WFH is here to stay: Smarter homes for convenience & adaptability

With the remote work culture likely to sustain, property developers recognize the desirability of a remote office in their upcoming projects. Today, residential complexes offer workplaces and wholly integrated business centers for residents.


More than a year after the COVID-19 pandemic began, demand for homes in the market remains robust. Builders are awakened to the fact that a blend of remote and in-office work is likely to persist in the foreseeable future. To offer the best for its residents, builders offer co-working spaces and business centers within residential complexes. 

These amenities provide the necessary change in many ways. As a novel idea, the Pride Purple Group has mooted a fully integrated co-working Business Center, together with facilities that include more than 15 workstations, a library, meeting room, wireless internet connectivity, washrooms, pantry, etc.


The luxury of having a working office within residential complexes


A customer-centric real-estate developer was essential to develop a concept that created comfortable workspaces within the residential complex. Though a novel idea, “we envisaged early on the future of work-from-home work model. Besides, we also felt that such spaces offer a great change of scene and are perfect for residents who work for long monotonous hours”, says Mr. Harshwardhan Agarwal. Thus, there are a host of advantages in this arrangement, both from the perspective of customers and builders.


It allows residents to work without disturbance from their family members or compromising their home spaces. With safe protocols for social distancing in place, business centers afford a chance to work in independent workplaces near the comfort of home.


For residents, this can prove to be beneficial on many counts. Co-working spaces without distractions or space constraints is a retrofit in many upcoming projects. According to ANAROCK Property Consultants, “offering co-working spaces as an added feature in residential or mixed-use developments is a time notion.”


Such co-working spaces within the residential complex have a lot to offer in terms of experience and amenities. Typically, the facility is available free of cost and without any hidden expenses. While it provides a luxury of a comfy workplace for working professionals, you are well within the vicinity of your home.


Having incorporated the concept of co-working spaces early on, the Pride Business Centers are a unique feature at Park Astra and Park Connect of Codename Park District. Spread over two floors, with added benefits of a well-appointed reception desk, a mini theatre, and a video conferencing room.


With one year of COVID experience behind us, one can safely conclude that co-working spaces are a nice amenity for residents. They offer a pleasant change of scene, safe interaction with like-minded people, and some respite from the routine work-life without compromising the home space – these are among the many significant benefits.

Codename Park District offers a full-fledged dedicated business center for professionals working from home. Working in specially appointed spaces with excellent natural light and floor-to-ceiling windows and beautiful views provides better meaning to a flexible work atmosphere.

Buying a residential property in such a bustling area is easy, as various parameters must be considered before buying the right home. Connectivity, infrastructure, green surroundings, amenities at the doorstep are just some of the aspects on the top of the list. During recent years, there has been a shift in preferences for new-age home buyers. The budget, neighbourhood, and social infrastructure top the list for the new home buyers. We roll it up in this article on why Bibwewadi may be considered for real estate investment in Pune. 


Infrastructure and Connectivity

Hassle-free connectivity and developed social infrastructure are what describes it the best. While on the one hand, Bibwewadi is situated close to the Market Yard, Gultekdi, the place is not farther away from Shivajinagar or MG Road, the main shopping areas of Pune. Easy connectivity to the rest of the city and access to the Pune-Mumbai Highway are among the advantages for home buyers. 

Owing to the proximity to the main business centres of Pune, Bibwewadi has been a natural choice for entrepreneurs and businesspeople alike. But given the ease of connectivity, the area has witnessed a surge in buying activity among young IT professionals and senior residents. 


Safe buying opportunity and hope for good price appreciation

The sprawling residential complexes that have cropped up in this area have fetched good returns in the past decade. With good infrastructure and amenities, social infrastructure such as parks, recreational clubs, etc., one can hope to get good returns in the short and medium-term. 

Compared to some of the upcoming residential areas such as Magarpatta, Undri, Kharadi, the one advantage that Bibwewadi offers is a competitive price range in a centrally located area. We estimate that the apartments situated in this area will fetch good returns compared to other projects in a similar locality, from a medium to long-term horizon.  


As the adage goes, “Real estate cannot be lost or stolen, nor can it be carried away. Purchased with common sense and managed with reasonable care, it is about the safest investment in the world.” This holds so true while buying Park Landmark by Pride Purple Group. The apartments are available at various configurations of 2-BHK and 3-BHK and priced at a competitive market rate. A sheer pride for prospective homebuyers.
