Signature Club Resort at Brigade Orchards, launched!

First of its kind Club Resort concept in Bangalore

Bangalore June, 26 2016BCV Developers Pvt. Ltd., a joint venture of Brigade Enterprises Ltd., Classic Group and Valmark, today launched its latest lifestyle club ‘Signature Club Resort’ at Brigade Orchards, a 130 acre smart township in Devanahalli.

Inaugurated by Shri. R.V Deshpande, Hon’ble Minister of Industries and Infrastructure, along with Shri Pilla Munishamappa, MLA – Devanahalli; Signature Club Resort will be managed by Brigade Hospitality that is set to revolutionize the hospitality landscape in Bengaluru by introducing the ‘Club Resort’ concept to the city.

Inaugurating Signature Club Resort, Mr. Jaishankar, CMD Brigade Enterptrises Limited said  “Signature Club Resort (SCR) is located with 130 acres of township – Brigade Orchards, an integrated enclave which is soon going to be a smart township with 100 premium villa, about 3500 residential apartments, 160 senior residences. We have tie ups with great organizations to facilitate the various requirements like Help age India for the senior residences. We also have a sports stadium which is built on international standards and facilitates sports like Cricket, tennis, Olympic style pool etc.

Signature Club Resort has 45 well-appointed rooms to cater to requirements of people – in and around Bangalore as well as outstation guests. With its beautiful venues and lawns, it can also cater to various functions and events.

Besides all the facilities, Brigade Orchards also has 70+ acres of open spaces covered by lawns, parks and unique spaces like Equestrian park and dog park with professionally managed kennels. Being only 15 minutes away from the park makes this destination a home away from home. The international concept – Aerotropolis, which means a city is where the airport is located, is what we wish to adopt with this integrated enclave.

Brigade Orchards has been designed the finest architects. It’s a joint effort – with the NBBJ from Seattle behind the conceptualization with various other Indian architects. SCR has been designed by Ochre architects and is a project led by Brigade group and managed by Brigade Hospitality.”

Inaugurating Signature Club Resort Shri R V Deshpande, Minister for Industries and Infrastructure Developmentsaid “Brigade Orchards and Signature Club Resort is a good gift to Karnataka. We don’t identify and recognize Bangalore as a tourist destination, although the inflow of tourists in Bangalore has increased towards the city. But we have failed to identify Bangalore as a tourist destination as yet, so Brigade Orchards is a great job done by Mr. Jaishankar and friends. What is amazing is that out of 130 acre of land, only 50 acres has been utilized, the rest 80 acres is open spaces and greens. Bangalore was once called a garden city but due to infrastructure and growth, there has been certain deterioration of the greenery in Bangalore city. Hence, this place is a great destination for people in and around Bangalore too, especially for a short holiday during weekends. The sports facility here is also very impressive, as there is a sport for everyone – from chess and billiards to pool and tennis. There’s something for everybody. Jaishankar has indeed done a great job as far as infrastructure and tourism is concerned.”

Mr. Amar Mysore, VP, BCV Developers Pvt Ltd added that “I am glad that our hard work has borne fruit and we have launched Signature Club Resort, a high end club resort comprising of the finest banqueting and sports facilities along with abundant outdoor spaces. It is one of the finest resorts in Bangalore and has been designed around trees to bring about a seamless transition from the indoor to the outdoor. The Club Resort is part of a 130-acre development, Brigade Orchards which is en route to become Bangalore’s 1st Smart Township. The township will have close to 3500 homes, school, hospital, retail, and office spaces. The 6-acre Sports Arena has already played host to many children & corporates and we are glad to that 256 families are in the process of moving into the township as we speak. We are committed to our vision of making Brigade Orchards as one of the finest developments in India.”

“The purpose of allocating acres of prime space to recreational facilities goes in line with our philosophy of ‘creating a better quality of life’. By launching the Signature Club Resort, we aim to take the lifestyle membership club’s to the next level. Introducing the Club Resort concept to Bangalore within a 15 minute drive from the international airport will not only give travellers easy access to the finest services and facilities but also Bengalureans a getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life. Its state-of-the-art sports and leisure facilities will also delight our club members who will find this getaway ideal for gatherings or recreation.” said Mr. Vineet Verma, Executive Director, Brigade Hospitality.

Signature Club Resort promises patrons a “Green Carpet Experience” in the sprawling Brigade Orchards environs and is inspired by traditional Mangalorean homes.

Ushering in a new era in real estate

The real estate sector in India historically never had industry status, making it difficult for companies to have easy access to finances from banks and other institutions to fuel their projects. This invariably prevented companies from completing construction projects on time; a major disadvantage as consumers across India expect delivery of projects on schedule, be it commercial, residential or retail.

Year 2016 marks a new beginning for Asia’s third largest real estate sector; a 40 per cent increase marked private equity investment, at Rs 3840 crores as compared to the corresponding quarter last year, most of it being foreign investment, brought on by the relaxation in foreign direct investment norms for the construction sector. The news of this increase brought much cheer to the cash starved real estate developers across the country.

The first quarter of 2016 recorded a 35 per cent growth in foreign investment compared to the same previous last year. Foreign investment also accounted for around 64 per cent of the total investment made during the first quarter.

