Community Planning: Bijoy Rakeen City
The uncontrolled growth of Dhaka City fuelled by over population has outstripped its ability to provide proper civic amenities and social infrastructure. This haphazard and unplanned growth has seriously impacted the quality of life of its residents – both socially and environmentally. Dilapidated buildings on either side of narrow streets, lack of ventilation, proper sunlight, fresh air and poor sanitation is a common sight. Traffic gridlock is a nightmare. An average 30 minutes drive can take up to 2 hours during peak times. Potholed roads & water logging during rainy season only adds on to the plight of the residents. This directly contributes to a great extent to the severe air and water pollution which the residents of Dhaka are constantly exposed to. Theft, burglary and other social evils are on rampage adding to the ever increasing stress and fear of the residents. Due to lack of proper security and scarcity of open space children are confined to the four walls of their home and are being deprived of their opportunity to play and bond with nature. Nowadays, in most cases kids can only experience the natural world through computers, television and other electronic gadgets.
But is there really no respite? Rakeen Development Company has come up with a spectacular project in the heart of Dhaka City where you can live the life that you always desired. The flagship project “Bijoy Rakeen City” is a plan for escape from the concrete environment, congestion and stress of the current Dhaka City. This standard gated community is spread across 50 bigha land and is located near Kochukhet Cantonment, adjacent to Police Staff College. It is a world of elegance and refinement with acreage of lush greenery, extensive open space, landscaped gardens and beautiful pathways that can make everyday feel like a vacation. There is a vast spread of leisure facilities inside the community which includes temperature controlled swimming pool, tennis court, basketball court, jogging track and specially designed children's playground. A 12 storied lavish international standard community club with facilities like world class gymnasium, library, ladies corner, billiards lounge, table tennis, and multipurpose community hall will ensure that you do not miss out on your regular dose of mental refreshment in case the bad weather keeps you indoors. The 12 storied huge shopping complex has a diverse collection of shops for all ages. It also has banks, ATM booth, medical centre, pharmacy, and super shop to provide you with all the essentials of daily living right at your doorstep. All living spaces are designed with openness ensuring proper ventilation and lighting. An international standard school within the boundaries of the compound will provide premium schooling facility to the children in a safe, secure and cheerful environment. All access points to Bijoy Rakeen City will be centrally controlled by 24hrs strict CCTV.
