Techies, good news! MK Stalin, the chief minister of Tamil Nadu, recently announced plans to build a new airport at Hosur, which could help Bengaluru’s Electronic City. 

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin recently announced the construction of a new airport in the border city of Hosur, located 40 km from Bengaluru and only 25 km from the city’s tech hub, Electronic City. This development is good news for Bengaluru’s IT professionals, especially those who have made their home in the southern part of Electronic City.

Bellandur offers a good selection of contemporary apartments and gated communities, with projects from prominent real estate companies like Prestige Estates, the Embassy Group, and Sobha Ltd. The region also benefits from the presence of multiple coliving brands.

According to NoBroker data, the average rental price of a two-bedroom apartment in Bellandur is currently Rs 40,000. According to local brokers, rents in this area have increased by 20% in the last 12 months. They attributed the sharp rise to a shortage of land parcels and a supply constraint.
