Mumbai witnesses a surge in demand for penthouses
Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], October 2: In the sprawling cityscape of Mumbai, where every inch of land is precious, the penthouse stands as a symbol of exclusivity and luxury. These magnificent dwellings, perched atop towering structures, offer more than just a place to reside – they provide an unparalleled sense of opulence and prestige.
A Rarity in the Urban Jungle:
Amidst the towering skyscrapers and compact living spaces of Mumbai, penthouses are the crown jewels of the real estate market. Unlike the array of apartments that dot the city, these extraordinary abodes boast expansive views, spacious living areas, and top-notch amenities. Their cultural significance goes beyond their lavish features; they represent a lifestyle of affluence and sophistication.
What is the trend?
The expansiveness of penthouse projects has been highlighted in recent study reports. These reports emphasize the unique qualities that distinguish penthouses from other dwellings. The definition of space and comfort is redefined by expansive layouts, high ceilings, panoramic windows, private gardens, and expansive terraces. Private pools, attractive lounges, well-stocked gyms, and other upscale amenities are frequently found on the upper floors of these structures. Penthouses create an atmosphere that radiates exclusivity and refinement since they are furnished with premium materials, cutting-edge technologies, and premium appliances.
According to Mr. Aakash Patel, Director, Atul Projects India Pvt Ltd., “Penthouses are a response to the discerning preferences of clients seeking a lifestyle beyond the ordinary. They encapsulate an essence of luxury that goes beyond conventional living. With meticulous design, thoughtful layouts, and lavish amenities, penthouses offer an immersive living experience that epitomizes sophistication. We have been observing a surge in demand for such properties recently.”
A study from CRE Matrix & India Sotheby’s International Realty says that the first half of 2023 saw a spectacular uptick in sales of luxury homes in Mumbai, which increased significantly by about 50% and generated a total of Rs 11,400 crore in revenue. This increase was perfectly in line with the general increasing trend in the housing market. Notably, the primary sales figures for luxury homes saw an astounding 83% jump from the previous year, resulting in a total of Rs 8,817 crore in revenue.
Unmistakable Interior designs that define Penthouses:
What sets penthouses apart, are their distinctive designs and layouts, creating a clear demarcation from regular apartments; with grand vaulted ceilings amplify the feeling of space, setting them apart from standard units.
According to Life and Space Designer, Uttamaditya, “The designing of the interior for a penthouse is larger than life. You can incorporate a retractable glass ceiling in the living area, allowing stargazing from the comfort of your penthouse. Consider an indoor mini-golf course with adjustable slopes, adding a playful twist to entertainment. How about a built-in vertical herb garden spanning the kitchen walls, merging culinary delight with aesthetics? Implement a concealed sliding wall system to create flexible room configurations, optimizing space. Lastly, introduce a smart glass technology that transforms windows into high-definition screens for immersive art displays or virtual cityscape views, redefining the penthouse experience.”
An Investment in Timelessness:
Penthouses are like potent symbols in a place where it’s crucial to maintain things valued. Since they are hard to come by, their value has risen over time. The demand for penthouses, which is always high since there aren’t enough of them available for people to acquire and enjoy their slice of exclusivity, keeps driving up the price. Depending on the area and the developments they are in, penthouse prices in Mumbai can range from Rs 20 crore to an enormous Rs.100 crore. Additionally, having a penthouse carries a certain sense of prestige.
The allure of penthouse living continues to escalate, driven by the upward mobility of urban professionals and their evolving aspirations. Concentrated primarily in Tier-I cities such as Mumbai, NCR, Chennai, Kolkata, Bangalore, and Pune, penthouses have transitioned from being symbols of status to practical solutions for the modern work-from-home lifestyle. Providing a generous canvas for both personal and professional pursuits, penthouses epitomize versatility.
Beyond the Material:
Beyond the premium price tag, the allure of penthouses transcends financial considerations. They offer a gateway to a world of luxury, exclusivity, and refined living, creating an aspirational lifestyle that resonates with individuals seeking the extraordinary.
Penthouse prices in various Indian cities differ. Mumbai’s range is 20 to 100 crore rupees, Gurugram also offers multi-crore options, and Pune and Bengaluru follow similar trends. Noida and Greater Noida Extension range from Rs.6 crore to Rs.12 crore.
Out of the top 10 places in Mumbai where luxury homes are a big draw, Worli made up 31% of the sales, but the biggest jump came from Malabar Hill. There, the value of these homes sold increased by a huge 481% compared to the year before, totalling Rs 1,580 crore.
In short, penthouses are special homes at the top of buildings that manage to be both fancy and cosy, even when there’s not much space. They make city life more relaxing for people who want more than just a regular apartment.
