My Daughter, My Pride!

Daughters are said to be the apple of their father’s eyes and the star of every mother’s sky. What started off as an English tradition many centuries ago, was beginning to lose it charm because of modernity. Lately this day has gained a lot of popularity worldwide and now is being celebrated once again as the special day when parents treat their daughters as princesses for bringing happiness into their lives. In India too, the value and importance of having a daughter is increasing, making Daughter’s Day a popular occasion where the daughters of the country are celebrated.

Happy Daughters Day

Happy Daughters Day

At Rustomjee, we strongly believe that every daughter is a blessing sent from God and they should be made to feel loved not just one day but every day. This year, we decided to make the daughters at Rustomjee, feel super special and shine by dedicating a week full of fun surprises and celebrations.

How did we do it?

Simple. We surprised them by getting their moms to come to office and spend some quality time over few gup-shup and Ghar Ka Khaana. We asked them to tell us what makes daughters so special and to share one fond memory they have with their parents. We also did the same with their parents, by asking them to share some love for their daughters. But that was not it.

In return what we got was a lot of good wishes with thankyous and big, big smiles that lasted through the week. Below is just a short video on how it all went.

We further amplified it by making it into a cool contest on Twitter where we asked our followers to tell us what makes daughter so special with the #MyDaughterMyPride. The responses we received were phenomenal and a lot of people thought the contest was an amazing idea. Here is just the glimpse of a few tweets we got.

The winners will get to enjoy a lovely meal with their daughters at the Renaissance Convention Centre Hotel at Powai, while the other participants will get gift vouchers from Flipkart.

For us, it was a mission accomplished and a great experience of sharing happiness with people at work and everywhere.

Rustomjee Ozone, Malad

Rustomjee Ozone, Malad

Malad is a western suburb which has evolved in the last 10 years with the growth of Mumbai. A sea change from the East Indian Catholic village that it was traditionally, Malad is now recognised as one of the new residential and commercial hubs of the city.

Though Malad West is the more developed and lucrative investment option, the East part of the locality has also recently developed.

Malad enjoys connectivity to other Western suburbs such as Goregaon and Andheri. Access to the Western Express Highway and the Eastern Express Highway has brought this area into favour.

Rustomjee is coming up with two projects, Rustomjee Ozone and Rustomjee Elanza both located on Goregaon – Malad Link Road. These projects have already announced possession. More projects are expected to be announced.

High-rise construction along the city’s coastline could pick up pace, with the state government on redevelopment of old and dilapidated cessed building in coastal belts. Such on-going redevelopment projects will be entitled to higher FSI of 2.5 instead of the current 2. This means that for every square metre of plot area, there can be 2.5sqm of built-up space?

A defining feature of the real estate sector has been a steady rise in the number of young guns riding high in the business. Many have taken the plunge in their 20’s and early 30’s, endured the risk and challenges of growing their business, and through inspirations and a lot of perspiration succeeded in the sector. Corporate ideas such as professionalism, innovation, transparency, to list a few, are part of the industry’s everyday jargon now.

The real estate sector is witnessing a change in perspective, as the newer generation brings with it a fresh wave of ideas based on professionalism and innovation, thus lending a corporate identity.

Historically, Mumbai has not just been the financial capital of India but also the’luxury capital’ of the country.

Mumbai’s strong real estate market fundamentals are reflected in all segments, from office space and luxury retail, to luxury housing. Although the port city is constrained for space, it continues to dominate other property markets across India and remains the first choice for luxury brands, film stars, multinational and global conglomerates.

TOI: Better now than never

From the second quarter of 2009 to the same quarter in 2013, residential real estate prices in Mumbai have increased by 66 per cent.

The past couple of years saw the city expanding towards the suburbs due to the soaring real estate prices, space crunch and increase in demand for housing. “For home buyers, turning to the suburbs of Mumbai and upcoming areas like Virar and Thane, is a more affordable bet. One should currently look at owning a house in the suburbs. Owing to improved infrastructure, prices are expected to appreciate further here in the long term,” says Percy Chowdhry, Director, Rustomjee
