What is Mumbai famous for? Mumbai has become synonymous with the simple but popular Vada pav, Bollywood or the Hindi film industry, the Gateway of India, the Taj Mahal Hotel, local trains, the heavy showers during the monsoon, the congested roads and most importantly, the blissful view of the expansive sea from Nariman Point to Gorai and beyond. Now imagine a grand apartment that one lives in, close to the beach if not on it, while one enjoys the benefits of residing in the ‘Maximum City’ of India, but without the fuss and chaos that has become the norm for the twenty million plus people who call Mumbai their home. Sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? That perception changes drastically when one owns his/her own king sized nest in SD Lumiere, an imposing residential tower by SD Corp in the plush locality of Versova overlooking the Versova Beach and the Arabian Sea in Andheri.
SD Lumiere: About SD Group

SD Lumiere: Features and Amenities
Living at Lumiere speaks of luxury and prestige, because the features and amenities provided to its lucky residents are overflowing with opulence. Firstly, to ensure that each apartment is given the proper care and attention, the project has just one tower with only 64 residences in all. The first six floors are the parking levels which have car lifts to give you the impression of a valet parking. The developers have constructed a double heighted entrance lobby to make sure that the residents feel extra special while entering or leaving the hotel-like premises.
Above these parking levels, there are 16 habitable storeys. Finally, over these floors is the 23rd floor where all the amenities of the project are housed right beneath the sky. A fabulous infinity pool with deck, a cafeteria and a well-equipped gymnasium are located on this 23rd floor of this premiere residential tower.
