    This has nothing to do with township or non-township, it all depends upon the liking & the dedication of the people in the society. By giving such eg. you are trying to paint a picture as if townships only have good maintenance while societies are hopeless. Sorry, but I don't buy this logic. Infact, in townships there are much more restrictions like even in holi you can't properly play around. Eg. Magarpatta.


    Personally I didn't like township concept and hence I ignored BR, MP, LR in my recent property search. But looking at new generation and future life, I see professionally managed residences will be preferred. What is happening in US today is accepted here as well. It is just matter of time

    Anyways, what's your problem with more developed localities like Aundh ? If its developed, you still have problem ?
    Btw, why are you dodging my simple question of what infra development Hinjewadi has seen in past 7 years ?? Appreciate if you can answer this.


    Sir u dont read posts then start complaining. I am not a investor in Paranjape projects but having stayed in pune for many decades can say with a little confidence that their schemes are better than the ones you find in PS and Wakad. Rohan Builders is another good builder.

    I prefer Baner over Aundh.

    Dont invest in Indian RE. Have already made that clear in many posts. Better to invest in US RE if one has to invest in RE. I personally favor US stocks. Now what is it that is confusing you?

    Regarding infra development in Hinjewadi over the last 7 yrs here is a list

    1. Shopping malls - D-mart
    2. Banks - Many lost count
    3. Hotels - Too many plus wakad is very close and so is the highway
    4. Schools -
    5. Restaurants - again too many
    6. Multiplex - under construction
    7. Proximity to work is amazing
    8. Daily essentials are all available

    What else do you want? Amazing avenues and cafes along with rows of designer shops?

    Roads? Drainage? Sewage? Street lights? Security? water? electricity? foot paths?
    hospital? Do you imagine the closest good hospital where you would consider going is aditya birla and its 5-6 kms away. Think of going there in an emergency between 6-9pm. I'm sure BR residents would not consider Mhatoba hospital at hinjewadi chowk or similar ones.

    lets talk about all this before we even talk about malls, multiplexes and restaurants. We dont go to these places on a daily basis right?

    Anyway, I think BR is a good concept, but is like a lotus in a pond full of garbage. It will be many more years till it is a self sufficient township. Till then, it is nothing special, but when it does get self sufficient, you guys can have the last laugh

    Hospital is a good pint but road, sewage, drainage, street light, security, water,electricity and foot path are already there. Actually cause there are townships and massive IT companies these things are covered

    this isnt the only lotus (is it a coincidence or shall we involve election commission here :) ) in that area. By the time it becomes self sufficient the prices will be out of the reach of AAM admi. Invest in lotus now, dont be a AAM admi :)

    Distance from a food hospital is true about Wakad and PS too...using the logic all of us should shift to Chinchawad ...at least hospital will be very close ...so what if it means travelling much more to office every day

    You are wrong there, Wakad, Pimple Saudagar may not have big hospitals like Aditya Birla, but there are still OK ones like Apple, Healing Touch etc. Plus there is abundance of good doctors. But point is, it is easier and manageable to get to Aditya Birla from Wakad even during peak hours. In an emergency, that's the only thing you care about.

  • The nearest good hospital for Blue Ridge is LIfepoint Wakad

    LifePoint Multispeciality Hospital

    There is also a new hospital coming up near the RG bridge on Hinjewadi side, called Surya Hospital. Might take a year or so.

    But I understand that it is a legitimate concern that there is no good hospital nearby. This has been raised with the BR management. So far, since residents started living at BR, there hasn't been any such incident where someone missed out on having a hospital nearby. Blue Ridge offers 24x7 ambulance service & you can get to LifePoint Hospital at Wakad in 15-20 minutes during peak times. If it is serious emergency, then you may have to rely on Sanjeevani hospital, which is 5 minutes from BR. And if things can wait, then Aditya Birla is always there.

    BR also has an in-house medical facility with visiting doctors and nurses in tower 1. Under the township act, there is increasing pressure on BR to improve medical facilities. So I'm sure that BR has that on its plan. The exact location of a medical facility hasn't been chalked out but from the layout, it will be somewhere near the school.

