Last updated on April 7, 2020 by Chrisanta Dias

Thane City is one of the fastest-developing residential and realty markets in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR). The borders of the city keep expanding as more people choose to make this vibrant and thriving city their home. More and more corporates are also opting to locate their offices and branches in Thane, thus taking advantage of the economical realty rates as compared to the island city, and the improving infrastructure.

Pokhran Road 2 – Why Investing In Retail Here Makes Sense

Thane City is one of the fastest-developing residential and realty markets in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR). The borders of the city keep expanding as more people choose to make this vibrant and thriving city their home. More and more corporates are also opting to locate their offices and branches in Thane, thus taking advantage of the economical realty rates as compared to the island city, and the improving infrastructure. With numerous malls and shopping centers spread across this city, Thane has also seen a boom in retail spending from both consumers and premium retail brands. Cushman & Wakefield’s research supports this – its Mumbai Retail MarketBeat for Q3 2019 indicates that mall rentals in Thane have increased 10.7% Y-o-Y in this period, showcasing Thane’s growing clout as a retail hub.

As a result of this rapid growth numerous neighbourhoods have emerged as more favourable than others for an overall engaging experience. Pokhran Road 2 is one such neighbourhood. In addition to being a well-maintained, busy arterial route, Pokhran Road 2 is also an investor’s dream location. Here’s why…

Fast-Growing Residential Market

Pokhran Road 2 has witnessed tremendous residential growth in the last decade. A number of residential gated communities by top realty brands have come up on this major road and in the general neighbourhood. A new gated community with a sprawling retail center is now coming up on this road. This translates to a huge captive audience as well as access to the nearby communities, and an opportunity to offer a high value retail experience across the shopping spectrum of goods and services. The advantage of being located in an immersive retail space on Pokhran Road 2 is that your retail outlet will be the first option for customers residing in this neighbourhood thus giving your brand the first mover advantage in attracting customers.

Retail-Savvy Customers

As more branded residential communities have come up on Pokhran Road 2 the diversity of the population has widened leading to a customer base with varied buying tastes and more refined shopping habits. This is also reflected, on a wider scale, in the expansion of numerous top brands and retail chains and franchises to Thane city. Pokhran Road 2 is also an office hub with the offices of top employers such as TCS, Tata AIG and Glaxo-SmithKline located here. Their employees represent another base of customers for whom quick shopping trips (or even just window shopping) to a retail center located close to their office is very welcome.

Increased Retail Scope

Pokhran Road 2 is an upmarket neighbourhood which has a high residential density but a low retail density thus making it a ripe market for the presence of a busy and thriving retail market that is home to big brands and favourite premium brands. The presence of employment hubs nearby means working consumers on the look-out for a top-of-the-line retail experience close to the workplace. Being the only and a hyper-engaging retail center on Pokhran Road 2 offers enormous opportunities to your brand for effective marketing, steadier brand recall and immersive brand engagement with current and potential loyal customers. 

Well-Connected Location

Pokhran Road 2 is one of the most strategically located neighbourhoods of Thane. It is right off the busy and important Majiwada junction. This junction is the site of the metro station for the upcoming Metro Line 4 (Wadala-Ghatkopar-Thane-Kasarvadavli). The Majiwada junction is also an important junction where various arterial routes converge – namely the Eastern Express Highway and the Mumbai-Agra National Highway. A few minutes away is the Kapurbawdi junction where the Eastern Express Highway meets the Mumbai-Nashik Highway which also leads to fast-developing suburbs such as Bhiwandi and Kalyan.

Thus, a high-value retail outlet located on Pokhran Road 2, close to these important junctions, would bring a high footfall of customers looking for an engaging shopping experience while also benefiting from a better transit experience thanks to the favourable location which ensures good connectivity.

In Conclusion…

Most successful marketing mantras suggest location is one of the keys to the success of any brand. Upmarket Pokhran Road 2, with its high consumer density thanks to the many residential communities as well as offices, provides an outright opportunity for brand success. Locating your retail outlet on Pokhran Road 2 with its excellent connectivity, easy access to consumers looking for high-end retail experiences and an upcoming retail center by a top real estate brand is the easiest and most favourable retail marketing decision to make.
