Whitefield is a developed residential city and a well-known IT hub on the eastern outskirts of Bangalore. The city is known for having offices of various IT companies. It is primarily an end-user-driven housing market comprised of completed and under construction projects. Suggested housing projects nearby include Prestige Shantiniketan, Prestige Lakeside Habitat, Brigade Cosmopolis, and the DivyaSree Republic of Whitefield.
The city is primarily connected to the rest of the town by Whitefield Main Road, the SH-35, Old Airport Road, and Whitefield Train Station. Additionally, Whitefield is expected to receive Metro connectivity by 2023 through the extension of the Purple Line from Baiyappanahalli to Whitefield, with 13 stations in Phase 2 of the Namma Metro. When the expansion work was completed, this line would connect Whitefield on the east with Kengeri on the west.
Whitefield has quality retail and social infrastructure in educational, hospital, and entertainment venues. Prominent universities nearby include Gopalan College of Engineering and Management and MVJ College of Engineering. Major hospitals, namely Columbia Asia Hospital, Narayana Multispecialty Hospital, and Sri Sathya Sai Super Specialty Hospital, are also located in the area. Inorbit Mall, The Forum Neighborhood Mall, and Ascendas Park, Square Mall are the most famous malls in the city.
Whitefield is a preferred residence for people who work at various computer parks within the city and along the Outer Ring Road (ORR) computer corridor. Major technology parks in and around the town include International Tech Park, EPIP Zone, GR Tech Park, Sigma Tech Park, etc.
Whitefield has had a complete makeover over the last 5-10 years. The main reason for this transformation was solely the emergence of the IT sector in the region. Once a quiet neighborhood, Whitefield has become Bangalore's premier residential area, thanks to the burgeoning IT sector. The construction of International Tech Park (ITPL), India's first and largest technology park in Whitefield, was a turning point for Whitefield residents, who acted as a precursor to a housing revolution in Bangalore's Whitefield. This area was the first to benefit from the infrastructure revolution.
Whitefield was a quaint suburb until the start of the new millennium; when we entered it, Bangalore experienced an IT boom that changed things in the Whitefield area. Once considered a quiet and lonely retirement, Bangalore has grown into the country's largest IT hub. Whitefield was the first area to benefit from this computer revolution and has become one of Bangalore's premier residential destinations.
