Right beside Pizza Hut, Gulshan 1, stands Cymbidium, a beautifully designed 14-storied residential plot by Assurance Developments. With 36 apartments in total, two of the primary features that first catch your attention are the indoor playground and a badminton court on the ground floor. A raised garden and a small water body on the opposite side offers a serene entrance for residents and visitors.
Three apartments are placed on each floor, each designated with multiple parking spaces (72 overall) inside two massive underground basements. The entire building follows safety and security guidelines set by Rajuk and has everything from fire alarms to hoses. CCTV cameras all over the place ensure security for the residents. There are two elevators with a capacity of 8-12 persons and a generator that covers the whole building, sits on the ground floor.
The whole first floor is dedicated to a community space, a meeting room, a kitchen and a wide open terrace.
There are three types of apartments. Type A (North) is 2340 sft, Type B (South) is 2425 sqft and Type C (East) is the largest one available with a huge space of 2530 sqft. Each apartment has 3 bedrooms along with 4 bathrooms and 4 balconies. These also include a servant bed and bath beside a spacious kitchen. Not to mention the family living room designed for you to spend time with your loved ones.
Throughout the apartments, a blend of elegant design aesthetics and materials can be seen. Barmatic doors and aluminium windows paired with beautiful marble tiles make it a near perfect option to consider for your next humble abode.
The rooftop is a work of art with breathtaking views of the Hatirjheel lake. A small garden on top and concrete benches to sit on add to the wonderful experience of standing 14-stories up high as gushes of wind every now and leave you refreshed.
Natural light and ventilation is hardly the last issue to come up in this plot as wide openings on each staircase and floor alike makes it hard to not feel free within. While Gulshan 1 isn't exactly the quietest place around or one with the lowest traffic, it does have all modern amenities spread around the area. Dining spots and shopping places are in abundance and various medical centres and hospitals can be found. There are also a number of banks and embassies in the area.
Completion due: Cymbidium is to be completed within June-July of this year and is priced at 18-20,000 Tk per sqft.
