My Favorite Shopping Malls in Pune

Mall Walking:



Where did you do your Diwali Shopping? Did you hangout in one of the recently opened shopping malls in Pune? Which one is your favorite? Phoenix Market City on Nagar Road, Kumar Pacific on Shankar Sheth Road or Amanora Town Centre on Hadapsar Kharadi Road?

Sorry, i can't ask you more than this! My doctor should have prescribed 'Shopping Therapy', but he only recommended 'Mall Walking'.

At the end of the session, when i complained about the treatment, my doctor said, "Ravi, you need to see a psychotherapist. Not 'shopping' - only 'mall walking' - is a sort of 'disorder'. When did you do it last time?"

"I have to ask my wife! You know, i was not well... so..for a while... i was not in position to do many things," i said.

You were well. So, for sure, you must have done it. More number of times. For longer periods. Than me. So, please, share your experiences. Tell me which is your favorite shopping mall in Pune.

Phoenix Market City, at Viman Nagar, on Nagar Road, Pune 411 028:

Certainly, i liked Phoenix Market City's (www.phoenixmarketcity.in) 420 feet frontage on Nagar Road. Though the 8 lane road doesn't have street lights and pavements on the both sides. It gave me hope that Wakad can have a mall & multiplex before the roads are ready!

I enjoyed the shape of the mall, efficient elevators - escalators and moving walkways and spaces with sitting arrangements in Phoenix Market City. Yes, and, of course, food! You know? I was tempted to try M. O. D. - Mad Over Donuts! But i didn't. Because, i fell for the shoppers!

I had a great time at Phoenix Market City. It was interesting to watch the couples with one of the partners completely turned on! For me, at site - it would have been the right time to fill the property booking form.

I loved the natural Sunlight in Kumar Pacific Mall. Because of the natural Sunlight coming from the roof, i felt that the space inside the mall is as good as the space in front of the mall. Not only that. I ignored the ugly elevator at the center of the lounge!

Like Phoenix Market City and Amanora Town Centre, multiplex in Kumar Pacific is not yet ready. But unlike other malls, almost all shops in Kumar Pacific are booked and may open in a few months.

I loved Hyper City (www.hypercityindia.com), one of the anchor brands of Kumar Pacific. In well laid out Hyper City, i didn't feel like i am in the godown of a wholesaler or in a Big Bazzar or in the Bhori-Ali in Pune!

After visiting the meat section of Hyper City, i decided to start cooking and eating fish. I haven't seen such a clean place where you can get fresh, as well as, ready to eat / cook, fish & meat.

Because, i have a soft corner for Kumar Properties and a lot of curiosity about Property Zone (www.propertyzoneindia.com) - who is leasing & managing Kumar Pacific - i walked a few more steps than my doctor has prescribed. Result is, i found one of the best rest-rooms in Pune.

Amanora Town Centre, Hadapsar Kharadi Road, Pune 411 028:



View Amanora Town Centre, Hadapsar Kharadi Road, Pune 411 028 in a larger map

I never liked the elevation of Amanora Town Centre (www.towncentreamanora.com) Mall. But, yesterday, i realized that it's the best! True, it's not contemporary. And looks completely odd - in the futuristic Amanora Park Town. But, yesterday, i felt that, the old world charm of the traditional architecture contributes in creating trust and reliably about the mall. You feel that - you are visiting a shop which is in business for years!

At this point of time, actually, out of the two shopping blocks in Amanora Town Centre, only one blok - "West Blok", Promenade - open to sky connecting street between the two bloks and Oasis - open dining and entertainment space - around the water body and music fountains - between the two bloks , are open. But, it's enough to give you an idea about the entire 2 million sq.ft. Amanora Town Centre - where almost 50,000 shopper can hang out for a complete day.

Now, while writing this blog, i realized that - though i didn't perform - i was not completely frigid! I was aroused when i visited Crossword Book Store. I was turned on when i saw L G Smart TV in Home Town. I had a coffee at Costa - and tried my best to convince that not the Net Amount Rs. 84/- but the address on the bill - Amanora, Village Sadesatranali (17 - 1/2 Nali), Hadapsar, Taluka Haveli, District Pune - 411 028 - made me LMAO!

