Cornerstone has initiated Cornerstone Green, a social initiative that is formed to value add social and environment concerns of Bengaluru. We are concerned not just with the creation of wealth, but also concerned with its redistribution to aid social causes. Its responsibility is not just to its immediate stakeholders, but also to the community in which it functions.The initiatives that will be undertaken under Cornerstone Green include:
Bengaluru earned itself the sobriquet of a Garden City years ago, much before it became the IT hub of India. However, it doesn't take a keen eye today to see that Bengaluru's 'garden city' image has become but a legend of yore. There are of course little oases that you spot every now and then, especially in the CBD areas, but most of them have fallen prey to vandals, are polluted or are simply unkempt. Efforts are a few and scattered in restoring these little patches of green, but they are out there nevertheless
At the junction of the CMH Road and 100 Ft Road in the heart of Indiranagar, the Indiranagar Park stood in the midst of a residential community that shuddered at the thought of stepping into it over the past several years now. Poor lighting, local garbage dump and wild and tall weeds made the park fall to complete disuse.
As a part of our mission to make a difference to the community at large, we at Cornerstone decided to do up the park. The sole purpose was to redo the park in such a way that the residents of Indiranagar feel proud to call it their own.
Work began in the month of September 2012 and in just a span of four months, today the park has been transformed from a dark and dingy corner to a green, well lit lung space for all age groups.
While the Indiranagar Park may be functional in so many ways, the attention to aesthetics is worth mentioning.
The raised platform that plays home to the monolith as you enter, gives you a bird's eye view of the park. When it is lit up in the evening, it adds a sense of depth to the space and makes it much warmer. All the greenery you see around is unobtrusive and a brilliant mix of flowering, herbal and foliage plants makes the entire place soft and in varying shades of green.
You will find stone pillars placed close to the senior citizen area that are a throwback to ancient times in history and symbolize standing the test of time. The wind chimes in the trees give you that zen feeling when you are here.
Cornerstone has paid attention to every detail in the creation of a green space for everyone to enjoy.
