Situated at the junction of three transport networks—Monorail, Metro and Eastern Freeway—it is easily accessible to most parts of the city. You can reach South Bombay in just 20 minutes via the Eastern Freeway or drive down to the airport in a short time via the SCLR.

Massive investment potential

Moreover, MMRDA plans to revamp Wadala as the next Central Business district, which only means opportunities galore for this mixed-use development.
“We are growing at 25 per cent and are adding employees every year. So, when we were scouting for an office, we had to look at a larger office space. We went to various locations and then happened to see Lodha Excelus at New Cuffe Parade. It met all our requirements and the building is very modern," added Tarak Patel.
With its brilliant location, stylish architecture, modern amenities and mixed use, Lodha NCP has become the preferred address for Mumbai’s C-Suite.