By accusing me for not shopping, i felt that, my doctor was only creating performance anxiety in my mind. Instead of visiting the psychotherapist, my wife said, we will go for shopping. "Out of these 3 malls, which one is your favorite?," she asked. "Shopping is like making love! Agree?," i asked her. "Yes!," she said. "Then why not try all possible ways?," i said. What say you? Do you agree with me?

Ravi Karandeekar, You are a fool!

Entrance of CREDAI-PUNE METRO - PROFEST WEST 2011 - Exhibition of properties in Pune West
Entrance of CREDAI-PUNE METRO - PROFEST WEST 2011 - Exhibition of properties in Pune West

Yesterday evening, I visited PROFEST WEST 2011, property exhibition organized by CREDAI-PUNE METRO at VITS Hotel, Balewadi Stadium, at Sadanand Hotel Junction of Mumbai Bangalore Bypass & Baner Mahalunge Road in Pune.

Since, it was the last weekend before Diwali, the crowd of property buyers was not 'huge'. Looking at the 'free' real estate sales persons in the stall, i decided to talk to them and understand how Pune real estate market is doing.

After visiting a couple of stalls, i realized that all real estate salespersons were trying to tell me something. Not about Pune real estate market, but about me and my blog. Of course, these people were not as "free and frank" as some of you readers are - in your comments on my Ravi Karandeekar's Pune Real Estate Market News Blog. So, i took some time to understand what they were trying to tell me. Only when I met Mr. Anil Pharande, Chairman of Pharande Spaces, at the 'exit' of the property exhibition, i understood that they all were trying to tell me - Ravi Karandeekar, You are a fool!

"Karandeekar.....look...what i have done! You wrote who will buy in this "Aadiwasi area"....but...I sold total 1,800 flats in Celestial City and Woodsville!! Accept that you were wrong!!!," tightly griping my hand, Mr. Anil Pharande said.

I was about to say that - Sir, I didn't label Ravet & Chikhali - Moshi as an Aadiwasi area! I raised question only about the timing of launch, size of the property, property rate, charging terrace 100 per cent and 30 per cent loading - but i couldn't; because, someone stopped to congratulate Mr. Pharande for organizing such a grand event.

Introducing me to him, who was a builder in PCMC, Mr. Pharande praised my blog and added that, "Only problem is, like all Punekars, Ravi also didn't know the potential of PCMC. When we launched Celestial City, I called him and gave him tuition!"

"Yes, Sir! You opened my eyes. You didn't teach me a lesson. But, gave me a tuition!," I said.

"I have created new markets. Nobody knew Ravet - Moshi - Chikhali before i launched Celestial City and Woodsville. Now, every week new projects are launched there. And all are affordable for a common-man. Aren't they?," Mr. Pharande said.

"Yes, Sir! Thanks for your teachings - without you - the world would not have understood the potential of PCMC!!," I said.

"In the days of world financial crises, we not only gave an affordable home to a common man - but good appreciation for his property too!," Mr. Pharande said.

"Yes, Sir! From 2,400 in 2009 to Rs. 3,400 per sq.ft. in 2011 - 1,000 Rupees appreciation in 2 years is awesome!," I said.

I was about to say, "Sir, you have done lot of good things for the builders too! Now, your way of affordable pricing has become a standard property pricing policy of Pune real estate market!" but Mr. Pharande gave me the parting message, "Be positive - blog the facts - provide useful information about Pune real estate market - than criticizing - Goodbye"

"Yes, Sir! I got you!!," I said and somehow managed to free my hand from his powerful clutch.

As i came out of the exhibition, i realized that I had made a big mistake. I didn't take the 'positive step'. I didn't give my best wishes to Mr. Pharande for his upcoming township in Punawale!

"Ravi Karandeekar, what did you learn today?," I asked myself. When i started preparing a random list of things i have learned in PROFEST WEST 2011, i realized that all conversations i had with my friends had some positive messages for me.

1) Being enthusiastic about upcoming projects in Pune real estate market and writing about their 'lucrative' pre-launch offers is positive blogging;


Raising questions about sanctions and approvals is negative. There isn't anything 'unethical' about launching projects without all sanctions and approvals.

Because, even if the sanctions take time and the projects don't start for a few months, ultimately, those who have booked at the pre-launch & launch offer are in profit - because they get appreciation!

The salesperson in Mont Vert Luxury Homes was trying to tell me this when he talked about the 'huge appreciation' of Mont Vert Belair at Bhugaon.

