upon a time Pune was a very sedate Maharashtrian city... very representative
of the Maratha heartland.
The arrival of Osho Rajneesh and his flock changed that completely.
The Ashram put Pune on the world map and has given this deeply traditional
and staid city a strange new and very odd flavour. The migration
of plenty of Bombay folk to the town too is increasingly giving
the city a more cosmopolitan nature.
the top attraction of the city is the Osho Commune International.
Besides, the Nallah Park, made by the Commune, also makes for an
: Pune's sylvan surroundings have attracted homebuyers
and investors too. The salubrious climate was always the attraction.
The growth of the IT and ITES sector has spurred a tremendous upsurge
in property demand - both commercial as well as residential; ownership
as well as lease. Today, the information technology sector is the
prime mover for growth of real estate in Pune.
In the commercial /industrial sector the demand is high in the vicinity
of Infotech Parks. Besides Government sponsored parks, a number
of privately promoted parks have also come up. Economically, there
is a lot of disposable income amongst Pune's employed and this has
triggered many multiplexes, malls and premium branded retail outlets
also to establish themselves. Plots are being booked fast and state-of-the-art
built up complexes are being occupied rapidly.
The residential sector has seen a demand in Aundh, Baner,
Balewadi, Undri and Kalyaninagar, Kharadi areas and beyond, where
most projects boast of facilities such as Club houses, swimming
pools, gyms, cafeterias, etc.
Bungalow plots as well as luxuriously built row houses and
farm houses, are available in the suburban areas which are now in
demand because of their unpolluted surroundings. However the suburbs
are extended to practically the outskirts of Pune. Availability
of bungalow plots are now in the extreme suburbs. Those within the
suburbs are quite expensive.
