Huge infrastructural developments are underway all over Kolkata and different parts of the city are getting a complete makeover. Along with a wide network of roads, various commercial hubs, residential zones, educational institutions and sports facilities are being built in different areas in order to facilitate an urban lifestyle.
Joka, which lies in the South-Western part of Kolkata is one such area that has seen rapid transformations. Owing to the presence of all civic amenities and the area’s locational advantage, many new residential projects in Joka, Kolkata are receiving great response from buyers. Encouraged by this overwhelming response from buyers, many reputed real estate developers are launching world-class residential projects in the area.
The common perception about Joka was that of a suburb with poor connectivity. However, I was proven completely wrong once I started exploring properties here. I would like to talk about the location advantage of this place and why it is definitely a good idea to buy property here.
Joka’s rise to glory as a real estate hub majorly stems from its strategic location on the Diamond Harbor Main Road. It is conveniently located as well as well-connected to the major transportation hubs and commercial zones in Kolkata. While the Sealdah and Howrah stations lie within a distance of under twenty kilometers, the airport lies at a distance of around thirty kilometers.
Apart from the many public buses that ply on the Diamond Harbor road, cabs, autos and rickshaws are also always available all along the way. Although the Metro Station is currently a little far away, work is underway to expand the Metro route. However, the good news is – the Joka-Taratala
Metro route is now operational which has strengthened the connectivity greatly in this area.
In fact, owing to the Metro connectivity, most 2 & 3 BHK Residential Apartments near Joka Metro are also being sold at much higher prices. Work is also underway to expand the Diamond Harborroad for better connectivity.
Proximity to various healthcare facilities:
People are no more afraid to buy property in Joka as several world-class multi-specialty hospitals are now present within a radius of 2-3 Kms from this neighborhood. Be it a renowned cancer hospital, a charitable healthcare facility or a super-specialty hospital, all kinds of hospitals are within easy reach.
Proximity to commercial hubs and market places:
Along with the various local vegetable and fish markets, several supermarkets and malls are also present in Joka. Several multi-brand stores as well as deluxe malls are also coming up in strategic locations across Joka.
Presence of good educational institutions:
Everyone is aware of the presence of the prestigious IIM in Joka. However, apart from the IIM, several other reputed schools and colleges of international repute are also present in the area.
Good green cover:
Joka has comparatively better green cover than many other areas in Kolkata. There are many natural ponds, groves and gardens which add to the area’s green cover. In fact, many people are even shifting to residential townships in Joka in order to live in such beautiful surroundings.
By all means, Joka is currently one of the best places to buy property in as it is well connected to the rest of the city and also has all modern amenities required for a modern, urbane lifestyle.
