Locality & Neighbourhood

The twin city of Howrah is known for its industrial concentration. Over the years, development has been widespread uplifting the areas’ aesthetics to the core. Connectivity above all is the most essential factor for infrastructure development in Howrah. With the iconic Howrah Bridge (Rabindra Setu), Second Hooghly Bridge (Vidyasagar Setu) and suburban railways connecting Howrah with Kolkata, vital links like G.T. (Grand Trunk) Road, Grand Foreshore Road, Kona Expressway, Amta Road, Andul Road, NH-2 and NH-6 also intertwine the city providing hassle-free access to Kolkata and adjoining areas.

This directly wires to the active growth of the residential and commercial real estate market of Howrah. Living standards of the people have upgraded and they are gradually internalizing the trend of living in large gated communities that are studded with modern amenities and specifications as against the crowded and congested homes with no such facilities. Reputed developers of Kolkata are also responding to the demand and are coming up with big developments.

Foreign investments which were long outstanding have also been injected into the area for rapid infrastructure development. Recently with the proposed east-west metro corridor from Salt Lake to Howrah Maidan on the development pipeline has lured market sentiments signaling healthy price appreciation of properties in the short to medium run. Investors are finding this as an ideal time to invest and obtain optimal ROIs.
