Bhendi Bazar

This 16.5 acre majestic project is the largest urban renewal project in India, and is the first Smart Neighbourhood. This project will help turn a squalid city pocket into a green heaven without burdening Mumbai’s shaky infrastructure. It will uplift the living standards of more than 3200 households and 1250 shops. Changing the face of the old city centre with its crumbling infrastructure, poor sanitations, inhabitable buildings & lack of public green spaces will be replaced by habitable homes with cultural & community spaces & better infrastructure. Bhendi bazaar will be transformed to meet needs of growing population. The project acts as an ideal module for future development of the City.

This magnificent project attempts at bringing in orderliness to existing fabric of Bhendi Bazar without losing out on the essence and character of 20th century neighbourhood.  This undertakes responsibility to spiritually, socially, economically & psychologically uplift the locality; to provide the residents with new ownership apartments; to offering wider roads, 50 % more open spaces, well lit houses with parking facilities, amenities, community spaces and shops; and in doing all this maintain religious structures within the site. The project takes a step towards an environmentally friendly Mumbai.
