Rustomjee’s Global City | Premium Luxury Project | Virar

Virar know hows The other day when I visited my hometown in Virar for Christmas, my cousins decided we would go on a bicycle ride to the khar (barren lands) beyond Narangi bypass road to enjoy the scenic charm far away from the hustle and bustle of Mumbai city.

To my surprise there was no khar but an entire fancy township — at par with Hiranandani – Powai or Lokhandwala – Andheri that had come up in its place.

Virar know hows

The other day when I visited my hometown in Virar for Christmas, my cousins decided we would go on a bicycle ride to the khar (barren lands) beyond Narangi bypass road to enjoy the scenic charm far away from the hustle and bustle of Mumbai city. As kids it used to be our favorite pastime and hangout destination. To my surprise there was no khar but an entire fancy township — at par with Hiranandani – Powai or Lokhandwala – Andheri that had come up in its place. The last time I was there was about 5 years ago and all it looked like a countryside! But with these sudden changes that I could see all around, a million questions ran across my mind within a fraction of seconds. All of them boiled down to a simple logical question. Why would anyone want to shift base to Virar, given that it’s pretty far away from Mumbai’s island city and takes a journey of a over an hour if one travels from Churchgate, the junction on the Western suburban local of Mumbai.

The reasons looked obvious. Increasing real estate prices in and around Mumbai has encouraged an influx of population to this region, far out on the North Western boundaries of the city. Moreover, there has been a major efflux of corporate offices from townside to the Western suburbs of Andheri and Malad thus making the nearby areas of Vasai-Virar turn into attractive destinations for affordable housing along this belt. A little bit of research revealed a lot more highlights about the strategic location of Virar. It is at the threshold of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region. The Mumbai-Ahmedabad highway and the Konkan line all pass through Virar. It is also expected to be a station for the proposed Bandra-Versova coastal corridor extension. In recent times there has been quadrupling of railway lines between Virar and Borivali. 101 new train services from Virar have been brought into effect. Once the Rs 10,000 crore Mumbai-Alibaug corridor project-much of which is already ready-takes shape, Virar will become a central hub-the major reason being connectivity with a well-knit infrastructure of roads, trains and highways.

Without an iota of doubt it can be said that Virar has tremendous potential for growth and hence got special focus by government which in turn has provided for abundant infrastructural development thereby changing the perception of Virar from a once less accessible far flung suburb to being poised to be the second largest SEZ around Mumbai and a future Bandra Kurla Complex. Rs 957 crores have been sanctioned for additional water supply and the work of Surya river water project is in full swing. All this infrastructural aid from the Government has proved to be an incentive for major real estate giants like HDIL, Rustomjee, Ekta world to flock to this far off suburb and between them they have developed over 20 million sq. ft. area in this region in recent times.

Global City is here!

Rustomjee’s Global city is one such humongous project transforming Virar from being a satellite city to a metropolitan city in the coming years. Global City, a joint venture of Rustomjee and Evershine builders, has been awarded by CNBC AWAAZ REAL ESTATE AWARD 2013 as “Best 100% complete residential project in affordable segment in Mumbai city”. The project was selected from among 8,000 projects in 12 cities.

Specifications – Global City, Virar

Global city spans 217 acres with well planned infrastructure comprising of 75 feet wide and spacious roads, underground drainage system, dedicated sewage treatment plants and setups for rainwater harvesting. Further plans include shopping malls and education institutions. About 15,000 homes are likely to be constructed here over time. Currently 141 buildings have been completed and these have been handed over. 4,500 flats have been offered possession of which close to 2,500 are now occupied. Amongst the various recreational activities there is a 12 acre amusement park, ‘Yazoo Park’, which is operational.

In a world where expenses put an enormous strain on our budgets Global City-Virar is a living haven that offers relatively lower cost  housing. An apartment of 900 to 1,000 sq. ft. built up area costs anywhere between Rs. 45 lac to 55 lacs which is-about half that of an apartment at Borivali with the same area.  Global City is just  2 km from Virar railway station. There are several shared autos that ply frequently to Virar railway station from here. Additionally the Global City bus service by a private operator is also made available with a bus traversing the area every 20 minutes starting at 5 am in the morning to 1 am at night. The VVMC bus service is expected to cater to residents of Global City in near future. To address the issue of power cuts, the sales manager explained that they had taken direct power supply from MEDC and a direct lease line from MSDCL.

With a development portfolio of approximately 30 million sq. ft. since 1996, Rustomjee constructions has been a recipient of “Asia Pacific Property Awards 2012 – HIGHLY COMMENDED COMMERCIAL RE- DEVELOPMENT, India”, , “Realty Plus Excellence Awards 2015 – INTEGRATED TOWNSHIP OF THE YEAR AWARD” and for 4 of their projects , “ET Best Realty Brands Award” by Economic Times in 2015 to mention a few. Few of their completed projects include Rustomjee Acres – Dahisar(W), Rustomjee Central Park – Andheri(E), Rustomjee Ozone – Goregoan(W), Rustomjee Elanza – Malad(W), Rustomjee La Sonrisa – Matunga etc. The evershine group too has been as progressive. Flagged off in 1960, so far they have built over 58 projects housing over 13,000 families which includes Evershine Embassy and Cosmic in Andheri, Jewel in Khar to Giant townships like Evershine Millennium Paradise-Kandivali and Evershine City- Vasai. If past is a reflection of future Rustomjee and Evershine might just create another important landmark in Mumbai suburbs and it will be the Global City-Virar.
