Infinity Group launched Infinity Heights — a Rs 100-crore luxury estate project and the first “green home” in eastern India — at Kalapahar in Guwahati on Sunday.

The second major project of the group in Guwahati happens to be the first green residential resort in eastern India.

There has been a demand for luxury apartments in Guwahati and the sector is growing fast. The luxury home market size in the city, the gateway to the Northeast, is pegged at over Rs 1,500 crore, with players such as Infinity, Subham, Protech, Sun Syndicate making their presence felt over the past decade.

“Infinity Heights is a unique luxury estate, nestled in the lap of nature, 315 feet above sea level. This is our second project in the city. The idea behind this Rs 100-crore project is to provide quality life within the city, yet away from the city centre. We have kept about 78 per cent of the land open to provide space for children to play and to allow a better view from the wide double-height balconies,” Pula Chamaria, executive director, Infinity Infotech Parks Limited, said at the launch of the project on Sunday.

The USP of the “green resort” is that it will save the residents 30 per cent in water and power bills. “We will soon be an Indian Green Building Council certified gold-rated green building. So, there will be a saving of about 30 per cent in power and water bills. More importantly, the indoor air quality will be good and provide the residents a healthy lifestyle. Besides, there will be provisions for rainwater harvesting and a sanitation system,” he added.

The project, akin to a seven-star facility, is expected to be complete within 2014.

Surrounded by hills, the five-building Infinity Heights promises security to the residents as well. “The luxury estate is inaccessible from three sides as it is surrounded by hills, while on the other you have a gated community. High surveillance closed-circuit cameras will be strategically placed as well. Hence, it is one of the most naturally secured places in Guwahati,” Chamaria said.

The facility will have a 10,000 square foot clubhouse with an air-conditioned community hall, gymnasium with spa, pool, billiards and snooker tables, library, swimming pool, table tennis table and a multi-purpose room. “Apart from the clubhouse, there will be a common laundromat, guest rooms, crèche, video- door phone, servant room for each apartment and uninterrupted bandwidth, among others. Besides, the indoor space has been meticulously articulated with a central landscaped garden,” the executive director said.

“We hope a good response from this venture as the response to Signature Estates so far has been very satisfactory,” he said.

The group will soon launch Guwahati’s first IT park at Madhgharia and a mass housing complex at Dharapur on the outskirts of the city.
