VIJAYAWADA: The first flat of the high-rise HappyNest towers was sold just 42 seconds after Andhra Pradesh Capital Region Development Authority (APCRDA) threw open its portal for bookings on Friday at 9 am. Officials concerned said the demand for the flats was high throughout the day and all 300 flats were purchased by the evening in spite of the initial technical glitches due to overloading of the server.

“We had estimated around 15,000 people to access the website server. However, surpassing our expectation, over one lakh people accessed the server. We enhanced the capacity later to ensure smooth transactions,” the officials said.While 200 flats were booked by 12 noon, the remaining were purchased by 6.30 pm, the authority officials added. On the occasion, APCRDA commissioner Cherukuri Sreedhar said the tremendous response to the flats was an indicator of people’s confidence in the capital city housing project and the demand for housing in Amaravati.

The commissioner added that the sale of 300 more flats will be held on November 15. The project is aimed at kick-starting residential activity in the new capital, he added. It may be recalled that the APCRDA is set to construct 1,200 flats as part of the project. “We will invite tenders for the flats booked on Friday in a week and start construction in a month. Though the time allotted for project completion is 36 months, we will try to complete the works in two years,” he said.
