An ‘Aerotropolis’ also known as ‘Airport City’ is defined as a metropolitan sub region where the infrastructure and economy are centered around the airport. The city of Dubai, The Changi Airports International in Singapore, The California Aerotropolis in San Diego, The African Aerotropolis in South Africa and most recently The Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Malaysia are some examples of metropolises that have transcended into airport cities. Devanahalli in Bangalore is not exactly what you would call an Aerotropolis by definition. But, in terms of the function it performs, the economic and infrastructural developments brought about by the inauguration of the Kempegowda International airport, Devanahalli can be considered as an ‘airport town’. Take Devanahalli’s serene and green environment into consideration and you have a potent blend of tranquil living spaces supported by seamless connectivity.
Devanahalli is a town, located 40 km north of Bangalore. The city of Bangalore has gone through a huge boom in the last 2 decades. This economic upturn has resulted in a lot of people travelling to the city for work, business and better opportunities. The old airport was ill-equipped to handle the masses, leading to the development of the new airport. Devanahalli’s awakening from its slumber coincides with the development of the Bangalore International Airport (BIA), also referred to as Kempegowda International Airport (KIA).
Devanahalli, in the last couple of years, has seen a lot of infrastructural activity. In fact, it has been the focus of real estate projects in the city. Some of the most awaited developments in this region are - the multi-billion dollar Devanahalli business park which is spread across 400-acres and would also include an IT Park. An aerospace park, a science park and a 10 billion dollar financial city, which would rival Gujarat's and Maharashtra’s financial cities, would attract a lot of opportunities and people to this region. Further, the 22 billion dollar, 12000-acre BIAL IT Investment region is also being developed in Devanahalli. These projects once complete would totally transform the landscape of this region. Lastly, a new satellite ring road is being planned in order to connect Devanahalli to the rest of Bangalore and nearby areas like Doddaballapur.
Devanahalli’s location gives it the strategic advantage of being able to relish Bangalore’s pleasant weather, its greenery and at the same time avoid the city’s pollution and traffic congestion. It has itself been blessed with an abundance of green spaces like forests, rivers and hills that protect the sanctity of this town. The pristine Nandi Hills is located a short drive-away from here. The biodiversity of these Hills greatly influence Devanahalli’s environment. The forest surrounding the hills acts as a platform for cloud condensation, as a result of which every morning, the trees are covered in water. Therefore, it’s not surprising to see that these hills are rich in birdlife and attracts a lot of birdwatchers and tourists.
Devanahalli is surrounded by some of the most eco-friendly settlements further enhancing the beauty of this sleepy town. Wake up in your abode here to misty mornings and breathe in the fresh morning air. The promise of a surreal view, a breathtaking landscape and breezy afternoons in a burgeoning metropolis is rare but that sums up everything that is true of Devanahalli.
We, at House of Hiranandani, are in a constant search of places that give people a fulfilling sense of living. Our projects are strategically located in growth corridors that offer seamless connectivity, convenience and retain its connection with nature. We therefore believe in the idea that modern living spaces should be adequately balanced with nature, and it has inspired us to create a beautiful community in Devanahalli, Bangalore. A beautiful abode nestling in the serene lap of nature. Take a glimpse of our project in the below video.
