Both Gurgaon & Noida To Gain Greatly From Improved Infrastructure

(Previously published on 8th Dec, 2018 in the Delhi edition of DNA Property Newspaper.)

Gurgaon and Noida are two of the best planned cities in northern India. They are also very important real estate markets adjacent to South and Central Delhi. Both these twin markets are very versatile in terms of the wide variety of residential choices they offer to investors and end users. These include villas, bungalows, apartments, penthouses and plots. Both, Gurgaon and Noida are also set to gain a lot from the much improved infrastructure around them.

Gurgaon gains a lot from the presence of BFSI, ITeS & Manufacturing sector while Noida has largely ITeS & Manufacturing companies spread across its SEZs. Several MNCs and large domestic firms – Cognizant, Google, Maruti, Honda Motors and many more have operations in these twin cities. As a result of these excellent job opportunities, many young professionals and working families throng to these cities. They also benefit greatly from the top notch schools, colleges & hospitals located here as well as numerous avenues for shopping and recreation; some of the largest malls in the country are located in Noida and Gurgaon.

With the completion of the Gurgaon leg of the Dwarka Expressway travel and connectivity has received a big boost. For residents and office goers in Gurgaon, this will be a big relief. Further enhancements under the Bharatmala Highway Project such as an elevated 23 km stretch of the Expressway, various connections which connect the elevated portion to different parts of Gurgaon, and the tunnel connectivity to the IGI airport will further boost connectivity in Gurgaon. Work on a cloverleaf 500 metres from the Kherki Daula toll plaza will begin soon and is expected to decongest daily traffic at this major junction.

Noida’s big pain point was connectivity to the IGI Airport and Terminal 1, but with the new Magenta line things have become much smoother, as one can get down at Terminal 1 and access all of South Delhi easily. Further extension work of metro till Greater Noida will connect some of the best residential sectors & Peripheral Business Districts in this city. The 56 km Faridabad-Noida-Ghaziabad Expressway (FNG) will further augment road connectivity while the newly inaugurated Eastern Peripheral Expressway provides Delhi-Greater Noida connectivity. The new Jewar airport in Greater Noida is expected to provide an alternate air travel option and ease traffic at the IGI.

Good town planning, excellent multi-modal transport and a growing commercial demand has led to some of the country’s leading developers choosing Gurgaon and Noida for development. Top names including Tata Housing, Sobha, Godrej, Shapoorji Pallonji have now found a stronghold in these markets, while several more are supposedly scouting for land.

Land prices as well as product prices have softened over the last 3 years, this gives a good chance for end buyers and investors to enter this market, the most sought after one in north India.

TATA Housing Primanti – Clubhouse and SPR Updates

tata primanti updates

After the successful delivery of TATA Raisina Residency in Sector 59, TATA Housing is in the process of concluding development of building exteriors and finishing works on TATA Housing Primanti in Sector 72, Gurgaon. Around 30 families have already moved in, after the handover of apartments in Towers 3 and 4. Possession has been offered in select executive floors, villas and executive apartment blocks, which have their occupancy certificate in place at this premium-segment project. The project also has its RERA registration No. 98.

Since our team’s last visit to Primanti in September 2016, considerable progress has also taken place on the Southern Peripheral Road, which provides convenient access to the site from NH8 as well as from Golf Course Road. TATA Housing Primanti also happens to be the only premium residential apartment in the neighbourhood with unmatched luxury amenities and dwelling units themed around a ‘garden estate’.

TATA Housing Primanti – Growth and Development of Southern Peripheral Road

Southern Peripheral Road (SPR), which also includes Golf Course Extension Road, begins from Sector 58 near Ghata Village and merges with NH 8 near Sector 75A. Both SPR and NPR (Northern Peripheral Road, or Dwarka Expressway) combined would create a ‘ring-road’ like profile around Gurgaon and thereby ease the flow of traffic on NH8. The Golf Course Extension Road has been operational for over two years now, while major roadblocks on the SPR have been cleared between May to July 2017.

Nearly 55 ongoing and completed residential projects, and more than 10 commercial buildings are situated along the SPR from Sector 69 to Sector 75A. This portion begins precisely at the intersection of SPR and Sohna Road (or NH 248-A) right after Sectors 48-68, which is also known as “Vatika Chowk”. Rapid Metro near Sector 55-56 which links SPR to Sikanderpur and Cyber City is also functional, while underpasses on Golf Course Road have been opened to commuters.

