A vibrant new community focused on innovation
Emprasa Smart City, located in Bangalore, will provide accommodation and work space for 5,000 people as well as acting as a catalyst for growth for the site's surroundings.
Targeted at start-up companies and entrepreneurs, the 48-acre masterplan incorporates a range of residential options, small business space and community-focused facilities.
Both the residential units and workspaces will be fully serviced and the plans are focused on providing everything residents need onsite. Facilities include a business school, convention and exhibition centre, training facilities, 5-star hotel, 3-star serviced apartments, hospital, theatre and multiplex, over 100 retail units (with restaurants, pubs, and nightclubs alongside shopping), and leisure facilities including spa, salon, gymnasium, swimming pool and cricket and football pitches.
To help developer ARCL meet its smart city aspirations there will be Wi-Fi connectivity throughout the site, green energy generation through solar panels, energy storage, smart metering and intelligent heating and lighting systems. A fleet of onsite electric vehicles will help to discourage car ownership, reducing congestion and environmental impact.
