Akshaya Tritiya – An Auspicious Time to Invest in Real Estate

Akshaya Tritiya, the third day of the bright half of Vaishakh, is considered one of the three most sacred days of the year by the Hindus. The word ‘Akshaya’ means imperishable or eternal “that which never diminishes”, the belief is that whatever is begun on this day flourishes and increases in value. As the meaning says, on the day of Akshaya Tritiya people never feel the dearth of happiness or bliss.

This year, 2020, the coronavirus pandemic and the consequent lockdown have put a damper on Akshaya Tritiya celebrations. Traditionally, Akshaya Tritiya is associated with new purchases; anything bought on this auspicious day is believed to be blessed and will augur good luck.

A Sense of Community

Coronavirus has been declared as a pandemic by the WHO – these tiny micro-organisms have brought the whole planet to a virtual stand-still and have stymied the apex species – humans! Today, when we are all under lockdown, amongst the many issues that we are facing, one that stands out is the loss of our socializing. Humans are intrinsically social creatures and being forced into isolation is playing havoc with most people’s minds and sensibilities.

It is at such times when residents of gated communities like Rustomjee’s Urbania, Seasons, Elements…amongst others find themselves at an advantage. In the times of lockdown and quarantine also, the sense of community is heightened. Every person in these developments knows they are not alone – they are facing this situation as a unit. There is help when needed and people cooperating and providing relevant information that keeps everyone in touch with each other even while they are maintaining social distancing. Every resident of the gated community project works towards making life that much easier for all who live there. Some may organize delivery of essential items, others may ensure that the elderly senior citizens living alone do not have to worry about food and medicines; still others may set up on-line challenges and games for kids to interact with their friends on a virtual platform and not get bored.

A common gated perimeter, common facilities, common issues being resolved with a common purpose – that is the sense of community that those in a gated community experience and it in times like these, it is invaluable!

Rustomjee Cares

There are millions of migrant workers across the country that are employed in various sectors and are drawn to the cities in search of work. They are the main segment of the population affected the most by the sudden shutdown of manufacturing units and other activities due to the coronavirus lockdown. With no way of going back to their villages and no support system in the cities, the plight of the migrant workers is pitiable.

The construction sector is one that relies heavily on migrant labour and Rustomjee, ever the thoughtful developer, has taken all the necessary measures to ensure that the labourers who were employed on site at Global City, Virar (W) and Rustomjee Paramount, Khar (W) are well taken care of.

In a well-organized initiative, initially a team of Rustomjee employees, who stayed close to the site, was formed. They provided the management with all the necessary information of laborers living in labor camp and their daily needs. With a clear understanding of the demand and quantum, it was decided to distribute the essentials such as rice, grains and vegetables to all the workers.

Till date, at the labour camp at Rustomjee Global City,Virar(W), the developer has disbursed 500 kg rice, 70 kg grains and over 50 kgs of vegetables such as potatoes to the site laborers. 24 x 7 electricity and water is available to the laborers with the company bearing the full cost to pay the electricity and water charges for the labour camp during this period. Also, to facilitate their need of hygiene, 10 soaps and 8 hand wash bottles were also distributed. All workers have been educated on the importance of maintaining hygiene and following social distancing.

At the site of Rustomjee Paramount,Khar (W), there are 130 migrant labourers whose needs are being taken care of. Every worker has been given a ration every four days which consists of, 3 kgs of rice, 1 kg of wheat, 250 gms of pulses, turmeric powder, chilli powder and 250 ml of Sunflower oil and these will be further be replenished as per need-basis, during the period of COVID-19 lockdown.

Rustomjee Launches Another Innovative Campaign

Rustomjee has always been at the forefront of innovation whether it is in design, concept or branding. An iconoclastic developer, Rustomjee has always set the bar high. This time too, Rustomjee has introduced a novel concept in outdoor advertising and their campaign is nothing short of brilliant.

Picking up on the idea of moving into a new home, Rustomjee has created a campaign which everyone can relate to. The entire process of packing up and moving to a home can be quite an experience and while it may not always be easy to let go of some belongings, moving home is the perfect time to de-clutter and create new memories.

What’s more, with OC ready homes at Global City Virar (W) families can start settling in immediately. No more waiting to start a new life in the 1 and 2 BHK homes which come at very reasonable price points.

Global City is more than just a residential township; it presents an opportunity to live the maximum life. At Avenue D1 there is a 38000 sq ft podium dedicated to project amenities like Box Cricket, Futsal Court, Children’s Play Area, Skating Area, Senior Citizen area with reflexology path, walking cum Jogging Track which is completely ready. This is over and above the other facilities that are a part of the township and include 2.35 lac sq ft Constructed Clubhouse, 12 Acre Yazoo Park (Amusement Park), Rustomjee Cambridge International School, 70- meter wide roads inside the township, Siddhivinayak Temple, Wide Retail Spaces, Fully operational Banks, Shopping Malls, Hospital and Restaurants.

