The first and foremost factor to be considered once you decide to construct an apartment, is the plot. A naturally and aesthetically pleasing site will only help add to the appeal of the flat. This will help attract more residents.
In addition to the aesthetics, you should also carefully consider the positioning and topographical features of the land. The land should not appear depressed, in comparison to surrounding areas. A square shaped or rectangular plot will be most preferable. If there is a piece of land inside the plot not conforming to the shapes suggested, then separate this land and use it for other purposes. Make sure you decide the perimeter according to the instructions of a vastu aacharya. Once you buy a land, the first thing you have to do is clean it thoroughly. Level all uneven surfaces. The southwest side is best kept raised, compared to other parts of the plot. Before construction, find an auspicious date and have a Bhoomi Pooja performed. Paying attention to all these will ensure a successful completion of the first stage.
