7 Reasons Why Flats in Andheri West Remain a Favourite with Home Buyers

Mumbai is one of the most populated cities in the world. Owning a home is every Mumbaikar's dream, and Andheri West is a common choice among prospective home buyers.

Here are 7 of the top reasons why this beautiful suburb still remains popular.

1. Heart of Mumbai

Andheri's growth as a whole can be attributed to its excellent location. Perched right between north and south Mumbai, Andheri has become a teeming commercial hub, more so because of the location of the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport in Andheri East. Numerous global corporations, media houses, and businesses have moved headquarters to Andheri over the past decade. Its proximity to other commercial hubs like BKC and SEEPZ makes it a desirable residential market as well. In every sense of the term, Andheri West is indeed the heart of Mumbai.

2. Excellent connectivity

Andheri West is connected to the rest of the city through BMC Road, Creek Road, New Link Road, and Versova Marg. Arterial roads such as The JVLR (Jogeshwari - Vikhroli Link Road) and the Western Express Highway are just west of the neighbourhood, offering easy access to other commercial hubs such as Jogeshwari, Bandra, Goregaon, Vile Parle, and Dadar. The Andheri Railway Station (W) and the Andheri Metro Station plug the suburb into the city's suburban and metro networks, offering excellent connectivity and cutting down commutes to other parts.

3. More than just luxury

Andheri's residential market is predominantly inclined towards luxury residences. Andheri West, in particular, is the top choice of developers and builders looking to build upscale projects. While this is true, the neighbourhood also has a number of options that suit the needs of a budget home buyer. Be it a studio apartment or 1 and 2 BHK flats, the projects in this part of the city come with a host of wonderful amenities and facilities, making it a great choice for homebuyers.

4. Perfect family neighbourhood

For young families, Andheri West offers all the facilities and conveniences within arm's length. The Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital and Medical Research Institute in Andheri West is one of Mumbai's top hospitals and medical centres. The neighbourhood has nearly 20 schools, including St. Mary's High School, Billabong High International School, Belvedere Spring School, and OES International School. Colleges like Oriental College of Commerce and Management, Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Technology, and Sardar Patel College of Engineering are among the top higher education institutes in the vicinity. With the Decathlon sports store, there are a number of sports academies such as Krida, Goal 101, Brid, and Kinder Academies for sports enthusiasts.

5. The best of urban living

Looking to live in a suburb that seamlessly blends the best of an upscale lifestyle with excellent social infrastructure? Andheri West checks all the right boxes when it comes to comfort and style. From high street shopping at the Infiniti Mall and Fun Republic to street shopping at the Andheri West Market, from Tirumala Shopping Centre to Lokhandwala Complex - shopping is nearly a religion in this part of the city. The suburb has some of the best fine-dining restaurants, bars, pubs, clubs, and entertainment centres.

6. Star-studded Andheri

While the rest of the country may remain obsessed with Bollywood, Mumbai is where you can rub shoulders with silver-screen celebrities or at least have them for neighbours. While Bandra is the more exclusive residential neighbourhood, Andheri West has its own charm. That is precisely why some of our favourite stars like Alia Bhatt house, Akshay Kumar house, Archana Puran Singh, Arshad Warsi, Johny Lever, Juhi Chawla, Manoj Bajpai, Sonali Bendre, Tabu and several other veteran actors, screenwriters, directors, and media personalities have chosen to live in Andheri West. Going out for a casual Sunday brunch may well be an exercise in star-sighting for you and your friends.

7. Superlative ROI

If there is one definitive reason why homeowners and real estate investors prefer Andheri West, ROI has to be it. Andheri West flat prices were pegged at about INR 11,000 per square foot in 2008, and by the start of 2023, there were estimated to be around INR 30,000 per square foot. The asset appreciation of residential property has far outdone most other investment options. Rentals in the neighbourhood are at an all-time high, making cash flow a lucrative income for homeowners who decide to lease or rent their property. Andheri West has indeed been an investor's delight and continues to remain a favourite.

Final Thoughts

There are several factors to consider when you decide to buy a flat or a residential apartment in Mumbai, but Andheri West seems to come out ahead on all parameters. It remains no wonder, then, that despite the rapid urbanisation of the city's fringes and suburbs, Andheri West remains the average homeowner's favourite.
