Hebbal property market: An overview

[] Hebbal is one of Bengaluru’s rapidly-growing regions and has been giving an average annual return of 18%-19% as per estimates. Hebbal currently has more than 50 projects under construction and lies near areas like RT Nagar, Hennur and Yelahanka

The Hebbal real estate market has grown considerably, as this place is an assembly constituency area in the city and also because of nearby IT hubs.

Demand has risen fast for flats in Hebbal and the area is now more cosmopolitan than before.

The Hebbal Lake is a major landmark here and the development of several flyovers, linking to the Bellary Road and Outer Ring Road, have boosted development here. The region has a park and boating facilities in the lake, along with bird watching opportunities. The L&T factory was established in the 1970s and this gave a fillip to Hebbal.
