Pune-based real estate developer has already entered into agreements for three redevelopment projects in Mumbai's western suburbs that has total area of over six lakh sqft and is eyeing a few more in areas such as Dadar-Chembur belt, Worli, Mulund, Khar, Bandra and Santacruz.


"With a strong vision to expand in Mumbai, we are looking at the huge scope available in the redevelopment segment. This strategy has proved to be very effective, and we are confident that this will reap rewards across markets," he said.


According to him, there are around 52,000 buildings societies and tenancy structures that can come up for redevelopment in future. "This opens a huge opportunity for developers like us to generate good share of our revenues from the Mumbai market," he said.
