Ghodbunder Road is one of the major roads leading out of Thane, a suburb of Mumbai in the Mumbai Metropolitan area. It connects the Eastern Express Highway and the Western Express Highway via Thane. In addition, the road provides connectivity to Mira Road from Thane, and localities like Mulund, Bhandup and Ghatkopar are also accessible from this locality.
It is approximately 20 km long and links the two main arterial roads of Mumbai – the Eastern Express Highway which starts at Sion and terminates at Thane and the Western Express Highway which starts at Bandra (East) and becomes the National Highway leading to Gujarat. Several landmark projects are coming up in areas like proposed Water Park, upcoming Metro station near Vadala and work for flyovers and bridge has also started.
The area has some good upcoming residential projects by Hiranandani Group, DB Realty, Runwal Housing, Seth Developers, Neelkanth Group, Lalani Builders, Shree Constructions, Cosmos Group, among others. Maximum people are looking for homes within a budget of Rs 30 to Rs 50 lakh. The accessibility of the area from international airport, schools, restaurants and hotels makes it the preferred choice of many buyers.
Sanjay Nagaonkar of Ranuja Poperties said 3 to 4 years ago, Ghodbunder Road was categorised as green forest area and now 40% of the area is cleared and deployed as a residential and commercial zone. “The locality is seeing a lot of commercial growth like upcoming MGM IT park, new corporate office, retails and malls, banks, car showrooms, call centres, BPO etc.” This locality is centrally connected to Mumbai Central and Western suburbs and also connects to Bhiwandi, Navi Mumbai and Vasai, he added.
Some residential complexes along/off this road are Rutu Enclave, Hiranandani Estate, Hiranandani Meadows, Cosmos Residency, Hyde Park Residency, Lodha Casa Univis (under construction), Pride Park and Residency, and Vijay Vilas, among others.
