- Orange County Indirapuram
The NCR will soon boast of an upside down building. Looking at the building from outside, one could be forgiven for thinking the world has suddenly been inverted. The architectural marvel will be built by Meriton Group at its up-market housing project, Orange County, in Indirapuram.Director of Meriton Group, Avnish Agrawal, got the idea of constructing such a building when he went to the United States of America on a tour. WonderWorks, a US-based real estate developer, already have two ‘inverted’ structures in Florida and Tennessee respectively. ‘‘These structures are amusement parks equipped with extreme experience zones like the disaster zone, the challenge zone, space, sound and light zones and laser tag zones, among others,’’ explained Agrawal.Agrawal was so impressed with the building that he decided to build a similar structure for his project in India. He finally decided to use the concept to build a club house for a luxurious condominium project in Orange County, Indirapuram.This, he said, will help in boosting the image of Indirapuram. ‘‘At present, Indirapuram is looked at as a mere junior cousin to Noida, despite the fact that the former is better connected to Delhi. In Orange County, the group is selling apartments worth up to Rs 1.25 crore, fitted with modern gadgets like Jacuzzis and cubical showers. Over 80 per cent of the 700 apartments have already been sold,’’ said Agrawal.
After the construction of the clubhouse, which will be housed in the inverted structure, Agrawal declared, Indirapuram will emerge as a destination in itself—a part of the itinerary of the tourist coming to visit NCR.
