Integrated Township Project at Kukatpally, Hyderabad

The operations of the Hyderabad Metro which began in November 2017 now runs 72 kms across the city. The Metro coupled with the eight lane 158 kms Outer Ring Road has eased commute timings in the city. Several micro markets have developed over the last 2 / 3 years with relatively better priced properties and living zones close to the places of work.

As a result, the market absorption for residential and IT / ITES businesses have increased in several micro markets mainly Gachibowli, Madhapur, Cyberabad and Kukatpally. The growth of the IT / ITES sector has also resulted in the development of the organised retail sector in these areas.

Our project is located near the rapidly growing Cyberabad IT / ITeS and financial hubs. It is a 100 acre integrated mixed use township located in Kukatpally which is easily accessible to all the hotspots of the city. This township will comprise of IT / ITeS office space, and spaces for retail, education, hospitality, healthcare and residential apartments. The detailed master plan for Phase 1 has been submitted.
