Historically, Ahmedabad has served as the economic, industrial, and educational hub of India. It has developed a high-level infrastructure that attracts talent from across the country. With a rapidly growing population and an investor-driven market, the real estate market has gained a lot of traction and has turned into one driven by end-users, homebuyers.
Ahmedabad is divided by the Sabarmati into two physically distinct eastern and western regions.
The eastern part
The eastern bank of the river houses the old city, which includes the central town of Bhadra. This part of Ahmedabad is characterized by packed bazaars, the pol system of closely clustered buildings, and numerous places of worship. The colonial period saw the expansion of the city to the western side of Sabarmati, facilitated by the construction of Ellis Bridge in 1875 and later the relatively modern Nehru Bridge.
The western part
The western part of the city houses educational institutions, modern buildings, residential areas, shopping malls, multiplexes and new business districts centered around roads such as Ashram Road, C. G. Road and Sarkhej-Gandhinagar Highway.
Many modern architectural buildings have started emerging in the western part of Ahmedabad. This includes IIM Ahmedabad, CEPT, Sanskar Kendra, Tagore Memorial Hall, Amdavad ni Gufa, Gandhi Ashram, ATIRA, & gardens like Law Garden, Victoria Garden and Bal Vatika.
Several of the well-known developers like HN Safal, Bakeri Group, Adani Group, Pacifica Group, and Arvind Smartspaces are contributing to the growth of Ahmedabad city, especially in its Western part. In Western Ahmedabad, Bopal, South Bopal, Ghuma, Shilaj, and Godhavi are a few areas that are experiencing booms in both residential and commercial projects.
Ahmedabad hosts some of the most prominent shopping centers and quality educational facilities. Development in the Western Ahmedabad region has led to a change in the city’s real estate market.
