Zenith Residences is the very first offering of the Karle Town Centre and is located in Located in Nagavara, Bengaluru. Embracing a new level of luxury living, Zenith is ideally located and within proximity of some of the cities’ best facilities. Facilities at this property include a Yoga and meditation lawn, club house, gymnasium and swimming pool. The entirety of space in homes at the Zenith Residence, from the bedroom to the bathroom, is designed with attention to the smallest detail. The concept of a harmonious living with nature is embraced with the provision of a natural environment to residents.
At ‘Karle Town Centre’, office spaces have been designed keeping the user at the centre, where the belief is ‘a free mind is a productive mind’. This is important as employee needs are met with lower stress levels and consequently they are found to be highly productive at work. The result is, once fully built, this campus will play host to over 45000 motivated, loyal work force.
The first phase of office buildings comprises of two eleven storied buildings namely HUB 1 & HUB 2, summing up to one million sq. ft of leasable space with the typical office floor plate being about 40,000 sq. ft. Each office floor has a central core area which houses the Elevators, Stairways, MEP, BoH areas and other services. None of the building services extend into tenant areas thereby offering the tenants high fidelity in setting up their office interiors. Design of these floors enable easy divisibility into two separate tenants considering the average offtake of office spaces within SEZs being not less than 20,000 sq. ft. For smaller tenants, plug & play incubation areas are made available. In designing the central core, the width to depth ratio of the floor plates have been delicately balanced to ensure maximum daylight penetration thereby improving the indoor work environment.
Façade of these office buildings feature a built in geometric extrusion which acts as a sun-shading device which in turn reduces the incident heat gain and regulates glare within the workspace. This is a critical factor to ensure user comfort by reducing optical strain while working on reflective digital screens / monitors. The entire Ground Floor of all offices buildings are treated as an inviting social space and is conceived as a plush lobby with F&B services. The idea was to provide the occupant multiple avenues for social engagement and also to create a pride of ownership while at office. Buildings are interconnected at the ground floor by ‘The Street’, a miniature concept of high-street dining along with easy-reach-facilities.
Apart from functional space planning, the buildings boast of Destination-control-elevators; Solar power generation roof; Occupancy based HVAC system; Integrated firefighting & safety systems; Sensor based building services monitoring & maintenance system etc.
HUB 1 & HUB 2 comprises of 3 Basements + Ground + 11 Floors and has a Double Height Atrium and is currently occupied by multi-national companies like: Diageo, Epsilon, Resource Pro, Arcadis, Concentrix, Rocket Software, HCL, Dufry, Anvizent, Xylem and Clairvolex.
