GIFT City, Gujrat

'GIFT City' stands for 'Gujarat International Finance Tec-City', another ambitious project by Gujarat government to create a hi-tech CBD. GIFT City is spread over 900 acres of land approx. and is almost equi-distance from Ahmedabad and Gandhi Nagar. With an aim of creating a very high quality infrastructure to cater tech firms and to give an option to firms who are based in Mumbai or Gurgaon.

"To design a CBD that will serve as a paradigm for Next Class city in terms of quality of life, infrastructure and ambiance aiming to be high-density and high-rise, treating land as a precious resource."
This is what the concept behind it, as the official website says.

This is under construction and basic infrastructure is being built. While in Ahmedabad this time, I decided to have a look at the area as I was quite fascinated by the height restriction allowed here. The building heights here can go upto 410 meters... Really Impressive.
To be honest, that world-class feel of the GIFT city was quite prominent even while travelling from Ahmedabad. If I am not wrong, it is a 4-5 km diversion from Ahmedabad-Gandhi Nagar highway. Excellent roads and quality branding leads you to the GIFT City. The glimpses can be seen from the images above...
