Mumbai has been fighting a battle for open spaces for many years now. With only o.o3% of open space for every 1,000 people, the situation is indeed appalling. Open spaces in the form of parks, playgrounds, sitting areas, etc. play an important role in keeping the city green and make social interactions possible without having to spend time in a mall or a café. They're also a great place to spend time with your children, or for the elderly to spend time outdoors.
This need for open spaces has been one of the most influential factors for home-buyers in Mumbai. With prime areas such as Dadar, Andheri, Chembur, Bandra, Powai, etc. reaching saturation level, people are now moving to the outskirts. A popular suburb today is Kanjurmarg, adjoining Powai, where a lot of developers are providing vast open spaces inside the township itself.
A unique concept such as incorporating a forest inside the township is a great way to offer the complete lifestyle – it brings residents the opportunity to go on hikes, morning walks, bike rides and more, while creating an atmosphere of peace and serenity.
Runwal Forests is one such development in Kanjurmarg, with each residence offering splendid views of the Powai Lake, hills, creeks, lush green stretches and more.
In addition to the scenic beauty, the development incorporates a number of amenities designed to bring residents even closer to nature. Five acres of landscape gardens form the perfect space to enjoy on a weekend with your family, while the Zen garden rejuvenates you after a day’s hectic work.
When open spaces form such an intrinsic part of every day, every aspect of your lifestyle falls into place – you get the recreational spaces you need, physical fitness can be taken outdoors instead of going to the gym and the clean air helps you stay refreshed at all times. The need for open spaces in Mumbai is an overwhelming one but fortunately, suburbs such as Kanjurmarg are opening up a whole new kind of lifestyle in the city today.
