Kalpataru Ltd acquires rights for housing society redevelopment in Lokhandwala, Mumbai with significant revenue potential. Multiple redevelopment projects in progress in Mumbai suburbs. Market achieves record highs despite rising property prices. Realty developer Kalpataru Ltd has acquired the rights to redevelop a large housing society spread over nearly 4 acres in Mumbai’s western suburb Andheri’s Lokhandwala locality, said persons with direct knowledge of the development. The proposed redevelopment project has a total estimated development of over 8 lakh sq ft including 5 lakh sq ft saleable area with revenue potential of over Rs 2,100 crore. The entire layout currently has a total 12 residential buildings housing 290 apartments spread over 1.90 lakh sq ft. The redevelopment project entails rehousing and providing a total 3 lakh sq ft redeveloped space. The company has inked the development agreement for this redevelopment project that is expected to be completed in four years. “The developer is in the process of chalking out a plan including specific layout and design of the project that will have an uninhibited view of mangroves,” said one of the persons mentioned above. In June, ET reported that Kalpataru acquired the rights to redevelop a housing society spread over nearly 6 acres in Mumbai’s Borivali suburb and is planning to invest around Rs 700 crore to develop an over 700,000 sq ft residential project here. This project involving redevelopment of the Yoganand Co-Operative Housing Society, which currently accommodates nearly 400 residents, is expected to be completed in 3-4 years. The project is estimated to generate revenue worth Rs 1,300 crore based on the current business assumptions, said property consultants. ET’s email query to Kalpataru remained unanswered until the time of going to press. Over the past few years, several realty developers have reworked their business strategies to focus on asset-light models, such as joint development and development management agreements. Real estate projects involving the redevelopment of old housing societies and rehabilitation are the mainstay of the Mumbai region’s property market, as the land-starved city and its peripheral areas have few vacant land parcels. In July, the government of Maharashtra said that a member of a housing society that undergoes redevelopment need not pay stamp duty on the allotted permanent accommodation as part of the project. Following this, the member of the housing society undergoing redevelopment is expected to pay only Rs 100 as stamp duty, while the principal agreement between the development and the housing society will be charged as per the conveyance. The state government’s decision is expected to help push the redevelopment of many old and dilapidated housing societies across key cities in the state. The Mumbai property market has continued its record-setting spree to surpass all benchmarks and scale a new all-time high almost every month, despite higher interest rates and rising property prices. Luxury, premium, and mid-income segment properties are the ones driving this performance. The country’s commercial capital has been achieving a new peak in terms of both property registration and the state exchequer’s revenue collection through stamp duty charges.
