Want to put down roots in a part of Mumbai that’s not as crowded as the rest of the city, but still has all the conveniences that a good suburb offers? Say hello to Powai. While it is no longer a hilly, barren locality best known for its lake, Powai it still is a great neighbourhood to consider if you’re investing in real estate, especially if you’re buying a home for the family.

Here are 3 reasons why real estate in Powai gets a thumbs-up from us.

When you consider flats in Powai, you get excellent connectivity via the Eastern and Western Express Highways, along with JVLR (Jogeshwari-Vikhroli Link Road). Whether you want to go to Kurla, Chembur or Andheri, you can with considerable ease. Also, did we mention that Powai has relatively wider roads than the rest of the city?

There’s plenty of fresh air!
While you can visit lakes or parks in the neighbourhood, there are many homes in Powai that are spread over a vast area themselves, giving you more value for your money.
