The Undeniable Charm of South Bangalore
Bangalore, especially Old Bangalore with its quaint core, is close to the heart of many residing in the city. Amidst all the continuous infrastructural growth and the emergence of upmarket neighbourhoods, South Bangalore is one area that still holds onto its old-world charm.
Many new home buyers and real estate investors are looking to buy property in South Bangalore, especially apartments in Electronic City. Majorly because South Bangalore is turning into one of the most preferred residential areas. Superior connectivity, historical landmarks, heritage culinary hotspots, a rich socio-cultural milieu, tree-lined avenues and prominent commercial and shopping areas are some top reasons for the rise of new properties in South Bangalore.
Here's an in-depth look at why South Bangalore is one of the most promising localities:
It is easily one of the best-connected areas in the whole city. Important arterial roads like Hosur Road, Sarjapur Road and Outer Ring Road connect this area with prominent localities like MG Road and Hebbal. The city’s core commercial area, Central Business District (CBD) is also well-connected to South Bangalore.
Kanakapura Road and Bannerghatta Road link suburban areas like Harlur, Banashankari and Bellandur to central areas of the city. The green line of the Namma metro which runs through Silk Board and Electronic City is expected to considerably reduce the travel distance between South Bangalore and other parts of the city.
Commercial & Cultural Hub
The old suburb of Basavangudi still retains its hallmark old-fashioned tiled house, and the Puttanna Road here is replete with many cultural influences. The Makkala Koota & the Indian Music Experience Museum (IME), India’s first interactive music museum located at Brigade Millennium Avenue in JP Nagar, attracts music lovers in huge numbers.
Vintage theatres such as Uma Theatre, eateries with a rich legacy like Vidyarthi Bhavan and markets such as Gandhi Bazar that dot South Bangalore are still popular with people. The locality is an eclectic mix of both old and new with modern schools, colleges, hospitals, major Tech Parks, recreational zones or shopping malls.
South Bangalore is an area in Bangalore that is still known for its green cover. This locality is especially preferred by the residents for its calmness and serene atmosphere with a huge number of trees, biological parks, botanical gardens and greenery in and around.
Spread across 240 acres of land, the hugely popular Lal Bagh is in South Bangalore. The garden hosts more than 1000 species of flora and conserves trees that are 100 years old.
