Hiranandani Gardens, Powai celebrates its silver jubilee; a dream has come true: Niranjan Hiranandani
MUMBAI, JANUARY , 2015: Among the leading landmarks that re-defined Mumbai’s real estate, Hiranandani Gardens, Powai has just completed a milestone: it
celebrated the completion of 25 years of the project. The celebration, which started on December 30, went on till January 4. Expressing the celebratory mood, the streets, trees and garden areas in the township were lighted up, giving Hiranandani Gardens Powai a dream-like setting. “It was very apparent during sun-set and at sun-rise, when the twinkling decorative lights stood out against a soft skyline with low intensity natural light. It truly looked like being in a dream,” said Niranjan
Hiranandani, MD, Hiranandani Constructions Pvt Ltd (HCPL). “A dream which has come true, and is celebrating its silver jubilee,” he added.
Panvel, Ahmedabad, Pune and Chennai are locations where the Hiranandani Group Companies will create more such integrated townships, he added. Describing Hiranandani Gardens Powai as a ‘neo classical architectural marvel nestled amidst the verdant Powai hill’, Niranjan Hiranandani said it enjoyed a strategic location, opposite the serene Powai Lake. “Hiranandani Gardens Powai is where more than 4000 families stay. Sprawled majestically over 250 acres, it is arguably, Mumbai’s finest residential township; one that has redefined the standards of elegant living,” he said.
When one speaks of changing the skyline of Mumbai, in terms of creating mixed-use townships, we were among the first to create ‘work spaces’ amidst ‘living spaces’, located amidst ‘verdant greenery', explains Niranjan Hiranandani. "We believe in interweaving living spaces with nature and the mixed-use township,Hiranandani Gardens Powai, provides a verdant Green and serene ambience with 24 x 7 work-and-live environment amidst world-class infrastructure. ‘Walk to work and walk back home’ is something that is a reality at Hiranandani Gardens Powai. It follows the adage that in order to create 'better communities', it is first essential to create 'greener communities', which is a reality at Hiranandani Gardens, Powai," explained the Hiranandani Constructions' MD.
"When we created Hiranandani Gardens Powai, we also became pioneers in leveraging futuristic technology, innovative design and precision engineering to create a world-class real estate complex as also a Green mix-use township, which has gone on to become a landmark," he added. Following Hiranandani Gardens Powai, the focus on creation of green townships has helped the Hiranandani Group companies usher in an era highlighted by a higher standard of living and influenced by global trends, visible in the township projects in Thane, pointed out the Hiranandani Constructions’ MD.
When we created Hiranandani Gardens Powai, we raised the bar of standard of living. “It has been our endeavour to give quality life to people residing here. We not only improved the infrastructure of the location, but have also increased the wealth of people who booked apartments in our complex. Initially, we sold the flats at Rs 500 per sq ft, the rate now is between Rs 25,000 and Rs 30,000 per sq ft,” he added.
His final thoughts on the silver jubilee? “I would like to look at the future. Prime Minister Narendra Modi wants to develop smart cities in India. For the Hiranandani
Group Companies, the future will be about develop more townships like Hiranandani Gardens Powai – Smart Cities where people can live and work comfortably,” concluded Niranjan Hiranandani, MD, Hiranandani Constructions..

MUMBAI, JANUARY 04, 2015: It was health-conscious Mumbaikars - more than 8,000 – who started the New Year with the Hiranandani Powai Run on the first Sunday of 2015 with the lead cause of ‘education for the girl child’. The ‘Hiranandani Marathon 2015’ was a healthy and ideal way to start the new year,” said Niranjan Hiranandani, MD, Hiranandani Constructions Pvt Ltd (HCPL). Social Responsibility was also on the agenda, with several non-profit organizations being part of the event.
Niranjan Hiranandani flagged off the ‘Hiranandani Powai Run’, as also ran the 5 kms long ‘Laker's Trail’, which was among the three options for participants. “The main event was the ‘Half Marathon’ 21 km run, which passed through JVLR and the Powai flyover, the second option was the ‘Hiranandani Hop’ 10 km run, while the “Lakers’ Trail” at 4 km was the third option,” said Niranjan Hiranandani. “This is the first time that the Hiranandani Marathon includes sections to be run which are outside the Hiranandani Gardens complex; we also welcome the participation of a large number of Mumbaikars from all over, which made ‘Hiranandani Powai Run’ a typical ‘Mumbai’ event, and not just restricted to residents of Powai and the neighboring areas,” he added. This was the fourth such event; the three earlier editions were based within the Hiranandani Gardens.
With the MD participating in the ‘Hiranandani Powai Run’, it underscored the message of being fit that the Hiranandani Constructions Pvt Ltd is following as its ‘corporate mantra’. “As the MD of my company, keeping fit so as to be able to deliver the best is what I owe to my company’s stakeholders, said Niranjan Hiranandani. “I hope that seeing the MD participate in the ‘Hiranandani Powai Run’ will enhance the aspect of being health conscious within the company as also among stake holders,” he added.
“The ‘Hiranandani Powai Run’ was an initiative to awaken residents of Powai and Mumbaikars about the importance of maintaining their health and lifestyle. With busy schedules, work pressure and hectic lifestyles, we see that citizens tend to neglect their health. The ‘Hiranandani Powai Run’, in a way, was a health wake-up call for residents,” said Niranjan Hiranandani.
It was not just the Marathon to be run; conclusion of the ‘Hiranandani Powai Run’ marked the beginning of festivities, in form of the Carnival. “The Carnival was planned to give a sense of participation to those who did participate in the run – they were able to be part of the ‘Hiranandani Powai Run’ Carnival, where residents could connect with each other, over a fun breakfast and brunch,” concluded Niranjan Hiranandani.
