Old Madras Road, located in East Bangalore, is part of the National Highway 4 (NH-4) that connects Mumbai and Chennai. The micro market is in close proximity to the heart of Bangalore and the key business areas of the city. It has a mix of both commercial and residential areas.
Historically, Old Madras Road was an industrial area, and had industries like Tin Factory and NGEF. After the decline of these industries, the properties were demolished and made way for commercial and residential projects. The Old Madras Road region has seen tremendous growth in recent years because of its proximity to IT companies in Whitefield, Outer Ring Road, Hebbal and Electronic City.
Another reason for the growth of Old Madras Road, is the region's brilliant connectivity to other parts of Bangalore, as well as connectivity to other towns and cities. The locality also has a well constructed Metro connectivity, with the main Metro terminal on Old Madras Road.
