ETA unveils residential complex

http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/...ow/1309003.cms

Dubai construction major ETA Star on Saturday launched the first environment certified 1.6 million sq ft residential complex in Bangalore "The Gardens".

"This is the first residential project cleared by the Union Ministry of Environment and Forest", Syed M Salahuddin, the company's Managing Director told reporters.

"The gardens will have energy efficient sustainable architecture and incorporate eco friendly features including rain water harvesting, solid waste management, harnessing of solar energy and maximum green cover", he said.

ETA star property developer, the real estate arm of ETA Ascon, a multi-dimensional, diversified organisatiobn based in Dubai, with a turnover of over $2.4 billion , is looking at an investment of Rs 450 crore in India over a five-year period, Salahuddin said.

The majority of inhabited accommodation will be at or above the tree canopy level which characterizes this ‘development in the sky’.

Tower Block Elevations Each tower is a 19 storey construction. Towering with purpose The Gardens comprise of ten tower blocks, each boasting a unique and spectacular view of the development. Offering a calming refuge from the heat and dust of the city, this project is based on a unique structural design. The east-west oriented towers are of different heights and have two wings around an atrium space. This innovation ensures that excessive solar gain is avoided, keeping apartments cool. It also ensures that winds are directed all around the estate, promoting air circulation. Each apartment’s internal environment is thus shaded, cool and comfortable - without air conditioning. And to be further responsive to Bangalore’s beautiful climate, each tower is endowed with charming sky gardens at every 6th, 12th, and 18th floor.

All towers are also interconnected by bridges - so when you want to visit a neighbour, you don't have to go all the way down, but simply walk across the linking bridge to where you want to be. The combined benefits of having ten huge towers also include the provision of an ample covered car parking area.

That's very nice looking, especially at night. And though its a Dubai company, the buildings reflect Indian architecure, and modern south Indian highrise styles, and not some garish pseudo-Arabian mishmash that characterizes Dubai companys' construction around the world.

Whats also cool to me is that they appear to be renderings that incorporate the actual surrounding areas. Tho its a sad thing when builders are calling 19 storey towers as a 'development in the sky'.

Progeon @ infy campus is supposed to be ready, as per the info from Sobha Developers website. The only striking difference is, that the render shows it as a 6+ storey complex, whereas, according to Sobha it's only ground + 3. So, were the plans altered at the construction stage? If so, the actual building won't look like this:http://www.hafeezcontractor.com/corp...sprogeon.html#

I hope that ain't true. If the design stays relatively the same, it won't look nearly as good in 3 storeys as six.

For posterity's sake (that's fast becoming my favorite phrase), here's the link to sobha developers's Progen info
http://www.sobhadevelopers.com/proje...tracts/49.html

I'll post some of the other projects listed there tomorrow, unless someone beats me to it. I hadn't before realized that Sobha's website had a list of commercial projects.


Cheers,
Jai

Sobha is doing all the meaty stuff for Infy Baby! And what's more, they seem to be completing their projects on an average in less than 9 months. To be constructing and selling directly, 2000 apartments annually in Bangalore, says alot about: the size, the ambition and the success of this company. Their average apartment is selling for 50-60 lakhs, now that in itself gives us a turnover of 1200 crore rupees from asingle segment of the construction sector. Add to it: retail, contract work and commercial space, and you begin to get a humungous picture of a group, that's hardly known outside the state of Karnataka.

There are many more DLF's in the country than we actually care to think about.

I thought these chaps were promising to complete the first phase by this year end. This was announcd by the company once the HC judgement had gone in their favor.

Peripheral road of BMIC to be ready by July next year

http://www.hindu.com/2005/11/30/stor...3019430400.htm

BANGALORE: After years of legal wrangles, clearance delays and much else, the Bangalore-Mysore Infrastructure Corridor (BMIC) Project will finally take off in July next year.

The first phase, comprising the 41-km southern section of the peripheral road connecting Tumkur Road and Hosur Road, the nine-kilometre link road from Bangalore-Mysore Expressway to Mysore Road and the elevated three-kilometre expressway from link road to downtown Bangalore, will be thrown open to traffic.

Its gonna be funny for Bangaloreans outside the Indian shores trying to explain that they aren't from Bangalore anymore.

I have a friend from Bangalore and he was thinking aloud, "man, now I have to tell everyone I am from 'Bengaluru'. It just sounds weird."

lol.

What's happening

The city with megapolis dreams sets out to settle some basic infrastructure issues

Quote:
A relentless campaign by the industry and citizens over the past year has resulted in the government announcing its resolve to expedite long pending infrastructure projects.

To cope with the future growth of the cityworld class infrastructure would be developed in five years, says P.G.R. Sindhia, Minister for Finance, Infrastructure and Industry. Of the Rs 20,000 earmarked to develop infrastructure in Karnataka, Bangalore would get a large chunk.

A stilted expressway would be built at a cost of Rs 400 crore, in a public-private partnership, along the Hosur Road to ease traffic congestion in the area which houses a large number of software companies. However, commuters eagerly await moves to connect the Electronic City with the IT corridor of Bannerghatta Road and Sarjapur Road.

The upcoming Bangalore international airport at Devanahalli, about 35 km from the city, with a proposed annual handling capacity of 8 million passengers, is expected to vastly improve air services to the city. The six-lane expressway connecting to the new airport is expected to be ready by 2008.

The Devanahalli area is developing into a greater Bangalore, while plans to connect the area through a 109-km peripheral ring road are expected to provide good connectivity to key habitats in the IT corridor employing about 2.5 lakh.

Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BMP) has spent Rs 60 crore in 18 months to strengthen the road network and plans to asphalt and upgrade major roads at a cost of Rs 150 crore. These efforts would be supplemented by a Rs 140-crore, 139-km corridor project implemented by other local agencies.

The development of the busy Airport Road, which has come under severe stress as it is the only link to the existing HAL Airport, additional roads in areas like Koramangala and SJP Road, and subways and pedestrian over-bridges are expected to ease commuters' woes.

The Bangalore Water Supply & Sewerage Board has undertaken a Rs 350-crore Cauvery water project to provide drinking water to colonies located on the city's peripheries.

However, it is the prestigious Hi-Tech city project conceived by the Bangalore Development Authority that is expected to give Bangalore a new character. The Rs 491-crore project to create self-contained infrastructure such as schools, healthcare and other modern facilities is expected to set the tone for the future development of Bangalore.

However, all these promised facilities would prove inadequate until the much-delayed Rs 6,000-crore Metro Rail Project takes off. A growing city needs a fast transit system to improve its overall efficiency.