Mr.Percy S. Chowdhry, Director, Rustomjee Group, said of the initiative, “At Rustomjee we believe in constant innovation whether it is in design, concept or branding. What we do is driven by deep rooted understanding of our buyers. The entire premise of the campaign is to underscore the point that Avenue D1 , part of our 200+ acre township in Virar offers ready to move in homes & a list of amenities so every buyer lives the maximum life. The OC ready homes simplify the entire process of buying a home and settling into the dream life, the maximum life. This is why the campaign depicts the actual process that a family would experience – packing boxes, getting rid of clutter and loading up a truck to move into your new home.”

OC Ready Homes at Avenue D1 – Global City, Virar

Rustomjee is pleased to announce that home buyers can now walk into OC ready homes at Avenue D1- Global City, Virar (W). It’s a win-win for home buyers who can take possession and step into their spanking new homes at Global City. These 1 and 2 BHK homes come at very reasonable price starting at Rs 28.52 Lakhs + Taxes. This is a limited period offer and prospective home buyers would be wise to take advantage and become a proud owner of a Rustomjee home right away.

Global City is more than just a residential township; it presents an opportunity to live the maximum life. At Avenue D1 there is a 38000 sq ft podium offering ready amenities like Box Cricket, Futsal Court, Children’s Play Area, Skating Area, Senior Citizen area with reflexology path and walking cum Jogging Track. This is over and above the other ready facilities within the township that include 2.35 lac sq ft Constructed Clubhouse, 12 Acre Yazoo Park (Amusement Park), Rustomjee Cambridge International School, 70 feet wide roads inside the township, Siddhivinayak Temple, Retail Spaces, Banks, ATMs, Hyper Markets, Hospital and Restaurants.

The advantage of living in Global City is further enhanced by the fact that it is located in Virar – one of the well-connected suburbs in the West. With the crushing paucity of budget-friendly projects in the MMR, more developers are looking to Virar to create projects for young families and those looking to relocate from space-starved Mumbai. Even as an investment Virar is ideal with prices seeing appreciation on a year on year basis. Global City offers the best of both worlds – ease of travel to the maximum city and a taste of the maximum life.

According to Mr. Chandresh Mehta, Director, Rustomjee Group, “Global City is one of the landmark projects of Rustomjee which has set the bar really high for township projects. Virar is the perfect location for the township, affording people with excellent connectivity and infrastructure, which is set to improve further. We have taken care to ensure that our residents not only have the benefit of excellent architecture and quality construction that is associated with the Rustomjee name but also to provide them with amenities that ensure an elevated lifestyle. Our OC ready homes with a 38000 sq ft podium of amenities promise life to the maximum for all residents.”

Why Virar?

When it comes to real estate, location is key and as one of the leading developers, Rustomjee has decades of experience of identifying the right location for their projects which will provide residents with all the advantages of connectivity and facilities.

When it comes to connectivity and ease of commute, Virar is connected by road through the national highways 3, 4, 8 and 17 as well as the Western highway. As rail travel is preferred by many, the western line of the suburban railways provides easy access to Mumbai from Virar. Besides, Virar will also be directly connected to some of the key areas of Mumbai through the mass rapid transit network of Metro. Further, the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) now plans to extend the Mumbai Metro Line-9, a 10.5-km corridor between Dahisar and Mira-Bhayander, to Virar.

Infrastructure is developing at a rapid rate and there are several other projects in the pipeline which will lead to improved connectivity. These include the proposed Coastal Road extension up to Virar, proposed extension of Harbour Line Services up to Virar, proposed elevated Western Railway Corridor from Churchgate to Virar as well as the Virar – Panvel – Alibaug Multi- modal Corridor.

The neighborhood has also seen rapid development and in the eastern part of Virar there are developed sectors such as Manvelpada, Phulpada, Chandansar Road and Veer Savarkar Road. The residents have access to Reputed schools such as Rustomjee Cambridge International School, John XXIII Shastri Vidyalaya High School, Expert International High School, Utkarsha Vidyalaya, Virar, College of Arts, Science and Commerce, English High School, MGM Academy High School and Little Fairy Monastery; healthcare centres such as Sanjivani Hospital, Ashwini Hospital, Joshi Children hospital, Sahayog Hospital and Dalvi Hospital; shopping malls and recreational centers. Besides it is in close proximity to Yazoo Park, St. Peters Church, Jain Temple, the famous Arnala and Odi Beach.

Virar has seen a steady increase in realty prices which have appreciated by over 100% in six years. With land and quality projects with reasonable price points being a rarity in Mumbai, more people are looking towards areas like Virar and developers are able to meet their requirements for planned projects with an elevated lifestyle. The result is that Virar is now growing in stature as a residential hub, quite like the development that Thane witnessed in the past.
