If one is to make a list of the most happening locales in the western side of Pune, it’s likely that Baner will be at or near the top of that list. A small village on the Pune-Mumbai highway till not long ago, Baner is today one of the most premium locations in Pune, boasting of a number of prestigious residential and commercial properties by the biggest names in business. The growth that Baner has seen in a short span of time is mind-boggling and the future looks even more promising for this area.
If one is looking for a home in this part of Pune, it is evident that housing projects in Baner will attract plenty of interest and with good reason. Be it infrastructural projects, connectivity, proximity to workplaces and nice, comfortable homes, Baner has plenty to offer. We look at some of the key features that ensure that a decision to purchase a home in Baner is a wise one.
Proximity to people’s workplaces
Baner first emerged as a real estate destination owing to its proximity to its neighbor Aundh, which emerged as a premium housing destination, but was getting increasingly saturated. Baner stepped in to address the ever-growing demand for housing in this area. Boasting of a large cosmopolitan clientele, Baner is considered to be the ‘Koregaon Park of western Pune’. The infrastructure in Baner is terms of roads, educational institutions, shopping centres and restaurants is comparable to and in many cases, exceeds that in most other parts of the city.
Baner is also well-connected to the center of Pune city, Pimpri-Chinchwad as well as the Mumbai-Pune Expressway. The IT hub of Hinjewadi is located on the opposite side of the Mumbai-Pune highway from Baner and boasts of offices of some of the biggest and most reputed companies such as IBM, Cisco, Capgemini, Accenture, TCS, Infosys and Wipro, which employ thousands of people. Baner is also in close proximity to other IT hotspots such as Senapati Bapat Road and plenty of demand from these places comes to Baner.
Baner is also in close proximity to the Pimpri-Chinchwad industrial belt, home to major manufacturers such as Tata Motors, Bajaj Auto and Atlas Copoco to name a few. To complete the picture, the proximity to Mumbai via the expressway has seen many investors and those looking for a vacation home from the ‘Maximum City’ also purchase properties in Baner, contributing to the area’s attractiveness.
Top class road infrastructure
Having good infrastructure is a major positive for any location, as this plays an important role in attracting new residents, which in turn, leads to more growth and development. Baner has benefited from two aspects: the Commonwealth Youth Games in neighbouring Balewadi in 2008 saw a number of good roads being constructed, boosting connectivity to other parts of Pune and secondly, the inclusion of Baner as part of the smart city initiative of the Government of India.
Today, Baner boasts of good, all-weather roads and great connectivity to the major hubs of Pune such as Shivajinagar, University of Pune and Pune Railway Station, all of which are within 10 km from here. The Pune Airport is 16 km away and can be reached easily as well. Baner’s location on the Mumbai-Pune highway is another major positive as one can reach here from Mumbai’s eastern suburbs and Navi Mumbai within 2-2.5 hours. This aspect has led to many people from these places purchasing apartments in Baner to use as a second home or a vacation home.

Baner is among the most developed localities in Pune, when it comes to both the quality and number of conveniences available for residents and their families. Whether it is education, healthcare, shopping, dining or enjoying, Baner has plenty for everyone.
