Project: Nirmal Lifestyle, Lifestyle City, Kalyan (West) Developer: Nirmal Lifestyle Date of Visit: April 2, 2009
Nirmal Lifestyle has recently launched a premium residential project near Shahad, Kalyan West named ‘Lifestyle City’. Spread across 150 acres, the initial launch of the project consists of a total of approx 840 units spread across 7 buildings each of 15-storey. Based on our visit to the property site and a look at the sample flat, we have the following observations:
Project Location: The project is in Vadavli village, between Shahad and Ambivali. The project is accessible from Shahad railway station which is at around 2.5 kms. It took us 9 minutes from Shahad railway station by auto to reach the site location which cost us Rs.30/-. If one was to travel on foot from the station to the project site, it would take close to 30 minutes. Ambivali station is under 2 kms from the project however due to lack of appropriate transport facilities Shahad is a preferred alternative to get to the project. The developer is to provide bus-service from the project to Shahad, Ambivali and Kalyan railway stations which would take care of the accessibility issue.
The area around the site is currently consisting of only small hutments and small shops. No residential, commercial and organised retail establishments are present in the vicinity, except for Ajanta Paper Mills which is exactly opposite to the site location. The developer has also proposed to build a bridge which will connect Khadak Pada (Kalyan West) and Lifestyle City reducing the travel time from 12 minutes to 5 minutes from Khadak Pada.
