Bangalore’s vast, uncontrolled growth over the years as a result of the IT boom has forced the city to grow much faster than Kempe Gowda’s original plans for it. The former farms and villages that once surrounded the city have all been transformed into vibrant neighborhoods and micro-towns that provide some relief to the masses of people that migrate there in search of jobs and, consequently, places to reside. Here are a few desirable areas to consider for real estate investing.
Undoubtedly one of the wealthiest neighborhoods in the city is Sadashivanagar. Numerous political figures and Sandalwood actors call it home, including former Chief Ministers S. M. Krishna, Ramakrishna Hegde, Dharam Singh, Veerendra Patil, D Devraj Urs, and Bangarappa, as well as former Prime Minister H. D. Deve Gowda and the founder of the Cafe Coffee Day chain, V. G. Siddhartha. Bangalore’s enormous, unchecked growth over time as a result of the IT boom has compelled the city to expand far more quickly than Kempe Gowda had expected.
All of the formerly rural fields and villages that once surrounded the city have been turned into thriving communities that offer some respite to the masses of people that move there in search of work and, accordingly, housing.