In July 2010, in the pre-launch offer, the property rate was only Rs. 2599 per sq.ft.. And today, in October 2011, the current rate of Mont Vert Belair Bhugaon is Rs. 3,799 per sq.ft.! Now, all inclusive property price of a 2 BHK Flat in Mont Vert Belair is in the range of Rs. 48.55 to 51.64 Lakhs and a 3 BHK Flat fits in the budget of Rs. 60.30 to 61.19 Lakhs.

What huge appreciation - Rs. 1,200 per sq.ft. - in such a small period of time - only 15 months! Everyone who booked in Mont Vert Belair is very happy!

Oh! God!! It was rude to say - "What is your business? Making people rich? Otherwise, you would not have launched Belair in July 2010!"

2) A 2 BHK Flat for Rs. 45 to 48 Lakhs, near Hinjewadi - at Baner- Balewadi, Wakad, & Pimple Saudagar - not a builder's offer but a property buyer's demand!


Yash Promoters & Builders' stall was at the entrance of PROFEST WEST 2011. They have launched a new project Yash Wisteria, only 2 BHK Flats near Om Developers' Island in Wakad. Carpet area of a 2 BHK Flat was around 646 or 636 sq.ft. But the terraces were quite huge - from 220 sq.ft. to 315 sq.ft.

All inclusive property price of these 2 BHK Flats in Yash Wisteria Wakad was in the range of Rs. 47.4 to 48.5 Lakhs.

"If the terraces had been little smaller - your 2 BHK Flat would have cost around 40 lakhs! Isn't it?," i asked the salesperson.

"Yes! But, then who would have bought it? Someone who's requirement is 2 BHK has a budget of 45 - 48 lakhs! Why would have he purchased a smaller flat when he can buy a big one?," the salesperson said.

"Is it so? People like to buy a 2 BHK Flat for 45 - 48 Lakhs?," i asked.

"Yes! Go and visit other stalls. Then you will understand why we are offering big terraces - max value in your budget!," the salesperson said.

As per his advice, i visited a few stalls and asked for the all inclusive property price of a 2 BHK Flat. You know what? Every builder was selling 2 BHK Flat for around Rs. 50 Lakhs.
1) Costa Rica Wakad Rs. 47.67 to 51.10 Lakhs (up to 5th floor)
2) B U Bhandari Landmarks' Alacrity Baner Rs. 52.63 & 54.07 Total Package
3) Paranjape Schemes' Vasant Vihar Towers Rs. 56.13 & 58.15 Lakhs
4) Paranjape Schemes' Yuthika Baner Rs. 57.8 to 67.6 Lakhs

When the salesperson at Midori Towers Pimple Nilakh told me that the all inclusive property prices of his ready possession 2 BHK Flat is Rs. 66 Lakhs, i asked him, "Why 66? A 2 BHK Flat always costs around Rs. 48 - 50 lakhs!"

At one stall, i asked my friend, "How come all 2 BHK Flats cost around Rs. 50 Lakhs? Isn't it too much price for a 2 BHK?"

"Sit down for a moment and i will show you why we sell a 2 BHK Flat for Rs. 50 Lakhs!," my friend said.

I pulled the chair and started gossiping. In no time, a visitor came to us and asked about the availability in my friend's project.

Looking at me, instead of asking a standard question - What is your requirement? 2 BHK or 3 BHK? - my friend asked, "What is your budget?"

"Around 45 - i can stretch it up to 48 for a 2 BHK Flat," the visitor said.

Looking at me, my friend said, "Good! I have a few flats in your budget - but if you stretch a little - only 1 or 2 Lakhs more - you can get a choice!,"

"Yes! Certainly!! I want a choice!!! Tell me what you have..," the visitor said.

My friend told his junior to look after 'the inquiry' and said, "How was the demo? Now, you know that - a 2 BHK Flat for Rs. 50 lakhs - has become a standard property price near Hinjewadi!"

"Ravi, in Pune real estate market after every 2 - 3 years "fresh blood" becomes a prospective buyer. Today's property buyer is Rs. 70 per litre buyer - he will be unhappy only if petrol price become 72 and would be happy if it comes down to 68 rupees per litre - he is not like you and me who used to buy a petrol at 25 rupees per litre! You know? In the beginning, i used to feel shy to quote 45 for a 2 BHK. But, not now? Now, i fear to quote less than 45 - because the buyer may think that my property is not that good!," my friend said.

