A world-class product, planned keeping the contemporary buyer in mind, and delivered on time, is what keeps one hooked onto a particular company or a service provider. When it comes to buying a home, the stakes are manifold in terms of the emotions and basic needs of target customers. Studying the emergence of East Bangalore as the IT hub of India, the need for a fitting residential project in this part of the town was identified by one of the leading real estate developers of the city, the Vaswani Group; the objective was to address the ‘techie’ and entrepreneurial crowd of the city.
With their latest fully-loaded complex, Vaswani Menlo Park, the Vaswani Group has many pleasant delights in store for their customers in terms of convenience and quality living. Here the philosophy has been to plan residences spot in the middle of the many IT/ ITES hubs of Bangalore, which will attract the professionals working in the vicinity. The design and location of the project is greatly inspired by the City of Menlo Park, California, USA, which ranks as one of the most upmarket residential areas in the heart of Silicon Valley.
Vaswani Menlo Park, located in the Kundalahalli, Brookefield area of East Bangalore is surrounded by some of the major IT parks and living here would mean easy accessibility to the work-place. The project is all set to launch in July 2016, and the attractive pre-launch prices have ensured that it features on the discerning home buyer’s hit list. We did a recce of the project site to understand the project better.

Amenities to unwind:
Keeping in mind the sentiments of the end user, almost all homes in Vaswani Menlo Park are vastu compliant. The 5.40 acres of the project site is meticulously planned to have ample green cover in the form of large landscaped gardens for its residents; they will also have access to a mixed bag of amenities, to cater to all age groups of a family. A large outdoor infinity pool along with toddlers’ pool, a fully equipped gymnasium, indoor badminton court, children’s play area, cricket pitch, basketball court, a party hall, spa, indoor games facilities, a multi-purpose play court and many such facilities will ensure a lavish lifestyle for residents here.
Furthermore, a unique concept of work-out-of-home has been introduced while setting up the Vaswani HomeworX, within the Menlo Park complex. A shell not too far from your own home, but away from all the hassle; the television noise, the kitchen clatter, and much more. There are dedicated learning pods even for the studying fellows, insulated from the sound bars & the younger siblings; a place where one can find a focussed period of time without distractions.
Location that allows for healthy work-life balance:
Vaswani Menlo Park is highly advantageous for home buyers looking to maintain a work-life balance. Its location ensures easy accessibility to the Marathahalli – Sarjapur Road ORR as well as ITPL/Whitefield. The presence of major IT parks such as Bagmane World Technology Centre (5.5 kms) on the Outer Ring Road, ITPL (7 kms), WEPPIA (7 kms), Prestige Shantiniketan (8 kms) and other Industrial hubs at Whitefield, which is home to some of the IT giants like TCS, SAP Labs, Mindtree, Qualcomm and core industries such as Schneider Electric, Mercedes Benz and many more adds a distinct edge to the location. Especially in a city like Bangalore which is infamous for traffic pile ups, it is of utmost priority for many to own a residence in vicinity of workplaces.
Live in the midst of social infrastructure:
Shopping malls such as Forum Value mall, Phoenix Market city, Bangalore Central, as well as the recently refurbished Vaswani Brookefield Mall to name a few are within 7 kms distance of Vaswani Menlo Park. The popular Vibgyor School at Marathahalli is just opposite to the project site and well-established schools such as Delhi Public School, National Public School amongst others are in driving distance. Hospitals such as Yashomati, Brookefield, Columbia Asia are within a 6 km radius of the project.
The proximity to National Highway 7, Outer Ring Road, Varthur Road, Bellandur and many other connecting roads, provide easy access to other parts of the city. The proposed metro stations at Whitefield will provide an easy, alternate means of transport to the Central Business District and other areas of the city. The Kempegowda International Airport is 48 kms away and can be reached via the National Highway 7.
Vaswani, the developer, is in possession of all relevant approvals for carrying out the construction of the Menlo Park project. The work at the site is likely to commence by August-September 2016. The approach road to the project site will be laid out in coming days, with close to 75% work already complete, as all roadblocks to its development seem to be cleared now.
Thereby, Vaswani Menlo Park is being scanned by a gamut of interested buyers for its apt location, pricing, and the Vaswani brand.
The group is not new to this geography either – Whispering Palms, Ashton Woods, Bell Air, Tranquil, Melrose, and Pinnacle have completed properties in the area while Brentwood and Exquisite are ongoing projects by the developer.
