With a view to contribute positively towards the society, Tata Housing Development Company Limited pioneered sustainable green developments in India at a time when such concept has just picked up pace in the west. It has been one of the biggest proponents of green initiatives in the Indian real estate space under the guidelines of Indian Green Building Council (IGBC). The company’s first green development executed under this motto is Xylem, which is also Bengaluru’s first LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environment Design) Gold-certified green IT Park. The design boosts employee productivity as well as helps reduce the operational cost of the building. This is one of the most environmentally friendly buildings of its size in the entire country.
Tata Housing’s recently launched Myst is India’s first residential development designed using biophilic architecture, a design ethos that integrates nature and architecture to create living spaces that are invigorating and comforting. Myst’s unique design incorporates natural elements like flowing water, green roofs, and airy open living spaces to reconnect residents to nature. It’s an approach that brings residents closer to the pristine nature of the Kasauli hills, while presenting them with every luxury. The company’s other properties such as Aquila Heights, the tallest residential development in Bengaluru and Raisina Residency in Gurgaon are also IGBC gold certified green developments, while the company’s premium luxury villas – Prive at Lonavala are platinum rated by IGBC.
As on today, Tata Housing is developing over 44 million sq. ft., which is under various stages of developments, all built under the guidelines drawn by IGBC. Tata Housing aims to provide customers a whole-building approach in all key areas of human and environmental health with natural ventilation and illumination, designed to work with the exterior environment. These advanced standards optimize comfort and utility thereby contributing to an excellent living and working lifestyle.