"Come on, how many can afford 50 lakh 2 BHK Flat?," i said.

"Certainly, a few! But, a lot more than the flats all builders can construct near Hinjewadi! You know? Now, my boss is happy even if i book 5 - 6 flats in a month. Because, 5 - 6 flats at today's rate are - as good as - selling 10 - 12 flats at the launch rate. Point is - builder & buyer - all are happy! Only those who don't have "purchasing power" are complaining and blaming!!," my friend said.

My friend was trying to tell me that even the property prices are exorbitant & the sale is low, possibility of a "crash" or property prices coming down is zero!

3) A property buyer who complaints about a builder, mostly, has an "ego problem"!:


While we were talking, one of my old friends had joined us. Since, on my blog there were many comments on his project, i thought that it would be better to talk with him in private. So, i said, "Let us go & sit in your stall"

"instead of that, let us go and have a cup of coffee!," my friend said.

"Coffee? When did you start drinking coffee?," i asked.

"My boss has told me to 'keep Ravi Karandeekar away from my site'. So, my stall is not a good place for us to talk," my friend said.

"Why?," i asked.

"Ego problem!," my friend said.

"But, I haven't written about your project in so many months!," i said.

"You haven't but our buyers keep on writing comments on your blog," my friend said.

"Good! Solve the complaints. Your property buyers will start writing good about you!," i said.

"I would have done that but my boss sincerely believes that most customer complaints are 'ego problem' of the property buyers and the rest are misunderstanding and unrealistic expectations from the builder!," my friend said.

"So, what is the solution?," i asked.

"Ignore! Attending means pampering ego. Attending means wasting time to teach a person who is not ready to learn! Waste of time and energy!! My boss believes!!!," my friend said.

"Doesn't bad reputation affect your booking?," i asked.

"Double spread full page color ads in TOI are not that expensive - my boss says!," my friend said. I was about to say something but couldn't because Mr. Anil Pharande caught hold of me.

Anandgram Yavat Celebrates "Possession"!

Who is more happy - The Builder or The Home Buyers?


Sachin Kulkarni, M D, Vastushodh Projects, speaking at the "Possession Ceremony of Anandgram Yavat"
Sachin Kulkarni, M D, Vastushodh Projects, speaking at the "Possession Ceremony of Anandgram Yavat"



View Vastushodh Projects' Anandgram Yavat (www.anandgram.co.in), 10 acre township of 1 Room Kitchen Flats for Rs. 3.4 - 4.5 lakhs, 1 BHK Flats for Rs. 4.7 to 6 lakhs and 2 BHK Flats for Rs. 6.3 - 8.4 lakhs, on Pune Solapur Highway in a larger map

On Wednesday, 19th October 2011, I attended "Anandasohala", Celebration of Possession of Anandgram Yavat (www.anandgram.co.in). Assuming that she would enjoy the entertainment part of the celebration, i invited my sister too. "You will have a great time! Best chairs in the auditorium are reserved for us!! The builder of Anandgram, you know, is my dear friend!," I promised her.

However, even before the celebrations began, i realized that inviting my sister was a big mistake. Instead of enjoying the satisfaction of realization of a dream, which i had shared with Sachin Kulkarni, my dear friend and M. D. of Vastushodh Projects (www.vastushodh.co.in) - developers of Anandgram Yavat, i was paying attention to my sister. Answering her questions and making sure that she was not 'bored'.

For example, when Sachin and Nitin Kulkarni felicitated Mr. Umesh Babar, the chief engineer of Anandgram Yavat, my sister asked me, "Both of them look so young! How old are these brothers?" "Yes, they are in their thirties and are happily married," pointing at Mrs. Sachin & Mrs. Nitin Kulkarni, i said.

When their parents handed over the keys of the flats to the homeowners of Anandgram, my sister asked, "Do they have only 2 sons or is there a third one too?" "Only 2! And Nitin has a school going son," I said in a sad tone.

At the end of the audio visual presentation of Anandgram Yavat, a big and long round of applause in the auditorium made me completely sentimental. Holding my hand, my sister asked, "Ravi, at this point of time, in this auditorium, who is more happy? The builder or the home buyer?"

"Both! Because, both were sharing the same dream - dream of a home in Rs. 4 to 10 lakhs!," I said.

