Parks and Gardens
Outdoor spaces are as important as the interiors of an apartment or commercial premises. Every individual desires open space with lots of greenery. We at K. Raheja Realty grace all our projects with greenery and sustainability, as we believe that parks and green areas, as well as open spaces, improve our physical and psychological health, strengthen our communities, and make our cities and neighborhoods more beautiful places to live and work.
Other than beautification, parks in a housing project have various benefits, such as
- Trees and plants help to reduce the urban heat
- They serve as the center of community activities, socializing
- They provide play areas to children and families
- They help to purify the air
- Green areas are natural relaxants and help reduce anxiety
- They provide natural space for outdoor activities like exercise, yoga, jogging, and cycling.
Many studies have shown that parks and open spaces increase the value of residential property. Growing evidence points to a similar benefit on commercial property value also.
Sheila Raheja Udyan and the Matoshri Ramai Bhimrao Ambedkar Udyan Landscape are two of the initiatives of K. Raheja Realty, wherein we use lots of native plants, organic compost, and recycling bins to promote sustainable real estate development in all our projects.
Sewage Treatment Plant
Waste Water Management is one of the most important features of a residential complex. With rapid urbanization, the need for fresh water is a growing concern, with not many resources to meet the need. Therefore, water must be utilized and optimized sustainably. It has been noticed that almost 75% of the water that is utilized for domestic purposes comes out as wastewater. If left untreated, this results in water pollution. We at K. Raheja Realty ensure this by harnessing a multi-disciplinary approach to optimize water utilization recycling.
The K. Raheja Realty has adopted the most innovative and evolving technologies of STP (Sewage Treatment Plant) to constantly monitor and improve the environmental indicators to treat the wastewater and make it reusable for flushing toilets, watering plants, and other non-potable purposes.
Sewage Treatment Plant not only saves water by making it eligible for reuse but also stops pollution and damage caused when wastewater is directly released into the environment. STPs are the best bet for sustainable real estate development in the future.
Rain Water Harvesting
Water is one of the most precious natural resources, and rainwater is one of the best ways nature replenishes it year after year. But the water crisis is becoming a serious issue both at the national and global levels, and in cities like Mumbai, it has reached a flash point. Thus, rather than wasting water, we must take measures wisely to conserve water. Rainwater harvesting is a process of collecting, storing, and filtering rainwater in natural reservoirs and tanks to meet many residential and industrial needs. Not only does this revive the groundwater level, but it also helps in saving electricity/ energy being consumed by submersible pumps to provide daily water supply.
K. Raheja Realty has steadfastly innovated, integrated, and implemented the sustainable solution of rainwater harvesting to minimize the demand for water supply in all its projects. This has incrementally lowered the usage of the main water supply from the municipal corporation leading to a significant reduction in local water supply problems and energy usage for water treatment and transportation.
Water Bottling Plant
With a commitment towards sustainable real estate development, the K. Raheja Realty has constantly been innovating, participating, and promoting initiatives that foster sustainability in the future. Conrad, Pune, one of the prestigious luxury hotel ventures of K. Raheja Realty, has proudly initiated a first in the city by installing an in-house water bottling plant on its premises. This is an endeavor to reduce its carbon footprint and eliminate single-use plastic bottles.
Sourcing and Supporting Local Farmers
The Conrad, Pune, a group venture of K. Raheja Realty, proudly supports sourcing the vegetables and fruits used by it from local farmers. It also has its in-house produce using selected food waste and organic compost from the hotel.
