As one meanders through the busy bustling roads of Udyog Vihar commercial hub in Phase 4, one really can’t miss the imposing terracotta cladded edifice with its imposing presence around the corner. The address neighborhood has found its landmark in the form of 505, Udyog Vihar called Konterra.
Located at a prominent location of Udyog Vihar at the gateway of Gurgaon near the bygone toll plaza off NH-8, Konterra is at a stone throw distance from Indira Gandhi International Airport – IGI Airport, with just a mere 10 minutes from the airport. That’s a perfect location for the travelling working professionals in Konterra to enjoy a sweet ride where their not-so-blessed compatriots are struggling to get to the airport from other locations. It can veritably be garlanded as the best location in Udyog Vihar, easily accessible from NH-8. Flanked by NH-8 and the Old Delhi Gurgaon Road, Konterra’s residents enjoy a twin commutable spine which otherwise is a terrific boon to already road strapped users in Gurugram.

Development of a district
Historic buildings in front of Bonn’s main station were demolished as part of the city railway restructuring in the 1970s. The redevelopment of this area, which has only been implemented in part since, still represents a sensitive break in the city fabric between the main station and the old town; as an inner-city problem zone called “Bonner Loch”, it still shapes the first impressions of people arriving by train. After more than 45 years, the “Urban Soul” project now provides the first opportunity to activate the unused potentials of the location with an approach inspired by the spirit of the “genius loci”.
