Gera Developments, a real estate company known for its premium residential and commercial projects in Pune, Goa, Bengaluru, and California, has received the ‘Gold’ pre-certification from the Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) Green Homes for its highly popular ChildCentric® Homes, Gera’s Planet of Joy. The project, which was launched in December 2021, has already become Upper Kharadi’s fastest-selling project, with more than 90% of inventory being sold in less than 10 months.
The recognition from the IGBC is a testament to Gera’s commitment to sustainable development. The project has been designed according to IGBC standards, with a focus on integrating sustainable practices and solutions to mitigate the environmental impact of real estate construction. The project features several sustainable initiatives, such as the usage of low-flow fixtures for flushing, implementation of drip irrigation, facility for rainwater harvesting, adoption of solar photo voltaic panels, and covering 15% of the land with plantations.
The project has also leveraged 30% of the floor area of the apartment as windows to facilitate better ventilation and natural light for the well-being of dwellers. Apartments and common rooms are equipped with LEDs and low-energy consumption fixtures, while high-efficiency motors and low-loss transformers contribute to reducing and tracking energy consumption.
Rohit Gera, Managing Director of Gera Developments, expressed his excitement over the ‘Gold’ recognition and stated that it reinforces the company’s commitment to conserving energy and natural resources through cutting-edge infrastructure and meticulously strategized project designs. Gera’s Planet of Joy is the third ChildCentric® Homes project in Pune and the fourth in India. Spread across 16 acres of land, it offers world-class amenities such as 9 celebrity-led training academies, 6 clubhouses, a wave pool, a multipurpose court, an amphitheatre, a herb garden, an art room, creche facilities, geo-fencing, cycling track, rock climbing wall, and much more.
