tall enuf I say.
India’s silicon city is growing taller. A planned 32-storey tower in Jalahalli, once completed, will surpass the 24-storey twin towers of Bearys Lakeside Habitat in Hebbal as the city’s tallest residential building.
The 344ft (105m)-tall structure is one of the three towers of the Aquila Heights project that will be launched April end by Tata Housing Development Co. Ltd on land earlier owned by state-owned watch and tractor maker HMT Ltd.
Designed by Singapore-based architects Ong and Ong Ltd, the Aquila Heights project is said to have retained 89% of the 6.3-acre project as open space. “The reason why we decided to go so tall is to make sure that we keep maximum ground space,” said a Tata Housing spokesperson from Mumbai. The project will be completed by 2010.
Leave the city behind without truly leaving it. Leave behind all those tiring schedules and nerve-cracking meetings. Leave behind the noise, the drama, the cacophony of every demanding workday. Escape to an oasis of pure natural beauty and lush greenery that stretches as far as the eyes can see, without going beyond reach of your urban lifestyle… escape to Aquila Heights.
TATA Housing Development Company Limited, a fully owned subsidiary of TATA Sons Limited today announced its second and most prestigious residential project in the South Indian market with the launch of Aquila Heights- Bangalore’s tallest and most luxurious residential address. Located within the HMT Township at Jalahalli and en route to the new airport at Devanhalli, Aquila Heights is a perfect blend of everything modern and yet surrounded with the goodness of nature. It is pre-certified green building under the guidance of IGBC. Green building features makes it energy efficient and optimizes the natural ventilation of air and light to the apartments thus reducing the operational cost for the tenants.
TATA Housing launched the project in a rather unconventional way thus highlighting the disposition of the project. Brotin Banerjee, Managing Director, TATA Housing Development Company Limited, unveiled a sand sculpture replica of Aquila Heights created by Sudarsan Pattnaik, master sand sculpture world champion at the Garuda Mall today. The five feet tall sand sculpture crafted beautifully by Sudarsan took four days to complete and will be on public display for next seven days. 45 tonns of sand has been used for making the sand sculpture replica of Aquila Heights
Speaking on the launch of Aquila Heights, Brotin Banerjee, said, “On studying the market in Bangalore, we found that there was a need for a differentiated product which offers a lot more to its residents than the conventional residential complex, a product that is modern and conventional and yet unique in its offering. Aquila Heights offers its residents a lifelong vacation from the crowded, noisy city life without taking them away from it.”
Aquila Heights site consists of three towers – Atria (29 storied), Polaris (32 storied and Vega (29 storied), the tallest residential towers in Bangalore. The project designed by International architects has a contemporary theme where steel and glass dominate the elevation of the buildings. The entire project has only 11% ground coverage, leaving 89% of area as open. The property has dedicated traffic zones, wherein the vehicular traffic is restricted to a section of the development leaving rest free for pedestrians.
Aquila Heights offers host of amenities and activities giving the residents more than the conventional residential complex. The development will have two swimming pools – an outdoor infinity lap pool and indoor temperature controlled pool; 3 themed gardens over a conventional garden; 2 gyms – an indoor multi gym and an out door aqua gym. The apartments at Aquila Heights are designed to be modern open apartment with open kitchen and bedroom and large windows. The modern township also has Helipad in each tower. The apartments are of larger size than a conventional 2, 2 ½, and 3 bedroom apartment.
To add more to life, Aquila Heights is the perfect destination for enjoying the all luxuries of life, modern, conventional and natural.
well if thats true then where is helipad on Imperial towers in bombay ? infact for a helipad to be on top of all buildings greater than 20 floors every building will have to have a flat top.
I have seen many design both proposed and under construction that don't have a flat top. Diamond tower o fGIFT for example.
great effort^^Sure, will update about Orion Mall. Its been some time since I last visited the site. Will take the status photos too. It is expected to be operational by second quarter of next year.
Ya, there are plans for a Mall and Hotel in Metropolis too. Additional 4 acres have been recently acquired. It would be facing the Whitefiled Road, just opposite the office towers, SUMMIT I& II. It is under the design stage, I had seen the initial designs. Hotel would be on top of Mall. Multiplex will also be there.It would be a pretty big mall, above 5 lakhs sft.
