As the commercial capital of India, it comes as no surprise that most of the business and commercial offices in India, find their home in Mumbai. Business or commercial districts comprise of private and government offices, business conglomerates, and the likes. Some of the well-known hubs in the city include:
- CBD in Churchgate, Fort and Nariman Point
- Central Mumbai, comprising of localities like Worli, Lower Parel and Prabhadevi
- The Western Suburbs with places like Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC), Santacruz East and Goregaon
- Eastern Suburbs like Vikhroli, Bhandup and Powai
- The I.T. Hubs comprising of Thane and Navi Mumbai
However, there’s a new commercial hub making its mark in the city – the eastern districts of Andheri. Comprising of upcoming and well-known I.T. hubs, media houses and financial companies, Andheri East is the next big thing. A number of factors come into play here.
Andheri East enjoys connectivity to all major routes and railways. From the Jogeshwari Vikhroli Link Road (JVLR), to the Andheri Kurla Link Road; the VersovaAndheri-Ghatkopar metro line, and the Western railway line at the Andheri Station – Andheri East brings in office-goers from far flung parts of the city.
- Cost Advantage
The region also boasts of a massive cost advantage over other traditional commercial hubs like Bandra Kurla Complex and Nariman Point, as the latter have been outpricing themselves over the years. The commercial capital values, as well as the lease rentals vary greatly as compared to the other hubs.
- Host to Various Disciplines
Andheri East has slowly yet steadily started to play host to a number of disciplines, including yet not restricted to financial centres and bank offices, I.T. and ITeS, manufacturing houses, media agencies, retail centres and various other MNCs.
- Upcoming Metro Projects
The introduction of Mumbai’s extensive upcoming metro projects, couldn’t have come at a better time. With proposed lines connecting Dahisar to D.N. Nagar (Andheri), Colaba to Bandra and SEEPZ (Andheri), and Andheri East to Dahisar East, Andheri East now finds itself in an extremely favourable position to be in.
Club the above-mentioned reasons with upcoming and established residential projects like Raheja, ACME and Lodha in the region, Andheri East has become a land of possibilities!
