Mhada has constructed 2,683 flats spread over 21 buildings, each 23 storey high, for the Economically Weaker Sections (EWS) and Low Income Group at this prime location.
MUMBAI: The Maharashtra Housing Area Development Authority (Mhada), known for providing open spaces, playgrounds and parks, will for the first time also offer a swimming pool, gym, club house and yoga centre for its Middle (MIG) and High Income group (HIG) flat residents.
The first such project is under construction at Goregaon and the lottery will be held in 2025, said Mhada officials.
After several years of litigation, Mhada won back 18 acres of land which abuts the New Link Road at Prem Nagar on one side and is close to the S V Road on the other side. Mhada has constructed 2,683 flats spread over 21 buildings, each 23 storey high, for the Economically Weaker Sections (EWS) and Low Income Group at this prime location. It is also constructing a 35-storey tower for 105 high income and227 middle income flats.
In March this year, Mhada will be holding a lottery for 2,506 EWS and LIG flats. Around 177 flats have been reserved by Mhada as staff quarters for its employees. Lottery for these flats will be held in March, along with MIG and HIG flats in Powai, Vikhroli and Antop Hill. While the flat prices are still to be finalised, Mhada officials said the EWS flats (323 sq feet approx) will be priced at around Rs 35 lakh, and the LIG flats (482 sq feet approx. ) will be priced at around Rs 45 lakh.
“We have improved the quality of tiles, and are ensuring there are no complaints of leakages by ensuring a proper drainage system. We are offering electric charging stations for electric vehicles, solar panels on roof tops and sprinklers in every flat as a fire fighting measure,” said K K Katwate, deputy chief engineer (West), Mumbai Board.
The 18-acre layout has been divided into two plots — A and B. Plot A is on New Link Road and within walking distance of the newly inaugurated Metro Line 2A (Pahadi Goregaon Metro station), while Plot B is close to S V Road and is just a five-minute walking distance from the Goregaon railway station. Plot B is where a 35-storey tower for HIG and MIG flats with a swimming pool, three-storey podium parking and other amenities is being constructed.
