URBAN DEVELOPMENT

Livablity Intro

Rapid urbanisation is a complex challenge today. And developing holistic ecosystems that offer inclusive and high standards of living – even in the face of expansion – is paramount.

Our diverse capabilities of building sustainable cities span across conceptualisation to planning, to design and infrastructure development. As one of India’s leading real estate developers, we have not one, but two integrated cities in our portfolio.

At the heart of our abilities is a home-grown approach – an emphasis on culture, communities, and connectedness that lends a warmth of purpose to our smart cities.

Thought bg Livablity

Building smart cities that redefine what the world calls,
‘sustainable urbanisation’.

OUR CAPABILITIES

URBANPLANNING

URBAN PLANNING

With over two decades of experience in city planning, we have executed a multitude of projects around the world. Our approach to planning is to combine green design with affordability. And we apply this philosophy to every blueprint – whether a premium sports complex, or an industrial corridor, or an integrated city.

Housing

HOUSING

Through high-quality urban spaces, we have democratised home ownership for residents. Our homes emulate the twin-philosophy of 'healthy living' and 'green design'. Using energy-efficient techniques such as Cellular Lightweight Concrete (fly ash) during construction, and environment-friendly concepts such as rain water harvesting, we promote a healthier view of the future.

Environment

ENVIRONMENT

In every project we undertake, we ensure that we are deeply committed to the parameters of carbon neutrality, water security, clean energy, and more. Our pledge to the environment is manifested in our affiliation with EP100 – a global commitment by The Climate Group to double energy productivity by 2030.
