Located in Chennai, TCP Altura is the fifth and final phase in a series of apartments in the community of Sholinganallur. TCP Altura’s two and three-bedroom units are spread out over five buildings that are seven stories high, containing a total of 405 residences. The area, which is nicknamed the “IT corridor,” has grown rapidly over the last few years. Residents at TCP Altura have access to India’s top IT companies and retail facilities located in the Sholinganallur area.
Developed by Lancor Holdings Limited, TCP Altura provides residents the opportunity to save on their utility bills in addition to leaving a smaller carbon footprint. The apartments feature outdoor energy-saving lighting, external shading devices and grey water recycling. TCP Altura has made a notable effort to reduce embodied energy in materials by up to 70% through the selection of autoclaved aerated concrete walls and UPVC window frames.
With over 33 years of experience, Lancor has completed many residential and commercial projects in the Chennai area. The company strives to offer customers world-class facilities, while still ensuring that projects are environmentally responsible. Lancor plans to pursue a “Green Development” philosophy for all its future projects.
