‘Garden City’, as Bangalore is known, has seen an immense amount of change in social infrastructure due to the IT boom, there are specific areas of this city which were the most affected and majority of those changes were all positive.
Once the city rode the IT wave, along with it came a lot of jobs which meant extra amount of people and extra amount of living space and conditions to accommodate this influx of people to the city, which already had its fair share of inhabitants.
Peripheral areas in the outskirts of the main city area which could be used for development started getting looked into and soon there was construction in places which were previously left untouched and undeveloped. These areas were soon considered to be a part of the city as the connectivity and other social infrastructural changes around started to give these places the upliftment that it needed. As the city of Bangalore added to its list of realty hotspots, these areas evolved immensely in the past few years.
The north of Bangalore was the one place which underwent the most amount of transformation. Connectivity channels along this side were the most profitable as it was located nearby to the Outer Ring Road.
One of the areas that probably benefitted the most due to the proximity to the ORR was the Sarjapur belt which suddenly turned in one of the most popular corporate and residential hotpots.
Given below is the reasons as to how and why this happened and it will show that this was surely a boon for a city which would have surely gotten overcrowded if it had not come up with alternative living options.
Strong commercial presence
the fact that Sarjapur is located not too far from other developed areas like Whitefield and Koramangla means that it has good connectivity and location as well. This has caused a lot of major and reputed companies to set up their offices in Sarjapur. When the revised Master Plan came out in 2015, it made provisions for Sarjapur to be constructed beyond the initial 3-4 kilometers that it had permission for between the ORR and Sarjapur Road near the railway tracks.
this area can be sub divided into two parts. The growth in one part has been mainly because of upcoming residential projects in Bangalore like apartments and villas and the growth in the other part has been because of standalone office developments.
In demand residential area
because of its strong connectivity to the other IT hubs like Electronics City and Whitefield, many people are choosing to come and stay here as the property rates here are very competitive as compared to the developed areas of the city and the living options come with most of the modern day features that people seek. This has led to the construction of other things like schools and hospitals which are needed to maintain the upkeep of any good neighborhood.
These above reasons have seen Sarjapur being turned around in the last decade and a half from being an outer, undeveloped area of Bangalore to one of the most preferred locations in Bangalore.
