Lavasa Corporation Limited has announced the launch of Mugaon – the 2nd town to be built at Lavasa. Situated on the banks of the lake amidst beautiful and picturesque setting, Mugaon will be developed on approximately 2400 acre area and is much larger than Dasve, the first town of Lavasa. The launch announcement was made by Rajgopal Nogja, Group President – HCC in presence of the beautiful and vivacious finalists of Miss India pageant 2012 at a gala event held at the Lavasa international Convention Centre (LICC). At the event the 20 pretty finalists launched Bellshore Apartments – the first in series of apartments on sale at Mugaon.
Mugaon, located close to the first town Dasve is being developed as a residential, educational, business and commercial hub. Major attractions in the new town are the Town Centre with shops, cafes, cultural institutions, spiritual centres, Apollo Medicity, schools and colleges; Sports Academies like Manchester City Football Academy, Nick Faldo Golf Academy etc and a USSRC supported Space theme Park and a Hollywood - Bollywood style theme park.
Dogged for long by orders by the ministry of environment and forests (MoEF) for violating green laws, which halted development work for its first town Dasve since November 2010, HCC is slowly breathing life back into the Lavasa project. The construction work has begun at most sites where it was stalled half way.
Admitting that 80 per cent of the residential construction works at Dasve has yet to be completed, Rajgopal Nogja, group president development companies at HCC, said it would take another 18 months. He claimed that Dasve has been fully booked.
Many believe that the launch of its extension project into Mugaon at Lavasa International Convention Centre on Saturday is a confidence building measure. “You may call it a CBM. We are here to build a big beautiful hill city,” says Nogja.
Lavasa Corporation, a subsidiary of HCC, is developing the second town and completing the first phase at Dasve after getting green nod from the MoEF on November 9, 2011. “There is no legal obstacle now for the construction work within the 10,500 acre land in possession of the company,” he said. An additional 2, 500 acre land is at various stages of ownership transfer at Pune collector’s office, though the company has brought the land, he said.
Nogja said, “Over 2,000 residential apartments ranging from studio apartment, one-and-half BHK, 2 and 3 BHK with a spectacular view will be developed on both sides of the lake aqt Mugaon over the next four years.”
