- 18 May 2018
Chennai houses some excellent locations where you can raise a family amidst green surroundings and in proximity to key social infrastructure, including schools. We list top three such locations.
In 2017, a study by a prominent website in the Indian real estate space revealed that home buyers and those looking to rent in Chennai – also in Delhi and Bengaluru – preferred 2 BHK flats in both the affordable and luxury housing segments. Over 40% of the people surveyed were interested in 2 BHK homes, while approximately 20% preferred 3 BHK homes.
If you are looking to set up home in Chennai and have a growing family to think of, you could consider these three fast-growing locations in the IT city:
1) Avadi: Avadi properties offer all the advantages of a fast-developing suburb located off NH4 and close to the Outer Ring Road, to the North West of Chennai. Rapidly emerging as an affordable housing hub, Avadi’s strategic location ensures easy access to industrial clusters like Sriperumbudur and Oragadam. Located near Chennai city, Avadi is well connected to the main city via bus and train services. In addition to local trains, many long-distance trains to Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka also halt at Avadi. Boasting a strong military lineage, Avadi is surrounded by major defense establishments. The area is also rapidly developing into an IT hub, with significant employment potential. In addition to industrial infrastructure, Avadi boasts well-developed social and retail infrastructure. Families with children can rest assured as Avadi is a strong education hub with reputed schools and colleges. In fact, encouraged by the positive prospects of the location, several developers have cast a keen eye on the suburb, and new projects are being added to its skyline with increasing frequency.
Mahindra Lifespaces chose Avadi as the location of its first affordable housing project in India, aptly named ‘Happinest, Avadi’, in 2014. These 1 BHK and 2 BHK houses for sale in Avadi are located just off the Poonamalle-Avadi High road, with good connectivity to schools, public transport hubs, and also the Ambattur IT parks.
