Bangalore ranks as one of India’s best cities in terms of infrastructure. Among the prominent localities of this humongous metropolis, HSR Layout holds a special place. This is primarily because this South-East Bangalore locality has become a gateway to IT hubs like Electronic City and Whitefield. HSR stands for Hosur Sarjapur Road. It was developed by the BDA in 1984. However, major infrastructural development here only began in 2000, as a result of the boom of IT companies in the city. All this has led to HSR Layout having some of the most searched rental properties in Bangalore.
Known to many older Bangaloreans as Kuvempunagara, BTM Layout is named after the areas it’s geographically sandwiched between-Byrasandra, Tavarekere, and Madiwala. This locality is one of the most popular residential layouts in Bangalore, and has grown from a sparsely populated region to a self-sufficient locality. In fact, BTM Layout is among the priciest real estate locations in the Garden City today.
Electronic City is the information technology hub in Bengaluru, and is located in the southernmost outskirts of Bengaluru. It consists of three zones called phases – Phase I, Phase II and Phase III. Even though the locality has all the essential amenities like banks, departmental stores, multi-speciality clinics, restaurants, fast food outlets etc, the property prices here are much lower than other areas of Bengaluru. If you work at one of the many companies in or around Electronic City, living here is a great choice.
Up until the late 1990s, Whitefield was just a quaint village on the outskirts of Bangalore. In fact, back then, Whitefield only had a population of 130 people.
Fast forward to 2017 and it’s impossible to imagine that this bustling, highly developed region of Bangalore was once nothing more than 2000 acres of agricultural land. Now this region is highly sought after in the property market, with the rent in Whitefield road for a 2BHK going as high as INR 40000 per month.