"I would like to see the financials and business model of Anandgram. I was always curious to know why IL&FC, a leading private investment company, decided to invest in Anandgram," my sister, who is a finance manager of a big IT company, said and added that she wouldn't mind being with me till the end of "Marathi Bana", the entertainment part of the celebration of possession of Anandgram Yavat.

5) 3 BHK Type 2 - Rs. 59,89,447

Rs. 2800 per sq.ft.! Basic Property Rate at Kalpataru Serenity at Manjri, Pune 412 307!!:


When my friend Dinesh Joshi, G M of Kalpataru Limited (www.kalpataru.com), called me to invite for the "soft" launch of 16 Acre Kalpataru Serenity at Manjri, my neighbor, who claims to be my wife, was with me. She heard me speaking only 2 sentences -
1) "What is on offer?" and
2) "Yes, of course, i know the location of Kalpataru Serenity...Dinesh, you know? - you are actually 'relaunching' it...I will be there...Thanks for inviting!"

As soon as i finished the call, she said,"Ravi, you should have asked him to send a car. You can only walk from your bed to toilet. How can you travel by public transport?"

"Yes! You are right. I should have. But, you know what? For Kalpataru Serenity's offer - i don't mind walking from Kothrud to Manjri!," I said and told her the above offer.

"Pune Real Estate Investors, Please, Don't Invest in Kalpataru Serenity at Manjri!"


On Google Talk, one of my subscriber asked my take on - investing in a 1 BHK Flat in Kalpataru Serenity at Manjri.

Please, don't invest! - i replied.

Why? - my subscriber real estate investor asked.

After a long time, a good builder is offering a good home at a good price for the genuine home buyers in Pune, please, let them own a home. Don't grab it from their mouth! - i replied.

What about my rights? I have a right to increase my wealth - create an asset to secure the future of my family! - my subscriber real estate investor asked.

How much money you have? All 20 Lakhs? or borrowing to invest? - i asked.

7 - 8 Lakhs of my own. Rest home loan - my subscriber real estate investor said.

Reinvest in your own home - make it better - manage in your own funds - increase resale value of your house - it will give you better returns than investing in a 1 BHK - I typed and sent him a link of the recently published article in The Times of India.

Why Kalpataru can offer what other Pune builders can't?

I managed to walk up to the bus stop. Could get in Kothrud Depot to Hadapsar bus. Got a window sit. Took a nap. Got down at Hadapsar Gadital. Crossed the road for the bus to Manjri. Got down at Navratna Mangal Karyalay, exactly opposite Kalpataru Serenity. To celebrate, took a snap of the main entrance gate.

I liked the sample flat & floor plans of Kalpataru Serenity at Manjri. 1 BHK Flat with a dry balcony, separate W C & Bath and 14 feet x 10 feet living with a terrace on alternate floors in a 12 story building - designed as per the latest development rules - with 2 lifts & 2 staircases - in Kalpataru Serenity is an ideal home.

A 2 BHK Flat Type 1, from 1st to 4th floors, for the all inclusive property price of Rs. 32 lakhs is value for money. The saleable area of this 3 side open flat is 920 sq.ft. The compact 2 BHK Flat has a proper dining area, dry balcony, spacious common toilet, and a niche for a wardrobe in both bedrooms.

Those who subscribe to "No Waste of Space" - means - "No Passages" - a popular sales gimmick in Pune real estate market - must see this plan to understand how passages provide privacy in a flat. Which is particularly essential in a small 2 BHK home.

The saleable area of a 3 side open 2 BHK Flat Type 2 is 1149 sq.ft. It is worth paying Rs. 39.5 lakhs for this 2 BHK Flat which has 18 feet x 10 feet 6 inches living, 12 feet x 7 feet 6 inches kitchen, 14 feet x 10 feet 6 inches master bedroom & 12 feet x 10 feet children's bedroom.

Finalizing a 3 BHK Flat could become a tough job for you! No doubt, you will be happy to see that you can own a 3 BHK Flat Type 1 in Rs. 56 lakhs. But, when your spouse will see the room sizes of both bedrooms in Rs. 60 Lakh 3 BHK Type 2 - 11 feet x 15 feet - you are going to find it tough to convince your spouse - in front of the salesperson - that pleasure has no relation with size.

