KOLKATA: Siddha, one of the leading real estate groups in the city, is using skywalks to build its brand image. The firm on Thursday announced that there will be skywalks in all four of its upcoming housing projects in Kolkata.
Siddha Group MD Sanjay Jain said, “Earlier skywalks were seen as a luxury for only the elite. But now Siddha group is committed to bring this luxury to the middle class segment’s reach at an affordable price.” The four projects named Galaxia, Sky, Suburbia and Eden Lakeville are located at Rajarhat, EM Bypass, Southern Bypass and BT Road respectively. Special focus has been laid on the structural integrity to prevent damage from weather or earthquakes, said Jain.
The firm has incurred a cost ranging from Rs 15-30 crore per project. While the sales of the Sidhha Galaxia units have already started, the first phase of all the projects would be completed by 2020 with over 4,000 units. The design of the skywalks is done by architectural firm Agarwal & Agarwal led by JP Agarwal while the structural consultancy is looked after by Achyut Watve from JW Consultants, Mumbai. Madhup Mazumder from Design Accord has been roped in for specialised services on designing. The units have been priced at Rs 30 lakh and above.
