Eco Friendly Housing at New Kolkata & World Earth Day 2018

22nd April, a Sunday. Ordinary lazy feelings associated right? Or I guess you must be knowing about the significance. If not then let me tell you- It was World Earth Day 2018! Yes. The day which stands equal to every nation without any borders. I believe human beings are the biggest enemies of the blue planet but I salute some Eco-friendly soldiers of the mother earth who are trying their level best to maintain the ecosystem in proper balance.

Recycling is the key!

I don’t remember if I did something very special on this day for quite many years. I am being very honest. But this year, my work gave me an opportunity to be a part of a majestic and eco-friendly celebration by New Kolkata, a green home design project by Alcove.

Before arriving at the main project of New Kolkata!

Before getting to the mains, let me clear some of the basics in the beginning-

1. Who is Alcove Realty?

4. How did New Kolkata celebrate World Earth Day?

New Kolkata inaugurated the birth of a green habitants club as the main part of the complex of the society of flats in New Kolkata. The residents were invited to become the members of the club and their main objective was Make Everyday, Earth Day which will continue forever through regular eco-friendly activities or workshops and seminars, e.t.c. These were also held on the same day in which every resident gladly took part!

5. What is the plot/floor planning in New Kolkata?

As mentioned before, there are 5000 flats in New Kolkata with three main blocks. The flats are available in 1 bhk, 2 bhk and 3 bhk with a common lawn area facing the riverside on each floor. The floor plans are modern and are basically green home building plans which ensures a good health and fit mind!

Plan 1:

Plan 2:

Plan 3:

Common area plan:

So basically, the eco-home plans are extremely affordable and in the same place too aesthetic to the eyes. New Kolkata is exactly what every person wants in a society. As it promises for a corporate building as well, I am sure it will promote extreme growth in the society. The World Earth Day event was extremely impressive and most importantly innovative. In one sentence I can say is that “Finally I could breathe!”
