When Sultan Ahmed Shah established the city in 1411 on the eastern banks of the Sabarmati river he would not have had the slightest of a hint that his city would one day grow into a mega city having a population of a little under 50 lacs. But that is not all. Flanked by Gandhinagar in the north east and Vadodara in the south east, the GAV (Gandhinagar-Ahmedabad-Vadodara) Corridor, a densely populated industrial and commercial belt that is the pulse of the combined three cities and it is in this corridor that the Galaxy Group has poured so much of its love and concentration. With over twenty projects in the GAV corridor they are Galaxy Group gift to the people of Ahmedabad.

Ahmedabad means different things to different people and, in fact, this is true beauty of the city and its citizens. Yet the strands that bind them are all in the eastern part of the city. Take, for example, the Kalupur Railway Station or the Geeta Mandir Bus Stand, or – if you will – the Ahmedabad – Vadodara Expressway connecting the two major cities. Consider also the fact that Ahmedabad’s prominent industrial belt Vatva and Odhav are located here and you get a picture of what we are talking about.

After the tracks of Nava Naroda were thrown open for development, several prestigious real estate schemes have been announced and most of these are already in progress, resulting in a net investment of over RS 1000 crores. Reputed builders have purchased land and commenced diverse projects, from hospitals and educational institutions, to residential accommodation and hotels.

GAV CORRIDOR The Naroda GIDC industrial park houses many national and international companies, and has converted Naroda into a major industrial area. What’s attracting them is the potent combination of international connectivity, skilled manpower and open land that the three cities GAV corridor offer.

Ahmedabad is the state’s hub of industrial activity, Vadodara houses the state’s largest pool English speaking and skilled manpower, and Gandhinagar has ample green spaces for development. An increase in the number of companies indicates an increase in employment. A natural result of this is that employees would look for a place of residence that is in close proximity to their workplace. Keeping this in mind, the residential projects costing RS 15 lakh to RS 40 lakh targets the average middle-income group. Adding to its attractiveness as a place of residence is the fact that it is bang on S.P.Ring Road, just 8 km from the airport.
