Located in the Indian state of Maharashtra, the Bahraini-backed residential housing project comprises of studios, and one- and two-bedroom apartments that cover a total land area of more than 55ha within Phase 1.
More than 900 units of what is known locally as Wise City were sold during a pre-launch for the affordable housing community, with Phase 1 developed through a joint venture of Wadhwa and Valuable.
"Most customers were first time home buyers and the project is expected to make Panvel the most sought-after region for affordable housing," GFH said in a filing on the Dubai bourse.
Panvel is one of the areas that falls within Naina's jurisdiction.
A timeline for completion of the entire project was not disclosed.
