How Goregaon has changed the face of Mumbai suburbs
There’s a new ‘BKC’ for Mumbaikars to aspire to reach, and it’s set right in the middle of the city. It’s unusually well connected by rail and road, has both plenty of greenery as well as a view of the Arabian Sea, and can boast of some of the city’s most elite malls. With its prime location in the centre of the city’s IT and financial hubs, and the multitude of beautiful high-rise building projects springing up, it’s no wonder that builders and developers in Mumbai have been flocking to get a piece of the freshly baked pie that is Goregoan.
Once known mainly for its famous 'Aarey' and 'Mahananda' dairies, Goregoan made good use of the 4000 or so acres of dairy land, which is now being referred to as the Green Lungs of suburban Mumbai. The green cover, combined with a comparatively lower population density and its proximity to the south-western side of the Sanjay Gandhi National Park, has led to a noticeable coolness in the air in Goregaon, with air quality that is the envy of heavily inhabited neighbourhoods like Andheri and Malad.
Nestled within Goregaon’s 3000 hectares of land is a quietly impressive list of achievements:
The best connectivity in the city…Goregoan is cosily ensconced between the Western Express Highway, SV Road, and the Lokhandwala-Malad and the Jogeshwari-Vikhroli Link Roads. In addition to an ultra-modern railway station and 2 bus terminuses, Goregaon lies just 8 to 10 km away from both the international and domestic airports. How much closer to convenience can one get?
Some of the finest luxury properties in Mumbai, which have taken advantage of the benefits of vertical development to create stunning architectural marvels replete with landscaped gardens, pools decks, lavish clubhouses and gazebos. Yes, almost all the leading real estate companies In Mumbai have luxury residential projects under construction in Goregaon. There are stunning 2 and 3 BHK flats available at a wide variety of price ranges.

The savvy shopper has international fashion brands, haute couture, and bespoke tailoring right at her disposal.
Goregaon’s convenient proximity to IT, media and BPO hubs is just the icing on the cake.

Goregaon’s wide roads and planned layouts ensure a more comfortable standard of living and make it the perfect ecosystem for professionals as well as families.
The Goregaon of today combines the best of homely, residential Bandra and posh, sophisticated Bandra Kurla Complex, with real estate prices for residential projects In Goregaon West that are a fraction of what one would pay at either of the two locations. And why wouldn’t you want to live where you’re a hop, skip and a jump away from the most ‘happening’ part of Mumbai, while still savouring the unsullied natural beauty, eye-catching landscapes, and some of the most luxurious homes in Mumbai?
