After commuting 2 hours each day to a 9 to 5 job – all Mr Rajan Iyer wanted in his building was a jogging track to improve his health, a large play park for his kids to run around in, and a good mall nearby for his wife to shop her heart out with him on weekends. So, he finally took that leap by shifting homes from Mumbai suburban to the green environ of Thane – finally saying a happy goodbye to cramped spaces, traffic jam woes, and potholed roads. It was certainly a much better lifestyle indeed!
While Mumbai is often referred to as ‘the city of dreams’, the satellite city of Thane has truly developed itself into one through the rigorous work of the last three decades! What was once an industrial town changed soon enough into an entire city as a large number of residential properties cropped up to house the now moving population from Mumbai.
The reason? They were searching for a better lifestyle! So, read ahead as we give you the top reasons why buying a residential property in Thane can be quite beneficial for you.
1) You can avoid the over-saturated townships of Suburban Mumbai
According to the last 2011 census – the population of Thane rose by a soaring 35.94% from around 81 lakhs in 2001 to 1.10 crore in 2011. Within this ten year span, around 8 lakh people moved from South Mumbai alone! (as per an article in RealtyNxt) Such a spectacular rise of Thane is due to the incredible work by the state government that has helped develop this city with an aim to decongestion areas of Mumbai.
Since the last two decades – these numbers show that much of the populace of Mumbai has been moving to the open areas of Thane as the city offers spacious homes, better connectivity, and affordable real estate prices when compared to Mumbai.
2) A mix of residential and commercial spaces works well for families
Over the years, a host of reputed commercial and residential developers have built large townships and business complexes in Thane. Besides residential high rises – the presence of commercial IT parks ensures that there are numerous employment opportunities available for people living in Thane.
For your family – it means that your kids can go to top-notch schools and you may work at nearby workplaces that may not require a traffic jam to get there. Moreover, most of the city’s neighbourhoods are equipped with the best hospitals, shopping malls, clubhouses, restaurants, and more so that you and your family may enjoy a luxurious lifestyle in Thane.
3) Easy connectivity across all parts of Mumbai
Living in Thane truly means that you may now be able to access all parts of Mumbai and Navi Mumbai. By road – you may enjoy hassle free travel through the Easter Express Highway, Ghodbunder Road, JVLR, SCLR, and Thane Belapur Highway. The Central and Harbour railway lines also quickly connect you with most suburbs in the city. Better transport with lower traffic woes as compared to suburban Mumbai is one of the top reasons why there is a rising number of upcoming projects in Thane.
4) Infrastructure projects ensure the future progress of Thane
With infrastructure projects worth around 50,000 crores all set to be completed in the next few years – this city may enjoy even better connectivity than ever seen in the state before!
One of the top projects is the Thane-Wadala metro line, which is expected to reduce the travel time by half! With 32 stations between Kasarvadavali to Wadala, 10 of which will be within Thane itself – this is one mega project that will play a significant role in reducing traffic congestion.
Some other proposed projects are the construction of the Thane-Diva Road, the flyover at Bhiwandi bypass, Thane Borivali underground tunnel, and metro-3 project to Kalyan and Mira – Bhayander. Moreover, the RoRo service is another exciting project that will provide water transport to areas of South Mumbai and Navi Mumbai, which will significantly reduce your travel time!
5) The advantage of living in a green environment
With around 35 water bodies in the city – it’s no wonder that Thane is called ‘the city of lakes’! The famous Upvan lake, the nature trails of the Sanjay Gandhi National Park, and the majestic Yeoor hills are all within the periphery of Thane. This means that you may not have to go too far from the city to enjoy rejuvenating treks and serene hilly views.
Moreover – There are numerous parks and promenades built within the city so that you may enjoy fun picnics with your family and friends. Another advantage is that Thane also provides you quick access to nearby getaways around Mumbai.
6) The presence of desirable locales such as ‘Thane Platinum Belt’
