One-of-a-kind green development to come to Thane, Mumbai 

The city of Thane where this development is proposed has around thirty beautiful lakes – hence known as The Lake City, which is well connected with neighbouring suburbs of Mumbai through sub-urban railway network. In a stressful environment of the current age, the aim should be that office-goers find a sense of peace and serenity in the complex that allows them to feel 'at home'. An important focus area for this project is to create an edge in terms of environmental friendly sustainable design, which is practical from an operation perspective.

The development aims to provide to its users a quality environment indoors as well as outdoors to enhance business productivity. The developer’s passion for the greener environment, the brief that spelled the environment friendly and sustainable development, inspired Bentel to go with simple yet effective building forms - well suited for the office planning. The brief to salvage the maximum existing vegetation of the site was achieved by a no basement development planned around major trees of the site.

The neutral concrete drapes gel with the environment, while the colours play visual anchors. The balanced play of the form finish concrete with glass renders a contemporary architectural styling to the development, yet incorporates design, construction and operational practices that significantly reduce or eliminate the negative impacts of development on the environment and occupants.

The facades respond well to the basic climatic conditions, respect the sun path and will hasten operating efficiencies. This green business park development is a real estate enterprise aimed to strive for high environmental, economic and social benefits as well as business excellence, to respect a famous saying: "Eventually, the world will no longer be divided by the ideologies of ‘left’ and ‘right’, but by those who accept ecological limits and those who don’t."
