DLF Garden City Chennai -Specifications we can anticipate

I just was amazed at the features offered by DLF for their other projects. While Chennai is projected to be low priced but feature rich, these are some of the features which we can expect from them. If they happen to give these features then DLF Garden city would be run away hit and is likely to get sold out with in a short time. Garden city boost a host of features and if they happen to include features like Power back up, imported marble etc etc, then it would just give the developers in OMR a run for their money.
 

Some terms which i liked with DLF but not sure if would be extended for Chennai

  • DLF would pay 5 per sq ft as rent /month if the project is delayed beyond said handover dates
  • DLF would pay 11% interest in case you paid them upfront.
  •

      Hey Guys,

      I am just travelling to Chennai in couple of days n wud b taking my days out to check out some apartments. I would like to know projects which offer 3 bedroom apartments at the cost of 35 lakhs or so…

      One more thing, I am having a 800 sq ft apartment in T.Nagar (Near Ranganathan Street).. its about 25 years old but is a solid flat… any guesses on how much i can sell it for???

      As per DLF 60% flats have been booked in soft launch.they plan to officially launch on Month end & they are exoexting 100% booking before that (at least low end ones)

      Do not how much we can believe this data!

      I have heard that this location is very close to Tsunami rehab apartments /HUDCO slum clearance board tenements. Please be careful before you book your “premium” apartments.

      DLF is not all rosy.

      I do not know how the above spec is floating around. My direct inquires revealed, floor tiling is rectified which is far below in quality to vitrified. On pressing, reason given is vitrified tiling is for public usage (where lots of people stamp their feet) and rectified perfectly suits private space at affordable cost. Worse, you can not order change in DLF plans !

      Second, if you have Window AC, throw it. In DLF, you are allowed to use only Split AC. There will be provision for it off course.

      Third, they hired one literal contractor named Hafeez Contractor based in Bombay i suppose. His taste and sensibilities are not suited to Chennai. You can witness it in the floor plan. Your flat main door stares into kitchen.

      Fourth, internal layouting is also optimized for DLF and not for you. You have three bed rooms in a row. I heard of row houses but row rooms, news. This contractor needs a kick in the ar**. Simple no degree contractor in my native place does a better job.

      Fifth, do not gloat over PSBB. Strings attached. You have to shell out a lot of money to be in. Off course you will be called first to pay for it. You have to sit through PSBB selection criteria but may not stand through queues. I heard KK Nagar PSBB queue was one km long. What a fight to make your kid a clone.

      Sixth, DLF owns more property inside then you imagine. Your undivided does not include Club, Mall, School, Botanical/Forest land etc etc.

      Seventh, there is deadly silence on maintenance from DLF itself. There are only few guesses floating around.

      Eighth, mini hospital is a nice blog go gaga over stuff. But its management Fortis is pucca corporate. Visiting doctors are going to make you pay through your nose. Apollo experiences pale into insignificance before this Fortis juggernaut. Folks in chennai are not aware of Fortis from Delhi. Their job is to take over hospitals and brand them.

      I am not a scarecrow. Its a good deal. DLF is One up and gave a black eye to prevailing building mafia in chennai. But know all aspects, especially what you do not know.

      Thanks

    5. Whr is this place located in Chennai dude?

      Folks,

      There is a Google Group actively advocating the cause of folks who have registered for DLF Garden City. There are lots of valuable suggestions from the group to the DLF management on things going on. Those who are into this project, please join the group.

      Has the DLF gardencity project started? I saw some reviews on forums that they are delayed big time and not all approvals are in place. When are they planning to deliver you the flat?
