Indeed, Whitefield has come up as a major alternative in the residential segment I believe for those wishing to stay in close proximity to nearby IT and ITeS hubs. Godrej United and similar big projects are being developed here and there is great connectivity as well. Whitefield is well connected to multiple IT parks and other business parks along with shopping malls like the famous Inorbit Mall. The Outer Ring Road and Old Madras Road give great connectivity while the Purple Line Phase 2 of the Namma Metro is another connectivity boost for the area. The Bangalore International Airport is situated roughly 44 kilometres away with the nearest railway station located only 3 kilometres away from the locality. Property prices are mostly in the mid-range and are sometimes premium for the right project.
The National Highway 44 can also be accessed within a range of 5 kilometres from here. Leading hospitals like the Sri Sathya Sai Super Specialty Hospital are also located nearby along with several schools, restaurants and other necessary social infrastructure. It is definitely a good locality to stay in and is quite bustling also. Several IT professionals and families are now choosing to live here.
Thank you so much Eshita. It is my pleasure. Did you know that Whitefield was once a quaint Anglo-Indian village? This leafy hamlet draws its name from David Emmanuel Starkenburgh White and was founded in 1882 which is like way back. It covers 4,000 acres originally granted by the Maharaja of Mysore back then. A lot of history in these localities than we imagine.
Indeed, Whitefield has a captivating story from being a sleepy hamlet to a buzzing area in Bangalore today. For livability however, I think Koramangala (if you have the budget that is) is the plushest place to live. Everything is easily accessible here.
