Redevelopment: Mumbai



Redevelopment : Mumbai 

Being the financial capital of India and home to Bollywood, many people see Mumbai as a place to get opportunity to get their dream come true.

Redevelopment of city of dreams

Bombay to Mumbai .....

This might feel like today's thought but the migration of people to this so called Island Vity has never dropped, and so the housing burden too.
If we see in past, Mumbai as a city, people used to travel less to their working space. But with time the city space got filled and people needed to settle a bit far from the city.

Redevelopment and metro projects for the city of dream

Metro station Mumbai

New place to leave, new transportation system and many more changes in the economic side too has lead this City Of Dream to a new place and thus I named this article as Redevelopment : Mumbai
