Imagine a stellar, scintillating mix of chic restaurants, sprawling malls, beautiful art galleries and renowned museums, just a stone’s throw away from where you live. Picture walking to your workplace in the mornings inhaling the crisp dewy air, and walking back at dusk absorbing the twinkling city lights as they sparkle against the purple sky. In Bangalore’s latest cosmopolitan hub, Whitefield, that’s possible.
Whitefield began buzzing around the 1990s, when the IT boom was at its best. Home to some of the finest technology parks in the city, Whitefield has seen phenomenal growth in the last two decades, with reputed schools, internationally acclaimed hospitals, five star hotels and premium malls burgeoning all around. With the second phase of the Namma Metro project covering 13 stations from Byappanahalli to Whitefield, the infamous traffic situation that Bangalore was typically known for should also improve. What was once considered an upcountry suburb of Bangalore is now setting trends for the rest of the city to follow. In fact, most flea markets, performances and concerts that are being held in the city are now being organised in Whitefield and surrounding areas because of the space availability and the fact that the catchment area is ideal.
