When it comes to commercial activity in Noida, only one place comes to mind — Noida Sector 18. Gen-next awaits weekends to throng the place which throbs with entertainment zones, eateries and every conceivable commercial activity. Now, this commercial hub is set for a new entrant that may change the Noida skyline.
A prime plot of nearly 16,950 square metres, right in the middle of Sector 18 commercial hub, will see a towering 37-floor building — Wave One. Designed by the reputed Brennan Beer Gorman Architects-Brennan Beer Gorman Monk Interiors (BBG-BBGM), New York, this iconic building promises to become a landmark in Noida’s commercial real estate. The plot is surrounded by some of the best known landmarks of Sector 18 like Centrestage Mall and Raddisson. Just as the malls changed the way people perceive this commercial hub, Wave One is set to overshadow all the other hotspots of this location.
It is an integrated complex having retail, offices and a multiplex, Wave One will have constructed space of around 2 million square feet. To take care of the parking woes, the complex will have parking space for over 2,500 cars on upper floors. Car parking on the 2nd and 3rd floor will make the retail shops on these floors as prime as the ground floor.
With the ceiling of ground floor retail shops as high as 5.9 m and an outside opening, visitors and customers will get a feeling of high street shopping at Wave One. For those who have experienced and love the high street feel in other countries, Wave One will fill that gap in the NCR.
Bringing high-class retail, commercial and entertainment under one roof, Wave One will have a 5-screen multiplex with a seating capacity of around 1,500 viewers to be managed by Wave Cinemas. The complex is centrally airconditioned with premium specifications; planned on a rectangular plot, it will provide excellent branding and visibility from all sides. Developers say that the project on a four-side open plot is vaastu and feng shui compliant.
The construction of the project has commenced. Once complete, Wave One will create ripples in the commercial district of Noida, Sector 18 — to say that it will become the hub of commercial, retail and office activity may not be farfetched. With picture-perfect exteriors and interiors, Wave One is sure to replicate a feeling of shopping abroad and is expected to have record footfalls.
