Photos are good to look at ...but the reality is Hirco / DLF made their money on business and the poor buyers ( from Rs 50 lacs to Rs 1 crore money ) dont have any social infra outside ..... The water is also having a high salt content and that also is not available now..... Not sure how they will use lorry water for such a large construction...
Apart from this , maintenance will be rs 3500 to rs 7000 every month ( like monthly rent )

A 2 BHK resale flat in saligramam / virugambakkam with fully developed areas and good roads and social infra and many good scools and hospitals at walkable distance and proximity to all key places in city is available at readonable prices of Rs 40 lacs till 70 lacs
Not sure why people preferred to pay rs 25 lacs or more extra at a distant place along with maintenance payment ...

The next generation who inherit the property will prosper more than the children of someone who bought in Saligramam as community living will become the norm during their lifetime. The benefits of planned communities will accrue only when the social infrastructure improve, which I estimate will be at least fifteen years from now at places like Semmenchery. Property rates in these outskirts will appreciate at inflation rate till then.

So, if you want to live for today with lower hassles, pick Saligramam. If you want to bear the pain, you could buy the OMR dream. Of course, you can always buy if it is your second home.

U R absolutely rite.lack of potable water and proper drainage system not only haunts the distant outskirts but even the many core areas of chennai.saligramam and virugambakkam were also lacking social infra 15 years back when these areas sprouted.Chennai is unfit for large multistorey apartment townships.it is better to arrest migration to chennai and go back to good old days of standalone independent houses with wells and septic tanks or ground plus two floors with 8 to 10 flats without lift that was prominent in the eighties.

Prime areas in city are also on the rise every year ...... ( starting from velachery till Ambattur or so ).... Not correct to say that OMR will rise and other places will remain as it is ....Metro is coming only to City at first and then may be after 10 or 15 years it may come to other places..... Hence it ia obvious that prices in city are bound to increase further by 2015 once Metro is fully operational

That's a rather retrograde suggestion....if that happens , in 50 years the urban sprawl would be so much that more than half of Tamilnadu will fall under the Chennai Metropolitan Area.

That may be correct, but all the people in 3500 apartments (10000 people lets say once they move in ) have to come to the road with their vehicles , all to be provided with proper water and drainage facilities....
My friend in Mumbai who is staying in a 40 storey tower told me that the govt told people in high rise towrs to move out due to acute water shortage.... He also yold me that water is coming for only one hour daily

This is not now even 10 to 15 years back. That is when sintex invented the loft tanks. Most of the high rise flats in Mumbai store water in their loft tanks when water is given for 1 hour and then use them for the rest of their day. It is reality.People have to find ways to live with what ever limited natural resources you have in the location. You can't bath in Tamiraparani river as your grandfather did as he did because he lived in Tirunelveli and worked in Fields. Now people want to live in cities, high rises, work in IT and play with Ipad but have to compromise with one bucket of water to bath. (Kalathin kattayam). No point in saying don't build high rises.

Why Chennai is not suitable for high rises and for other cities, it is needed.

I prefer low rises for residential all over India. But is it practical ?

Chennai suburbs can have high rises (in Chennai HR means 15 m to 100 m only)

Common for all India:

Create Urban Infra in the City suburubs and prevent more people coming to CBD.

Create Urban Infra in the districts and prevent migration to State Capitals.

My point was that High rises can be built and maintained if the social infra and facilities and resources are available....
When I visited the Burj Khalifa building in Dubai ( tallest building in the world with 164 floors ) the residents and shoppers told me that there is absolutely no water shortage or electricity shortage or drainage or parking problems.... We are talking abt 14 lane beautiful roads in Dubai...
That was so amazing and visual treat to watch....
Now , people in chennai who have bought in DLF are suffering since, the project already delayed more than one year and other amenities as promised are happening very slowly and may take another one year tocomplete and no water there and EB also problem, 3.5 kms from OMR and monthly maintenance fee rs 4000 to 7000 per month to start with...... and then they paid rs 50 lacs to rs one crore !!

EB na enna ambi?I have seen Hiranandani and DLF projects in Chennai and the given amenities are OK for now.Delays of one to two years is not much if u see the delays for other residential projects in chennai. In Gurgaon and Noida in NCR project delays go up to even more than 5 years including DLF.Chennai sufferes from eternal water problem so such massive residential projects does not suit the place.People in chennai are used to acute water shortages, then how come they bought flats in far away outskirts in Multi storey with large number of flats.Did they think that water comes from heaven

Villas are good since land is registered in your name and also similar to ind. House..
Low budget villas are available after tambaram at around Rs 40 to 60 lacs....
Since India has almost 40% of population in middleclass (50 crores) there will always be demand for low and middle budget group houses