The total number of deals closed during the first quarter increased by 13 per cent to 17 per cent from 15 per cent in the corresponding quarter of 2015. The average deal size also increased by 23 per cent over the first quarter of 2015 to Rs 2.3 billion, according to Cushman & Wakefield latest report on ‘Private equity investments in Real Estate’. The first quarter of 2016 saw over 48 per cent share of total investment activity focused on the residential sector at Rs 1870 crore in investments.

The report also pointed to majority of investments during the quarter to be in the western region (38 per cent), followed closely by the South (36 per cent), and the North (26 per cent). The largest investment of the quarter in the form of structured debt of Rs 500 crore was noted in Mumbai by IIFL Group to Ariisto Realtors.

According to Om Ahuja, CEO, Residential at Brigade Group, the residential segment weighs over 80 per cent of share in terms of user demand and money circulation. “In the market where demand is catching up with supply, and developers are looking for equity and debt participation, PE players are finding good traction from developers who look at options that can help them bridge the gap,” he said.

Large foreign PE funds such as Blackstone, GIC and Xander to name a few have been diversifying their investment portfolio in India and have been increasing their exposure to retail, mixed-use and hospitality sectors apart from investing in commercial and residential sectors. With India being the only large economy in the world witnessing the highest GDP growth rate on the back of favourable macro-economic factors such as controlled inflation and declining interest rate regime, it is not surprising that the interest of foreign investors has increased in the country.

Speaking on the fund flow, Harish S N, director – operations at Vaishnavi Group added, “It would positively impact overall growth and help stabilize uncertain market sentiments. This will also bring in the much needed capital for completion of projects. Further, the equity format will help industry to stabilize.”

The structured debt strategy that is suited for investments in residential assets, offering high yield secured returns has contributed significantly to driving funds to be invested primarily in residential assets. This year recorded 8 per cent increase in investments made via the structured debt strategy compared to previous year, from 71 per cent to 79 per cent.

Observing the developments, Suresh Hari, Secretary, CREDAI, commented, “The increased inflow across all asset class is a sure indication of upswing in demand. Due to global slowdown and oil price slide, the flow had reduced couple of years back. Last year saw the trend reversing with increased inflow.

New launches across all classes are expected during second and third quarter of this year. Increases in absorption will enable stabilisation of price.”

“We are focusing on the Eco Model, an integration of software, content, services, applications and hardware.”

With a RAM three times that of the iPhone 6s Plus, Le Max2 (6G+64G) is 40% faster performance than most competitors’ models, and is also 17% faster than its predecessor, Le Max.

Le Max2 features a 5.7 inch 2K Super Retina Display, the best display for VR equipment.

Its 21MP rear camera comes with blazingly fast focusing speeds thanks to PDAF technology, it also has a F2.0 aperture with OIS for blur free images even in low light.The rear camera on Le Max2 shoots pictures with great clarity thanks to improved components or technologies like 6P lens, PDAF, Closed Loop, OIS, Dual HDR and Dual-tone flash and so on.

Le Max2 also enjoys a super-fast 802.11ac Wi-Fi connectivity. It has dual-band and dual-antenna, which means Le Max2’s Wi-Fi speeds are much 4 times faster than most of its competitors, who are on the Wi-Fi 2.4G band and twice as fast as those on the Wi-Fi 5G band.

To showcase the revolutionary CDLA technology, the song composed by the Jam8 studios was recorded on two devices, one with the existing Hi-Fi audio capability and the other with the CDLA technology. The difference was unparalleled and the music experience from the device with CDLA technology was premium and seamless.

With the launch of LeMall, its marketplace e-commerce website, the company has marked its venture into the e-commerce space in India.

Both Le 2 and the Le Max2 will be available on Flipkart and LeEco’s very own marketplace e-commerce website LeMall.com soon.

LeMall is an important step in establishing LeEco’s foot print in India. It will serve as the primary channel for customers to engage with LeEco and become a part of the ecosystem through the products and services.

Thousands View Live Demo, Webinar on PRP+ECM at Hairline International

Bangalore, June 8th, 2016: Thousands of medical professionals, students and prospective patients viewed a live demo and webinar on Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) + Extracellular Matrix (ECM) hair regrowth therapy that was conducted at Hair International Hair and Skin Clinic at their RT Nagar outlet. Under the capable hands of Dr. Dinesh Gowda, Dermatosurgeon, Hairline International, this procedure on a patient took close to 1.5 hours. Dr. Dinesh also dealt with questions that were asked.

Hairline International brings to its patients an internationally popular therapy form that is used extensively for the treatment of alopecia areata and as well as androgenetic. This is a treatment procedure that is usually prescribed on its own for a patient. In a few chronic cases of hair loss, it is also administered as a supplement to hair transplant surgery to improve on the results.

The RT Nagar outlet was packed with an eager audience and the online viewership was also impressive all through the demonstration.

“More and more patients are looking for minimally invasive procedures that enhances hair growth. PRP uses a patient’s own blood and the plasma that is obtained from it. This is injected into the scalp but is essentially originating from one’s own body making it an ideal means to enhance hair growth,” said Dr Dinesh Gowda.
