An Investment Hotbed – What Makes North Bengaluru So Special

Ever since the emergence of the city’s new international airport in this area, there has been an unprecedented boom in north Bengaluru, making it the fastest appreciating property location. As a refreshing change from the confines of the city, there are large tracts of land available here, and this has spurred a number of property ventures.

Several factors make north Bengaluru such an alluring destination. For starters, there’s great road connectivity thanks to an express highway, and plans are already afoot for a high-speed rail link and monorail. Many educational institutes of repute, and multi-specialty hospitals dot the vicinity. Taking note of the tremendous potential, the government has initiated various IT/SEZ projects in this belt. And then, of course, is the proximity to the city’s ring road, and future connectivity through the planned peripheral ring road.

As a result, industry watchers expect property prices in north Bengaluru to go only one way in the near future – further up. No wonder investors in Bengaluru and other parts of India, as well as NRIs, are making a beeline. Clearly the future is here and it makes sense to invest now.
