The opportunities to excel and to earn a livelihood for some have increased population of urban cities and thus housing has become a challenge to offer. Thus, the city planners have come up with the concept of Vertical City.

Hence, in this blog post, we offer everything you need to know about Verticalization that is reshaping the Indian real estate sector.

1. Concept of Verticalization

Verticalization refers to increase in high-rise buildings in the city that result in the densification of the urban areas and also develop the city in a vertical manner. The Vertical concept is beneficial for the urban cities as this plans landscape expansion that supports secure and people-friendly residential units.

2. Changing Landscape for Better Future

Today, people at large prefer to own a home and that too in a high-rise apartment. The world-class living structure, modern-day amenities, round-the-clock security system and a living standard attract everyone. Thus, the scattered cities get a proportional look while the tall and exotic looking buildings set the tone for an international lifestyle that too in everyone’s budget.

The Verticalization means tall buildings that are designed aesthetically to accommodate a large number of families without breaching their privacy and security.

3. Longevity of Vertical Cities

The residential structures must be sustainable and thus the high-rise buildings are being constructed with RCC-structure to resist earthquake. Also, the addition of play area, social gathering sit-outs and other leisure activity areas inside the high-rise allow people to grow in a disciplined and healthy manner. However, the budget plays an important role in all this as people define the floor preference accordingly. But, a large number of people prefer higher floors as they can enjoy the picturesque view of nature and also breath clean air as air quality is too bad close to the ground level.

4. Vertical Cities & Green Environment

The entire world today is concerned about global warming and thus the idea to conserve nature is of utmost importance. The vertical cities or the high-rise buildings are the perfect example of environment conservation as the facilities like rainwater harvesting, garbage segregation and installation of solar panels are offered in every tall building.

5. Vertical Cities & Challenges

The high-rise structures have to follow the green building norms and thus these buildings have to keep the track of breakdowns such as non-working of escalators, irregular water supply, trip in power supply and more. Hence, the vertical city concept has to face criticism some times.
