Mindspace realty launches Queenstown, luxurious residential township of 3 and 31/2 bhk flats, near Chinchwad railway station

Location...Location....heart of Pimpri Chinchwad

Pimpri Chinchwad is taking on the role of being a whole new Pune, website of "Queenstown" claims. I find it a little difficult to accept but i can not disagree.

A large number of people are shifting to Pimpri Chinchwad to take advantage of the upcoming lifestyle. This is not true. And not wrong too. We Punekars are smart. Aundh annex - Pimple Saudagar, Pimple Nilakh, Wakad and Rahatani is all "Pimpri Chinchwad." But we try our best to claim it as a part of Pune. So how can i say people are preferring Pimpri Chinchwad over Pune!

Of course, i have to accept that "Pimpri – Chinchwad present numerous lifestyle and business opportunities to the residents. Upcoming malls, multiplexes, improved road-way connectivity, industrial setups, Aditya Birla Hospital, and all." Certainly, Queenstown's location, near Chinchwad railway station, is the best location in Pimpri Chinchwad.

Luxurious Amenities and Specifications

Full page newspaper ad says, 7 acres of breathtaking landscape, vibrant clubhouse, sparkling swimming pool! Website says, 'Experience the magic of vast freedom with the 70% open areas that comprise of vehicle free zones,..' and 'The landscaped gardens of Queenstown are an artist’s creation of a true masterpiece.' I can believe in all these claims.

No, not because the project is designed by Architect Hafeez Contractor but because of Prashant Bhandari of Bhandari Infrastructure. He was my client and i have a great respect for his creative intelligence and execution capabilities. Of course, Hermes Group and Urban Infrastructure Venture Capital makes his team more strong.

And the property rate is...any guess?

Queenstown has 14 'magnificent' 12 story towers. There is no area statement on the website. But there are 3 and 3&1/2 bhk flats of good size. Planning of the flats is typical Hafeez Contractor's Mumbai planning. Dinning area is exactly in front of the main entrance! Which personally, i do not like. However, there is one advantage. You can experience the joy of living in Pune and Mumbai in Chinchwad.

But, how much you will pay for this? What would be the property price, the real estate rate? Is Pune real estate slowing down? Is it right to book the flat now or should i book after six months? I know you have many questions. Sure, i will answer as soon as i can. To make sure you do not miss it, please, subscribe to this blog or join my group!
