Mumbai October 18, 2019: The country’s leading premium and luxury developer Kalpataru has launched Kalpataru Parkcity, its integrated mixed use township project on Kolshet Road, Thane. The project is spread over 100 acres and situates around the 20.5 acre Grand Central Park.
The township comprises residential projects, commercial establishments, a high street with premium retail outlets, vibrant dining and entertainment options, a proposed ICSE school, themed landscaped areas and world class amenities catering to the lifestyle needs of various age groups.
Choice of Home Options and World Class Living
The township will be developed in phases and currently offers a choice of three residential projects. ‘Sunrise’, which is ready to move in and offers 2 and 3 BHK homes, ‘Immensa’ which offers 2, 3 and 4BHK homes, and Starlight which offers 1,2 3, 4 BHK and 3 BHK Sky Loft apartments.
Kalpataru Parkcity also houses Parkside Galleria, one of the country’s largest and one of its kind real estate experience centres spread across 40,000 square feet of built up space. Parkside Galleria offers visitors an immersive experience into the various facets that go into the making of a Kalpataru Home – superior aesthetics, innovative design, class leading quality, sustainable construction practices and cutting edge building technologies.
Kalpataru Parkcity situates around the 20.5 acre Grand Central Park, one of the country’s finest urban parks, inspired by global parks such as Singapore’s Gardens by the Bay, New York’s Central Park and Chicago’s Millennium Park. Notable among the park’s features are a three acre lake zone with landscaped promenade and fountains, thematic gardens, a uniquely designed Flora Trellis, viewing decks, and an Iconic Bridge with a viewing point that offers panoramic views of the park. The park will house thousands of trees, and plant varieties. The park also features an amphitheater by the lakefront, a thoughtfully designed kids play zone, world class skating zone, tennis and basketball courts, multi-sport artificial turf courts, multiple fitness trails, and lawns.
The Township, being developed in phases, will have both phase-wise amenities as well as township-wide amenities for use of all residents. While individual projects within the townships have their own amenities such as swimming pools, sports zones, clubhouses and lawns besides other facilities, township wide amenities include jogging paths, outdoor fitness stations, a Racket Club (with tennis, squash badminton courts & table tennis tables), Box Cricket Pitch & Putting greens and more. The township is also proposed to comprise an ICSE school, a place of worship, and High Street Retail with dining and entertainment as part of its future proposed development subject to necessary clearances and pre-requisites.
The township is designed to be self-sustaining and builds to an open space design plan that helps create a 70% open space ratio.
Global Design Standards
The township’s planning takes into account future possibilities for connection to larger city-wide systems though a connected street network, provision for bus stops, and ‘last-mile connectivity’ to proposed Metro Stations. Other transport infrastructure includes the provision of auto rickshaw stands, signalized traffic management systems, and parking for residents and visitors alike.
The township’s street and pedestrian accessibility system is planned to promote the idea of safe streets and universal access. Publicly accessible uses like retails outlets, cafes, and restaurants adjacent to streets will give life to the township and ensure “eyes on the street”. Street design and detailing takes into account best practices of walkability by provisioning for a high degree of pedestrian comfort through wide sidewalks, mid-block crossings, raised intersections for seamless and safe pedestrian connectivity, and a signage strategy that aids wayfinding through smart environmental graphics.
‘Kalpataru Parkcity’ will provide a 6 tier security system to ensure the safety and security of residents and visitors. It features Command Centre for Central Security, security guards and CCTV monitoring at township entry, CCTV surveillance in common areas, security personnel, boom barrier and CCTV monitoring at phase entry, CCTV, security personnel, guard console and lobby cameras in building lobby and video door phone for home security at apartment level. RFID tags are also provided for secure vehicular access.
‘Kalpataru Parkcity’ incorporates several eco-friendly practices that promote sustainable living. Rainwater harvesting, sewage treatment plant (STP) and water efficient features have been incorporated to save water, energy efficient electrical equipment, LED lighting in all public parks, timers in parking lot, proposed EV charging stations for electric vehicles, solar panels and wider window opening size for optimal use of natural resources and robust solid waste management practices.
