This partnership is special to us considering the incredible brand of Godrej Properties,” Nirmal Chairman and Managing Director Dharmesh Jain said.

This is Nirmal Ventures’ second big partnership after it roped in L&T Realty to jointly develop an integrated residential project at Mulund in Mumbai. “Through these two associations, we have raised over Rs 1,000 crore. This strategic infusion of capital has proved to be a guiding force for the real estate industry during challenging times for a promising outcome,” he said
Commenting on the deal, Godrej Properties Executive Chairman Pirojsha Godrej said, “The addition of this new project in Thane, a key micro-market of Mumbai, strengthens our development portfolio in the area and fits well with our strategy of deepening our presence in key markets across India’s leading cities.” Property consultant JLL India structured the transaction, the release said.
