Project Review: VTP Hilife

0

As the upwardly mobile middle class begin to aspire for more so is their need for housing or any reliable accommodation. However, it has been found that the customers pay more for what they get in return – be it living area , amenities or location. It is believed that the new-gated community is about to change this very belief and paradigm.

A premium residential launch by VTP Realty and Rairah Corporation at Dange Chowk in Wakad, Pune is already gaining attention. The project called HiLife will uphold their three tiered philosophy- Better Design, Better Build and Better Care. The project will offer spacious homes with higher carpet area than many in the vicinity and flexibility in the design of interior spaces. It will also feature luxurious amenities which are rarely found in a community of this range of budget as well as in the location.

VTP Realty is acknowledged as a reliable upcoming developer in Pune having delivered close to 1 million sqft of real-estate spaces in Pune, including residential, commercial, retail and hospitality developments.

Location and Social Infrastructure

A premier location adds to appeal of any good & revered residential development. This is where HiLife at Dange Chowk, Wakad stands out from its competition as it offers convenience of transport rest of the city & Mumbai, yet it’s away from the extremely busy nodes of Pune.

The project is strategically located at Dange Chowk in Wakad. The BRT Bus Stand is extremely close to the site. Other transport nodes such as Pune Airport (22.5 Km), Pune Railway Station (17 Km), Chinchwad Station (5 Km) and Shivaji Nagar Bus Stand (14 Km) are also situated at an accessible distance from the site.

The unique location of the project situates it 2 mins away from the Mumbai-Pune highway. However, despite this proximity, the project is away from the main highway and thus ensures residents enjoy good connectivity without the noise and pollution. The location is also just a 5-minute drive away from popular localities of west Pune such as Baner and Aundh which are favourites among non-Puneites as well for their social life.

It is also located close to the Hinjewadi and Talawade IT parks which are employment hubs to a major population of IT professionals. Civic amenities such as water and waste disposal in Wakad are better developed and managed than Hinjewadi. The location also offers proximity to hill stations such as Lonavala and others, which are popular weekend getaways.

Well-developed infrastructure- which includes schools, hospitals, entertainment centres and restaurants- is an important aspect of choosing an ideal location. Schools and colleges such as Wisdom World School (3Km), Euro School (3Km), Akshara International School (3Km), Blossom Public School (3Km), Indira College (2.5 Km), DY Patil College (3 Km) and Balaji Institute (2Km) are present near the site. Hospitals such as Aditya Birla Hospital (2Km) and Life Point Multispeciality Hospital (3Km) are located in the vicinity. Popular entertainment and shopping centres located nearby are D-Mart (Thergaon 3 Km), Reliance Fresh (4Km), Big Bazaar (4.5Km), Westend Mall (9Km), Xion Mall (4.5 Km), PVR Chinchwad (6Km) and Pimpri Central (6Km).

 

About the Project

The residences will come up over 4.75 acres of land parcel and will have 6 towers. The site layout has been done such that all towers surround the central recreational zone. The high-rise towers will be 20 storeyed high along with a two level parking- the tallest in the vicinity. Phase 1 will see the development of 3 towers- T1, T2 and T3. The remaining towers will be developed in the later phases. The number of apartments on each floor is as follows: T1- 6, T2 – 6, T3 – 8. The lift core of these buildings will comprise of 3 lifts.

The developer provides ‘Better Design’ even at their tower level planning by incorporating unique design attributes. The layout of the towers will be done in the form of a Y-shaped hexagon. This will essentially be a tri-axial Y-shaped plan wherein three separate wings will be connected to a central core. The advantage of this design will first and foremost be privacy- as all the viewing angles will be outwards without overlooking the neighboring unit. There will also be optimum inflow of natural light and ventilation. The entrance lobbies to the towers will be double heighted with a covered drop-off area and a waiting lounge.

 

Design Features 

‘Better Design’ at apartment level planning includes many elements. Firstly, apartments will be provided with corner L-shaped bay windows. Apart from facilitating a panoramic view, these windows also have functional aspects such as seating area and storage below the seating. There is also a good inflow of light and air through these windows. There will also be flexibility to design the internal spaces as per the user’s needs; enabled by minimum internal walls and passages.

Amenities

There will be a plethora of luxurious amenities and recreational areas for all age groups at HiLife. In terms of ‘Better Design’ at site level planning, a central podium will be vehicle free and will act as a green connecting space to the open spaces on the north and south side. This landscaped area will give the residents an experience of living without boundaries.

Sports enthusiasts can avail amenities such as golf putting, badminton court, lawn tennis, net cricket pitch, guitar shaped swimming pool, half basketball court, kho-kho pitch and skating rink.

An approximate area of 7000 sqft for children’s and toddler’s play area has been planned separately for children’s safety, along with seating area for the parents. There will also be an outdoor study area, which can be an interesting space to take a break from our usual indoor study desks. Additional play areas for kids such as sand pits will add value to their outdoor activities.

The clubhouse will be planned with space for indoor games and gymnasium beside the infinity pool with a view of the outdoor guitar shaped pool and landscape area. The infinity pool will be with a separate kids pool and dedicated sit outs for parents. A “Guitar” shaped pool is considered functional as well as one with strong aesthetic appeal, which may attract many more users from within the residential complex.

Fitness related amenities are not less either which include a jogging track and cycling track. Outdoor areas for dance and meditation will be earmarked for the residents too. A yoga lawn will complete the set of fitness spaces at the project.

Senior citizens will have a dedicated pavilion to rest and have social gatherings, which will be away from the disturbance of other activities.

Apart from these, there will be additional spaces for recreation and leisure such as chit chat plaza, chess board, barbeque counter, water bodies with cascade and fountains, outdoor seating area and ribbon sit-out.

The project will also have the facility of rain-water harvesting, which is always a plus in any residential society.

Conclusion

HiLife is a promising project in all aspects. Apart from the ‘Better Design’ features explained above, it promises ‘Better Build’ through the use of Mivan technology for construction and premium interior specifications. They also promise ‘Better Care’ by providing these homes at competitive prices and pocket-friendly payment slabs, a trusted feedback mechanism and no transfer fee.
