Lodha Amara: Location & Social Infrastructure
Kolshet road has a locational advantage in the market as it combines the luxury of living in a quiet and green neighbourhood with good access to and availability of social amenities in close proximity. The road is four lanes wide with low traffic, which keeps noise and air pollution to a minimum. It is just 7 minutes away from the Eastern Express Highway which provides it with good road connectivity to Mumbai city and its central suburbs.
Future infrastructure developments such as the proposed metro line from Wadala to Ghodbunder Road and the planned Thane-Bhiwandi- Kalyan Monorail project will be in close proximity to the site, which will further improve connectivity and subsequently raise the market value of this area.
Hypermarkets such as Big Bazar and D-mart; malls such as Viviana, R-mall and Wonder Mall; schools such as Hiranandani Foundation School, Kendriya Vidyalaya and New English High School; hospitals such as Hiranandani and Jupiter, are located in a 5 km radius. All this, combined with a scenic view of the Kolshet creek and the quiet, green neighbourhood makes Kolshet road the perfect location to stay close to the city yet maintain a distance from the chaos of city life.
Lodha Amara : Project Overview
Lodha Amara was in launched in July 2015 and is based on the concept of ‘New Urbanism’, which focuses on human-scaled urban design. It involves principles on which the towns and cities were built all these years- having walk-able blocks and streets, housing and shopping in close proximity, and accessible public spaces.
Lodha Amara greets the visitors through a wide, well-guarded entrance. It has a total of 37 wings, divided in three phases. Each phase has its own clubhouse, apart from the main ‘grand’ clubhouse for the entire project. Each building is 27 storeys tall and has 6 apartments per floor along with 2 elevators and 2 staircases. The standout feature of the buildings is that they have been designed in an alternate T-shape. This ensures complete privacy for each apartment. The design also facilitates wider views and better circulation of light and ventilation.
