Pruksa Silvana is a gated community project off Budigere Road, close to Old Madras Road/NH4. The project in Bangalore is a first in India by Thai builder Pruksa. Pruksa Silvana consists of 321 villas and 80 row houses. Originally planned as 238 villas and 200 row houses, the higher demand for villas in comparison to the row houses made Pruksa to go ahead with a plan change. The project kicked off in October 2010, however the official launch date was on 14th May.
Note: I have invested in this project. Please go through the comments completely, my views may be biased, hence I only list concerns here. You can however get in touch on e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org for any queries about Pruksa Silvana

Pruksa Silvana Concerns
There have been some common concerns with the project, some of them have been addressed by Pruksa India
- The approach road leading to the project which is about 800 metres from the Budigere road runs through an industrial hub, this has been cleaned up and is planned to be tarred
- Villas do not have balconies
- Solar provisioning not provided in the initial design – addressed
- Model villa lacked sunshades – addressed
- Customizing changes not allowed – apart from small changes such as electrical changes other changes are not entertained, although this is primarily because Pruksa would like to stick to its committed delivery plans
With Prestige Estates launching Prestige Tranquility right next to Pruksa Silvana, Budigere road now a barren industrial stretch could see positive developments
