Typically, 2-bed apartments in Bangalore start at >1200 sft and go up to almost 1700 sft. Therefore, at Whitefield, they cost >75 lakhs, when you include all the extras. For us, it was important to give you 2-bed apartments <50 lakhs and 3-bed apartments <90 lakhs.
Which means, we had to fit a 2-bed apartment in <800 sft! Was this difficult? Not really. In New York, Chicago, London, Paris and Singapore, reputed developers (including Donald Trump) have built 2-bed apartments in even 700 sft or less. By doing simple things like reducing one foot from the width of the bedroom or the kitchen, and making toilets smaller.
Yes, the work of the architects had to increase. But wasn’t it worth saving you 25 lakhs? After all, this does not just pay all the taxes, you can even fully furnish your home with the savings, and still have money left to buy a car.
