Real stories of happy people make the best advertisements and it is this authenticity that reflects in our new ad campaign. We couldn’t have got better testimonials than from our own residents proud to be a part of the DLF5 community. This inclusive advertising campaign is only one of the initiatives rolled out to keep our residents closely involved in our efforts to make DLF5 one of the most progressive residential communities. The other steps taken include an exclusive website that works around your needs, DLF5 memorabilia that gives you yet another reason to love where you live and the all-new, revamped High5, your very own niche lifestyle magazine. All these efforts stem from the same intention: celebrating the spirit of togetherness.
I would also like to share with you some of our recent accomplishments – more feathers in our collective cap. It gives me immense pleasure to announce that The Aralias has been voted as the best condominium in Gurgaon by a survey conducted by the Indian Market Research Bureau in association with the Times of India. The objective of the survey was to sift through Gurgaon’s concrete clutter and identify the best condominiums to live in by computing a ‘pride quotient’— essentially a satisfaction index. We also won the ‘Best Residential Apartment Project – Luxury for The Magnolias and the ‘Best Residential Apartment Project – Mid Segment’ for DLF Park Place in The Mail Today Real Estate Awards 2014. These awards are as much a testimony of our hard work and commitment as they are of your trust and support and we are sure with this winning partnership, more accolades will follow.
This issue of High5 is extra special for us and that is because of our cover story an exclusive interview with the legend himself, Gary Player. The golfers among you must be looking forward to a game at the DLF Golf and Country Club – Gary Player Course. The golfing Mecca will be ready to greet you soon, but until then we give you an insight into the life and passions of the truly inspirational Gary Player. We also showcase the beautiful homes of three DLF5 families and share the personal travelogue of one resident. Learn more about your city through the tete-e-tete with Gurgaon Police Commissioner Alok Mittal and if all that is not enough food for thought, we even have a story on the city’s talented baking entrepreneurs.
I hope you are enjoying reading this magazine as much as we are enjoying putting it together. It is our relentless effort to bring interesting, informative and relevant content in each issue. As with all our efforts in DLF5, this too needs your participation and I urge you to share your valuable contributions and feedback.
