Mumbaikars to get a global city in Palava


Lodha Group, the country’s largest developer, presented “Palava”- Mumbai’s sister city and the ‘City of Opportunity’. Palava is designed to be amongst the world’s top 50 most live-able cities, with every aspect of it being bench-marked against global criteria. This includes a vibrant business environment, outstanding educational and healthcare facilities, unparalleled cultural and sports infrastructure, and safe public spaces, in addition to high quality residences at affordable prices for its citizens. Derived from the Sanskrit work ‘palav’ (budding flower), Palava will be a city with endless possibilities, built to help its people flourish and exceed their potential in every aspect of their lives. Indeed, Palava aims to be the model for 21st century urbanization in India where citizens, administrators and developers come together to create world-class opportunities of growth and prosperity for all.

Just 20 min from the Navi Mumbai International Airport, a short drive from the key employment hubs of Thane, Navi Mumbai and Kalyan, and now, with the new Eastern Freeway, just about 60 minutes (40 kms) from the Southern tip of Mumbai, Palava is located at the epicentre of business and provides a holistic, urban environment which will set the standard for 21st century living in India.

Unveiling Palava, Abhinandan Lodha, Deputy Managing Director, Lodha Group, said, “Today, with over 20,000 residential units sold in just over 3 years, Palava shows the need for high quality middle income housing in MMR. This number is expected to rise to 1,00,000 units by 2025. This city already has much that one could hope for with the highest percentage of green space compared to any major city in the world and a range of already operational world class education and sports facilities. Over the last 5 years, we have tapped into world-renowned experts on urban planning and adopted best practices from around the world to ensure that Palava is a city built to last. Our aim is to offer large numbers of affordable homes in an environment where people can live their lives to the fullest and enjoy opportunities which are on par with any other global city.”

With over 3.5 lakh job openings (by 2025), Palava aims to be a city that encourages enterprising people and provides businesses with the environment they need to grow and create high quality jobs. It will also be home to a world-class multi-disciplinary university, an Olympic Sports Complex, a vibrant Centre for Arts and Culture, lakefront and river-front plazas, high street retail and a 100-acre Central Park.

World renowned star icon and acting legend Amitabh Bachchan, First Citizen of Palava, said, “I’ve travelled to many cities across the world and discovered one fundamental truth: great cities are those that offer great opportunities. Mumbai has given me the platform to grow personally and professionally for 5 decades now and I have seen this economic powerhouse expand beyond imagination. Taking this momentum further is Palava, Mumbai’s sister city that offers well-rounded and fulfilling lives to its citizens by enabling economic prosperity and creating an inspiring social and cultural environment. It will be a place where families lead rich and varied lives, businesses flourish, students dream bigger, and athletes go farther than ever before. In Palava you will find something new at every corner. It is a city that will bring out the best in its people.”
