Tumchi Aamchi Mumbai

Everywhere you look, crores of people always in a hurry. Mumbai, India’s financial capital is one of the most populous cities in the world where time is money. People from all 30 states and expats share a living in this ever bustling city. It’s a tough place. Difficult to travel and almost impossible to buy a place. But Mumbai will give you a fair chance if you are willing to work hard. 
Just like Mumbai, moving on….

Business District

Mumbai has 4 business districts namely Nariman Point, Lower Parel, Bandra Kurla Complex and Andheri. Most of the private companies in India are headquartered in Mumbai. We have work hard party hard attitude. Mumbai also has the most number of bars and night life hotspots. You can get a beer at 1am in most bars of South Mumbai. Although 24x7 Mumbai is still a distant dream. Mumbai is also a port city and nearly 10% of high value land belongs to Mumbai Port Trust. It is well connected by sea routes and has ship building industry.

Mumbai has one of costliest apartments in the world. A flat in Malabar Hill area may cost you around Rs. 80000 per square foot ( Yeah.. you heard it right! ) A luxurious sky bungalow on 117th floor in Lodha World One costs whopping 17.2 crore. We also have bollywood and last checked of BookMyShow there were 32 movies running in 9 regional languages.

Old and New

Mumbai was developed by the Portuguese and the British. Mumbai was always the best destination for business in India. In 1870, there were 6 foreign banks operating from Bombay. The Bombay Stock Exchange was established in the 1870’s. Business made Mumbai as beautiful as London and Paris. The CST building, University of Mumbai, Asiatic Society, Taj Mahal Palace, Rajabhai Tower are some of the most beautiful structures in Mumbai.

Marine Drive, Lower Parel make Mumbaikars proud. We have the best skyline in India and looking at current construction rate, we might overtake New York in 2030 by the most number of skyscrapers. The upcoming Bhendi Bazaar redevelopment project with transform the face of crowded market into Mini Smart City. With FDI in construction, Mumbai skyline will see a major facelift in coming decade.

Chalo Chalo Chalo. #MumbaiLocalIn3Words

Mumbai is major design flaw. The city kept growing and but its snail run infrastructure lacked expansion. Mumbai’s lifeline is it’s local trains. They are divided into three lines namely Western, Central and Harbour. Most of the commuters travel from northen suburbs to South and Central business districts to make a living. Peak hours in Mumbai are named as ‘super dense crush load’. Trains of all three lines at the distance of three minutes and each train carries around 5000 people. Mumbai local has the highest daily ridership in the world with 26 million people. Male, Female, Old and young, there is just one strategy to travel in Mumbai – Push or be pushed.
