Shriram Sahana apartments at Yelahanka is one of the premier luxury apartments by Shriram Properties, it was a bit difficult to track down the right person to talk about this property but our persistence got us there. We reviewed this apartment because of interest from 5 potential clients and we must say we got some good insights to share.
The apartment complex consists of two types of apartments, 2BHK + study and 3BHK flats, built over an area of 7acres it has a total of 7blocks and 364 apartments. They have amenities like a club house, swimming pool etc . Each floor had 4 apts with none of them facing each other. They have about 0.5acres alloted to children playing area. The apartments are scheduled to complete its first phase by April 2011 and will be ready to occupy by Sept 2011. You can have a look at the floor plans here . They have a model flat but no photos or videos to show for. They also claim to get 30-40% of their bookings from previous customers itself .
What REKhoj thinks?
Shriram Sahana is a trademark Shriram properties building, a lot of apartments and a community feel. This is located near Yelahanka which is touted as the next Indiranagar, it has a good reach of amenities like hospitals, schools and Metro station (proposed). There is also BMS engineering college close by which is a plus if your child is going to engineering soon. There is an SEZ (special economic zone) proposed there,which seems to be a huge bonus if things work out. Given all these factors this property looks like a good place from an investment perspective. I am not too happy about the apartment because there doesnt seem to be too much of free space within the apartment as I am someone who likes some open spaces in the apartment. The 3BHK has large bedrooms and balconies . Also given the projects coming up in the same area and the increasing prices of real estate as the market is picking up it may be a good idea to explore Sahana as an option if you are looking for something in the Yelahanka region.
From an amenities perspective they are giving the standard offering that most luxury apartments. Their prices are competitive and looking at the prices of the Shobha, Prestige and NCC urban projects the prices seem pretty good as this launch.
We had some questions from prospective clients which are below with the answers:
1) Information about rainwater harvesting system in the apartment complex?
They have plans of installing a rainwater system but haven’t decided which one it would be. The other sources of water are Kaveri and Bore well.
2) Quality of construction (there are many instances of ppl complaining about the quality of shriram esp bathrooms). ?
They clearly denied any such issues from previous customers and assured that they have a very prompt customer care department. With 14 projects already done its seems to be a good case of returning customers. I also spoke to some previous customers in Shriram Samruddhi and they are vocal about their satisfaction with their apartments . Having said that its upto the customer to do their proper research before they make the decision.
3) What is the carpet area % ?
They claim to have it btw 75-80% , I would be careful with that statistics because the person I spoke to was not sure what the % was and just gave the range.
To end this review, Shriram Sahana looks like a great investment right now because of the costs at the initial stages, if you want to wait for some more time before taking a decision there are many more projects that are coming up in that area.
