Already a massive plantation drive is underway and Authority plans to construct one of the biggest theme parks of NCR on 42 acres of land in Sector 150. Nearly 80% of the sector is expected to be green. Sector 150 being a low density area is soon to develop as an ideal sector. It will become a hub of healthy living in NCR.”
Pivot of all the action
Sector 150 Noida is a forthcoming primary location as a residential cum corporate hub. This sector nearing Noida expressway has been identified as a smart sector. Sector 150 falls under the special economic zone and is quite close to Pari Chowk, Night Safari, Gautam Budh University, Formula 1 and Yamuna Expressway. It is well connected to Delhi, Greater Noida and other NCR regions. The FNG (Faridabad-Noida-Ghaziabad) expressway too promises fast connectivity. The sector enjoys the advantage of proposed Metro Link to pass through it. This adds to the advantages of the upcoming smart sector which has drawn to the real estate projects launched in the area.
In order to give surface to world class infrastructure in sector 150 which is spread over 600 acre land Noida Authority has paved the way to develop a 500 acre Sports City. The proposed greenest sector of NCR will have 80% of green patch. Reportedly, there are only two low density sectors in Noida, 79 and 150. So, besides a low density Sports City a 42 acre theme park, one of the biggest in country is being developed.
The Noida Authority has envisioned to make sector 150 an ideal state of the art sector of the NCR by focusing on integrated sports themed development which will catalyze other infrastructural developments attracting realtors, IT companies and educational institutions. The developers have projected Group housing projects with all the modern world class facilities.
What goes into the making of an ideal sector?
The Sports City spread over 500 acres is said to be developed at a cost of Rs.2300 crore. The Sports city is one of its kind in the country to offer world class recreational and residential facilities for youngsters and professionals. With clear and defined focus on integrated sports theme the sports city can also be the house for other activities like community meetings, exhibitions, tourism and cultural festivals.
The Sports City is mainly a part of recreational land use and therefore this development is proposed in the recreational green area. A separate provision for permissible ground coverage and FAR (Floor area ratio) has been proposed as per the Building Regulations Act of Noida and Master Plan 2031.
This developing Sports City has a FAR of 1.50 which renders a plenty of space for the proposed golf course in the expansion. The project will center a 9-hole golf course. The maximum permissible ground coverage of the entire land is 30% of which 0.5% is reserved for commercial use and 29.5% for group housing and residential use. The major part of 70% will be an arena for open sports and other sports facilities which would include multi-purpose playfields, indoor sports area, cricket academy and swimming center along with a hospital and internal roads and green spaces.
Apart from the Sports city project being developed by Lotus Greens Group, developers like Ace, ATS, Logix, Antriksh, Rudra and Mahagun are developing green, low density infrastructure and sports facility. ATS group has launched ATS Pristine on 18 acres. The 22 storied project has around 700 flats with 85% area covered by green spaces. Getamber Anand, Chairman and Managing Director of ATS group and President Elect – CREDAI said “The project is strategically located at the Noida expressway as Sector 150 has become a preferred destination in the past few years for home buyers. It enjoys good demand due to its proximity to important centers of the city and beyond. “
The realty giants have formed a consortium and are building golf themed township here. The USP of this township is its golf themed housing projects being built on carefully designed layout. This gated community assures a resort like environment, designer golfing fairways, tree lined streets, pedestrian paths, cycle tracks etc.
Keeping in mind the concern for buyers and investors, Sports City caters to various options from affordable to mid-segment and luxury residential projects with promising world class amenities. These projects also promise the prospective of maximum view of golf course and consolidated greens from all the corners. Educational institutions, 5-star hotels, shopping arcades, hospitals and commercial build ups are also a part of this state of the art horizon. The proposed flyovers, underpasses, expressways, metro links has added to the allure of this Sports City which makes for easy travelling and living in its residential space.

The forthcoming Sports city is well connected by way of three main expressways Noida- Greater Noida Expressway, DND Flyway and Yamuna Expressway. The Faridabad- Noida-Ghaziabad corridor once ready will also smoothen the traffic snarls. There are plans to commission a road network of over 20 Km in the area to ease the traffic nightmares. There is also a construction of bridge underway to cut travel time between Noida and Faridabad. As of now it takes almost an hour to travel between the two cities via Kalindi Kunj in South Delhi which is a bottleneck in the peak hours. The bridge will lead to Pari Chowk allowing commuters going towards Noida and Greater Noida to easily access the expressway.
A 126MVA captive power generation plant and sewage treatment plants with an aggregate capacity of 30,000 kiloliters per day are also proposed in the area.

Facility for old age home will also be made available in the sports center itself. It will be the first of its kind in Noida as there is no provision of an old age home till now in Noida. The old age home which will be built in sector 150 will have all the modern and best of facilities for the elderly people.
This is the ideal sector to nest in because it has the essence of all the three elements in abundance be it land, water, air, fire or ether which makes it Vaastu compliant too.
Therefore, if you are planning to buy your dream house with a representation of luxury in the lap of nature then sector 150 is the destination with options to suit your budget with all the niche development plans that amalgamate for the formation of this first ever state of the art sector in NCR.
