|# djaydasari Post Subject:Has the project started?Has it finished all the approvals necessary?Sat Jun 27, 2009 04:05 PM|
Does any one have information if the project has started and has it got all the approvals necessary for the project (CMDA ,environmental approval etc).
Any info if this is a good project and the current price?
|# r.rajkumar Post Subject:Discussion on Plaza Tranquil AcresMon Jun 29, 2009 04:59 AM|
Based on financing from HUDCO and the bank approvals (HDFC Home Loans, AXIS Bank, Kotak Mahindra and ICICI Home Finance), it seems there should not be a problem with respect to approvals from CMDA, etc., as each of these institutions will want to protect their lending and see to it that the project meets the required conditions.
The rate seems to be reasonable and though it is marketed with the huge "Velachery" tag, it is at quite a distance from Velachery. The distance from Plaza Tranquil Acres to Velachery MRTS : 4.8 km [wikimapia.org] and it is more than 5 km if you consider having to make a U term after the over bridge to reach the station and the distance from Plaza Tranquil Acres to Velachery Vijayanagar : 5.5 km [wikimapia.org]
The rates for new projects in Velachery even by small builders - in around 1 ground (2400 sqft) of land or lesser, and hence typically without the usual amenities available in larger projects - is upward of 4200/sqft.
Considering the location of the project on the road connecting the current airport with the IT Corridor (OMR/Rajiv Gandhi Salai), it is a good location and also considering the facilities offered, I think it is a good deal.

|Hi Raj Kumar,
Thanks a lot for all your information.
i would like to know if the project construction has started and their claims of getting 90% of the flats booked is true?
I have not seen a single advertisement of this project anywhere in newspapers(Hindu/Times of India).
I am a little concerned if this will get completed in their projected time frame.
When is it schduled to complete if you have any idea?
Thanks again for you information
|# r.rajkumar Post Subject:Discussion on Plaza Tranquil AcresTue Jun 30, 2009 01:31 PM|
The entry in PlaceToLive.in was added after their Hindu Ad (possibly on Apr 04).
Apart from that, I think it will be better for you to actually visit the project site and also interact with the builders.
I am not sure if the "90% already booked" info you are mentioning is accurate. This can be both good as well as bad.
Bad because, one is likely to pick from the "left-overs".
Good because, a lot of people think this project is worth the rate and are investing into it.

I have started a new group for buyers of property from Plaza Builders , Tranquil Acres. The construction is yet to start.I paid 5 lakhs advance in April and the buyer promised start of construction in May .As of July 10th i see no signs of construction .As per the sale agreement the penalty clause starts 3 months after "APPOINTED DATE"."APPOINTED DATE" defined as date when they obtain CMDA approval which can be any date even Dec 2009 .Request all buyers to go through Penalty clause carefully
|# kprakashfca Post Subject:Discussion on Plaza Tranquil AcresThu Jul 16, 2009 09:25 AM|
|Though the builder claims the common area is 14% and wall area is 10% leaving the actual carpet area at 76% the actual carpet area as per drawing is only 72%to paid for area. There is a gap of about 40 sft from what you pay for and what you get. Would any one clarify how salable area is arrived at?
|# maheshdmyl Post Subject:Discussion on Plaza Tranquil AcresFri Jul 17, 2009 07:34 AM|
|I am also having the same doubt about the balance 40 SQfeet space ...... will they mention the details in agreement (ie total area, carpet area etc.,) so that the confusion will be gone.
And regarding the penalty clause... the amount mentioned is less ie Rs5 per sqfeet when compared to the market standards and the price that we are paying to the appartment.

|This is my second post .In the previous meeting we had asked some doubts regarding the sales agreement to Jones Lang LaSalle Meghraj who market Tranquil Acres .The agreement says the penalty clause starts 18 months + 3 months grace period after appointed date or date of signing sales agreement which ever is LATER . The appointed date depends on the date they get CMDA approval,hence we are not sure of Appointed date .We have asked for it to be changed to appointed date or date of signing agreement WHICH EVER IS EARLIER. Hence if we sign sales agreement we won’t be subject to whims and fancies of CMDA .We are yet to get response on this .Will update the group.
We also asked about the penalty clause which states their liability is limited to only Rs 5 per sq foot .Even DLF offered Rs 10 per sq ft. We have booked 1500 sq ft home. So we expect a penalty of Rs 7500 /- p.m which is very low .Mr.Sivaramakrishnan refused to increase the amount and never explained the logic at which it was arrived .I hope if more people get together we can ask again if builder will increase the penalty clause .Will post as and when I get more updates.

