Pune: Mahindra Lifespace Developers Ltd., the real estate and infrastructure development arm of the Mahindra Group, through its wholly owned subsidiary, Mahindra Bloomdale Developers Ltd, today launched Pune’s first Biophila-inspired homes in Pimpri. Inspired by human beings’ instinctive connection with nature, called biophilia, the elements of the project are influenced by natural materials, textures, patterns and shapes that rekindle old memories while building a sustainable future. Through these associations, homes at Mahindra Nestalgia will nurture an active and healthy lifestyle reminiscent of one’s childhood and enable residents of younger generations to experience a similar living and community experience.
Designed with nostalgia-inducing aesthetics, these Biophilia-inspired homes will enable physical, psychological, social and spiritual well-being. Amenities reigniting childhood memories of freedom, curiosity and innocence include Hopscotch, Sun Dial, Barefoot Park, Hammock Garden, Burma bridge, Dew Garden, Fur Park and more. Homes at Mahindra Nestalgia are cocooned in lush green expanses with a Koi Pond, an 8-shaped Foot Chi, Gupshup Adda, Rain Benches and Elder’s Parklet for residents to enjoy nature within the safe perimeter of the project.
Arvind Subramanian, Managing Director and CEO, Mahindra Lifespace Developers Limited said, “As we continue to strengthen our presence in Pune, one of our key focus markets, we are excited to introduce the city’s first Biophilia-inspired residential project. Mahindra Nestalgia is our tenth project in Pune, a city that has time and again reciprocated our product innovation with strong demand.
The role of a home and its surroundings in the overall well-being of a family has often been overlooked. Mahindra Nestalgia brings back the essence of living as we fondly remember it from our growing-up days. Many of these associations are with nature. This project will offer Punekars an opportunity to live nestled in nature, while enjoying the conveniences of a rapidly developing city”.
In line with Mahindra Lifespaces’ commitment to craft environment-friendly homes, Mahindra Nestalgia has been pre-certified with a ‘Gold’ rating by the IGBC. The project offers tangible savings to residents via low-flow water fixtures, solar water heater, LED lighting in common areas, waste segregation, etc. The sustainable features within the project will help conserve up to 7% energy annually, reduce dependency on external water sources by 52%, and divert 90% waste away from landfill.
Mahindra Nestalgia is developed on a 2.79-acre site acquired by Mahindra Lifespaces in March 2022. Phase 1 of the project comprises 249 units. The 2 and 3 BHK homes range from 730 sq.ft.to 1040 sq.ft. The climate-responsive design of Mahindra Nestalgia ensures homes have optimal sunlight, fresh air circulation and open to the neighboring tranquil landscape. It also offers thoughtfully crafted modern features like a grand lobby, swimming pool with a kids’ play pool, space for a crèche and a health club, a celebration hall, dry pantry, cinema lounge, Reader’s Bay, and provision for charging electric vehicles.
The project sits amidst well-developed social infrastructure like reputed educational institutes, healthcare facilities, and retail avenues. The locality is also home to a major employment hub with several large manufacturing and technology companies, within a 20-km radius. The area also offers superior connectivity via the Old Mumbai-Pune highway, Pune-Dhule-Nasik highway, railway stations (Kasarwadi and Pimpri), bus stop (Pimpri Chowk) and metro station (Sant Tukaram Nagar).
Mahindra Lifespaces® has been present in Pune since 2007 and has completed approximately 3.5 million
sq. ft. of development in the city. Mahindra Nestalgia is located close to the existing residential projects – Mahindra Royale, Mahindra Antheia and Mahindra Centralis – all of which are fully sold.
