NEW GURGAON RIDING HIGH ON INFRASTRUCTURAL ADVANCEMENTS
Catalysed by the availability of affordable homes, superior connectivity, great advancements in infrastructural developments and what all has been planned in terms of future growth prospects; New Gurgaon has off late emerged as a spirited residential and commercial hub in the National Capital Region. New Gurgaon has been immaculately planned and it’s two main clusters include Sectors 102 – 113 along the to be operational Dwarka Expressway and Sectors 76 – 95 & 95A. The region has seen keen interest from top developers such as DLF, Vatika, Ansal Housing, etc. and for that matter, even North India’s leading affordable housing developer Signature Global.
Commenting on how New Gurgaon is developing into a state of the art modern micro pocket, Avneesh Sood, Director, Eros Group says, “The two regions are emerging well into micro pockets and have been identified as budding strips for residential projects in Gurgaon, along the National Highway 8. The catchment area of these pockets extends from the sectors immediate after the Kherki Daula toll plaza and extending up to Manesar. Accessibility and good existing connectivity has also made this region more visible to the masses.”
New Gurgaon scores very high on connectivity front with direct access to NH 8, KMP Expressway and the Dwarka Expressway. With rail and air connectivity in close vicinity, it only adds more feathers to the cap and an ISBT has already been proposed close by to this micro pocket will only provide extra impetus to it’s growth quotient. Putting more weight on it, Pradeep Aggarwal, Co – Founder & Chairman, Signature Global says, “For the development of a region, infrastructure and connectivity go hand-in-hand and are of utmost significance. Without either one of them, the region can only witness growth at snail’s pace which in present time, won’t be considered suitable for development and returns. Projects like DMIC and Gurgaon Manesar Urban Complex give this region an edge over the others which is solely the reason why the workforce of Manesar and Gurgaon are eyeing the new developing sectors owing to the availability of affordably priced homes.”
In terms of other infrastructural developments, New Gurgaon has still a long way to go by the standards of what has been planned for this region. Social infrastructure is almost absent if one talks as of today but with considerably progress on physical infrastructure, social infrastructure will also catch up pace. However, from an investment point of view, New Gurgaon has all the attributes which makes it a preferred destination for better real estate returns. Explaining further on this, Rakesh Yadav, Chairman, Antriksh India Group says, “The pressure on the existing infrastructure is increasing day by day and newer areas need to be developed on priority. New Gurgaon is the outcome of one such decision but to help the cause further, these upcoming regions will have to well supported with socio – physical infrastructure enabling them to meet the standards of the millennium city. One of the key factors attracting buyers towards the area is its connectivity with Delhi on one side and Neemrana on the other via NH 8.”
There are already large township projects which have been planned in New Gurgaon and some are even delivered. The Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) has plans of developing multiple centres of excellence and is likely to provide further impetus to growth around this micro pocket. DMIC is bound to see huge investments in the form of FDI which will not only boost the overall economy of the country but also the clusters falling along it. Automobile and other subsidiary industries have already created a hub out of Manesar which is a promising sign. Commenting on how all these parameters including connectivity have acted as the backbone for the sector, Kushagr Ansal, Director, Ansal Housing concludes, “There are two ways of providing proper connectivity to a property, the first is choosing an area which is already well connected and the other would be to develop the property and then wait for the connectivity to improve. Sound infrastructure has always been substantial to meet the initial and continuous footfall in a region. In case of New Gurgaon, connectivity is in surplus but still lot of ground has to be covered in terms of social infrastructure and civic amenities because in the absence of these, you cannot have a complete property in true sense. And in the long run as infrastructure steps up in the region, realty prospects will greatly shape up.”
