Pedestrian safety in the city is set to get a boost with the Noida Authority building an important skywalk at one of the busiest crossings. Noida Authority has initiated a tender for a proposed skywalk project to be located from Sector 15 Metro station to the Indian Oil Building (IOC) located on Udyog marg in the city. This 70-meter long pedestrian pathway will come at a cost of Rs8 crore.

Noida Sec 94 to see good days ahead


Property scenario in Sector 94 is on an upswing due to boost in local infrastructure and improvement in transport connectivity. Take a tour through this locality with us to know what’s happening on ground.

Noida is one of the rare cities where the real estate segment has continued to grow despite a slowdown elsewhere in the last two years.  While most visible growth is happening towards Noida Expressway and Greater Noida West, but central Noida property scenario is buzzing with activity too.

Sector 94 is one such locality where real estate developments are on in full steam. Private property developers and the local government alike have initiated projects here. Supertech was one the real estate developers who bought about 114 acres of land in 2011 for its ambitious residential Supernova project. Since then they, and others real estate builders, have been quietly working to complete their projects here. Here’s a low down on what’s happening on ground here:

Location: Located right next to road connecting Noida and Delhi from the Kalindi Kunj stretch. Approachable from Mahamaya flyover. Equal distance from Noida, Greater Noida and Delhi.

Profile: Land in this sector has been allotted for mixed use development. Private developers are already working on their projects. The government has recently announced that a start of the art business centre and amusement hub will be developed here. Land for these projects has been allotted and on ground progress will begin soon.

Accessibility: Excellent connectivity with road since it is on the arterial road connecting Noida and Delhi. Mahamaya flyover – which connects most prominent roads of Noida – is just five minutes away. Greater Noida is approachable through the expressway which is ten minutes away. Newly-proposed metro route which will stretch from Noida Botanical Garden to Sector 104 will take care of this sector as well. This route will be operational in May 2017.

Projects: Supertech Supernova and Eldeco Utopia

Supernova is the landmark of this locality. Supertech is developing enormous 114 acres for its ambitious Supernova project which has options ranging from 1BHK, 2BHK, 3BHK and 4 BHK.

Social infrastructure: The area is well equipped with basic local services. Some of the notable names in fashion, food and beverages, retail, educational institutes have their outlets here.

Property prospects: In 2010, property rates here were to the tune of Rs 7,000 per sq ft. Presently, they are ranging from Rs 11,000- 13,000 per sq ft. Prices here have seen appreciation of about 30 per cent. Metro connectivity in 2017 will further make this locality better accessible.




Noida realty rides on smooth infrastructure


The development of world-class expressways, advent of metro and good arterial roads has made Noida the most approachable NCR city. This has brought in more developers, projects and home seekers here.   

There was a time, particularly a decade ago, when Noida was perceived as being ‘far away’. That was a time when DND didn’t exist and connectivity between Delhi and Noida was through Kalindi Kunj bridge or via East Delhi passages. And both these were rough, broken patches of roads where traffic hauls for long stretches was very common. No taxi wanted to come to pick or drop commuters from Noida and autos were to be found rarely and over-charged.

Cut to 2016, Noida is one of the easiest to approach NCR cities. Gurgaon is connected to the tip of south and west Delhi and one has to travel for an hour at least to reach there. Faridabad is connected to another end of south Delhi and has mostly industrial stretch in that part of the city.

In 2006 itself, the NTBCL started constructing the eight-lane DND and that changed the fate of Noida forever. In 2008 when DND opened its operations and industries, factories and offices started coming the Noida way and along came multiple housing options.

Back then, the space available in Noida was ample and the property prices ranged from Rs 2,000-2,500 per sq ft (in city centre). This was far more affordable when compared to Delhi and Gurgaon both of which were pegging residential real estate prices at Rs 5,000-6,000 per sq ft respectively. Property developers saw the golden opportunity in this city and their fortunes changed soon.

Today, Noida is one the fastest growing cities across India. It was pegged as having one of the highest per capita incomes in the last census. The local government too has been benevolent in doling out sops for establishing industries, factories, commercial spaces, residential projects in the city. Result: Noida has hundreds of new housing projects in the city where new residents are flocking in every passing year.

Noida central is chock-a-block and has extended new areas of development, namely Greater Noida, Yamuna Expressway and Greater Noida West.

Noida is connected with Delhi from DND and this takes care of most traffic. The connecting road between Noida and Delhi across Kalindi Kunj barrage has been repaired and a parallel eight lane road is being constructed there. This road, on entering Noida, leads to recently constructed Mahamaya flyover which is a huge loops connecting all prominent roads in Noida.

The expressway between Noida and Greter Noida is world class and its stretch on Yamuna Expressway region is state-of-the-art. The internal roads in Noida are well maintained too.

The advent of metro in Noida in the beginning of this decade has been a boon too. Presently metro rail connectivity in Noida is till Botanical Garden station, but this will be extended to Greater Noida in one ends and Saket in Delhi at the other end. That will take about five years to happen but that will create a seamless connectivity through the city.

Taxi services to and fro the city are plenty, and add to that the bike taxi that recently started options in the city. With the infrastructure growing, the city real estate is in upswing already.
