The project was launched with the unveiling of the unique ‘Metrozone Dome’ by Deepak Parekh, chairman, HDFC, in the presence of S Vasudevan, MD, Ozonegroup and other dignitaries. ‘The Metrozone’ is being developed as a self contained township with 1,600+ residential units across 29 towers (25 towers in first phase) of G+16 structure and 1.2 million square feet of commercial complex including a mall, multiplex and office space.
A swanky star hotel within the complex will bring more convenience to both the home and commercial residents. ‘The Metrozone’ has many firsts to its credit, including the largest car park in India with over 6,000 capacity in 3 basement levels and the largest private piped gas network.
According to Sudarshan KS, COO, Ozonegroup, “Utmost care has been taken in the design of the units in ‘The Metrozone’. To enhance quality of construction, Ozonegroup will be adopting concrete wall design using metal formwork. Significant research has been done in other aspects of construction including internal and external finishes, water treatment, waste/garbage collection and treatment/disposal.
All units in ‘The Metrozone’ come with pre-conduiting for air-conditioning units. Our key differentiator is in providing abundant infrastructure and addressing the most important needs of the residents – water, electricity, parking and security to name a few. Ozonegroup is investing significantly to make all projects environment friendly, with rain water harvesting, solar/heating and lighting, waste optimization and other eco friendly features”
