Panvel which already offers excellent railroad connectivity to the main city—Mumbai has proven to be the most sought after region for affordable housing. It is connected to both, the central and western lines, it is also known as the gateway to the Konkan region, easing the commute to the other states of India. Located close to Mumbai-Pune Expressway and the Sion-Panvel Expressway, travelling to either Mumbai or Pune is quite convenient.
Planned development and Infrastructure has been a major differentiator for the region compared to the other parts of the city. The commencement of the work of the infrastructure developments like the Navi Mumbai International Airport and the Mumbai Trans-Harbour Link are the factors that are driving the demand for residential and commercial real estate in this new growth corridor.The first pier of the ambitious Mumbai Trans Harbour Link was built at Sewri in May 2019 and 11 percent of the bridge construction work is completed so far.
The project, which began in March 2017, has been divided into three packages and is expected to be complete by September 2022.The Navi Mumbai International Airport is likely to finish by mid 2020 and the operations are expected to start in 2023.JNPT is already on a major expansion drive, with some key projects already in the works like the mega fourth terminal, developing a centralized parking plaza, improving the port connecting roads and widening of highways and development of coastal berth.
The Panvel Karjat local railway line has already started and the suburbanization of the track is underway. In recent times, the NAINA region has emerged as the hub of affordable housing due to comparatively lower prices, good road and railway connectivity and growing infrastructure.
According to recent studies, there is a huge demand for housing across metro cities where we see a large influx of people coming, in search of jobs and a better livelihood. Supporting the economic upliftment of the region, Wadhwa Wise City is expected to become a viable option for the homebuyers.
