How do you wake up in the morning? Amidst the chirping of birds or amidst the loud honking of vehicles? What do you see outside your window? Lush greenery and clear skies or dusty smog covered roads? If you live in Bangalore there are more chances of you living in an area which is always crowded with never ending traffic. Whether you stay in the Central Business District or the SBDs every locality has the same story. This is one of main reasons for the ever increasing population of the city to move in the suburbs and surrounding areas.
I discovered one such budding area in the suburbs last weekend when I was invited by Prestige Constructions to have a look and review their latest luxury property Prestige Glenwood at Budigere Cross, off Old Madras Road.
Prestige Glenwood is a Luxury Villa Property spread across 15 acres of land with 116 ready-to-move-in 4BHK and 3BHK villas and twin houses. As on date 55 of these beautiful villas have already been sold or are occupied.
This was my first visit to Budigere. Initially, I felt it would be too far off, but surprisingly it was a 40 minutes’ drive from Indiranagar. The KR Puram-Old Madras Road stretch is a busy and bustling area. The property is about 20 Km from MG Road and most of the IT Parks lie in within a 10-20 km radius. The 6 lane highway that connects KR Puram with Hoskote is a fast moving signal free road that makes connectivity to Budigere very easy.
Connectivity to Whitefield, one of Bangalore’s premium hotspot these days is easy from Budigere. You can reach via KR Puram or the Kadugodi road. The Kempegowda International Airport is about 20 Km from Prestige Glenwood. Devanahalli stretch has become a buzz in recent times with fast lane highways and upcoming SEZ. The two lane road that connects Budigere Cross to the airport is getting a facelift and becoming a four lane highway in another 18 months time.
With companies like Cipla and Siemens at stone throw distance and the adjacent New Baldwin International School Prestige Glenwood is away from the city yet closer to everything you need.

As with any new budding area in a big city, it requires little time to become the next hotspot. This has been true with most of the current posh suburb areas in Bangalore.
- The ORR-Hoskote belt is an industrial belt – you can expect more SEZ, office spaces coming up in future
- The road towards international airport is soon going to be a 4 lane highway making connectivity with Devanahalli and adjoining areas easy.
- Budigere currently is under BMRDA and not BBMP
- The water supply source is borewell water – water situation in Bangalore is anyways pretty sad
- While the roads are good, the public transport isn’t. Without your own vehicle commute can be difficult
- Not too many retail spaces around as yet
- The closest hospitals are in Whitefield
That makes Prestige Glenwoods a luxurious living space. If you are looking to invest in a second home or a holiday home a little away from all the crowd in the city amidst the laps of nature yet not too far away, this property just fits the bill. If you are working in Whitefield and adjoining areas and don’t want to stay in the crowded neighborhood of Whitefield you can look towards Prestige Glenwood.
