Mumbai’s real estate landscape is fast evolving, particularly if you take emerging micro markets and townships into account. Being India’s costliest city for real estate, Mumbai has witnessed a deluge of buyers shifting towards peripheral zones in search of comparatively affordable housing options and better amenities. Navi Mumbai has been a major beneficiary of this paradigm shift along with Thane. Together, these two housing markets contribute a major portion of overall real estate sales in Maximum City’s property sector.

Kharghar is one of the fastest growing residential real estate hotspots in Mumbai and is perceived by many as Navi Mumbai’s Crown Jewel for its infrastructure, amenities, quality of life and rapidly emerging housing options.

Strategic location and connectivity are key USPs for the locality

Kharghar is one of the most developed areas in Navi Mumbai with the initial thrusts being given in the early 90s and it has since gone through a major transformation of sorts. Kharghar offers several locational benefits to residents and this is a major reason behind its burgeoning popularity in the residential real estate segment.

Kharghar is located beside two key highways and is located in close proximity to the CBD (Central Business District) in Belapur as well. Mumbai city is only an hour away from Kharghar even during peak office hours. Kharghar is also well connected to several destinations via the Harbour Line of the Mumbai railway network. The upcoming Navi Mumbai Metro network (Phase 1) should have at least 7 stops only in Kharghar as per the proposed plan.

The Sion-Panvel Expressway links Mumbai and Navi-Mumbai within a radius of 45 minutes and is easily accessible from Kharghar. The proposed 8-lane tunnel through Turbhe and the Coastal Road going to the Airport will definitely boost overall connectivity. Kharghar also offers easy access to the Mumbai-Pune Expressway which starts from Kalamboli. The Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport is situated just 35 kilometres away from Kharghar. This takes an hour through the Eastern Freeway. The SCLR (Santacruz-Chembur Link Road) connects Kharghar to the Lokmanya Tilak Terminus in approximately 45 minutes. There is good road access to Thane, Pune, Nashik and Kalyan. NMMT buses are readily available along with BEST buses which run till Vashi, Dadar, Sion and Ghatkopar among other locations.

Proposed Infrastructural Developments to boost connectivity and real estate

Kharghar will benefit in the near future from multiple mega infrastructural developments which will undoubtedly boost overall connectivity while also helping increase real estate demand and values alike. Here’s taking a look at some of the major projects on the anvil-

  • Navi Mumbai Metro Phase 1 between Belapur and Pendhar through Kharghar. The project is expected to be operational soon and is being supervised by CIDCO.
  • New Navi Mumbai International Airport is coming up near Kharghar and will be developed in four phases. The first phase is expected to be completed soon. Proximity to the new airport will boost real estate immensely in Kharghar and other surrounding areas. Kharghar is just 15 km away from the new airport which equates to a drive of 30 minutes approximately.
  • Proposed Sea Link between Sewri and Nhava Sheva will naturally make the new airport easily accessible for residents of Navi Mumbai including Kharghar.
  • Proposed CIDCO Corporate Business Park spanning 140 hectares to come up at Kharghar which will be modelled on the BKC (Bandra-Kurla Complex). This will be developed into a major business district of the future.
  • Hyperloop between Pune and Mumbai will boost infrastructure and connectivity considerably in Kharghar. This will start from Pune through the Mumbai-Pune Expressway and will be able to reach BKC in only 25 minutes via the Navi Mumbai International Airport.

Additionally, the NMMT (Navi Mumbai Municipal Transport) buses can be monitored in real-time via the IITMS (Integrated Intelligent Transport Management System) which was established in the year 2017. Commuters can track all buses via the NMMT App.
