Local brokers said that this is a redevelopment luxury project launched by Lodha recently where the minimum size of the unit is around 9000 sq ft. Each apartment is priced above Rs 100 crore, they said.
There was no response from the builder or the buyer.
Last month, Welspun Group chairman BK Goenka has purchased a penthouse for Rs 230 crore only a few days after 28 housing units worth Rs 1,238 crore were bought by family members and associates of Radhakrishna Damani, founder of Avenue Supermarts that runs the D’Mart chain of stores, in Mumbai last week.
The price Goenka paid for purchasing the penthouse in the same project as Damani had made it probably the country’s single most expensive sale of an apartment.

Local brokers say that the uber-luxury market will be on fire until March 31, 2023. This is on account of a provision introduced in Budget 2023, announced on February 1, that was expected to have an impact on the sale of such properties from April 1. A Rs 10-crore cap has been imposed on the reinvestment of capital gains from the sale of long-term assets, including property. No such cap is applicable at the moment.
