Global City, Virar: A dream come true!
Written by Chandresh D. Mehta, Director, Rustomjee
The demand and growth of condominiums, apartment complexes and gated communities has seen a substantial rise due to the limited availability of land and the huge gap between demand and supply for homes. The continually increasing population of Mumbai has also triggered the demand for both owned as well as rented accommodations.
What also plays a major role is the higher disposable income, ever improving lifestyles, increasing aspiration levels and expanding knowledge on global trends have made the present new-generation property buyers more conscious about the properties they want to invest in and also live in.
Naturally, property buyers are looking for state-of-the-art construction quality, better civic amenities and social infrastructure to invest their hard earned money in that gives them peace of mind and better living standards.
To cater to the needs of this discerning home buyers, Global City is all set to bring a paradigm shift in the Mumbai metropolitan region’s realty sector.
Being developed at Virar (West), Global City aims to be a new benchmark in urban trappings by offering an ideal location and providing enriching lifestyle experience for Mumbaikars.
The Global City, being built jointly by Rustomjee and Evershine Builders—with their combined experience of over decades, will bring together a sprawling layout development of 217 acres—ushering the residents into a world-class living experience.
The joint initiative by Rustomjee and Evershine Builders demonstrates a positive impact on improving the urban living environment. Located a mere 1.5 kms away from the suburban Virar station, it will have a unique connectivity across various regions in the entire Mumbai Metropolitan Region, this thanks to slew of infrastructure projects unveiled by the administration. Flyovers and skywalks are being constructed at Virar station and there will also be an increased frequency of suburban local trains from Virar up to Churchgate.
The infrastructure at Global City is unmatched and adequate care has been taken to provide civic amenities to its residents. Renowned professors from VJTI have contributed to the planning of infrastructure for Global City, blending the necessities of residents and scientific requirements.
Each of these sectors come with large open recreational and green spaces to give the home owners a sense of vibrant ambience. The project offers home owners the convenience of choosing from homes ranging from 1, 2, 3 & 4 BHK. These Homes have been designed with a great deal of planning and detailing keeping the comfort for a Home-owner in mind.
The buildings are earthquake-resistant and have been positioned in such a way so as to enable maximum cross ventilation for natural light and breeze (to be included post confirmation).
To ensure that residents of Global City live in world class conditions, all forms of basic infrastructure has been planned and is being executed, including roads that are 75 - 100 feet wider, water & power supply, 3 sewerage treatment plants that will allow recycling of water etc. A single dedicated sewage treatment plant is expected to generate 1.20 lacs water per day for flush & gardening.
Besides this, around 60,000 plantations will provide a clean and lush green environment to the residents for sustainable development.
Adequate care has been taken by way of underground drainage system to ensure that there is no more water-logging during monsoons which proves to be a hassle to residents.
Apart from the civic amenities, Global City will offer the best in terms of social infrastructure. Education being a priority, it has proposed schools, college as well as a stadium size playground.
The Global City at Virar is a unique initiative representing an improved urban living environment for home aspiring citizens from the Mumbai Metropolitan Region.
The Global City is committed to preserve open space and parkland areas—providing excellent recreational opportunities to its residents. Over 12 acres of the areas have been earmarked for recreation, boasting of activities ranging from joy rides, carousels, laser shows dancing fountains and much more.
The Global City also offers nearly one lakh sq. ft of club house with an Olympic-size swimming pool, a Jacuzzi, a hi-tech gymnasium, a squash court, a tennis court and a lavish banquet hall.
Apart from residential and recreational activities, there will also be a shopping area with a multiplex, food courts and an entertainment centre.
Global City provides a wide spectrum of amenities and facilities which are world class and are simply unmatched by surrounding areas.
While Rustomjee and Evershine Builders have taken adequate care for the residents, who will be moving in after the completion of the project, as a unique CSR initiative, the developers built a labour camp at the project site with a capacity of 2000 workers to live in. All the basic amenities are being provided to the workers staying at this place.
It is our firm belief that the state-of-the-art infrastructure and civic amenities will bring an enriching living experience for the home owners in Global City.
We are confident that Global City will prove that architectural vision and talent can create sanctuaries of tranquility and efficiency, right in the middle of urban chaos.
Rustomjee and Evershine Builders are committed to a sustainable housing development. The concept of sustainability hinges on meeting the needs of today without compromising on the needs of our future generations. As housing stands at the center of our lives and lifestyles, sustainable housing offers healthier housing leading to better living.
Global City is an attempt to make lasting changes in improving the urban living environment. The project, which will be housing 15,000 families, has been designed with meticulous planning and thorough detail keeping in mind the most important aspect which is the comfort and convenience for home-owners.