In the recent past, where much of the SPR was operational already, 16 land owners at ‘Rambir ki Dhani’ (near Sector 49) who occupied an 800 metres long stretch were relocated and rehabilitated in April 2017 to alternate plots allotted to them by HUDA. With the last-mile repair works on a 400 m stretch from Badshahpur to Rambir ki Dhani, SPR will become a 150 m wide thoroughfare. Some of the major future developments proposed along the SPR include:

  • Expansion of Delhi Metro line from HUDA Metro Station to NH8 via SPR
  • Proposed underpass near Vatika Chowk which will make SPR a signal-free corridor for the high traffic volume anticipated on this route. The underpass would be just about a kilometre from Primanti.
  • Sectors 71, 73, 74 and 75 have been designated as commercial districts along SPR, making it a highly developed property market

Schools, commercial buildings and Vatika Chowk on Southern Peripheral Road

TATA Housing Primanti is at the crossroads of key developments taking place in Gurgaon and hence provides access to well-established infrastructure not only in terms of transport networks, but also robust social infrastructure. Hospitals such as Medanta, Alchemist, Paras, Fortis and Max; schools such as Amity, Presidium, GD Goenka, The Shri Ram School, St. Xavier’s High School and DPS International are with 2-10 km driving distance from Sector 72 and different parts of SPR. Driving to IGI Airport-Terminal 3 from Primanti (25.4 km) would generally take 45 minutes while the nearest Rapid Metro station is less than a 15 minutes’ drive in Sector 55-56 (7.5 km).

The outlook for future development of the Southern Peripheral Road only looks brighter with respect to both medium term and long term, strengthening Tata Primanti’s uniqueness as a luxury project in a highly sought-after premium neighbourhood.

TATA Housing Primanti – A ‘Garden Estate’

Extensive water bodies, themed landscaped gardens and parks are the highlights of Tata Housing Primanti, hence it is titled as a “Garden Estate”. Manicured lawns, tree-lined boulevards, and inter-linked meadows lend a calm, refreshing vibe where modern architecture blends effortlessly with the natural setting.

Landscaping with pergolas and native species of trees around the tower residences

There is hardly any other residential complex in this area which has lush landscaping on a grand scale, while being located on an arterial road inside the city limits. The 36 acres verdant site of TATA Housing Primanti is organised into two segments marked by two distinct phases:

  1. Phase 1 – Northern segment, which has mainly villas (both small and large), executive floors and executive apartments (11 or 9 storeys blocks), along with two tower residences of 38 and 40 storeys, and a school building.
  2. Phase 2 – Southern segment, which is closer to SPR and has the residential towers # 3 to 7. These vary in heights from 22 floors to 38 floors, mainly comprising 3 BHK apartments. Tower 7 only has 4 BHK units and presently hosts the sales office & sample flat. Phase 2 also houses the 3-level clubhouse, swimming pool, central garden of 5 acres and low-rise blocks (G+3) of executive floors. The towers are placed in the midst of inter-connected formal gardens and squares.

Mid-rise blocks and Tower Residences with Helipad (Tower 4) and ACP finish

The high-rise 38+ storey residential towers also have a helipad, and aluminium composite panel (ACP) finish in rich yet sober colours on the façade. Keeping the convenience and comfort of the residents a foremost priority, the site is provided with dedicated facilities for community shopping, primary school and a proposed nursery school. The children’s play areas are surrounded by abundant greenery that would allow kids to grow and explore in a healthy environment. In addition, residents at the “Garden Estate” would be able to cherish contemplative moments of quiet as well as effervescent interaction with other members of the community at the “Mondrian Park” in Phase 1, based on the popular namesake park in New York City.

TATA Housing Primanti – Apartment Configurations & Ongoing Possession

With finishing works drawing to a close in the last few towers, over 20 families have already moved in to 3 BHK apartments in Towers 3 and 4 (Phase 2). These towers had obtained occupancy certificate in advance. Possessions have also commenced at executive floors (Block D & E), at Executive Apartments (Block E) and in Villas (Block E). In other towers, internal finishing, external finishing and ACP cladding (for high-rise towers) on façade are in progress. Final stage external development works and site landscaping around other towers are also about to be completed as per the scheduled time-frame.

