Whitefield- An Introduction
Bangalore’s popularity for being the IT-capital and a leader in the spheres of outsourcing, education and cleanliness often collides with its notorious traffic. For a city that experiences a growth rate of 10% every year (economic), it’s no surprise that more than 1000 people make the city their home, every day. The Silicon Valley in the East is home to several IT Parks and start-ups as well. The process of the city turning into a concrete jungle is directly proportional to the increase in traffic on the roads. Home buyers, hence, look for townships that offer not just location benefits of being close to their workplaces but also have good social infrastructure to minimize travel as much as they can.
Whitefield’s popularity as an IT-hub comes from its connectivity to Mahadevapura, Marathahalli, Bellandur and Krishnaraja Puram apart from being home to several IT-Parks itself. With big names like Saint Gobain, Tata, IBM, Intel, Life Tree and more in close proximity, Whitefield is at the top of the list for most people who come into the city. This led to development of social infrastructure and public infrastructure. Whitefield has some of the most popular malls in the city, good schools and restaurants as well as a well-connected network of roadways, railways and (in the future) the Bangalore metro.
