Despite new launches decline, property prices in Yelahanka did not correct significantly and actually appreciated by 9% in the past 2 years
Existing since the 12th century, Yelahanka is closely linked with the origin of Bengaluru. The book ‘Bengaluru to Bangalore’ by T.V. Annaswamy mentions that the word ‘Yelahanka’ is derived from ‘Valipakka’, meaning ‘along the highway.’ Over a period of time, Valipakka (during Chola reign) transformed into Illaipakka (during Hoyasala reign) and finally into Yelahanka.
The construction of the Kempegowda international airport was a game changer for the region and initiated Yelahanka’s metamorphosis from a sleepy little settlement on the outskirts of Bengaluru into a buzzing residential investment destination.
Yelahanka, which is divided into Old Yelahanka and Yelahanka New Town, is home to many defence establishments such as CRPF training school, Indian Air Force’s Air Force Station and BSF Training Centre. This micro-market also houses the largest facility of Mother Dairy in Karnataka, as well as the rail wheel factory (India’s largest manufacturer of railway wheels and axles).
Yelahanka enjoys excellent social infrastructure including educational institutions, healthcare facilities and entertainment options – and Kere Lake, Allalasandra Lake and Puttenahalli Lake (also a bird sanctuary) scale up the aesthetic value of the region. These factors have combined to attract investors and homebuyers to Yelahanka in droves.
Yelahanka has an excellent connectivity quotient as it is accessible from various parts of Bengaluru through a well-established road and rail network.
