For discerning home buyers, a themed project with luxury amenities in the heart of the city was almost non-existent. Till Kanakia Paris at Bandra-Kurla Complex (BKC), the signature project of the Kanakia Group.
The project philosophy of Kanakia Paris is not about bringing Paris to BKC but about taking one to Paris. From the awe-inspiring Eiffel Tower, the statuesque Louvre, the Landscape and the magnificent Arc De Triomphe at the entrance of the project to the European architecture, Kanakia Paris has it all.
The European standard of service provided by the A La Concierge, the modern fitness techniques at Z Wellness Gym managed by Zaheer Khan’s Prosport, the latest in healing therapies at the spa, the swimming pool with water jets similar to the ones in the pool near the real Eiffel Tower, a mini art gallery — Kanakia Paris is not only about the physicality, it’s about the ambience and the experience of Paris.
They say you’ve never really experienced the Parisian way of life till you’ve lived in a Parisian home. “The idea was to make an apartment that will complement the hustle and bustle of Mumbai’s life and the serene environment of the house. So when I started thinking and creating Parisian interior style and adding that cer-tain ‘je ne sais quoi’ to your space, the outcome is what you see now,” said Olivier Vecchierini, landscape architect and curator of Kanakia Paris.
For the Kanakia Group, Paris is not a project, it’s a dream come true. It shows in their involvement even after the sale deeds have been signed and sealed. The group organises social events at Kanakia Paris on a regular basis.
More than 200 families join in the lively revelry and fun-filled jamboree that underline the lifestyle choice of the highbrow culture and luxury that Paris is known for. Events like aqua yoga, World Cup screening, tambola evening, karaoke, Independence Day celebrations and macaroon-making workshops have made everyday life at Kanakia Paris exciting.
Kanakia Paris has amenities that identify with today’s generation of home buyers, including a spa, steam and sauna, gym, swimming pool, terrace garden, etc.
The facilities of a five-star hotel, the convenience of the location and the aura of Paris are reasons why many expats choose Kanakia Paris as their home. The current rental yields in Kanakia Paris are about 3.5 per cent, one of the best in the city.
Bandra-Kurla Complex (BKC) is Mumbai’s business district and now an emerging premium residential hub. The locational advantages of BKC have been a talking point in real estate circles for the past few decades, as most of the new infrastructure projects in Mumbai have borne good news for the residents of this prime location.
With global corporate giants setting up offices in BKC, luxury residences in the area have been few and far between. The advantage of staying at BKC, which cuts down office commute time to less than 10 minutes, is not lost on the residents of Kanakia Paris.
The new BKC-Chunabhatti flyover will further help reduce traffic and bring down travel time. Bandra has been the hub of Bollywood glamour and lifestyle, and the proximity of Kanakia Paris to the heart of the city brings with it the envious neighbourhood.
There are several high-end shopping, dining and entertainment options in Bandra. Kanakia Paris also has a convenience store, Kuku’s Mart, within its premises to meet the residents’ daily needs.
What this luxury project in BKC has done to Mumbai’s stature as the real estate capital of India can be gauged from the fact that many of the south Mumbai residents have moved to Kanakia Paris.
The rest, as they say, is history.
Parisians are united in joy
The lively participation of the residents in various events organised by the developers in Kanakia Paris has been another attraction for the luxury home buyers who look forward to social events. The involvement of the developers in providing lively, buzzing and cheerful living spaces at Kanakia Paris only adds to the residents’ delight. Recent events include a cupcake-making competition, macaroon-making competition, a dandiya workshop, etc.
Sophistication outside, recreation inside
The luxury quotient of Kanakia Paris has been high, owing not just to the architectural excellence but also the amenities and facilities provided in the project, which include a spa, steam and sauna, gymnasium, kids play area, squash court, waterbody, swimming pool with kids pool, telescope on the rooftop, billiards table, table tennis, landscaped garden, yoga area (on terrace open to sky), foldable cabanas (on terrace), convenience store (paid service), barbeque area (on terrace open to sky), skating area, walking area, etc.
The choice of a new generation
Jayen Shah, co-founder with a financial services company
“The thoughtfulness in the amenities and the facilities designed at Kanakia Paris contribute to stress-free living. The emphasis on healthy living is its biggest attraction for middle- and high-level corporate honchos, who chose luxury that delivers on wellness as well.”
Kranti Mohan, partner with a leading law firm
“BKC benefits from almost all new infrastructure projects planned by the government. Even the new airport at Panvel will be accessible because of good connectivity. Some of the best educational institutions, shopping malls, hospitals and airports are not more than a half-an-hour drive from the project, which was a clincher for us.”
Sheweta Jainn, HR head of a leading MNC
“Home is where the heart is. Kanakia Paris offers a balance of practicality and the finer subtleties of life. The spa, pool, gym and squash court are a few indulgences to linger over. The real reason is a home so complete, you don’t want to step out. But when you must, all parts of Mumbai are close by.”
