Sion has always been the preferred location for corporate homebuyers, who want to enjoy a ‘walk-to-work’ culture with easy access to business districts of Bandra&ndashKurla Complex and South Mumbai.


Sion has shown a good resilience in the re-sale property market depending upon the factors like construction quality, amenities available in the project, etc. The region also has tremendous potential to unlock space through redevelopment, many of which can be formalized soon once the SRA reforms are completely in place.

Located close to Mumbai-Pune expressway and the Sion-Panvel, it also provides easy access to both Mumbai and Pune. As the previously preferred locations like South Bombay reaching a saturation point due to skyrocketing prices, Panvel has emerged as an affordable option for both Mumbai and National buyers.


Commenting on the Panvel market, Navin Makhija, Managing Director, The Wadhwa Group, said, “With Mumbai scaling to its maximum with respect to factors like paucity of land and pricing pressures, neighborhood residential locations like Panvel are now emerging as the new epicenter. Further, infrastructural development is boosting the prospects of affordable housing in such micro &ndash markets. The government has shown adequate support with robust infrastructure development and policies like PMAY being implemented, that has helped boost affordable housing in the region.”




Andheri possesses many gated communities, luxury apartments and commercial spaces. The location offers excellent connectivity and social infrastructure and these are the major reasons for its rapid growth.

When you talk about the Andheri realty market, it is always classified into two parts &ndash Andheri East and Andheri West.


While Andheri East has metamorphosed into a major commercial destination and is the densest micro market in Mumbai, comparatively Andheri West is one of the posh and the oldest residential areas of the city.


Sarojini Ahuja, VP - Sales & Marketing, Transcon Triumph said, “Being the hub of Bollywood and TV industry, Andheri real estate enjoys the maximum interest of top celebrities. This has resulted in Uber Luxury project launches with a bigger ticket size which is targeted to the marquee clientele like the HNI’s, industrialists, head honchos of blue-chip firms etc. who belong to the ‘creme-de-la-creme’ of society.”




Newly-developed locations along the Central suburbs such as Kanjurmarg have an edge over other locations due to the presence of high-end residential complexes loaded with state-of-art modern amenities and facilities.

Its strategic positioning on the central line provides easy accessibility to both the Harbour and Western lines of the city's local rail network.


“With excellent connectivity, access to upmarket lifestyle spots, quality housing such as what we are developing and extremely attractive real estate prices, Kanjurmarg is the poised for an exponential rise similar to Powai. It is an extremely attractive option for luxury home buyers”, says Subodh Runwal, Director of Runwal Group.


Considering the overall real estate trends in Mumbai and factoring in affordability, infrastructure and connectivity, Kanjurmarg offers good returns on investment. Large residential towers, office complexes, 5-star hotels and shopping destinations now dominate Kanjurmarg skyline.


Mira Road


As the entire North corridor of Mumbai is proving to be a promising belt for Mumbai’s realtor's fraternity, their attention on Mira road is equally increasing due to the upcoming infrastructural developments like metro, coastal roads, and other social infrastructure. Various parameters responsible for the same are great connectivity to central and southern Mumbai, social and physical infrastructure, Open space, Price quotient and the residential development in and around the micro market.

All these factors have resulted in an increase in demand for residential space in the North”.
