Infrastructure development has been the key differentiator that sets Thane apart, from the other realty markets in adjoining areas.

Thane real estate market’s USPs
Experts point out that Thane’s connectivity, will play the main role in its development. “It is accessible from a network of roadways, such as Ghodbunder Road, JVLR, SCLR, Eastern Freeway, NH-8, Mumbai-Nashik Highway and the Thane-Belapur Road. This makes it easy to commute to neighbouring areas and the main city,” explains Dharmesh Jain, chairman and managing director, Nirmal. “A wide variety of choices and upcoming constructions, have increased Thane’s popularity as a residential and commercial hub. Contradictory to land-starved main city areas, which are plagued by congestion and traffic issues, Thane has green areas, well planned infrastructure and open spaces, offering a more enriched living,” adds Jain.
The municipal corporation has also come up with the ‘Vision 2031 Thane’, which focuses on infrastructure, financial accounting procedures and overall building capacity. Thane also has a strong presence of commercial realty, businesses and offices, which is only expanding and has been vital for increasing the overall potential of the area. Consequently, Thane was one of the few destinations that continued to remain stable even after demonetisation and the various reforms that were introduced.
