A suburb in Andheri East, Chakala has emerged as one of the premier housing options for Mumbaikars, especially the working population, courtesy of its proximity to employment hubs and affordable living. With an area of 0.39 sq. km, the upmarket neighbourhood hosts a population of an estimated 17,479 residents. According to research studies, most buyers in the region prefer properties ranging less than ₹50 lakhs, with 1 BHK flats dominating the segment. 

Offering the dual benefits of being a residential and commercial epicentre makes real estate a promising investment in Chakala. Adding another feather to the cap of the Andheri East suburb is the presence of smooth connectivity, be it road, rail, or even air. The upmarket locality is also close to tourist attractions such as Sanjay Gandhi National Park, Jogeshwari Caves, and Mahakali Caves, all within a 10km radius. Chakala has several places to relax and unwind, with plush hotels like The Leela, ITC Maratha, and Taj located within a range of 5km. 

In this blog, we will touch upon the factors that make Chakala one of the most favoured destinations among working professionals when buying a home. 

1. An emerging commercial and industrial hub

Chakala lies within a 20km radius of commercial centers like NESCO IT Hub, Film City, Mindspace, and Solitaire Corporate Park. The City’s major retail hubs, such as Pride Shopping Mall and Parle Square Mall, are within the 3-4 km range. Another significant accessibility benefit is the Andheri East suburb’s closeness to industrial epicentres Andheri MIDC and SEEPZ. Hence, many developers have a lot of exciting projects in the pipeline for the area.

2. Smooth Connectivity

Chakala offers an efficient network of roads and railways, with the Victoria Terminus railway station and Asalpha metro station connecting the post locality to other parts of the city. The Western Express Highway offers smooth connectivity when using the road as a mode of transportation. The financial capital’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport in Mumbai is a mere 3km away from the locality. 

3. Building social infrastructure

The demand for flats in Chakala Andheri East has fueled the social infrastructure development in the suburb, offering top-class social amenities in terms of education, healthcare, and leisure facilities.