Though this was only a soft launch for the invitees, Mr. Lalit Makhijani, Associate Vice President - Sales and Col. Shamsher Dutt, G M - Sales, Kalpataru Limited, were at the site!

Considering the strengths of Kalpataru - quality of the people, quality of the construction, current cost of the plot of land, stringent construction systems and a big team of skilled and experienced sub-contractors, - how can Kalpataru Limited constructs homes in this price bracket? i was curious to know.

"You know what? When a typical Pune builder becomes 'big' - he wants to build high price properties - even in a fringe village! Otherwise, what is the benefit of becoming a big builder? Now, Kalpataru Pune has mastered the skill of advertising in the mainstream news papers too. So, why did you not copy the typical Pune builders and launch high budget properties - fashion condos?," i asked the senior executives of Kalpataru.

"Answer is, Ravi, please, come down to our head office at Mumbai. You will not believe that you are in a builder's office. You will feel like you are visiting a corporate office of a medium size company. Then you will understand why Kalpataru don't do business like a typical builder!," Mr. Lalit said.

PROFEST EAST & WEST 2011 - Pune Property Exhibitions

Group Interest Free Fund Raising Events:


Realizing that festival season is the best time to collect interest free funds from Pune property buyers, CREDAI-PUNE METRO (www.credaipune.org), one of the many Builders' organisations in Pune, has organized two events.

1) PROFEST EAST 2011 on October 14, 15, & 16 at Hotel Hayaat Regency, Nagar Road and

2) PROFEST WEST 2011 on October 21, 22, & 23 at VITS Hotel at Balewadi, at the junction of Mumbai Bangalore Bypass & Baner Mahalunge Road.

A group of Pune builders who have projects in East Pune, will take part in PROFEST EAST 2011 and those builders who have projects in West Pune will group together at PROFEST WEST 2011.

You should visit these events, if you are one of those property buyers who believe that:

1) You are born to offer interest free funds to a builder to survive and prosper in 'high risk - high profit' construction business

2) You live and work not for your family but to pay pre-EMI - at ever increasing home loan interest rates - to Housing Finance Companies and Banks.

3) You are living in Mumbai and want to dedicate a few years of your working life to provide cheap rental housing for young and smart Punekars, who know well that renting is better than buying, you should visit PROFEST EAST / WEST 2011 offer your hard earned money to a builder. Back home, please, inform your family that - you believe in living for others - so you have invested in a 1 BHK Flat in Pune!

Tips for Pune Real Estate Investors:


When you visit PROFEST EAST / WEST 2011, please, carry your cheque book with you. While giving check do not ask about the cancellation charges, whether the project has received all sanctions and approvals, APF number of the bank, expected delay in possession, compensation for delayed possession, third party quality assurance certificate for the construction, copy of the agreement, or even the name of the builder. Just hand over your check to the guy at the counter and go home.

Feel free to call CREDAI-PUNE METRO PROFEST EAST / WEST Helpline 98221 83359

Here are the location maps where builders are waiting to receive your interest free funds:

Now, please, don't ask me "Why?".

I said "Yes", because - i knew that you wanted to hear 'Yes'.

I knew that you wont take "No" for an answer! Because, as per popular belief in Pune real estate market, 15 Lakh Rupees 1 BHK & 20 Lakh Rupees 2 BHK Flats are 'investment properties'. Right?

Since, on Saturday afternoon, i visited the public ceremony of booking flats at Aura City Shikrapur, and have seen how much satisfaction Pune property buyers get by participating in real estate investors' mass orgy, how can i say that it's not worth investing in Aura City?

Now, though the weekend launch ceremony of Aura City Shikrapur is over,
though the today's property rates are much higher than the launch rates
- Rs. 1950 per sq.ft. for Garden Facing & Rs. 1850 for Non- Garden Facing Flats,
I know for sure, if you visit the site today
- you will be tempted to book a 1 BHK or a 2 BHK Flat in Aura City!

When you will be travelling on Nagar Road, hoardings of Aura City Shikrapur will keep on tempting you all the time to invest in upcoming residential township in industrial hub of Ranjangaon - Sananswadi.

Convenient location from busy Pune Nagar Road, good approach road and compound wall with impressive main gate will give you the assurance of investing in a well planned 16 acre gated community of 1,000 flats.

Impressive site office will give you a feeling of investing in a project developed by well established builders in Pune - Maple Group & Jalan Group.
