Now you can 'Walk to Work' with Omkar Meridia BKC Crossing

If we consider the average time being spent for daily travel by a person working in BKC, it takes approximately 1 hour for a person from South Mumbai, approximately 1.5 hours for western suburbs and again 1 hour for people from eastern suburbs and Navi Mumbai (one-way travel). Instead of being stuck in traffic or traveling in packed trains, anyone would like to utilize this time to spend quality moments with family, with friends and some leisure activities; or just simply laze around the comfort of homes. To resolve this pain point, one of Mumbai's leading realty brands Omkar Realtors & Developers, who have redefined the residential and luxurious property landscape in Mumbai with projects like Omkar 1973 Worli, Alta Monte, and Crescent Bay, have now come up with a project called Omkar Meridia located at BKC Crossing. It is planned specifically to implement the 'Walk to Work' culture for people working in and around the BKC area. This strategic location is close to both the eastern and the western corridor of the city.

Omkar Meridia recently unveiled its additional inventory of smaller 1 BHK units of the size of 695 sq ft starting at just Rs 1.19 crore to meet the rising demand from office going buyers working in and around BKC. The new inventory also has smaller 1.5 BHK's and 2BHK's of 900 sq.ft. area priced at Rs 1.46 crore and of 982 - sq.ft.area at Rs 1.65 crore respectively. The project also offers a grand 2 BHK of the size of 1260 sq.ft. at Rs 1.96 crore. So, the main hurdle of affordability which comes while purchasing an apartment around the BKC area has been resolved with these attractive prices.

On 6th Oct 2016, the CMO of Omkar Realtors & Developers, Mr. Amit Parsuramka had invited us and some fellow bloggers to the actual site and gave a brief overview of this unique project. It was a really informative session as he carried the presentation in a conversational tone and answered all the queries related to this project gracefully. What was interesting is the high transparency in sharing all-possible information of a real estate project. Good for customers.

While he elaborated the several key differentiators of Omkar Meridia, when I asked him about the USP of this project, he told that "The Intention and theme behind this project are to implement the Walk to Work Culture by making affordable homes around the BKC area". A point worth mentioning, the overall experience of having a look at the ready sample flats and the staff’s hospitality was commendable.
