  • Distance between towers in KBA

    Can someone pls let me know on what would be the distance between adjacent towers in Kensington Boulevard (distance between KBA 9, KBA 10, KBA 11 or distance between kba 12, kba 14 or distance between kba16, kba 17).
    I have circled these towers in the image.

    I remember talking to some technical persons long back and he had mentioned this would be around 50-60 feet.But from the construction updates and google maps it looks much lesser.

    Attached layout plan for quick reference.

  • I'm given to understand that club/ social facilities would be common between KBA and KP2, so, based on the proximity to KBA tower types, facilities, parks, etc, I was trying to assess the impact KBA would have on different blocks in KP2..

    .. Interestingly, I couldn't locate any pictures of what the KB Apartments are to look like! Brochures include details and pictures of gardens and open spaces, but no artistic impression of the towers..

    Would request someone to share some information on this.. From what I can tell, KBA mostly has towers in the shapes of (a) 'X', (c) 'H' and (c) swastikas. Broadly, I suppose, most buildings of the same shape would look similar..

    Thanks!

    End users have been unhappy only because of the delivery issue, AFAIK. The construction pace has picked up quite a lot lately and should not be an issue anymore.

    Any other points because of which you think/have noticed end users are unhappy? Please highlight.

    Hi Divya,

    Please refer to the map for the answer to make sense.

    I had gone to the site earlier today. My observation says that the distance between Towers 9,10 and 11 is almost zero. At the best it could be 5 feet. The same is true for Towers 2-3, Towers 5-6 and Towers 16-17.

    Tower 4 is separated from 2-3 and 5-6 on either side by approx. 15 feet. The distance between Tower 5-6 and Tower 7 is again 15 feet.

    The maximum distance between towers is 35-40 feet i.e. between Towers 19-21 and Towers 20-22. They look very well planned and give a sense of true openness. I reckon they are 4 BHKs with a Central Promenade between them.

    I hope it helps.

    Absolutely, the construction has really picked up in the last few months. I hope it continues in the future as well. Most of the towers are at least 6 floors or above which isn't too bad. At the beginning of the year 2013, most of them were at basement levels - a few even at piling stage.

    I reckon the pace is roughly a floor per month which is the best we could expect from Jaypee, going by their performance so far in KBA or other projects in Jaypee Greens. A few months back, I was told by one of the site-supervisors that they would be constructing two floors per month - that is definitely a stretch.

    I am happy with the current pace though and a decent number of labour could be seen across towers suggesting the intent of the builder/contractor. Six months ago, there would only be 50 people working across 20 or so towers.

  • Thanks Capslock for the reply. In fact after posting in the forum i also did my own research to find answers to my queries.

    I was also able to find this(attached) birds eye view of KBA, I guess someone in the recent posts was looking for it.

    The location of clubs(or will they be shared with KPA etc as someone posted), other amenities is still not clear to me. Anyone having any idea on this pls share.

    So you mean to say from your visit that the whole KBA layout looks well planned with good feel of openness? Unfortunately I dont have the luxury of visiting the site.

  • Pics have been updated on Jaypee website for various projects including KBA. Here, most of the towers have reached 8th Floor. The progress is cool one floor per month since last 3-4 months. Nothing exceptional but not too bad either.

    Interestingly, the IREF thread of another project of Jaypee (in the same peer group i.e. non GC) Garden Isle is quite active and people are talking about price hike every couple weeks. The status on the ground is pathetic to say the least. Even after two years (could be more) of launch, the construction has not yet begun. It seems the piling work is still in progress.

    I have never seen any one on the thread getting agitated about the (lack of) construction in their project. Good luck to them!!

    Delay in JP projects is a given....everyone knows and talk about it....refer Orchards, Kosmos,Aman thread which are among the most active JP threads.

    I have heard the most staunchest of JP supporters on this forum accept that JP delay is not acceptable and a very big issue.

  • How much delay is acceptable?

    If the construction begins tomorrow, the structure would take 42 months one floor per month (some of the towers are G+38), another 24 months for internal works and we could easily set aside 6 months for being a Jaypee project. It adds up to another 5-6 years from now.

    It looks like Modi would complete his first tenure as the PM before someone gets the possession of Garden Isle :-)

    Indeed. GI would take a lot of time to deliver. However, one hope could be that they push for 2 floors a month and simultaneously work on brickwork extra to deliver sooner. With jaypee this maybe asking for a lot. But with lots of projects nearing completion we never know. Jaypee may expedite the process for GI. Though difficult to say. The one thing that's certain is that the project would be delayed a lot. How much can that be reduced by only time will tell.

    BSP of 4600 appx for good units. As per me its a good buy. Go through the earlier part of the thread you will find some fair evaluation of the project.

    The best way to find out the price is to visit websites like 100-1 acres dot com. Before you make your decision in favour of KBA, please keep in mind that its delivery is at least 3 years away and even in CLP, approx. 60% payment has gone. Those who bought it under PDP (partial down-payment) plan have already paid 95% of the total consideration.

    It is a relatively low-density project offering a feeling of open-ness unlike the concrete jungles available at similar prices on Noida E-way. The floor plans for some of the towers (swastika shaped) are also brilliant.

    All the best for your search.