What about the understanding between the owners of tranquil acres and owners of serviced apartments after they complete the project. what are all the common amenities they intend to share?
|# deivathai2009 Post Subject:Discussion on Plaza Tranquil AcresThu Aug 06, 2009 05:44 AM|
|Well I am in same boat, even I had paid 10lakhs and the buyer said they would start construction in June .Now it is August it has been 5months and I am losing hope and I guess they will start construction probably by end of this year or next year only. I heard from my friend's friend that they have paid about 20lakhs last year. Builder said they will start construction by dec2008 and now it is august 2009. It has been 1.8years since they gave money to the builder, now they plan to file a case against them. So was anybody able to meet the builder in the recent past. There is also a rumour that one of the partners of the Plaza group had broke his partnership so because of that also there is a delay in starting the construction. Please if anybody get any info please post it.

|# menash134 Post Subject:Construction is startedTue Aug 25, 2009 01:36 PM|
|I had booked a flat in Tranquil acres just by giving the booking advance only. The construction is started
and foundation for A block is being done. They said that the construction will be over by dec 2010. Residents can occupy at jan 2011 and after that 6 months other amentiies work will be going on. like park etc.
Home bay is marketing this apartments and considering the location of the apartments it is very attractive becoz it is in new airport road.
Iam not planning to enter into a sale agreement untill they get CMDA approval.
The problem which was explained to me was, If you are constructing any apartments, you have to pay a huge sum of money to CMDA just for road,water,eb etc apart from the eb deposit, taxes etc. The builders association in chennai has registered a case against the CMDA questioning why the money has to be paid to the CMDA, because they are laying the roads, facilities etc... This case is going on. If this case turns on favour to builders, then they dont have to pay money. If this case turns on favour to CMDA, they said that they will pay the money and get the approval.
The homebay marketing guy (velu) said there is no problem in EC, etc at all.
They have all the approvals in place and then only they are starting the construction work...
He said he is ready to give all the documents for verification, once we agree to go for sale agreement.
Why dont we find the forum of "green acres" - last apartments constructed by plaza builders. So that we can get the experience of the existing customers???
BTW, I visited the green acres apartments by plaza., it was nice and good ...
Regarding the partner broke up thing, the home bay sales guy (velu) said that the previous marketing partner has cheated this plaza group builders and looted some money. He said that is the only reason they are looking for professional marketers and they rope in home bay.
The home bay guy velu is very helpful.. Iam planning to get the case number (which he is saying going on) and planning to check it through net...
This is all the information I have....
|# menash134 Post Subject:good news guys.. the case is withdrawn.. Wed Aug 26, 2009 01:48 PM|

"search for : virgo realtors --- name of builder
shyam prasad- name of MD
area - koilambakkam (some cases it is misspelled in the below site) or kovilambakkam
I just got good news, just go through the below article....
The court case which I mentioned earlier was withdrawn by the builders...
So, NOW CMDA approval should be very easy for our site...
|# kprakashfca Post Subject:Discussion on Plaza Tranquil AcresThu Aug 27, 2009 10:33 AM|
Though i booked a flat , i decided to take back my cheque, as i found the cost worked out to about Rs.3700/- sft considering actual area you are getting in comparison to sold area as well as add ons and completion time of the project. Not sure if you would get back your investment at the end of the construction, with the slump in construction industry. Happen to meet the promoter Shayam, nice guy, honest and frank.
|# chander.harikesavan Post Subject:Discussion on Plaza Tranquil AcresMon Sep 07, 2009 05:51 AM|
|I had been to this site last week and the foundation work was going on. I have booked a double bed room apartment but not done any registration or gone into any agreement yet. Just paid the advance and waiting for CMDA approval. I spoke to Velu and he said they would be getting the approval in one weeks time. Currently foundation work was going on. 2 double bedroom block and 3 triple bedroom block foundation work had started.
|# menash134 Post Subject:Discussion on Plaza Tranquil AcresTue Sep 08, 2009 03:22 AM|
Hope you remember me .Nice to meet you at the site..
According to me, just now the case is withdrawn and lot of builders have been applied for the Approval. And too, there was a discussion between CREDAI members and Stalin to reduce the amenity charges, once that was done. It should be easy cake for us..
I think it will take a month or so to get the approval.
Yeah, I agree, construction was going good..
|# menash134 Post Subject:Discussion on Plaza Tranquil AcresWed Sep 09, 2009 05:57 AM|
|please join us in sharing more information/discussion/views/plans, so that we
can be very vigilant while purchasing with our hard earned money.
I request you all guys to inform in the discussion group website whenever you
are planning for registration (ie. after CMDA approval).
If there is any criteria that has to be changed in the registration document
which we are not comfortable etc.. It shall be made visible to the builder only
if we go in groups for registration.
Iam planning for a private group.
I request all the guys who are actually interested in this property to
acknowledge to join the private group, so that we can form a separate private
group, as this group is very old and it is public.
|# deivathai2009 Post Subject:Discussion on Plaza Tranquil AcresWed Sep 09, 2009 03:24 PM|
Finally the foundation work has started, anyway I have decided to take the cheque back, going with another builder who is handing over the flats in October in the same vicinity area. Good luck all others.
|# menash134 Post Subject:good news just pouring in...Thu Sep 10, 2009 07:04 AM|

|# chander.harikesavan Post Subject:Discussion on Plaza Tranquil AcresSat Sep 12, 2009 07:26 AM|
Yes I do remember you. Nice knowing you. I have a question. is it advantageous to do the registration earlier? I heard big guys like dlf and others do registration at the later stage. Is there any specific advantage of doing the registration earlier other than the risk of registration charge/guideline value going up? what is the general practice?
|# menash134 Post Subject:Discussion on Plaza Tranquil AcresMon Sep 14, 2009 09:52 AM|
I am not an expert at this, as it was my first home.. General practice.. I really dont know...
I enquired velu, will there be any surprise price change than it was committed to us? He said strictly no.
I believe that the registration charge can go up once the guideline value is revisited.. Guide line value might be revisited once the road is named and bridge is open..(this is my guess)
May I request you to enquire your cousin who already booked the flat in serene acres???
