Crossings Republik is now synonymous with National Highway 24 with this fast developing township taking the planned shape and people taking up residence here in big numbers.
Crossings Republik was launched in 2006 with a plan for around 22,136 residential units; out of this nearly 8,500 flats are ready and around 4,000 families have already taken occupancy. There are many more ready-to-move-in flats available at affordable rates here. It is estimated that around 50,000 residents will stay in this global township when it is fully complete.
Sanjeev Srivastva, the whole-time director of Crossings Infrastructure Pvt Ltd and MD of Assotech Ltd, says: “The real attraction for people is to live in planned and developed areas and these kind of residential townships give them the opportunity to live their dreams. It is for this reason that CR is gaining popularity and the movement of people has added to its attraction. We have several people enquiring about the facilities here every day, and once the full complement of social and physical infrastructure is in place, the place will surely be a haven for residential purposes.”
Developers who have ready-tomove-in flats in Crossings Republik are Assotech Limited, Gaursons India Limited, Mahagun India Pvt Ltd, Panchsheel Group, and flats of Crossings Infrastructure Pvt Ltd.
One of the most important aspects of any real estate destination is the connectivity to the area. People look for areas that give them multiple options of connectivity that enable them to easily move to and from the area. Crossings Republik has a number of connectivity options that will make the lives of people much easier.
One road is being developed to connect Crossings Republik to Noida and another one, underway, will take people to NH-24 by cutting out all the traffic chaos. There is another road that leads to Yamuna Expressway and also connects to Pari Chowk.
Work on NH-24 to FNG Expressway has started. An arterial road from Crossings Republik will connect people to this link road and the connectivity of this area will be enhanced further. Residents and visitors will be able to avoid the traffic congestion at NH-24. Another plus point of CR is the proposed Metro at Greater Noida West, which will be a few minutes’ drive from the township.
To ease the traffic in and around the township, CR has taken initiative to help develop a few underpasses in the vicinity. Crossings Infrastructure Private Limited, with the help of Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA), contributed towards the development of two underpasses on NH-24.
One is at Kala Patthar, which will help in easing traffic congestion on NH-24, and will allow vehicles from Indirapuram (Ghaziabad) to enter Noida via Sector 62. Another underpass is at CISF Chowk, which will facilitate free flow of traffic from Vasundhara, Indirapuram and Vaishali to Noida’s Sector 63.
One of the major attractions of Crossings republic is the 9-hole golf course, which is already operational. To top it all, a golf academy has been started at this golf course with the aim to teach residents the nitty-gritty of the game. The academy has been opened under the aegis of the Delhi Golf House, the first international training facility recognized by the United States Golf Association (USGA).
