High-rise buildings dot the skyline of Gurgaon. With increase in population, the demand for high-rise and low-rise buildings is increasing in Gurgaon.
In Gurgaon, high-rise structures or tall buildings have become very popular, going by their potential to decongest the ever-increasing growth of the urban sprawl and the urban population. Gurgaon is witnessing massive population expansion on account of migration of people from other states and surrounding areas, leading to an increase in the housing demand, along with the rise in the cost of land. The high-rise buildings have become an easy solution to accommodate this growing population in the metropolitan cities of the country, including Gurgaon.
How are high rise structures different from low rise or mid rise buildings?
High-rise buildings are tall building structures with 8 or more floors, mid-rise structures have 4 to 8 floors, while the low-rise structures have less than 4 floors. Mid- and high-rise buildings are popular for residential and commercial purpose in densely populated urban areas. High-rise structures have become popular on Gurgaon city’s urban fringe. These are designed in contemporary style with all the basic and modern amenities.
Several leading real estate builders have come up with exclusive high-rise, low-rise, mid-rise residential complexes in Gurgaon. Worth mentioning are the Vatika Lifestyle Homes, a group housing project of both high- and mid-rise buildings spread across 12 acres in Sector 83, Gurgaon and the Vatika Homes and City Homes, a mix of low-rise and mid-rise structures spread across 8 acres in Sector 83, Gurgaon.
Each type of building structure has their respective characteristics. Low-rise residential apartments offer more privacy. Rent negotiability is easier. But, they have fewer amenities compared to high-rise buildings and are less flexible with leases. It is also said that in low-rise buildings, it is easier to put out fires.
High rise buildings act as landmarks with the tall towers, a unique skyline and efficient use of the land. Home owners get a better view and a cleaner environment with all facilities within the gated community. Worth mentioning is the Vatika Seven Lamps Gurgaon, which have become a prominent landmark in NH-8 as well as the 24-metre sector road because of the seven uniquely designed tall high-rise seven towers. High rises are always more expensive than low-rise buildings. Even then, people are willing to invest, as a majority of the building structures are high rises only.
