AHMEDABAD: Every area of the city has its unique identity. Likewise Motera is also known for the cricket matches held at the Sardar Patel Stadium located in that area. Further, due to its proximity with the cities of Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar, Motera has developed a lot over the last few years. It has attracted a lot of developers and house hunters owing to a number of factors.
The location of Motera is very favourable and it doesn’t face traffic woes being on the periphery of Ahmedabad. Also, the area is well-connected with the 6-lane Visat – Gandhinagar Highway, starting from Visat and ending at Infocity, Gandhinagar.
Further, the prestigious Knowledge Corridor is located off the Visat – Gandhinagar Highway, a few km ahead of Koba Circle on the way to Gandhinagar. The Corridor comprises Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University (PDPU), Gujarat National Law University (GNLU), Institute of Seismic Research (ISR), Gujarat Institute of Disaster Management (GIDM) and Gujarat Energy Research and Management Institute (GERMI). These institutes have played a great role in attracting development in the region. Moreover, the SP Ring road encircling Ahmedabad is also easily accessible via Tapovan Circle.
Siddhanth, a resident of Motera says, “This area is very well-known due to the presence of cricket stadium, ONGC, and also it falls between Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar. It has very good connectivity with the airport, Apollo hospital, Sabarmati Railway Station and S P Ring road, and BRTS bus service is also available in the region. Also, the area is peaceful, neat, clean and green and there is no traffic congestion.”
There are integrated townships and residential plots in the area which has also provided a boost to realty market. Many prominent builders have started their projects here, which have all the basic facilities like ATMs, gyms, etc. Suman, who recently bought a property for investment purpose says, “It is very good location and all the basic amenities are easily available. Also, the market is not very far from here.”
Talking about the people residing in the area, Mitesh, a shop owner in the area, says, “It is a very nice locality. All educated people and those working with ONGC, IPCL and GSPC prefer to live in this area.”
As a result of all the above factor, the demand for rental property is increasing as the number of people entering the market is growing steadily. At the same time, construction costs are also increasing day by day in this area. Thus, it is advisable that those interested in buying property in the area should start the process as soon as possible.
With the presence of BRTS bus service, proposed metro rail project, proximity with IIT Gandhinagar and the coming of commercial complexes, multiplexes, national and international retail/food chains around Visat and nearby areas, Motera has turned into a luxury hub for the cities of Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar.
