Mumbai, Maharashtra, India
‘Devils Circuit’ (DC), positioned as one of India’s first and biggest obstacle running series, will be held on 21 February 2016 at Hiranandani Fortune City, Panvel. The event, launched in 2012, brings in a unique format by combining sports with entertainment. A typical ‘Devils Circuit’ edition includes running across a 5-kms long raw terrain interspersed with 15 military style obstacles. An individual based event, this is open for participation to both corporate as well as non-corporate enthusiasts.
“It is hosting of events like ‘Devils Circuit’ which will go a long way towards popularizing Panvel as a real estate location of choice,” said Niranjan Hiranandani, MD, Hiranandani Communities. “A real estate destination is not just about square feet of constructed space, we see it as creation of a community which is made up of residents and the activities that bring them together,” said Niranjan Hiranandani. It is this aspect, activities which bring people together, which comes to the fore while hosting events such as ‘Devils Circuit’, which is positioned as the ‘first-of-its-kind’ challenge that seeks out the ‘Fittest Corporate’ in the country. The event, which is open for teams as also individuals, is being organized for the first time this 21 February in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) at Panvel.
What makes the venue ideal for hosting the event? “It is the location,” said Niranjan Hiranandani. Panvel has the advantage of being central to the ‘golden triangle of possibilities’ – comprising the three locations of Panvel, Vashi and Alibaug. “Vashi is a growing business hub and Alibaug, a popular tourist attraction. Panvel is all set to get infrastructure-ready in the near future, and this golden triangle will offers a plethora of opportunities for business as well as leisure. The growing positive sentiment about commercial real estate in the Panvel region will get further enhanced in 2016, given that the Trans-Harbour Sealink will bring Panvel and its neighbouring areas closer to South Mumbai. This will make Panvel the ideal location for work spaces, back-end offices as also spaces for BFSI, IT and ITeS sectors – not to forget corporate relocating and consolidating office spaces,” he added.
Centrally located within the Panvel region, Hiranandani Fortune City is a mixed–use integrated township development, which includes the signature commercial real estate option, Hiranandani Business Park. What makes this ambitious dream project ideal for corporate consolidation and relocation are the location and the project specifications, which are a class apart. Hiranandani Business Park @ Hiranandani Fortune City, Panvel has the advantage of being located mid-way between two important IT hubs of the nation, Mumbai and Pune. Its energy efficient buildings will conform to LEED Green Building design principles, which will deliver to end-users the Hiranandani Communities’ commitment to high quality standards and cutting edge advantages.
The event, ‘Devils Circuit’ will showcase the aspect of being fit and healthy, and from that perspective, promote sports-related activities at the project. “At Hiranandani Fortune City, Panvel, we have planned ‘community living’. It will go beyond the aspect of home owners merely being neighbours,” says Niranjan Hiranandani. “It will be being part of something larger – a community comprising residents of a township who will share a very special relationship with being fit, with each other and with nature. I co-relate community living with being close to nature. At the integrated townships we have created in Mumbai’s Powai and in Thane, we have created living spaces amidst greenery, and not merely include greenery in living spaces. The same is being replicated in Hiranandani Fortune City, Panvel,” he added. “It will be a very different lifestyle which will be enjoyed by residents who will live within the community, and share the experience called life – much like the experience of participating in the ‘Devils Circuit’,” he said.
Hiranandani Fortune City, Panvel offers discerning home seekers homes that are intelligently planned, crafted with precision and embellished with care. The aspect of community living will fulfill the dreams of many, giving rise to a new perception of life and life style. It will be similar to Hiranandani Meadows and Hiranandani Estate townships in Thane, where futuristic technology has been leveraged with innovative design and precision engineering to create a world-class real estate complex.
“Events like ‘Devils Circuit’ make life interesting; these are the different aspects which re-define ‘Community Living’,” said Niranjan Hiranandani. “Hiranandani Fortune City, Panvel will be an apt example of a green, mixed-use township with the Hiranandani Business Park (HBP) and an SEZ driving its economic growth. While setting the ‘benchmark’, the township will go on to become a ‘landmark’ of ‘community living’,” he concluded.
