If looking for commercial office space or retail space in Mumbai, we would consider Andheri. Andheri is just north of Juhu, and like many other localities in Mumbai, the railway line divides Andheri into two parts: east and west.
Both Andheri West and Andheri East provide a wide assortment of office spaces. Andheri West is slightly more expensive, and the floor plates are slightly smaller, topping out at about 10,000 square feet. In Andheri East, one can find office floor plates over 50,000 square feet. The benefit of Andheri is its close proximity to the airport, a large labor force (1.5M people live in Andheri alone) and less expensive rental prices compared to Bandra, Juhu and BKC to the south.
Andheri is increasingly becoming a commercial hub supporting a growing number of malls, shops, western restaurants, night clubs, showrooms, bars, gyms, spas, etc. Similar to office space in Andheri, retail space is less expensive than its neighbors to the south. Within Andheri, the higher end shops and restaurants tend to be Andheri West where the prices are slightly more expensive than Andheri East.
In terms of connectivity the international and domestic airports are located in Andheri East, making the commute one of the shortest in the City at 10-20 minutes. Given that the Mumbai Metro Line spans all of Andheri, employees can easily access their place of work.
