Having lived in the place for exactly a year I strongly suggest people avoid this property. There are more details below. All of the points below are from my experience and my discussions with residents who are in the committee


Pros:


Excellent floor plans


Good open space


Proximity to upcoming metro station(when it comes)


Cons:


Maintenance:




  1. We are charged Rs. 4.65/sq ft. This does not include corpus or club house.




  2. For the amount we pay we cannot get a plumber or electrician to our apartment. For that we have to rely on urban clap. Senior citizens are helpless




  3. Tenants leave after a year. They do not want to pay such high maintenance and continue to have basic problems






Water:




  1. The borewells are dry. But corporation supplies the water. But unfortunaltey because of the design of internal pipes this water cannot be used. So tanker water is needed. Let me not comment on the quality of tanker water.




  2. There are serious plumbing issues. Water is pumped from the basement storage tanks and not from over head tanks. This has caused frequent pipe bursts. On an average we have water shutdown once a week. Some of these shutdowns are > 8 hours during the day.




  3. STP water is supplied for flushing stinks. This issue is faced by many apartment complexes in Bangalore. But I do not think they spend lakhs for this and continue to have the issue. The amount spent on STP plant is more than what is needed to get tanker water!




  4. The water pressure is so high in some apartments that faucets/geysers/water purifiers/washing machines get damaged.






Electricity:




  1. Frequent power outages. Though the property management(PM) blames this on BESCOM, I do not think so. The power fluctuates so frequently that appliances conk.




  2. Generators are supposed to kick in within 30 seconds but it takes 10-15 minutes sometimes. Imagine stuck in the lift or when you wait for the lift.






Internet:




  1. Builder has tied up with airwire. There are issues with both airwire and the infrastructure provided. The are frequent packet drops and disconnections. When there is a power outage the servers have to reboot. So you lose internet. You cannot work from home. online TV is ruled out.




Lifts:




  1. There are 2 lifts for 28 floors(basement1, 2, 26 floors). This falls short massively. For garbage collection one lift is used and it takes~3 hours. There are frequent lift breakdowns and regular maintenance that happen for 8 hours. So in summary we have only 1 lift 50% of the time which is massive shortfall. Using the stairs is common during school time. Kids are suffering




  2. For power saving last week they decided to turn off one lift.






(The lift issue is something that I should have paid attention. I cannot blame the builder now)


Environment:


Do not get fooled by their claim to be a IGBC gold compliant.




  1. There are massive fresh water wastage, pipes leak in the basements, rain water is pumped out instead of recharging.




  2. The whole place is concrete. There is no scope to plant trees. Whatever little that is planted at the edges would cause structural damage




  3. No in house composting. The machine broke down within 6 months.




  4. LED lights over time have been replaced with CFL




  5. Street lights were on solar energy when we moved in. Now they are connected to BESCOM because there are issues






Ameneties:


Clubhouse was supposed to be operational in Dec 2016. It is Nov 2019 and stucture is not complete. When the clubhouse comes it is open to outsiders. Please be aware of this(I did not know)


There is no party hall. Events are hosted in the basement


one tennis court has temporary nets.


volleyball court is on the edge of property that the ball goes out because the wall height is low.


An open piece of land is called a football field where the ground is uneven.


General:


Few apartments do not get sun at all


Noise in the area is high. Its from religious places and also generators from neighborhood


If you like to pay 10, 000 per month and struggle for water, electricity, internet, ameneties, lift then this is the place to be.
