Arcadia Phase-2

The company's project Arcadia Phase-2, is a super luxurious independent gated villa community located in Whitefield which is spread across 30 acres. What makes the project a great investment opportunity for buyers is its location. Whitefield is a burgeoning micro-market that has seen enormous development in the recent times, due to the IT boom in the city. Over the period of time it has turned into a self-sustaining area, thus reshaping Whitefield as a major suburb and among the most sought after real estate localities in the country. This micro-market is progressively developing into a standalone microcosm, with adequate social infrastructure already in place and even more coming up rapidly.

In addition to the significant IT influence in Whitefield, the presence of good social infrastructure, rapidly developing physical infrastructure and highly reputed educational institutions in the vicinity make Whitefield a highly desirable location in all aspects. While being rated as one of the topmost emerging tech hubs in Asia, Whitefield is admittedly not entirely free of challenges. With over 700 industries, IT parks, malls, international schools and residential spaces jostling for space in this corridor. Improving infrastructure such as flyovers, the Outer Ring road (ORR) and the 8-lane Peripheral Ring road will connect Whitefield to other major roads.
