Mulund: The Most Urban Central Suburb
Mulund is many things together – upmarket and affordable, cultural yet modern, quiet and insulated or buzzing and crowded.
Is Mulund a good place to live?
Lying in the northernmost part of central Mumbai adjoining Thane, Mulund was a part of Thane until the 1950s. Until the 1980s, Mulund was a largely middle-class residential locality that was also home to a large number of industrial units which were eventually moved out of Mumbai, paving the way for residential and commercial development along the stretch of LBS Marg in Mulund West.
During the 1990s and 2000s, Mulund witnessed exponential growth by way of numerous residential, commercial and entertainment projects which came up on land parcels previously occupied by factories. The nature and quality of residential developments in Mulund underwent a sea-change along with the rapid development of social and civic infrastructure. Stretches along LBS Marg and several internal roads leading to Mulund Station became the hub of homes and activity and empty plots along the Eastern Express Highway in Mulund East and up to Nahur too were exploited for their residential development potential resulting in several clusters of affordable middle-class housing as well as upmarket destinations.
The Mulund of today is among the leading suburbs of central Mumbai, home to numerous high-quality residential projects, shopping, retail and dining, culture and entrainment malls, parks and gardens, clubs and gymkhanas, hospitals, schools and colleges, nature and modernity. Mulund commands a premium in terms of price and desirability in Mumbai North East which stretches as far as Ghatkopar.
Mulund is a premium residential hub of north-east Mumbai
While Mulund West remains a much sought-after residential address due to its multi-modal connectivity and transportation infrastructure, well-developed urban facilities and proximity to Thane, Mulund East is witnessing its share of exponential growth. With the availability of land spanning the Mulund East railway line up to the Eastern Express highway stretching up to Nahur East, Mulund East is coming into its own with the arrival of big-ticket developers like Lodha, Tata and others are developing world-class premium residences as well as affordable homes.
East or West, parts of Mulund are almost within touching distance of forests and nature. Be it the boundary of Sanjay Gandhi National Park that borders the highest reaches of Mulund West or the mangroves lie close to Mulund East, which offers peace and quiet due to its location along the Eastern Express Highway beyond which lie large swathes of mangroves lining the Airoli creek stretching the distance into Navi Mumbai. Yet, nowhere in Mulund are residents away from a well-maintained park or public garden, shops, eating out, entertainment, public transportation, sports facilities or cultural avenues.
