The more modern and newly planned extended township of Mumbai, Navi Mumbai is fast growing and witnessed a significant rise in demand for property since the proposal of the new Mumbai International Airport.
Mumbai not being able to keep up with its rapid growth of population has undergone major expansions and Navi Mumbai is one such planned township that started being developed from 1971. Over the years, Navi Mumbai has grown into a well-connected, well-planned and relatively less polluted extension of Mumbai city having a robust infrastructure. CIDCO which was the planning and administrative body took up the development of 95 villages which have now grown into a city in itself and is now going to be divided into North Navi Mumbai and South Navi Mumbai. The aim was to decongest Mumbai city in terms of residential population as well as an expansion of industrial and commercial activities. The polycentric pattern of planning and development of this area has ensured that the Navi Mumbai real estate witnesses an even distribution of residential and commercial benefits in all areas. It also holds more promise being sustainable physically and environmentally.
Today, this planned township spans across a 344 sq. km of land area and has a 150km stretch of creek line. 45% of the land area is reserved for green zones and assures world class infrastructure and healthcare facilities to all its residents. When CIDCO started with its development activities, it aimed to meet the objective of providing affordable housing to all sections of society, specifically concentrating on the LIG (lower income group) and MIG (middle income group). Use of modern technology and showcasing beautiful architectural designs, Navi Mumbai's skyline was transformed by famous Indian Architects and Contractors who undertook the housing projects including Hafeez Contractor, Shirish Sukhatme, Achyut Kanvinde, Ratan Batliboi etc. One of the latest and most coveted developmental projects was the Seawoods Estate situated on 2,30,000 sq. ft. of land area in Nerul that will be featuring exclusive apartments in Navi Mumbai, duplex penthouses and villas.
