Why is NOW the best time to live at Lodha New Cuffe Parade?4 min read . Updated: 08 Jan 2020, 04:18 PM IST
The new BKC connector has cut down travel time from New Cuffe Parade-BKC to under 10 minutes. #NCPmeetsBKC
The opening of the new four-laned Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC) -Sion connector last month brought BKC closer for thousands of Mumbaikars in the Wadala-Sion belt. For over 1,000 families living in Lodha Group’s premium offering, New Cuffe Parade (NCP), the travel time to BKC has come down to under 10 minutes. So, instead of wasting precious life hours stuck in endless traffic jams, NCP residents are now able to spend quality time with their families and even pursue a hobby or sport.
“The beauty of this bridge is that you virtually get zero signals before you reach BKC. I feel this [NCP] is going to be one of the most centrally located areas and that our investment seems to be in the right place," says Srinivas Jain, Executive Director, SBI Mutual Fund, who is a resident of Lodha NCP.
Another resident echoes the same sentiment: “With the BKC connector opening, it has become a pleasure to have meetings at BKC. The fact that we can now have a traffic-free route allows for better time management. I get more time to relax with my family and can even partake in a Zumba fitness program and swimming, which I found no time for earlier."
And, this is only set to get better from here, as Lodha NCP benefits from the opening of the under-construction Thane-Wadala Metro line, the monorail to Mahalaxmi, Lower Parel and Chembur and the Metro 11 link from Wadala to GPO and CST, all of which fall in its vicinity. Located in Wadala, Lodha NCP is less than 20 minutes away from Fort and less than10 minutes from BKC
Be at the heart of BKC-2
The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA), in fact, has plans to transform Wadala into BKC-2, a buzzing commercial hub on the lines of BKC. Home owners at NCP are expected to benefit immensely from this decision, as property prices in the area are projected to come on a par with BKC. The prevailing rates today are at just about half of those levels.
Mr. Gautam Saraf, Managing Director, Mumbai Cushman & Wakefield, says: “The opening of the Bandra Kurla Complex flyover will improve connectivity and reduce commute time for many who come to BKC for work. This will surely give a big boost to office and residential markets in the region. Mumbai’s growing workforce mostly live in Wadala, Chembur and Sewri, which will connect well with the BKC-EEH bridge. It will also connect BKC to South Mumbai. This corridor provides a great expansion option to BKC office, now that BKC office buildings are running short on new supply and no further land plots are available for new developments. Large and ready developments such as Lodha Excelus will certainly see a rise in demand – especially as they have been blessed by large money investments from Tata and international partners."
Mr. Karan Singh Sodhi, Regional Managing Director Mumbai, JLL, says, “BKC can now draw a bigger workforce from the eastern suburbs, along the EEH and the Eastern Freeway – especially Wadala, Chembur and Sewri, which are in the near vicinity. BKC is now just 10-20 minutes away by road from these localities. The residential developments on this corridor are modern, good quality and relatively affordable, and hence have been attracting middle- and upper-middle white-collared talent. Going forward, we also expect the ready supply in this area to move up in pricing, post the opening of the BKC-Sion connector."
Live around Mumbai City’s largest private open space
Smart investment apart, Lodha NCP offers a world-class living experience, which only a few other condominiums in the country can match. Spread across a sprawling 22 acres, Lodha NCP boasts of a private green area that spans about 15 acres, making it Mumbai city’s largest private open space. The development also features a 75,000-square foot luxury clubhouse, one of India’s leading ICSE schools, office spaces, retail and food and beverage options and even Jain and Ganesha temples within the development.
Top international names like WOHA Singapore, one of the forerunners of green architecture, have been roped in by Lodha group to design the skyscrapers, the landscape and the homes themselves.
The state-of-the-art clubhouse offers a host of indoor activities like indoor badminton and squash courts, table tennis, card room, snooker and carom, a foosball table, apart from 11 swimming pools in the development, including an Olympic-length one. It even boasts of an elevated jogging track inspired by New York’s High Line Park.
Select residences have been designed by internationally acclaimed designer Kelly Hoppen and feature imported marble flooring and full-height French windows. Black Italian marble with stainless steel rims has been used in the living rooms. The residences at New Cuffe Parade are fully air-conditioned and designed to exude luxury and class.
Doesn’t harm to be a responsible citizen!
Becoming a Lodha NCP resident also allows you to do your bit towards the cause of global warming. Spending lesser time on the road in your commute to work every day translates into lesser consumption of fuel by almost 75 per cent and therefore, a lower carbon footprint. In an age where global temperatures are rising to alarming levels and many measures are being taken by countries the world over to contain the rise to less than two degrees, everyone needs to be a part of the change and NCP residents are definitely contributing.
If you were wondering if moving to NCP is a step you should take, the answer is yes. The time has come for you to build the dream home for you and your family.
