get an idea of the layout of the towers coming up. Each of the two towers under construction (A and B) as well as C (which is being pre-launched) will comprise of both 2 and 3 BHK homes, built as per the needs of the techies and professionals, who are the main target customer segment of this project.

Towers A and C will comprise 10 apartments per level, while tower B will have 9 apartments per level. In all of these towers, the four corner apartments will each be of 3 BHK configuration. The difference between towers A and C on one hand and tower B on the other lies in the middle apartments: tower B will have 5 (2 units of 3 BHK and 3 units of 2 BHK), while towers A and C will have 6 (comprising 1 additional 2 BHK apartment). In fact, towers A and C can be considered mirror images of each other.

Another point of difference is the unit size of the 3 BHK apartments, with the ones in tower B being larger (saleable area ranging from 1782 – 1931 sq. ft.) due to an additional terrace deck, as compared to those in towers A and C (saleable area of 1592 – 1740 sq. ft.). The 2 BHK units across all towers have roughly similar sizes (1208 – 1442 sq. ft.). Regardless of apartment size and configuration, residents will get numerous facilities in their homes, such as top quality branded fittings, 100% power backup, Wi-Fi and DTH connections by reputed service providers, allowing for a comfortable lifestyle.

INCOR One City: Infrastructural Developments

When choosing a place to live in, a home buyer does not only take into account the project itself, but also would evaluate its surroundings and the available social infrastructure, before coming to a decision. Hence, a mention must be made of the area around the site around One City as well.

The project has good public transport connectivity, being within 1 km from the Hitec City railway station on Hyderabad’s suburban MMTS network. A major game-changer will be the Hyderabad Metro project, which is inching closer to completion and is expected to commence operations soon. One City is located near two lines/corridors of the Hyderabad Metro. With JNTU and Shilparamam stations within 3-4 kms, it promises to sharply reduce travel time to other parts of the city. The improved connectivity is likely to see the property prices of One City appreciate significantly in the near future, offering a good opportunity for a discerning investor or end user.

With major malls such as Forum Sujana Mall and Manjeera Mall located close by as well as supermarkets such as D-Mart, Hyper City, Spar, Metro and More, options are aplenty for prospective One City residents. Also, top quality schools such as Meridian School, Daffodils Public School, Bubbles Play School, Bachpan Play as well as higher educational institutions such as JNTU, NIFT are all located near One City, offering a wealth of opportunities for the residents’ children.

Conclusion

INCOR One City is considered to be among the flagship projects of INCOR and by all indications, has begun strongly. With the design and construction being carried out by well-regarded names in the sector, the developer’s delivery track record and the ever improving social infrastructure in and around the project are very encouraging signs for a prospective home buyer, who is looking for on-time, quality delivery of their dream home.

INCOR Bonsai Homes – Affordable and practical housing in Tellapur

View of Incor Bonsai Homes project complex in Tellapur, Hyderabad

The area of Tellapur in Hyderabad has been in the news time and again. That too for all the right reasons. Once a new kid on the block, Tellapur is now developed enough to take on the areas like Gachibowli, Madhapur and the upcoming Kondapur head on. one will find some of the reputed Hyderabad based developers constructing residential complexes which one can call home in the future. One such project is INCOR Bonsai Homes.

INCOR  is one of the established brands in Hyderabad. After the success of PBEL City, Hyderabadis trust INCOR as a brand and appreciate the professional manner in which the project is executed. Taking advantage of Tellapur’s location, INCOR has set up an apartment complex called Bonsai Homes on the Tellapur road.

INCOR Bonsai Homes: Location & Connectivity

A key factor working to Tellapur’s advantage is the ease of access to Gachibowli (IT and educational hub of Hyderabad) and BHEL (Industrial area), a unique selling point not provided by many other areas in Hyderabad. A little research shows that this land contains a top soil with hard rock located further at the bottom compared to areas like Madhapur and Kondapur. What this means is the water table here is healthier than its counter parts and will be an added advantage during Hyderabad’s harsh summer months and water shortages.

Road leading from Gachibowli to INCOR Bonsai Homes

The best way to reach INCOR Bonsai Homes is to take the scenic road from Gachibowli towards Lingampally (trust me its a lovely drive when the traffic is less), go all the way till you hit the first chowrasta and take a left there. Then drive go onto the massive flyover and turn left at the “T” and then take the first right after coming down the flyover. INCOR Bonsai Homes, will come into view on the right, after travelling 5 more mins. The area is green and the air is fresher compared to that of the more populated areas.

INCOR Bonsai Homes: Project Overview

This is a gated community of 215 apartments, distributed across 4 towers (5 floors each) and comprising of 1, 2 & 3 BHK flats ranging from 633 sq. ft. (smallest 1 BHK) to 1850 sq. ft. (largest 3 BHK). With the current base rate of Rs. 3400 / sq. ft. brings the price of purchase to around Rs. 21 Lakhs for the smallest 1 BHK to Rs. 62.9 Lakhs for the largest 3 BHK. These rates are still lower as compared to similar communities located in Madhapur and Kondapur. All the construction is complete, project is handed over to the society and many of the residents have already settled in.

INCOR Bonsai Homes: Amenities Overview

INCOR Bonsai Homes provides various amenities, which are generally only seen in massive gated communities. Some of these are as follows:

  1. Vastu Compliant – The flats are designed considering vastu and most are East of West facing flats, that have plenty of natural sunlight and ventilation.
  2. Piped gas connection – This is the first I have seen in 5 years of researching real estate projects in Hyderabad.
  3. Lovely clubhouse and a gym, swimming pool, toddler’s pool and outdoor games area.
  4. Solar fencing and power backup
  5. Jogging track for the health conscious

The first impression of INCOR Bonsai Homes, is that of a well maintained gated community and a strong positive vibration of the complex and its surroundings is impossible to miss (for those who believe in it). Walk around inside and one can find a clean, nice and looked after gated community, with many of the inhabitants being from the young and vibrant IT/ITES crowd. The swimming pool was clean and inviting and since some of the residents were enjoying their Sunday morning dip in the pool I didn’t disturb their holiday by taking pics. My wife who accompanied me on this trip defined the complex as a “cute place to live”. Where she has seen cuteness, I found the practicality and comfort of INCOR Bonsai Homes hard to resist.