These premium residences are placed within a parkland setting having elevated courtyards, open terraces and private gardens. There are only 1,105 units in total on a 36 acres site, ensuring only ~31 families per acre. This is an uncommon feature in this part of the city, which is witnessing rapid urbanization.

Broadly, 3 kinds of dwelling units are being provided at TATA Primanti, whose typologies, special features, carpet areas and prices are discussed herewith. Executive Floors are housed in G+3 storey blocks (with elevators). Two G+1 units feature 4 bedrooms and green landscaped gardens.

As defined by TATA Housing, the 25,000 square feet Club House which is spread across 3 floors, has two distinct type of spaces – rejuvenation zone and refreshing zone – which are the epitome of luxurious living.

The ‘rejuvenation zone’ encompasses an outdoor swimming pool, indoor sports facilities like squash and badminton courts, and a well-equipped gym that has separate cardio and weights sections with a view of the outdoor pool. The indoor sports rooms are double-height spaces which receive ample natural light through tall, clerestory windows. Yoga/meditation hall and the trendy, contemporary-style gym are located on the top floor of the club, which also has an outdoor multi-cuisine restaurant. Other unique amenities for rejuvenation at Primanti include:

  • Spa finished in exotic East-Asian themed interiors, having facilities like massage rooms, sauna and steam
  • A temperature-controlled indoor pool next to the spa
  • Semi-outdoor relaxation lounge and spacious changing rooms with lockers

The ‘Refreshing Zone’ boasts of a second pool-side restaurant in the clubhouse which also has an extended café and juice bar. In addition, there is a well-furnished audio-visual room with best of class acoustical treatment, plush seating and advanced equipment. A gourmet roof-top restaurant has been planned on the 40th floor of Tower 2 (Phase 1). An expansive entrance lounge, spaces for table tennis and billiards, and smart access controls complete the refreshing experience.

Latest pictures of the Club House (July 2017) and the premises bear testimony to TATA Housing’s commitment in creating remarkable facilities that provide a rich, unmatched quality of life.

Concluding Remarks

TATA Housing Primanti is located in Sector 72 along Southern Peripheral Road (SPR), a key motorway in Gurgaon that crosses several important landmarks. With the completion of Dwarka Expressway or NPR, the two would provide unparalleled convenience in terms of connectivity and would also uplift the overall profile of residential and commercial establishments alongside. TATA Housing’s Primanti is a premium residential development of its kind on this important node of the city. Within the premises, residents have access to abundant greenery, ultra-luxury amenities and several other avenues for fitness and leisure. The ‘Garden Residences’ in the form of apartments, villas and duplex floors have already started welcoming residents to experience the delightful living atmosphere created here.

La Vida – A project by Tata Housing and Sidhartha Developers

Wellness Living at TATA La Vida sector 113 gurgaon

Etymology traces the origin of the Spanish phrase “La Vida” to ‘vivir’, which means ‘(the) life’. With the purpose of enhancing residents’ quality of life through holistic wellness features, TATA Housing has begun work on La Vida ‘estate residences’ in Sector 113, Gurgaon, close to Dwarka Expressway. In a previous article, Propstory had brought updates during pre-launch phase of the project (2016) and wrote extensively about the benefits of the location, highlighting the uniqueness of La Vida and other projects by TATA Housing. The last week our team was in Sector 113 again to explore the qualitative parameters that define wellness living at TATA La Vida. The project already has a pre-certified “Gold” rating from the Indian Green Building Council. In addition to achieving larger goals like conservation of energy, IGBC also aims to ‘enhance occupants’ health, happiness and overall well-being’ by incorporating green building features that foster a pollution-free environment. The project has also received it RERA registration No. 148.

Phase 1 of the project comprises 6 towers B1-B6, where bookings have already started for towers B1-B4. Blocks A1 and A2 would be part of Phase 2. A visit to the on-site sales gallery provided comprehensive information on the wellness features such as:

  • Apartment specific – Advanced air and water purifiers, Vitamin-C infused showers and use of non-toxic paints. To begin with, they are being introduced in apartments in Tower B1.
  • Applicable to Common areas – Over 1000 trees in a 6+ acres central green area and in sunken gardens; fruit orchards; water plazas and lily pool; elevated skywalk with tree-houses, and a Club house which has spa, steam and sauna along with gym, swimming pool and sports amenities

In place of opulence and external grandeur, day-by-day the focus is shifting towards leading a sustainable lifestyle and promoting responsible luxury through environmentally-conscious communities. The design of the sales gallery itself resonates with the overall wellness theme nestled in green environs. As of July 2017, earthworks have commenced on site and La Vida estate residences would be delivered less than 4 years from now, by early 2021.

