Whitefield as Industrial & Real Estate Hub
Whitefield forms the essential part of Bengaluru, Karnataka. It was named after DS White, founder of the Eurasian and Anglo Indian Association of Former Madras. The area has been built in concentric circles, with the Innermost circle facing the greens and the Outer circle encircling the Inner one. But according to the original plan, there had to have been a third middle circle, but due to water scarcity in those days, that plan was dropped and only two circles, the Inner circle and Outer circle was built. In Olden days, Whitefield being located much farther in the city, people came here in search of peace and quiet as this area had lovely farmhouses, was very much away from the daily commotions of a cosmopolitan city. Today Whitefield is far better known for its famous Sathya Sai Baba Ashram and as a hub for many Multinational IT companies. Because of which Whitefield properties have now become so priceless and everyone are so keen to invest there.
