Hiya, Pune people! As a city, we’re known to enjoy fine music concerts; it’s so much a part of our artsy culture! So, here’s something lovely that took place recently, which spread so much joy amongst so many Punekars!
Pune-based real estate developer and award-winning creator of premium residential and commercial projects in Pune and Goa, Gera Developments, on December 20, 2019, Friday, held the foundation-laying ceremony of its newest ChildCentric® Homes project, Gera’s World of Joy Upper Kharadi.
The idea behind the project is to ensure safety, development and most importantly, fun for children. Pune’s demands for such projects have witnessed a sharp spike from families, and we’d say it’s about time!
The beloved Padma Shri Shankar Mahadevan – Indian Singer and Composer, Mr. Kumar Gera – Chairman and Mr. Rohit Gera – Managing Director, Gera Developments, alongside other prominent dignitaries flagged off the first pour of concrete at the Gera’s World of Joy site.
The foundation-laying was celebrated with a fabulous private concert by the Indian musical trio, Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy.
“It gives me immense pleasure to work closely with Gera Developments for their ChildCentric® Homes projects. In the last five years of the Shankar Mahadevan Academy’s partnership with them, we have resonated with and witnessed their conscious effort towards developing and integrating facilities that support the growing needs of working parents, vis-à-vis their child’s development, said Shankar Mahadevan, while sharing his experience of being associated with Gera’s ChildCentric® Homes.
Spread over 20 acres, Gera’s World of Joy features a range of apartments and amenities, some of which include 2- & 3-Bedroom Duplexes, Bedroom Apartments, Bedroom Row Houses and Studios. The first phase of the project contains 900+ apartments. The clubhouses are spread over 40,000 square feet.
There are indoor climate-controlled half Olympic length swimming pool, badminton and squash courts, a gymnastics’ hall as well as a dance and art studios and gaming rooms. The outdoor areas house the tennis courts and other outdoor facilities.
This residential development project was launched with an intent to empower parents to provide best-in-class opportunities to their kids in the field of sports, cognitive development, music, arts, drama, and recreation by partnering with some of the most eminent personalities of India.
Along with Shri Shankar Mahadevan, Gera has tied up with Mahesh Bhupathi for Tennis, Anil Kumble for Cricket, Bhaichung Bhutia for Football, Pullela Gopichand for Badminton, Dipa Karmarkar for Gymnastics, Shiamak Davar for Dance, the Dale Carnegie Training Institute for Personal Development and Michael Phelps Swimming Academy.
They’re equipped to provide the best intellectual, physical, and vocational training within the premises of the housing project. Holistic family living, and child-centricity are the main pillars of its development philosophy, and are at the core of the project’s design.
While talking about Gera’s World of Joy, the Managing Director, Mr. Rohit Gera said, “Through this project and our ChildCentric® Homes, we are ensuring that children get the best exposure, training, and opportunities to learn and pursue their talents under the guidance of the industry’s best experts, with whom, we have partnered to offer coaching.
The Punekar team is so thrilled to have witnessed this concert and the beginning of a wonderful and much-needed project in Pune!
