Commercial Properties in BKC – The Best Option to Decongest Mumbai

A novel idea to change the cityscape
Mumbai has remained the financial capital of India and is known for its industries and financial institutions. There have been a setback to the textile industry due to trade unions, which existed a decade ago, but then the life in Mumbai has moved on and many of these textile premises have now become residential and commercial complexes bringing a change to the cityscape of Mumbai. In spite of all these developments the burgeoning population of Mumbai and the rapid industrialization needs a lot more attention. The core city has been suffering from influx of people coming for jobs from neighboring states and the infrastructure, which was then created, is becoming problematic and not sufficient.

The idea of creating a new business complex in Mumbai was to ease the congestion and the expansion of South Mumbai where a spurt in establishment of commercial activities and business were witnessed. Thus, the MMRDA gave shape to a distinct micro market. The Bandra Kurla complex with the expectation to ensure that further development of business will take place in this segment. Though the economy world over has not been that encouraging this year affecting the real estate sector, the commercial properties in BKC has been showing positive results. Many organizations from the financial sector including the main offices of commercial and nationalized banks to the national stock exchange have made it their hub.
Property demand in BKC

However, it has been observed that the demand is more for large commercial spaces than for the smaller ones. Though some of the properties in this complex are owned by corporate which have made substantial profits out of their operations, many are leased by corporate which have begun to realize that this is going to be the most preferred destination for commercial activities in Mumbai in the near future. Work is in progress in some of the upcoming projects in BKC which only substantiate that the commercial properties in BKC hold a lot of promises for the future.

As such, the rentals in these complexes have begun to stabilize and it is likely that the recent decisions in parliament on the implementation of FDI in retail and proposals for FDI in real estate, the policy of which is still to be seen may infuse more funds to the market triggering an increase in commercial activity.
