Sheth Avante is the latest residential project coming up in Kanjurmarg West. This quiet, green suburb, neighbour to Powai and Vikhroli, has been a sought after town for real estate development, both, for residential and commercial developments. It proximity to commercial hubs of Powai, Vikhroli and Ghatkopar have made it an easy choice for both developers and customers looking to settle close to workplaces.
The Sheth Group is one of the leading developers in Mumbai and its roster of recent developments like Sheth Avalon in Thane and Sheth Beaumonte in Sion East tell the story of its growth. Sheth Group is designing luxury residential projects with premium amenities for those who appreciate the finer things in life. This theme is pretty evident in its latest offering – Sheth Avante – as well which is being developed in partnership with Emami Group.
Location & Connectivity
Sheth Avante enjoys a premium location – on the arterial LBS Road which connects the central Mumbai suburbs from Sion-Kurla in the south to Thane in the north. This road is also vital due its connectivity to major roads like the Jogeshwari-Vikhroli Link Road (JVLR), Santa Cruz-Chembur Link Road (SCLR) and the Eastern Express Highway. Via these major routes, Kanjurmarg enjoys connectivity to the rest of the city and the nearby business hubs of Vikhroli, Powai and Andheri-SEEPZ. Location is clearly the winning USP of Sheth Avante!
Its prime location also means good connectivity via BEST buses, autos, private cabs and buses as well as the local railway – Kanjurmarg station is 5 mins from the site!
Sheth Avante is proposed as a standalone 26 storey tower with 3 wings on 1.9 acres of prime land. There will be 335 units in all of 1, 1.5, 2 and 3 BHK apartments to suit every need and budget. The structure includes 5 podium levels. 4 will be for parking and the topmost podium will be the eco deck packed with amenities. The layout of the project is from west to east as also the wings C-B-A with A being the furthest from the entrance. Entrance and exit will happen from LBS Road which is the western-most point.
Sheth Avante: Apartment Layout & Price
Wing A’s typical floor plan includes 5 lifts and 6 apartments per floor. These include equal number of 1 and 1.5 BHK apartments. Wing B is designed to have 6 apartments per floor as well, 3 each of 1 and 2 BHK. Wing C has just 4 units per floor as it contains the bigger apartments – 2 each of 2 and 3 BHK apartments and will correspondingly have only 3 lifts. The following are the configurations of the apartments:
|Wing||Unit||Carpet Area (in sq. ft.)|
|A||1 BHK||425, 427|
|A||1.5 BHK||525, 526|
|B||1 BHK||426, 428, 429|
|B||2 BHK||526, 527, 709|
|C||2 BHK||708, 710|
As you can see, there are slight variations in all the types of apartments, especially the 2 BHK units where buyers can choose between a smaller or larger variant to suit their need and budget. All the apartments have 2 bathrooms, including an en-suite in the master bedroom and a common one. The 3 BHK units have 3 bathrooms, 2 of them are en-suite. All apartments also have a small chajja across all rooms. Apartments in Sheth Avante are being sold at Rs. 12,100 per sq. ft. for the 3 BHK units and at Rs. 12,500 per sq. ft. for the others. This price is still lower than the current rate in Kanjurmarg of Rs. 12,900 – 13,000 per sq. ft.
Amenities and Features
Sheth Avante is being developed on a relatively smaller land parcel. Hence, the design cleverly packs all the premium amenities vertically. Most of the amenities are provided on the eco deck which is also the highest podium level. Here, residents can enjoy podium garden, sitting area for senior citizens, amphitheatre, pool, gym, sauna and a recreation hall with attached pantry which can also serve as a multi-purpose hall to host events. The kids play area is also on this level and includes toys, sand pit and a jungle gym.
Some amenities are also available on the ground level. These include landscaped gardens, multi-purpose courts, cricket net and a walking track.
The highlight of Sheth Avante is the long connected terrace, across the three wings which allows provision of incredible amenities like star gazing deck, reflexology path, meditation zone, projector viewing area for movies and a walking path in addition to the incredible views of the city as well as distant Airoli creek and mangroves.
Its prime location mean most necessary civic amenities and infrastructure are also in close proximity to Sheth Avante. These include D-Mart for groceries and daily essentials, which is right next door. Top educational institutions such as Podar International, St. Xavier’s School and Junior College, Bombay Scottish, IBS Business School and IIT Bombay are all within 20 minutes of Avante; R-City Mall and Galleria are a mere 15 minutes away; Carnival Cinemas is a convenient 5 minutes walking distance away; and L. H. Hiranandani and Fortis Hospital are both 15 minutes from Avante.
Sheth Avante in Kanjurmarg is a compact yet premium offering which is already 60-65% booked. 100 units were sold during pre-launch which happened in 2016. Currently the excavation of Wings A and B have begun and possession is expected in December 2020. The developer has received the Commencement Certificate and has applied for its registration within the deadline.
