Flora Foun­tain brings na­ture and city life to­gether to make a ‘Na­tureo-Ur­ban’ de­sign.

Spread across four-acres with sprawl­ing green land­scape, Flora Foun­tain com­prises twin tow­ers de­signed to pro­vide state-of-the-art life­style along­side re­fresh­ing water-bod­ies adorned with flow­ing foun­tains, which em­anate a sense of re­ju­ve­na­tion. the pro­ject is a joint en­deav­our of al­cove Realty, PS Group & Shyam In­fra – Flora Foun­tain has been de­signed by Raj agar­wal and his team.

Adding in­sight on the con­cept and de­sign, amar­nath Shroff, manag­ing direc­tor of Al­cove realty adds, “City life al­lures us, yet we yearn to co-ex­ist with na­ture and at the same time, we also want to avail of all the ameni­ties es­sen­tial to mod­ern life­style. flora foun­tain is the an­swer, we have pack­aged both the ameni­ties and nat­u­ral sur­round­ings into one. nes­tled in na­ture’s arm and equipped with all nec­es­sary ameni­ties that are a part of the con­tem­po­rary ur­ban life­style, at flora foun­tain, one gets to em­brace an en­chanted life and re­dis­cover the sim­ple joys of liv­ing where hap­pi­ness flows!”

Lo­cated at Christo­pher Road in Top­sia, Flora Foun­tain has a Gold Rated (Pre-cer­ti­fied) Green Build­ing cer­ti­fi­ca­tion. It is a res­i­den­tial pro­ject, which com­prises G+24 storeyed twin tow­ers. It of­fers a wide choice of 2 BHK, 3 BHK & 4 BHK apart­ments rang­ing from 899 sq. ft. to 1,882 sq. ft. (su­per built-up area) across 336 units start­ing from the fourth floor. The best part of the de­sign is that all the apart­ments have 3 to 4 sides open, which are ei­ther south-fac­ing or a wa­ter­body-fac­ing. each and ev­ery apart­ment en­joys a panoramic view of flora and foun­tain. The apart­ments come with pri­vate open ter­races at cer­tain lev­els, along with stor­age/ser­vant’s quar­ter spa­ces each mea­sur­ing 100 sq.ft. there are two land­scaped water bod­ies decked with or­nate foun­tains and light­ings, view­ing deck and plaza. it has state-of-the-art se­cu­rity ar­range­ments, in­clud­ing many fa­cil­i­ties like 24x7 CCTV sur­veil­lance and au­dio-vis­ual in­ter­com sys­tem. it has a 24x7 power back-up, dth con­nec­tion through cen­tral­ized sys­tem, Wi-fi in club ar­eas and pro­vi­sion for in­ter­net, laun­dry fa­cil­ity etc.

Care­ful about their car­bon foot­print, the devel­op­ers have made a pro­vi­sion for rain water har­vest­ing, so­lar pow­ered light­ing and other fea­tures in the com­mon ar­eas, water fil­tra­tion plant, and seweage treat­ment plant. It has car park­ing across three lev­els (Ground, 1st & 2nd) along with visi­tors’ Car Park­ing Spa­ces.

The mag­nif­i­cent high-rise, comes with a de­signer land­scape, along with life­style and recre­ational fa­cil­i­ties. Agar­wal and his team en­sured plenty of wide open spa­ces and beau­ti­fully land­scaped ar­eas to en­hance the fea­tures of the home of its res­i­dents, while cre­at­ing pri­vacy and elim­i­nat­ing the mul­ti­tude of neigh­bour­hood chaos. the haven of­fers green­ery in abun­dance and nat­u­ral liv­ing con­di­tions con­ducive to fine liv­ing.

the twin tow­ers are joined up to the third level by a land­scaped open-to-sky podium, ac­com­mo­dat­ing nu­mer­ous club and other fa­cil­i­ties. This area, spread over 56,000 sq. ft. and two-floors high, is ded­i­cated solely to recre­ation and leisure.

the club of­fers ex­cep­tional fa­cil­i­ties and ameni­ties avail­able both in­doors and out­doors. the swim­ming pool area spread over 8,000 sq. ft. in­cludes the main pool, lounge pool, fam­ily pool, kids’ pool and tod­dlers’ pool with pool deck, chang­ing rooms and locker fa­cil­ity.

the res­i­dents also have ac­cess to two AC com­mu­nity halls with a party lawn and kitchen fa­cil­ity, mul­tipur­pose court, well-equipped AC in­door gym, out­door gym and jog­ging track, AC lounge space, med­i­ta­tion and yoga hall, AC in­door games room, home the­ater and TV arena, kids zone and crèche space, li­brary and se­nior cit­i­zen’s sit­ting room and steam, sauna and jacuzzi.

“the best land­scape de­signs are as much a science as much they are a work of art. While land­scapes look any­thing but sci­en­tific, they are care­fully en­gi­neered and crafted to cre­ate a sense of a “feel good fac­tor”. Flora foun­tain is an ur­ban oa­sis, where green­ery dom­i­nates one’s senses. the open-to-sky ar­eas will be ex­ten­sively land­scaped with a va­ri­ety of lawns, flower gar­dens and plan­ta­tions, pools, flo­ral trel­lis, in­ter­ac­tive foun­tains, sculp­tures, ter­race lounges, walk­ways, pav­il­ions, sit­ting ar­eas, multi-pur­pose court, well-equipped out­door chil­dren’s play area and out­door gym and yoga deck,” says Shroff. the com­mon open spa­ces on the ground level will have ex­ten­sive land­scap­ing as well. “fo­cus is laid on tex­ture and sub­tle hues lend­ing it a calm­ing and peace­ful place to be in. it en­gages all the senses and pro­vokes an emo­tional re­sponse through the de­sign el­e­ments in each passer-by–it is med­i­ta­tive, im­mer­sive, dra­matic or a com­bi­na­tion of all.” Seems like this is peace­ful place to live in style….
