Beyond your city – The talking point – Talegaon
Talegaon’s journey from being a second home destination to a prime residential hub is noteworthy.
Located around 40 kilometres from Pune, Talegaon was an erstwhile second home destination, thanks to its scenic beauty. However, in the last couple of years, it has emerged as a prime residential hub.
The area gradually started witnessing growth with state-of-art amenities at reasonable rates. Today, it boasts of an array of projects from bungalows and townships to affordable housing.
The place is not only easily accessible via the Mumbai-Pune Expressway but is also connected via railway with Pune Lonavala locals plying hourly. It is at a 20-minute distance from Hinjewadi, the IT hub, hence making it a preferred destination.
Because of its proximity to Mumbai, several multinational companies have set up their base in the area. Overall, the area has sound civic infrastructure with good hotels, hospitals, schools and retail outlets opening up. Among the growth drivers are the industrial belt of Chakan and the automobile manufacturing units in the surrounding areas that have led to a large number of migrant population settling down at Talegaon.
Talegaon has predominantly been promoted as an industrial micro-market by Maharashtra government and MIDC and is home to various manufacturing and automobile companies. Along with the area’s growth, the last decade has witnessed a reasonable appreciation in Talegaon’s realty rates.
