Bangalore best flats in the city today are majorly being lapped up by the Gen Y. Comprising techies, expats, entrepreneurs, NRIs, HNIs, and the likes, the next generation has a fresh take on apartment living and aren’t wowed by perks that are simply passé. Instead, they look for modern and practical amenities that suit their current lifestyles and make living easier. Here are five essential apartment amenities that the on-the-move millenials in Bangalore are constantly on the lookout for –
Location is one of the most crucial parameters. The house needn’t overlook a scenic landscape, but the neighbourhood should be safe, secure and well-lit. It should be easily reachable, accessible and free from the headache of traffic congestion. It should also provide easy public transport and connectivity to the residents and should ideally be free of noise and air pollution. Furthermore, they should have good access and proximity to social infrastructure elements such as entertainment hotspots, banks and grocery stores, shopping malls, hospitals, and colleges and schools. Those looking for Bangalore best flats consider a good location to be an essential amenity today.
24/7 security and maintenance is the next biggest amenity and feature that people look for in apartments today. Video phones, intercom, CCTV surveillance cameras, gated entrances, and entry codes and passes, safety measures such as fire-fighting equipment and box grills on the windows, and a 24/7 maintenance team on call are commonplace today. Some projects even feature biometric access and entry systems for residents’ safety. A good project today is one which has maintenance, safety and security measures firmly in place.
Necessities and amenities
Today, an apartment isn’t a standalone entity anymore – people look for amenities accompanying it too. According to the latest studies, more and more people in Bangalore today are becoming concerned with ecological sustainability, and are looking for the presence of green spaces in and around projects. Similarly, they are also looking for other amenities such as a fitness centre/gym, clubhouses, wi-fi access in the house, facilities for rainwater harvesting and solar lighting, swimming pools, saunas and Jacuzzis, tennis and squash courts, jogging tracks, etc.
Gone are the days when people only checked the size of the apartment before purchasing Bangalore best flats.Today, people consider flat specifications such as a lower project density, greater floor-to-ceiling height and minimum car parking as necessary amenities. A general thumb rule for project density is that a 1-acre project houses not more than 60 families, or it destroys the project’s charm, convenience, and exclusivity. Similarly, a lower floor-to-ceiling height and less car parking spaces severely compromises the quality of the project.
A wired world
According to a study conducted in Bangalore, the new-age home buyers regarded good cell phone reception and speedy, reliable internet performance high on their list of crucial requirements for apartment living. This is really not surprising, with the world going digital every day.