Wellness Living at TATA La Vida : The Theme and the Setting

Future residents can make a choice to live healthy and get aboard TATA La Vida

TATA Housing’s endeavour is to create a nature-friendly atmosphere at a site which is strategically located between Delhi and Gurgaon. Sector 113 indeed has excellent connectivity via a network of arterial roads.

In future when infrastructure development speeds up and traffic in this area escalates, living amidst 12 acres of sprawling greens with 1,000 trees at La Vida may be akin to winning a health-lottery!

TATA Housing is leading the way by incorporating an average of more than 80 trees per acre, proving their commitment to wellness living at TATA La Vida.

The presence of trees is known to have a substantial positive effect on the micro-climate of a site. The arrangement of the residential 8 towers in the site ensures every room has a view of green areas while the interiors receive ample natural light and fresh air.

Wellness Living at TATA La Vida : Green building for Sustainable Living

Natural light and clean air may sound like necessities we sometimes take for granted, but with increasing pollution in cities, the two are almost luxuries and key to wellness. In sync with these objectives, as discussed earlier, the project has already attained a “Gold” rating by the Indian Green Building Council for incorporating nature-friendly features. A pre-certified “Gold” rating implies national level of excellence in key areas of sustainable design and planning such as:

  • Site Selection and Planning – situated in proximity of transport nodes, such as Dwarka Sector 21 Metro at 8 km, which takes 18 minutes to reach. New metro station is proposed within 3 km of the site.
  • Water Conservation – water retention ponds and rainwater harvesting
  • Building Materials and Resources – best of the class materials sourced within local limits
  • Indoor Environmental Quality – worth noting is the use of air and water purifiers, and non-toxic paints in interiors
  • Innovation and Development
  • Energy Efficiency

Further we discuss in details all the specific eco-living features that emphasize balance between smart technology (high speed elevators, video phone, renewable energy) and a health positive atmosphere. Additional characteristics like earthquake resistant structure and multi-tier security also facilitate peace of mind in a secure society which is indispensable to wellness.

Wellness Living at TATA La Vida : Indoor Features in Apartments

World over, there is a paradigm shift happening towards indoor spaces that are well integrated with natural elements. These include bespoke wellness apartments designed by alternative medicine advocates that are endorsed even by celebrities who encourage sustainable living.

‘Estate Residences’ at La Vida embrace and promote the tenets of eco-living, which is the founding philosophy of the design. Since occupants spend most of their time indoors while at home, great care has been taken to provide a refreshing atmosphere.

Well ventilated lobbies and floor-to-ceiling-windows that blend interiors with the outdoors ensure harmony with nature. The wide running balconies can serve as break-out spaces for parties, or they have niches for quiet contemplation when in solitude. More active mechanisms will first be provided in Block B1. They include advanced air & water purifiers and Vitamin C infused showers that neutralize the excess chloride in water. Effective air filtration cleanses and enhances indoor spaces by removing allergens (pollen, pet dander), dust, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and pathogens from the air.

Muted colour palettes used in the interiors are synonymous with luxury residences and reinforce the quality of calmness. The meticulous planning and attention to details have attempted to enrich both interior and exterior spaces with vitality – to the extent that future residents would hardly need to go to spa resorts or on ‘healing holidays’ to reinvigorate their everyday lives. ARCOP Associates, the Canada-based internationally acclaimed practice with 3 offices in Delhi-NCR, are the architects behind the design for wellness living at TATA La Vida.

Wellness Living at TATA La Vida : External Landscaping

Outdoor areas are indispensable to healthy living as they provide avenues to stay healthy. The three major elements of nature – namely earth, aqua and the firmament. are invoked through herbal gardens and stepped seating, water plazas and lily pool, and elevated sky-walk with tree houses – have been invoked in the external landscaping features.

To soothe drawn-out senses after a long day at work and commute, TATA La Vida is providing sunken gardens and grass terraces where users could meditate or read. The 1000 trees and green central area of more than 6 acres, lined with jogging trails and landscaped pathways amalgamate both recreation and comfort of the highest order.

Other interesting and novel features incorporated in the development plan include fruit tree bosques (forested orchards), feature wall, art installation plaza, party lawn and barbecue lawn, which will make regular life eventful within a dynamic and vibrant community.

