Bangalore will be pioneering the country’s first township according to the globally accepted norms of a green building. Spread over 120 acres at Electronics City, South Bangalore, this environment-friendly project — NeoTown is being executed by Patel Realty and is a new lifestyle suburb classified by distinct precincts, in Bangalore. Neotown is master planned with three Residential Precincts, a Business Precinct, a Tech-Icon Precinct, a Hospitality Precinct and a Town Centre Market Precinct comprising of a large mall, a family health clinic, a school and a creche.
Some of NeoTown’s features include an integrated rain-water harvesting system, sewage treatment plant, solid waste management, solar water heating, in-house nursery, and long-term tree planning. Over one lakh trees have been planted and will be nourished by fertilisers made from human waste generated at the township. The township will depend on Bescom for its power needs and will be largely self-sufficient for its water requirement and sewerage treatment. Using bio-enzymes imported from South Africa, soil collected from the project has been converted into hard bricks that have been used for building walls and roads. These bricks, in turn, allow rainwater to be harvested more effectively.
