Meet the man helping reshape the face of Mumbai

There are are thinkers, philosophers and dreamers and then there are the doers. Very rarely though does one come across a person, who is an ideal balance of both these seemingly polar opposites. Meet one such man, Mr. Kamal Khetan, CMD, Sunteck Realty. Ranked in 2009 by Forbes, as India’s 91st richest man, Mr. Khetan with his tireless work ethic and constant reinvention and focus on innovation, is one of the people helping shape the future of the realty in the island city.

Mr. Kamal Khetan founded Sunteck Realty in the year 2000 and in 2005 made its foray into real estate development with a joint venture on a commercial property in the suburb of Vile Parle. Since then the company has made a name for itself by servicing high net worth blue chip Indian and international companies by way of developing world-class office buildings and commercial spaces, especially in Mumbai’s new business district of Bandra-Kurla Complex (BKC).

There are some people who simply love pushing the boundaries of the possible, these are the true trailblazers and Mr. Khetan is definitely one of them. While developing commercial spaces is definitely a great business model, Mr. Khetan took the leap of faith, by pioneering the concept of ‘walk to work’, by taking an incredible decision. The decision was to build a residential masterpiece of fine living, in the throbbing heart of Mumbai’s business district. Thus was born Signature Island, Sunteck’s showpiece lifestyle development for the swishest of the swish set. Set just a few minutes from the offices of most of the country’s top CEOs, Signature Island provides these tycoons a luxury that money simply can’t buy, the liberty to stroll into work, at their own pace. The response to Signature Island has been fantastic, with the business magnates and CEOs queuing up to be residents of this fantastic development!

The belief that Mumbai as a city has fantastic potential for development and the aspiration to redefine the face of India’s financial powerhouse are strong motivators for a man like Mr. Khetan. How else would one explain the sheer pace at which Sunteck Realty impacts the way Mumbai is looking at high end housing? Since its inception, the company has successfully developed 36 million square feet of city centric developments, primarily in Mumbai across 26 projects. Sunteck’s obsession with changing the face of the city is obvious through the fact that almost 90 percent of its economic value emanates from its Mumbai developments.

Sunteck’s various projects across Mumbai:

Sunteck’s residential portfolio includes developments all across the island city and its suburbs. Considering that most spaces in the island city are either developed or are under development, having such a diverse portfolio in such a competitive space/sector in itself is an astounding feat.

Sunteck City: Goregaon (West): The suburb of Goregaon is the virtual gateway to the busier suburbs of Andheri and Bandra, Sunteck City offers its residents this locational advantage that makes such a difference to the lives of the residents of a city like Mumbai. Add to that a vast array of luxury accoutrements and you have one of suburban Mumbai’s most sought after developments!

Signature Islands/Signia Isles BKC: The concept of walk to work meets the art of unhurried living. The Signature Islands and Signia Isles are the undisputed jewels in the Sunteck crown. Luxurious, bespoke and elegant living in the heart of Mumbai’s business is the prerogative of the privileged few. Undoubtedly a development that is the cynosure of all eyes and the pride of the elite few.

Signia High Borivali (East): Suburban living with a luxurious twist is the only way to describe Signia High. Whether it is the humongous, palatial entrance, the observation decks, mini theatre, concierge services or the triple layer security system, Signia High is definitely a new level of life for the suburbs of Mumbai.

Signia Oceans/Orion: Airoli: Two developments set to redefine life in the Central part of the city. Signia Oceans and Orion are excellent examples of seclusion with inclusion. Set far enough from the hustle and bustle of the Eastern Express Corridor, yet close enough to all the trappings of a cosmopolitan life, these two stand as islands of tranquility in a sea of activity. Add to these the bespoke touches expected of any Sunteck development and you have a residence that you will love to call HOME.

Sunteck’s drive and determination, to change the way the denizens of Mumbai perceive life in the maximum city, is a gift of its charismatic leader, Mr. Kamal Khetan. In an age where leadership by example is a dwindling commodity, Mr. Khetan’s enthusiasm and zeal are infectious and endearing. Mr. Khetan’s devotion to leadership excellence is obviated by his founding of and being a member of several organisations that aim to groom and inculcate leadership values in the next generation of leaders. His role as a mentor with 'Young Presidents' Organization , MRICS (Member of Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors) and the Council of Governors board of APREA are testament to his commitment to excellence, both in the present and for the future.