Wellness Living at TATA La Vida : Pivotal Role of Amenities

For the fitness oriented, TATA La Vida is a health-haven with a wide range of amenities like gymnasium, outdoor sports courts and swimming pool. For less energy-intensive modes of entertainment, there is a clubhouse with billiards room, AV room, reading lounge and a cards table. Food enthusiasts can savour culinary wellness at the café or at the coffee niches.

The yoga and meditation room provide a spiritually-vibrant atmosphere while the spa pampers through hydro-therapy in the form of steam bath, sauna and massage areas.

For the convenience of young parents and kids, there are both a nursery and a primary school proposed inside the premises. The central greens also have a kids’ play area to enhance both physical and emotional well-being, and nurture a healthy growth of the youngsters.

The state-of the art amenities for wellness living at TATA La Vida combine traditional methods with modern techniques to maintain a sustainable long-term balance in all walks of life.

Conclusion

Spatial design characteristics have a profound impact on the mind and are hence indispensable to both emotional and physical well-being. At TATA La Vida, great care has been taken to ensure that future residents of all age groups have avenues to live a healthy and balanced life. With prices starting at Rs. 1.08 Crores for 2, 2.5 and 3 BHK apartments, the project is reasonable for the kind of luxury it offers. Very few projects are centred around human wellness, which La Vida has taken utmost care to accomplish through the creation of a tranquil urban retreat.

Gurgaon Gateway by TATA | Dwarka Expressway

TATA Gurgaon Gateway sector 112

Aptly named Gurgaon “Gateway”, this luxury TATA Housing project is the first major development on the road that connects Dwarka in New Delhi to Gurgaon. Just few meters from the MCD Toll booth in Sector 112, it heralds Dwarka Expressway’s emergence as the new sought-after address in NCR. Tata Gurgaon Gateway is in final stages of completion with interior and landscaping works in full-swing. It will be delivered by June 2018. The project is a joint venture between Sidhartha Buildhome and TATA Housing. As of July 2017, only 10-12 apartments are available in Phase 1, while few more can be booked in Phase 2, which mainly has 3 BHK units (2,215 sq ft saleable area). These have a starting price of Rs. 2.4 crores, all inclusive with 2 parking slots.  Shared in this article are photos from our site visit and other important details.

TATA Gurgaon Gateway : Location & Social Infrastructure

Sector 112 is one of the first major residential neighbourhoods as we enter Gurgaon from Dwarka side. Across the 60 m wide Bajghera-Najafgarh Road, there is another upcoming project TATA La Vida, right opposite Gurgaon Gateway. Mainly composed of vast empty expanses of greenery, Sector 112 is not only the “Gateway” to Gurgaon, but also a ‘getaway’ from the dense urban sprawls of Delhi and other parts of NCR.

TATA Gurgaon Gateway sector 112 gurgaon
Proximity to other ready-to-move residential projects on Dwarka Expressway

Connectivity is ensured by the very arterial thoroughfare on which TATA Gurgaon Gateway is located. An interesting feature is that the triangulated plot is located at the intersection of Bajghera Road, and another 60 m wide sector road which turns rightwards to merge with the Delhi stretch of the 150 m wide Dwarka Expressway. Currently this (recently declared) National Highway, also known as Northern Peripheral Road, is 1.5 km from the project site.

TATA Gurgaon Gateway sector 112 gurgaon
60 m wide approach road (Bajghera-Najafgarh) and 7.5 m wide driveways inside the premises

Sector 21 Metro (Blue Line and Express Metro) is 8 km from here. After completion of the Delhi stretch of Dwarka Expressway, this distance would reduce to 5 km. The office hub of Cyber City on NH8 presently takes about 25 minutes to reach. The current distance of 14+ km would be shortened to 11 km after the works on Bajghera Railway-Crossing flyover gets wound up in 2018. That is also the time when handovers of the flats would take place. IGI Airport T-3 is about 16 kms. Sector markets of Palam Vihar (3-4 km) and Ansal Plaza are presently the nearest retail hubs.

