4 Best Residential Areas in Mumbai – Posh Areas in Mumbai

4 Best Residential Areas in Mumbai - Posh Areas in Mumbai

One of the main criteria for selecting a new home is the residential property’s location and neighborhood. And this is necessary because it determines the property’s value based on the nearby amenities. However, this is also important for determining the security factor of the area and the types of residents one may encounter.

Families, especially those with young children, consider the location of a residential area by understanding the quality of life and the general background of the people in that area.

To help new and potential homebuyers choose from some of the best residential localities, here are the top 4 on our list:


Mahalaxmi in South Mumbai is one of the city’s oldest parts and is replete with several old and charming residential constructions. Well-known for the Mahalaxmi Mandir, the Mahalaxmi Racecourse, and the National Sports Club of India, this area is considered extremely posh, with a well-developed neighborhood offering easy access to all local amenities.

Mahalaxmi is connected to the other parts of the city via Mahalaxmi railway station and the Lalbaug Flyover, reducing residents’ commuting time. In addition, many educational centers and prominent business and entertainment centers are easily accessible from Mahalaxmi. Piramal Realty’s Piramal Mahalaxmi reflects the upscale sentiment of the locality and features three luxury residential towers that comprise exquisitely designed apartments. Apart from the deluxe amenities, residents can enjoy nature’s beauty from their apartments, which have magnificent views of the Arabian Sea and the Mahalaxmi Racecourse.


Byculla was originally an extended portion of Mazgaon, which happened to be one of the seven islands of Bombay before the city came into being.

Like Mahalaxmi, Byculla is a highly coveted location for homebuyers seeking a chic neighborhood for their new home. Byculla also comprises heritage buildings and important landmarks such as the Rani Baug, the Motisha Jain Temple, the gothic Gloria Church, and Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum.

Byculla is well connected by the Central Railway line of the Mumbai Suburban Railway via Byculla railway station, as well as bus routes serviced by BEST (Brihanmumbai Electricity Supply and Transport Undertaking).Piramal Aranya, located close to Mumbai’s Eastern Waterfront, offers homebuyers the opportunity to reap the benefits resulting from the massive development of the location. Since several infrastructural projects like the Marina Project, the Trans-harbour Sealink, and Sewri – Worli Link Bridge is in progress on Mumbai’s Eastern Waterfront, one can think of making Piramal Aranya their new address.


For a long time, the true potential of Thane for luxury residences was hidden. This is mainly because the best of Thane’s real estate market and the culture and traditions were kept only to the old residents and locals of Thane. However, with the growth of commercial complexes and ample well-paying jobs in Thane, there is also a need for luxury residential projects.

These luxury residences offered by reputed real-estate developers in and around Thane appeal to the younger generation of Indians and Mumbaikars who aspire to purchase their first luxury home but want to avoid the obvious option of South Mumbai.

The luxury residential development of Piramal Vaikunth in Thane resonates with the needs of these young professionals seeking a higher standard of living. At the same time, Piramal Vaikunth also fosters an ecosystem where residents experience the bliss of co-existing with nature while enjoying a magnificent lifestyle in sustainably designed premium apartments.


Mulund has been a popular name among potential homebuyers looking for luxury homes for a very important reason. It is considered one of the first planned neighborhoods in Mumbai, which has enticed new homebuyers to consider an alternative to South Mumbai, which is already a hot spot for luxury residential projects.

And since the offices and workplaces of these young professionals are in areas like Thane and beyond, it is only natural for them to focus their search for a luxury apartment in Mulund.

Mulund is a nexus between the urban culture and the old-world charm of most old Mumbai localities. Therefore, Piramal Revanta also touches upon these values with its magnificent apartments emphasizing contemporary luxury living with a characteristic connection to nature. The scenic views of the ~25,000-acre Sanjay Gandhi National Park from these apartments complete the definition of luxury living at Piramal Revanta, Mulund.


Piramal Realty’s luxury residential projects in some of the most prominent parts of Mumbai are an opportunity to seek excellent residential areas. In this way, Piramal Realty strives to enrich the lives of its customers by offering an excellent quality of life!
