Last year, Macrotech Developers had sold two apartments worth 109 crore to the directors of Kandoi Fabrics Pvt Ltd, a company that is into manufacturing and exporting packaging fabrics and bags. The promoters of the same company had bought four sea-facing luxury properties in the same project for 217 crore in March 2023.

The luxury housing project is called Lodha Malabar Palaces by the Sea and comprises 31 floors. Lodha Malabar, when completed, will offer an unhindered view of the Arabian Sea and the Queen’s Necklace from its Walkeshwar vantage. It’s designed by architect Hafeez Contractor and Club Saint Amand, a private members’ club, will offer hospitality services. The building will have five floors of podium parking.

In March 2023, Bajaj Auto chairman Niraj Bajaj had bought a sea-facing triplex apartment in Malabar Hill for 252.5 crore. Around the same time, family members of industrialist JP Taparia, founder of the contraceptive maker Famy Care, had bought six sea-facing properties for around 369 crore in Lodha Malabar.

Madhav Goel, director of Tufropes, a leading manufacturer of synthetic fibre rope and netting solutions, had also around the same time bought a 9,546 sq ft apartment in Lodha Malabar for 121 crore.

There was a flurry of luxury housing deals in March last year following a Budget announcement that a 10-crore cap had been imposed on the reinvestment of capital gains from the sale of long-term assets, including property.