TATA Gurgaon Gateway sector 112 dwarka expressway
Vacant plots and green belt along sector road – Boundary wall of Gurgaon Gateway and ‘VSR 114’ Avenue are visible

A more convenient way to reach all parts of NH 8 is through the Najafgarh-Kapashera Road. The down side while going by a taxi/cab is that toll is charged for entering Delhi border. But for private vehicles this is unarguably the best route with well-maintain roads that whiz past vast expanses of farmhouses, most of them converted to picturesque wedding venues. Delhi Tourism is also upgrading the Haritima Tourist Complex, about 1 km from TATA Gurgaon Gateway in Chhawla-Kanganheri. It will have water sports, camping and adventure sports facilities.

Sector 112-113 has access to Dwarka (New Delhi) as well as Dwarka Expressway in Gurgaon (Tata Housing website)

Being located at the “gateway” translates into benefits of both worlds : well-planned sectors of New Delhi and the upcoming buzz on Dwarka Expressway in Gurgaon. The social infrastructure is seeing rapid development around Tata Gurgaon Gateway. VSR 114 Avenue, a commercial and office building in mid-stages of construction, is diagonally opposite to the site and is within walking distance. With three other major upcoming projects (Nimai Place, Chintels Cosmopolis, KST Urban Suites) in adjoining Sector 114, Gurgaon Gateway will serve as the point of entry to commercial and office spaces too. Kimberly Suites, a serviced-apartments and retail project, is being built less than 500 metres from the rear-side entry of Tata Gurgaon Gateway.

Metro Hospital in Pocket H, Palam Vihar, is the closest healthcare centre at 3.1 km. As far as schools are concerned, there are several located within a 5-6 km radius along the railway line near Chauma village and in New Palam Vihar. These include but are not limited to DPS, Gurukul Pre-school, Little Angels, Shemrock and New Cambridge Public School. Other schools like Delhi International or the Indian Heights in Dwarka Sector 23 are 7.8 km away.

TATA Gurgaon Gateway : Project Overview

There would hardly be a soul in India who is not familiar with the TATA brand. Established in 1984, TATA Housing Development Co. Ltd. is a public limited company and a subsidiary of TATA Sons Limited (which in turn is the holding company of the Tata conglomerate). TATA Housing has a strong presence in all major cities like Mumbai (head-quarters), Kolkata, Bangalore, Pune, Chennai, Goa, Gandhinagar, Kochi, Thane, Bhubaneswar and Noida, with commercial, residential and retail projects. Gurgaon itself has two well-known completed projects namely, Tata Raisina and Tata Primanti.

While work on TATA La Vida is gaining momentum, Gurgaon Gateway is set to be a remarkable project on the Delhi-Gurgaon border. It is a joint venture with Gurgaon-based Sidhartha Buildhome, which has a small but strong portfolio of commercial and residential projects mainly on Dwarka Expressway in Sectors 95, 82-A, 103 and 113-14.

With a total of 330 units on a 10 acres site, TATA Gurgaon Gateway would have low to medium density occupation with only 33 families per acre.

The aim is to provide a unique lifestyle with modern green architecture (IGBC Gold Rated), and to set new benchmarks in luxury living. Although it is one of the most expensive residential projects in this part of Gurgaon (@ Rs. 11,200+ per sq ft), the scale of lavish features that it incorporates could easily push the prices up by 10-15% if it were located in other areas like Golf Course Extension Road.

TATA Gurgaon Gateway sector 112 dwarka expressway
Height Variations (Tower D)

The site has an assortment of six towers (A, B, C, D, E & F) in heights varying from 6 to 24 floors. Towers A and B (Phase 2) will have 3 BHK flats with 4 to a core, while Towers C-F (Phase 1) have 2.5 and 3 BHK flats with only 3 per floor.

As of July 2017, interior finishing works in club house and Phase 1 are going on, while structural works have concluded in Phase 2.

The TATA Housing team has already applied for occupancy certificate for 3 towers OF Phase 1. They would be handed over by middle of next year (2018).

TATA Gurgaon Gateway : Apartment Types and Prices

With a “green luxury” concept inspired by the ‘Hanging Gardens of Babylon’, TATA Housing appointed Singapore based HBD Architects to craft a variety of apartments across a gradient of 6 to 24-storey towers. The project also has a pre-certified “Gold” rating from Indian Green Building Council.

All 3 BHK apartments feature running balconies with wooden deck flooring and glass handrails, large double-glazed sliding windows, split ACs in all rooms and wooden flooring in all bedrooms. A unique feature of the large 3 BHK (2,780 sq ft onward) is a semi-outdoor buffer verandah between lift lobbies and entrance foyers of the apartments.
