The transformation of Bangalore into the modern metropolis that it is today has singlehandedly been due to the establishment of the IT industry in the city. The result of several IT majors setting up their home bases here was that there was a glut of job opportunities suddenly available in the city and this led to a massive inflow of new residents into the city. These new migrants to Bangalore then began to look for residential options close to their workspaces. One of the localities that saw a meteoric rise with the establishment of several tech parks and offices of IT giants was Sarjapur road. This once sleepy laidback single-lane road saw a major change in character and suddenly became the hub of activity as a number of commercial real estate developments began to come up here. With more and more of the workforce employed in this locality looking for residential options here, the residential real estate of the area boomed too. Infrastructure development kept pace with the real estate development and the strong infrastructure, both physical and civic, became another reason why Sarjapur road became a major residential spot. Residing here gave individuals the ease of living close to their workspaces, greatly cutting down on the stressful daily commute to and from work. Also, the area is now a thriving truly cosmopolitan neighbourhood which abounds in healthcare facilities, educational institutions, banks, ATMs, and several avenues for leisure, shopping, and entertainment, giving residents an all-around easy and comfortable living experience. In addition to being close to workspaces located in the vicinity, Sarjapur road is conveniently located within easy travel times to other major employment hubs of the city such as Whitefield, Marathahalli, and Electronic City and other major localities such as Koramangala and HSR layout. All of these factors have contributed to Sarjapur road becoming a major residential spot in Bangalore today.
