Mumbai is called the City of Dreams. And for a good reason – it is welcoming to people from across cities, states and borders. Everyone finds a home in the city, irrespective of their needs, likes, affordability and lifestyle. South Mumbai, specifically, is the crowning jewel.
Here are a few of the many reasons you’ll love to live in South Mumbai:
1. The old-world charm
The world has advanced and Mumbai has followed suit, yet, you’ll find the city’s quaint charm concentrated in South Mumbai. The beautifully-crafted ancient structures that compete with contemporary high-rise buildings are capable of evoking a strong sense of nostalgia. Even in the fast-paced world, you will find glimpses of the beautiful past.
2. The elitist value
The prestige value of being a South Mumbai resident is incomparable. You rub shoulders with the city’s crème-de-la-crème, hangout at the hottest destinations and enjoy a lifestyle quite unlike your other fellow-citizens. If you hail from South Mumbai, you’re already a part of the most elite club.
3. Property appreciation
Several prime locales in South Mumbai have witnessed commendable appreciation this past year. The rates in Mahalakshmi went up by an impressive 4.9%* and a whopping 24.7%* in Mazgaon. Going by the track record of the region, investing here is always a good idea – there may be slight fluctuations but the ROI is largely stable.
4. Reliable civic infrastructure
The Eastern Freeway, India’s second largest flyover, connects P D’Mello Road in South Mumbai to the Eastern Express Highway (EEH) at Ghatkopar, considerably cutting down on travel time.
The city’s flagship infrastructure project, which is a Rs. 12,000 Cr. toll-free coastal road, has got final environmental clearance from the Centre. Its first phase is set to connect South Mumbai's Marine Drive and Bandra’s Carter Road. The second phase will link Bandra to Kandivli along the coastline.
5. Robust social infrastructure
South Mumbai is the ultimate hub of all things happening – from luxury shopping to high-end restaurants and premium services in healthcare and entertainment. It is host to the most prestigious schools, such as The Cathedral & John Connon School and JB Petit; the most exclusive clubs like The Willingdon Sports Club and Bombay Gymkhana, and the most luxurious hospitals namely, Breach Candy Hospital and Jaslok Hospital.
Besides, the locality is blessed with stunning views of lush greenery, in the form of the Mahalakshmi Race Course and the magnificent Arabian Sea. Discover all the niceties of South Mumbai, in 2 & 4 BHK luxury homes on Hughes Road in Mumbai.
