Cluster planning has been a characteristic feature of Good Earth Malhar-Resonance. The emphasis has been on streets as friendly, social and interactive spaces. These streets, with chatty street corners and cluster parks, loop around the neighborhood and converge at the plaza and lead to a large playground. The open spaces are planned at different levels, in response to the natural topography of the land, and are linked to each other, though densely wooded pedestrian paths.

Set in a coconut and arecanut plantation, Good Earth Palmgrove is an eco-community layout that is based on ecological site planning and landscape, such that the entire layout enjoys large central open spaces that have various character catering to different age groups. Artful contouring of land and artistic installation of stone boulders make the campus a delightful experience. Indigenous flora adds colour, texture and aroma that would engage the visitor’s sensual experience of the campus.
Good Earth Orchard was planned around cluster homes and intimate open spaces. The idea germinated from the natural landscape of the site and also the essence of community living. Each individual home responds to the context and climate and to the environment around them in terms of spacious verandahs, courtyards, backyards, gardens and boulevards. These elements integrate the homes with nature and thus bring about balanced planning. The clusters are linked by streets, purposefully not kept too wide to avoid heavy vehicular movement making it safe and more user friendly.
