    Hope this soft launch is not like Bramha sky city,PRA and Kul nation...

  • As airport is being discussed, lets not forget that this airport is that of IAF & not a civilian airport per se. The scope for expansion is limited & Pune airport will loose its charm once new airport in Navi Mumbai/Panvel comes up. Pune airport will be mostly domestic airport only & if Pune wants its own airport, it will be somewhere else.

    Btw, I still haven't understood why proximity to airport is big advantage here ?? If this would be the case, price at Vimannagar should be higher than Kalyaninagar or Koregaon Park. Are they ? Think.

  • Viman Nagar started in late 90s,while Kalyani nagar and Koregoan park were already posh localities with premium rates by the time.

    While Viman Nagar is developing it probably may not match KP as scope for development now IN Viman Nagar has peaked.I dont think much development area is still left in Viman nagar.

    Kalyani Nagar was also not sought after locality earlier. Only when the bridge connecting north main road was done, even people not working around Nagar rd started to buy.

    Having said that, due to heavy commercialisation in K'ngr, it too has lost its charm which was there earlier.

    The layout is already in those images... floor plans attached...

    Trying to add some more details:

    Their payment schedule is out. Almost 95% of the payment is to be paid in an year(by the end of 2014)...and possession will be after 18 months (June 2016). This is because they are using aluminium formwork....and remaining things will require yr to give final finsish...

    So its like pay whole amount and wait for possession...or they get the interest on your payment without giving U home...
    Read on forums that this framework is good etc....but someone added that U cant alter...cant even a single nail...is it true?

    Society maintenance of 2 yrs will be taken at possession + Corpus fund @RS 100 psf

    It costs much more than it was understood before..

    That is why 'investing' in Pre-Pre-Launches is akin to putting your savings at risk on a craps table. Whatever happens, its the builders gain.

    There are no guarantees of getting a possession in 18 months or 80 for that matter...read stories of what KP did in Ivy estate or many other big developers...

    Still i appreciate your faar-sightedness that you are imagining the home with the intention of living in it (nails and all)...hope all strat doing that...and our RE bubble will get right sized!

  • DVMVVM,

    There is nothing to be scared.

    Just dont invest,if you are not satisfied about how the thing is shaping up.

    This project is yet another gamble.

    It may be turning point in the area,but on other hand it may result in sinking of funds into a project which may not take off as expected.

    If you want safety,go in for RTM or resale property.

    You buy what you see.

    In all other cases,you buy what is shown by the imagination of an architect.

    It is your money.

    You take care and responsibility of how you allow your money to be invested.

  • Any experience on Aluminium formwork?
    Seems that builders might shift to this due to its benefits to them(for getting max money early and then delay possession in the name of finishing activities...)
    Got on the IREF itself that its in good except zero chances of alteration.

    Well, bout this project, dont know what they will deliver against promises, but somehow feel that they will complete on time.
    Have seen that some of their projects done on time(Saw park springs n Ashiyana in same area, had seen barren land 3-4 yrs before)

    And if U see their ambitious project layout, feel that atleast they will complete for initial buildings. And when they are taking 95% of money, isnt it easy to deliver?

    Well...there are all negative opinions on pre-lauches, still some experience makes me to give a thought on it...
    We are observing Brahma Suncity from pre-launch...we thought rates too high and then always went on increasing... we had no liquid money that time, but when saw now, gave some better feeling to be in that campus(Although their boating lake is empty n many other amenities might not be functional...) But now having ready possession seems very costly.
    Same with Rohan Mithila- but heard that construction quality is poor..
    I might be wrong in relating this if bubble is going to burst!


    Still studying on both sides...just want to put forth another one..

    What is the relation between taking 95% of the money and completion? Take it in writing that they will make you wait for over a year after taking 95% of your money. Tell them to mention the date of possession in the agreement along with a penalty clause which entitles you rent for every month of delay as per market rates. See if they agree :)

    35% loading is too much. Carpet area for 3BHK is not even 1000 sqft.

    I think its common now...atleast in big projects... brahma takes 40%..must be similar in Rohan Mithila(not sure)

    Now these Pride ppl have "private garden flats" at ground floor(Garden area is part of sellable area same rate of the flat), it must go up to 40%
