10Gurgaon a city that has caught the imagination of people due toits high rises and towers has achieved another feature which will escalate its value in the eyes of future settlers. The governmenthas embarked upon the creation of 1000 Acres of green masterplan which when compared with the green areas of neighbouring Delhi is an ocean to the droplets of the Mughal Garden, the Lodi Gardens and the likes.10,000 trees have already been planted in the area. The 1000 acres of green masterplan is planned in and around Gardencity. The Green Belt extends from NH 8 to Pataudi Road, part of sector 91 and complete sector 94.

The air quality of gardencity is far better than that of the other areas of NCR. There have been allegations that being in the NCR and specifically in Guragaonit cannot have a better air quality that that of South and central Delhi. But then if one has proof one doesn’t quiver at allegations. DLF Gardencity stands true to its name and spirit and this is an established fact now. Recently a survey by Farelabs Private Ltd. found out that the carbon mono oxide levels of DLF Gardencity is far lower than the carbon monoxide level of two different spots in Delhi. What is more astonishing is that this comparison includes the one of the greenest area of Delhi i.e. the IIT Delhi area.

One of the residents of DLF Gardencity, Ms Radhika Ray, who has moved in recently thanked her stars for choosing it over other residencies. She said, “I look forward to coming back from work to enjoy the peace and solitude that my new home has to offer. Due to restricted traffic movement we have the opportunity to breathe fresh and dust-free air. I am glad that DLF has made the effort to plant lot of trees in addition to maintaining the parks so well. It’s truly a blessing to live in DLF’s Gardencity”.

The vast spaces in the green masterplan may be put to various use without disturbing the greenery of the area. Facilities which can come in this Green Belt are Sports Ground, Stadium, Play Ground, Parks, Water Bodies, Lakes, etc. New Town Heights are the delivered projects in Gardencity and every sector has an average of 5 acres of green patch. Out of the 14.35 acres of land of New Town Heights I, 5 acres land is under green cover this displays the sincerity of the developers.

Explaining the details of this endeavour Mr. Vikam O Datta, Vice President- Sales and Marketing, DLF said, “With a significant rise in pollution levels, NCR residents are experiencing a severe lack of fresh air. Our upcoming township ‘DLF Gardencity’ is being developed keeping in mind the current scenario. Located next to a 1000 acre green expanse, the Mega Township offers its residents a luxurious lifestyle in the lap of lush surroundings.” Mr. Datta further added, ‘to ensure a natural environment, trees, shrubs and ornamental foliage have also been planted. True to its name, ‘DLF Gardencity’ will allow residents to lead a healthier and better quality of life’.
