Panvel’s residential market has been advancing owing to commercial expansion, fast-paced infrastructure development, and improving supply of compact-homes. 99acres.com explores the factors driving the realty market here. Have a look at the report card.

Panvel’s real estate market has continued growing at a uniform pace in the last few years. The residential segment in the city has witnessed a boom, with a majority of developers foraying into structured townships and affordable housing projects. Residential launches witnessed marked improvement as compared to the previous few quarters. Over 28,000 new housing units have been launched in Panvel since 2013.

In the last five years or so, the capital values have almost doubled. In April 2013, average property prices in the residential segment were around Rs 3,600 per sq ft.

Panvel houses a plethora of open land spaces and hence several affordable-to-mid range housing projects are being developed. Once the Navi Mumbai airport becomes operational, the city will offer employment to at least one lakh people. This would ultimately result in more demand for residential and commercial units, shares Pradeep Mehta, Managing Director, JSM Buildcare Pvt Ltd.

Equipped with strategically placed physical infrastructure, Panvel has turned out as one of the viable affordable alternatives to other areas in Mumbai where property prices have skyrocketed over the past few years. Considering the infrastructure projects planned in the city, housing prices are expected to go north by 11-14 percent in the next five to seven years.

Upcoming infrastructure projects to uplift the realty market

The region is well-connected to and easily approachable by major areas in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) via the Sion-Panvel Highway, Mumbai suburban railway, National Highway (NH) 66, and NH 48.

Mumbai Trans Harbour Link, Navi Mumbai International Airport, and Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT)-Panvel corridor are some of the key infrastructure projects that are all set to bolster the city’s real estate growth.

  • A plan to develop IT Park on about 25 acres of land situated at Panvel in also on cards. The project has already gained approval from the concerned authorities. The IT Park will have a constructible area of about 2.5 to 3 million sq ft.
  • A Detailed Project Report (DPR) of the CSMT-Panvel fast corridor is awaiting approval. The action is expected to be granted soon.
  • The implementing agency, CIDCO is expecting to commission the first phase of the proposed international airport, Navi Mumbai International Airport, spread across over 2,000 hectares, by December 2019. The phase includes a terminal building and a runway.

Its proximity to major commercial areas in Navi Mumbai, including Koparkhairaine, Airoli, and Taloja uplift the overall realty landscape of the city. Superior connectivity to Uran and Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) is also driving demand in the city.
