In a move that could boost the property market in and around Navi Mumbai’s Kopar Khairane, the Maharashtra government has approved the plan to construct a smart financial-technological hub at Dhirubhai Ambani Knowledge City (DAKC), double the size of Mumbai’s Bandra Kurla Complex. The project will be constructed by Reliance Realty led by Anil Ambani and will house office space for the non-banking financial companies (NBFCs), information technology and services (IT & ITes).
Once constructed the commercial hub, which will be spread in an area of 30 million square foot (sqf), is expected to generate over 2.5 lakh jobs. The project will be constructed at a cost of Rs 14,000 crore. The developer is expected to complete the first 15 million sqf in the next 10 years with a floor space index (FSI) 4.
