Improved connectivity and reduced traffic congestion are expected to make South Mumbai easily accessible. Consequently, micro-market regions in Mumbai's real estate, including Kandivali, Dahisar, Mira Road, Goregaon, Jogeshwari, and Bhayandar, may experience a heightened level of desirability. Since the project's announcement and commencement, real estate prices in these areas have witnessed a market escalation of approximately 10-15%.
