At GoodEarth we choose our community locations with care and deliberation. We seek out locations that offer one a harmony with nature while at the same time being in proximity to all the important locations that one would need for lifestyle, work and recreation. In Bangalore we are located in South Bangalore on Mysore Road, which has an interesting history and is today one of the most sought after locations.
Mysore Road as the name goes, leads to the city of Mysore one of whose many names is “the city of incense.” Is it any surprise then that the road connecting Bangalore and this city smells like freedom?
Once upon a quiet, sleepy road
Just a few decades ago, Mysore Road had comprised mostly agricultural farmlands. The most important landmark close by was the site of the Sholay film shoot. The river Vrishabhavathi would serenely wind its way down with water you could drink (once upon a time, yes). It was also home to many industrial areas and nodes.
Post the IT boom, Mysore Road did lag behind in terms of the numbers, but it did see slow traction. And once it’s sister hubs of Jayanagar and Kanakapura Road started booming, Mysore Road followed suit. However it did so, albeit with a slower and gentler pace. It slowly grew into one of the most sought-after real estate opportunities in Karnataka. One of the important reasons is the emergence of recent initiatives that have allowed it to forge closer ties with city and suburbs.
Mysore Road Today – A Techno-Commercial hub today
Mysore Road today has developed into a major hub, yet without the travails and drawbacks that accompany development. For one, it offers all the advantages of location and infrastructure yet as earlier mentioned, it comes with an air of freedom – a feeling you can expect in a precious few real estate areas that are booming.
On one side, there’s the strategic proximity to schools, colleges, hospitals, malls, and supermarkets. On the other side, it keeps you far from the proverbial madding crowd! The serene ambiance that permeates along this road seems unprecedented, given how easily accessible those private and public facilities are – especially if you are at any of GoodEarth’s residential communities on Mysore Road.
