Lal Bahadur Shastri or LBS Road as it is more popularly known is an arterial route. It is the S.V. Road of the central suburbs, starting from Kurla in the south and extends all the way up to Thane in the north, connecting towns like Ghatkopar, Vikhroli, Kanjurmarg, Bhandup and Mulund along the way. LBS Road is also home to malls like Phoenix Market City in Kurla, R-City in Ghatkopar and R-Mall in Mulund as well as the office complexes in Kanjurmarg, Vikhroli and Kurla. It is hard to imagine life in the central suburbs without this major road. While it may be busy and burgeoning with people and traffic, it is also a leafy and well planned road. So it is not hard to imagine why a major developer like Runwal Group would choose to locate one of their premier, classy residential projects, Runwal Anthurium along this road in Mulund.
Runwal Anthurium has been designed as a lifestyle residential project for those who want a home above the ordinary and yet not uber luxurious. The four well designed towers of Anthurium fall in between and maintain a fine balance with its premium modern amenities, spacious well planned apartments and classy, tranquil aesthetics. There are various amenities placed on the podium level interspersed between each of the towers. This also means that most apartments will enjoy views that include the verdant and lively podium.
Started in 2008-09, the four towers have been developed on 8 acres of prime land along LBS Road. Tower 1 has been designed as a premium 28 storey structure with exclusive 3.5 and 4 BHK apartments. Tower 2 is also 28 floors but with 2 and 3 BHK units. All apartments in these two towers have balconies to enjoy splendid views. Towers 3 and 4 are 35 storey structures with 2.5 and 3 BHK apartments without balconies. The first 3 towers are completed, have received O.C. and residents currently occupy many of the apartments. Tower 4 on the hand in under construction – the structure is ready, internal work is currently underway and possession is expected by mid-2018. The structure will also include 4 levels of parking – 1 basement + 2 podium. 1 level of parking will be for the public through a BMC pay & park facility.
Apartment Layout and Configurations
All towers will have 4 apartments per floor in addition to 3 lifts – 2 for residents and 1 service lift. The towers have been designed in the shape of an X with and apartments along each arm and the lifts and stairs in the central vertex. This design ensures that each apartment enjoys utmost privacy as well as excellent air circulation, ventilation and natural lighting. Most similar configuration apartments have similar layouts.
For example, the 3 BHK start with a little lobby that turns into a passage which opens towards the kitchen and a bedroom which are opposite each other. The passage then leads to the living room which occupies the entire center of the apartment with windows at either end and fantastic natural light and ventilation. From the living room, one gains access to the master bedroom and the third bedroom which are opposite each other, including a common bathroom.
The following are the various configurations available at Runwal Anthurium:
|Apartment||Area (in sq. ft.)||Price (in crore Rs.)|
|2 BHK||1022 – 1310||1.38 – 1.77|
|3 BHK||1495 – 1900||2.02 – 3.80|
|4 BHK||2400 – 2475||4.8 – 4.95|
At the time Runwal Anthurium opened for bookings, the apartments were being sold at Rs. 13,500 per sq. ft. Apartments have seen quite an appreciation in the intervening time. The ones in the completed towers are now reselling for rates between Rs. 16,000 to Rs. 20,000 per sq. ft. Rental values are fairly lucrative too, with a 3 BHK being leased for Rs. 45,000 a month.
