In Mumbai, nothing is more precious than a piece of real estate. And the way to show you have really arrived in life is by owning a luxe apartment in a coveted part of the city. We have learnt that Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli has finally zeroed in on his dream home – a super highrise in Worli, Mumbai that is priced at… hold your breath… a whopping INR 35 crore or more. Here are a few things we know about Virat (and probably Anushka’s?) new home in the bustling city of Mumbai.
Apparently, Virat has been personally overseeing the construction and interiors of the apartment and why not? A home is a labour of love and one of the hottest celebrities in the country deserves this and more. Incidentally, his neighbour is likely to be fellow cricketer Yuvraj Singh who has also bought a luxurious space here. Apparently, Virat and Yuvraj – both of whose homes lie between the 30th and 40th floor have got their own architects who are designing it according to their specific tastes. Sources say, they are likely to move into it by January 2018 when it would be fully ready.
Virat and Yuvi are in illustrious company. While they are the only cricketing celebs who have invested in this property (though the developers claim Harbhajan Singh evinced interest and Akshay Kumar, one of Bollywood’s savviest investors, also checked it out), this area will be home to some really big names in finance and industry. So if you want to rub shoulders with cricketers, hot shot bankers and industrialists such as Aditya Puri, Sulajja Firodia Motwani, Baba Kalyani among others, all you need to do is buy an apartment in any of these towers! Meanwhile, here’s what we know about the posh apartments developed by Omkar Realtors, a leading real estate development company in Mumbai.

WHERE IS IT
WORLI: One of the most sought-after localities in Mumbai, home to the rich and famous in the city.
LOCATION: Omkar 1973. The name of the triple towers has been derived from Worli’s latitudinal and longitudinal co-ordinates. There are three towers, A, B and C, each more exclusive than the other. Virat and Yuvi have their homes in the C wing. Incidentally, with a height of 300 mt and an area of about 5,000,000 sq. ft, Omkar 1973 is one of the tallest structures in Mumbai currently and also one of the most exclusive.
The towers also include a sap pool which may look like this

Get a load of this! The towers that currently stand at 70 floors and are being extended to 81, begin from INR 22 crore and even go up to INR 100 crore (for the sky bungalows).
The apartments on the topmost floors are being called “sky villas” – vertical flats that open up to the skies. These super swanky apartments offer gorgeous views of the Arabian sea and the busy city below. There is a sky terrace, ideal for hosting parties.
Some interesting features within the premises include an infinity pool, dog spa, cafes, sporting facilities, cinema, lounge and library etc. Inside, once it is completed, will be nothing short of a dream – super luxe rooms, awesome terraces and grand interiors. Some also feature a pool deck – basically a space to unwind from the hectic pace with a relaxing dip in the Jacuzzi and swimming pool overlooking the city’s night lights.
There is an in-house restaurant purely for the residents of the towers.
The more expensive a property, the more emphasis on privacy. The buildings have separate elevators for guests and outsiders to restrict direct access to sky bungalows from the ground level and parking podiums.
The property is so bespoke, the developers are offering bareshell spaces – i.e a place that residents can design according to their choice of number of rooms and the area allocated to each.
The construction is almost over and handover will begin soon. Once complete, it is expected to be one of the costliest projects in Maximum City.
