A perusal of the most sought after residential localities in Indian cities nowadays will reveal that they tend to follow a common pattern. Land availability and improved connectivity by means of construction of a major road/airport/Metro line attracts industry, which in turn, brings in people who decide to settle here. However, there are always exceptions to this rule. One such area is the locality of Anna Nagar West in Chennai.
Anna Nagar West is a premium residential area next to Anna Nagar and Mogappair in west Chennai. This area was a village till 1968, when the World Trade Fair brought about planned development and plenty of it. Today, it is one of the most preferred places to live in this part of the city and many leading developers boast of projects in this area. We look at some of the most compelling reasons why you should seriously consider Anna Nagar West as your abode in Chennai.
You can easily get around Chennai
It’s but natural one would look to live in a place from where getting elsewhere is a breeze and not the equivalent of an obstacle race! From that angle, Anna Nagar West is among the best places in Chennai to live, with every other place within easy reach. Let’s begin with bus connectivity. Anna Nagar West has one of the main bus terminals in the city, with regular buses plying to all parts of Chennai, from Ambattur and Redhills in the west to Broadway and Thiruvanmiyur in the east and south.
The Chennai Metro is another force multiplier when it comes to connectivity. The area is served by two metro stations, Thirumangalam and Anna Nagar Tower, which directly connect it to major transport hubs such as the Chennai Mofussil Bus Terminus and the Chennai International Airport.
The road network in Anna Nagar West is equally impressive. Some of Chennai’s major thoroughfares such as the Grand Northern Trunk Road, the EVR Periyar Road and the New Avadi Road pass through here, further enhancing intra-city connectivity. Offering both ease of travel and convenience, Anna Nagar is clearly in one of the sweetest spots in this regard.
…And also get to other cities
If you need to frequently travel out of Chennai, you can do no better than choosing Anna Nagar West as your base location in the city. Chennai’s main outstation bus stand, the Chennai Mofussil Bus Terminal (CMBT) is literally right next door. Whether one wishes to board a bus to Bangalore, Hyderabad, Kochi or somewhere else, all one needs to do is take a very short ride of less than 5 minutes in one’s vehicle (or 1 stop in the Metro) to get here.
If you are fond of trains, no problem there too! Both Chennai Central and Chennai Egmore, the city’s biggest train stations, are within 8-10 km from here and can be reached within 3 minutes. These stations will soon be directly connected to Anna Nagar West by the Metro, which should further ease any travel worries. For the high-fliers among you, the Chennai Airport can be reached within 45 minutes by road and in lesser time using the Metro with no traffic-stress as an additional benefit.
Your workplace is easily approachable
When looking for a place to live in, a major consideration for a home buyer is whether its location allows one to maintain a healthy work-life balance. Having a home too far from one’s workplace means that one ends up spending a lot of valuable time daily away from their families, negotiating the chaotic and stressful traffic. This worry is significantly reduced if one chooses to live in Anna Nagar West.
The Ambattur Industrial Estate is within 5 km from here and home to many reputed companies in the textile and IT sector. Two of Chennai’s main IT parks, the One Indiabulls Park and Ambit IT Park are home to some of the biggest names in technology globally. The town of Avadi, home to many major government and military establishments, is easily reachable from here via the New Avadi Road and so is Perambur, home to the Integral Coach Factory, which is India’s main railway coach manufacturer. Even the automobile and electronics hub of Sriperumbudur, home to Hyundai, BMW, Ford, Motorola and Dell among others can be directly reached using the EVR Periyar Road. In short, whichever industry you work in, you are likely to find a direct connection to this area.
All facilities you require are here
Anna Nagar West is among the best planned localities in Chennai, offering almost everything one needs or desires. This area is teeming with top schools such as the British School, Vidvattva International School and Chinmaya Vidyalaya with others such as DAV School in neighbouring Mogappair. For any health concerns, you can choose from among the Madras Medical Mission, Neomed Hospital, Sundaram Medical Foundation and the Madras Naturopathy and Siddha Hospital to name just a few options.

To catch the latest movie, one can head to AGS Cinemas, PVR Skywalk or Rohini Silver Screens nearby. Finally, if one is just looking for a good family outing, one can choose from among the Anna Nagar Tower, Millennium Park or the Chennai Rail Museum.