    God forbid that nothing happens but just for sake of argument, if emergency can strike between 6-9, it can always strike when you are not near a hospital. So you could be living right across the street from Aditya Birla but it is possible that you will need medical help when you are enroute to work. After all, possibility is that you are out of home for long time. If you live in Wakad & work in HJW, then you are spending more time out of your home anyways, so having a hospital close to house may not gain you much either.

    >> Till then, it is nothing special, but when it does get self sufficient, you guys can have the last laugh

    And the price you pay today is what the price should be when it becomes special.

    Let us be realistic. Yes I agree that hinjewadi has more restaurants than wakad. But most restaurants in hinjewadi are either daily mess types, or "garden restaurants" run by local taporis, with their scorpios parked outside.

    hello herohiralal bhai,

    kahaan hai..

    roads - bad. And narrow.
    sewage - overflowing on the roads
    drainage - what do you expect from a gram panchayat
    street light - at some stretches only (try going towards phase 3 after infy circle). And some street lights on the middle of the road in hinjewadi :D ..
    what i do not understand is how much time or bureaucracy it takes to move street light pillars from the middle of the road to the side ?
    security - enough news has been posted.
    water - my office gets those big plastic cans that go inverted into coolers. but no water problems though. MIDC work, not gram panchayat
    electricity - not sure, most offices have backup invertors and generators. Thanks to MIDC again, not the gram panchayat.
    foot path - mostly encroached, or footpath is at places like wipro circle ph2 to infy circle ph2 with nothing worth walking to in between.

    >> Invest in lotus now, dont be a AAM admi :)

    I find it strange really that places closer to work place (however lower in the livability scale) are costlier than places with good infrastructure. HJW will soon cross Baner in prices (non township prices, assuming townships have a premium). Just because of proximity to workplace, and no other reason. Pathetic really.. says a lot about the infrastructure of Pune.
    And before anyone replies saying proximity to workplace must have a premium, I must add - prices of Kandivli E was higher than Malad, even though malad was closer to Andheri (workplace of many IT folks in Mumbai), just because Kandivli E had better infra than malad E (malad E and Jogeshwari E was almost a slum).
    Proximity to workplace has less bearing on prices in cities like Amdavad or Delhi (Dwarka is costlier than Noida I believe). Proximity to workplace has almost no impact in places like Europe (superb public transport) or US (superb road infrastructure) .

    really ??? amazing new theory...not sure why your Europe is so different from what I have seen...in spite of a good public transport ( which makes it extremely easy for people to travel large distances...RE around workplaces demand premiums...

    Well yes, they do.. but the impact isnt so much as here in Pune (or India). My "amazing new theory" is wrong, agreed.

    Now, let me put it another way.
    Here, even five miles difference in proximity to workplace makes a huge difference. Not so much there. My ex-boss used to down 25 miles everyday to Mountain View in California. My friend (settled there) lives in Maryland and drives down to Washington DC everyday.
    If they move 5 miles further away or closer, the RE cost would not be so drastic, as in India.

    Here in India, it matters a lot.

    My point was that - proximity to workplace would not have been a big factor in pricing if this place had a better infrastructure.
    Places like BR or MP ask a premium just because of their proximity, not because hjw is like baner or something. hjw seems to have surpassed wakad already.
    (comparing with baner since hjw is approaching baner prices fast. not comparing with kp. hope it is apples to apples thing as closely as possible).

  • Hi..

    What would be the right price for a 3 BHK ready possession, higher floor flat in Blue Ridge?

    I have been quoted 1.15 for a 1850 sq ft flat...is that reasonable?

    Cheers!

    Resale or builder ?

    If builder, add infra charges, and taxes, it will cross 1.3 definitely.

    If resale, taxes wont be so high.

    Yes... infrastructure sucks......it sucks everywhere in all Indian metros.
    Pune and Hinjewadi are not exceptions.

    On the other hand.....
    Will a nice and wide 6 lane highway going from old pune to Hinjewadi and excellent infrastructue in Hinjewadi...have depressing effects on BR's price?

    So......you see.
    If.... poor infra helps the prices ( as you see it ).....excellent infra helps prices even more.
    At that rate......we BR guys are sitting at a very sweet spot.
    Congratulations...!
