Kandivali, one of the most cosmopolitan and well-developed suburbs of Mumbai is now a major residential hotspot in the city. Located in the north-western part of Mumbai, Kandivali is near the business hubs of Malad and Goregaon. The steady appreciation in real estate prices in the Andheri – Malad belt has led to Kandivali emerging as a booming real estate market from its humble origins as a tiny village. Today, this locality is one of the most coveted areas in the northern suburbs of Mumbai.
Here is why Kandivali makes so much sense as a housing destination.
Connectivity to (and from) Kandivali has improved with the extension of the Link Road, making it easier to travel to hubs like Andheri and beyond. Road connectivity for Kandivali is provided by the Western Express Highway on the east, and S.V. Road and Link Road on the west. The Goregaon-Mulund Link Road connecting the western suburbs to the central suburbs also passes through Kandivali. Kandivali is well-connected by buses from the Gorai and Dindoshi bus stands. Moreover, Kandivali railway station is a busy station on the Western Line and all trains headed towards Vasai and Virar halt here. Railway stations such as Borivali, Malad and Goregaon are nearby.
The international airport is 30 minutes away from this area. Moreover, infrastructure projects such as the upcoming metro rail and coastal road are expected to fast-track access to Kandivali.
A variety of residential options:
Many reputed real estate players already have a presence in Kandivali. Mahindra Lifespaces too now has a presence in Kandivali. Kandivali East is the site for Mahindra Lifespaces’ first premium residential launch in 2018 – ROOTS by Mahindra Lifespaces has been designed to offer the balance that we seek in our lives.
‘ROOTS’, situated off Western Express Highway in Kandivali, has been developed on the philosophy of the home as an embodiment of the balance we seek in our lives. A 35-floor independent tower with 126 exclusive apartments, ROOTS offers a mix of spacious 1 BHK and 2 BHK flats in Kandivali East. Unique features of the project include an edible landscape that allows residents to grow part of their fruits/vegetable requirement in earmarked spaces. Additional modern amenities, private balconies for select apartments and a community space and kitchen to foster social engagements mean that ROOTS will enable a truly unique lifestyle for each family!
Kandivali is self-sufficient from a social infrastructure perspective. Reputed schools, multiple hospitals, multi-brand malls and innumerable cinemas, restaurants, and parks mean that all that a family might need are in close proximity. The Sachin Tendulkar Gymkhana and Poisar Gymkhana are also nearby. Perhaps one of the most interesting attributes of the suburb is its cosmopolitan nature; Kandivali is home to a mixed population of salaried professionals and entrepreneurs from communities across India. The area continues to be relatively affordable for the rising middle class, while offering all the major amenities and attractions of an upscale core city area!
