In The Quest For Good Old Bangalore | Assetz Marq 2.0

Life In Bangalore City

Have you ever wondered why you decided to come and settle in the beautiful city of Bengaluru? 

When I moved here 15 years ago, I recollect being awestruck by the lush greenery and the amazing weather this city had to offer especially for someone coming from a hot and humid city like Chennai. Do not get me wrong, as having grown up in Chennai for most of my life, that city will always hold a special place in my heart. I distinctly remember telling a friend in the first few months of my stay in Bangalore that it might be a beautiful city but it would never replace Chennai as I was emotionally attached to that city.

To anyone starting a life in a new city, I would say that I was quite lost in my mind and missed my home (Chennai) terribly, but the warm and inviting nature of Bangaloreans contributed a lot towards me adjusting quickly to life here. Though I speak a few south Indian languages, unfortunately, Kannada was not one of them, and initially, I was worried about how I would adjust with travelling in public transport. Then as the days passed, I realised that Bangalore is genuinely cosmopolitan with a mix of Kannadigas, Tamilians, Telugites, Keralites, Mumbaikars, North Easterns, Europeans – a blend of people from all cities. There’s something about this city, which embraces one and all and makes you feel right at home.

As the years passed by, I moved around a lot with my mom due to jobs in different parts of the city. I witnessed the differences every area in Bangalore had to provide. True to its name, Bangalore has many lakes and parks which has contributed to the beautiful climate for which this city is well-known. I still recollect taking my first walk in Cubbon Park and then realising that Banglore is such a hub for activities on Sunday mornings for fitness enthusiasts like me who love to jog in the mornings in such open-air & fresh breathing spaces.

Having lived in Koramangala, RT Nagar, Banaswadi, I finally landed up in an area which was considered in 2008 to be the outskirts of Bangalore city. I took a little time getting used to my new place post marriage, as it was unusual to wake up with birds chirping in an area surrounded by trees with no sound of traffic. The beauty of the place and the tranquillity was lovely to be in, as Bangalore was changing right before my eyes from what I had known about it before. I was feeling suffocated.

The Boom of Real Estate in Bangalore

It has been 11 years in this area, and it is no longer considered to be at the outskirts of Bangalore. Real estate giants are cashing in on the real estate boom in the city. For a while now, my hubby and I have been thinking of moving further away from the city keeping our future and the future of our children in mind. Of course, it is easier said than done. After looking out for places for over a year, we lost all hopes until I went past a billboard mentioning a property called Assetz Marq 2.0 near Whitefield Hoskote road when I was on the way to my gym. The area I am referring to is called Kadugodi, and it is not a very well known area as it is considered to be a bit far from city centre. That said, it connects directly to Whitefield in ten minutes but now probably lesser since the metro would be up and running. The other end of this road leads to Old Madras Road which connects to Bangalore city centre in about 45 minutes.

After a lot of mulling, I told my hubby that we should have a look at it hoping that it is not as one puts it “old wine in a new bottle”. I did my research as usual on the property before I decided to visit it and found that 2.0 stands for their second venture in the area after the success of the first one. Even in the midst of all the concretisation and development, I have always found the area around Kadugodi to hold the charm of the good old Bangalore. Life is slow paced, and whenever I am in the area, I do not feel the claustrophobia and pollution which is found in the city.

Assetz Marq 2.0

The property Assetz Marq 2.0 is essentially a small township over an impressive area of 22 acres of which gardens and parks would occupy 6 acres. The living spaces planned are 3 BHK, and 4BHK which is probably intended more for families. What was surprising is that they also have a school within their township which is such a welcome addition. The central park area which comprises of 4 acres of land has required amenities one has come to expect such as swimming pool, tennis court, play area for children, jogging track, an outdoor gym and a pet park. One of the reasons I was looking to make a move out of my current residence is the lack of neighbours as well as proper club facilities. Nowadays such amenities are a must to lure the buyer. But the amenities that these developers promise to provide goes beyond the usual such as outdoor gym, aerobics studio, skating rink, squash court, basketball court making it a sports lovers paradise. Having so many options to play all these sports, just a walk away from home, makes it easier to stay fit and healthy.

After getting a good and thorough understanding of their external property plans, our next agenda was to understand more about their architectural plans. While their concept of being Vaastu Compliant along with the idea of 75% floor plan efficiency was commendable, what caught my attention was the balcony area and open living and bedroom spaces. I am someone who has the habit of collecting junk over the years and utilisation of space is a must which they seem to have covered with a walk-in wardrobe and closet area in their master bedrooms.

The feature which may not seem significant now but would go a long way to ensure a better future for our children is their green feature such as water conservation through rainwater harvesting as well as energy conservation by the usage of solar facilities and energy efficient lighting in the common areas. Our country is only slowly understanding the need for proper waste disposal, and they are one step ahead with organic waste converter and waste segregation.

For those like me who no longer have the option of working in the pollution-clogged and traffic-packed streets of our once beautiful city, Assetz Marq promises a walk down memory lane with glimpses of the simpler times.

Bangalore is now home to my family and me. I truly feel that “Bangalore is a feeling, an emotion you cannot just leave.”

    Clean green space in a busy city like Bangalore was the need of the hour. I remember visiting Bangalore about 18 years ago and it was green and clean that time. Then I visited electronic city in Bangalore in 2010 and oh my gosh it took me 2 hours to reach forum mall. It was heavily congested and pollution was at another level. A township like Assetz Marq will give relief to people who want to live in clean and green space.

    Bangalore has lost the old world charm of yore, the green spaces are dwindling as the the concrete jungles take over. Projects like Assetz Marq 2.0 are doing their bit in helping reinstate the green cover by projects that incorporate green spaces and are environment-friendly too.

    In a world driven on making the most money by using up all available space, a company/ builder like Assetz Marq is definitely an asset! I like how they have selected a location which while being easily connected to the center still has the space for greenery and retains the charm of old India! I could relate to how you spoke of Chennai and then early days of Bangalore, i have had a similar experience in Delhi & North India, so i can tell you – this is one of the charms of India of the early years! However, Assetz Marq has also integrated a lot of modern amenities and environment-friendly features – so kudos to you for researching and finding such a property! All the Best in this home 🙂
