Wadala East, which was once a marshy land with a few refineries around the shore and many saltpans, is gradually blossoming into an upper middle-class society with affordable property prices and great connectivity. Located conveniently between South Mumbai and the suburbs, Wadala East is soaring in demand among home-seekers.
Within Wadala East is Bhakti Park, a massive gated community, spread over 25 acres, landscaped with lavish green gardens, two swimming pools, a stadium and a gymnasium, and the worlds largest IMAX, housing 4 multiplexes. The involvement of land development moguls such as Ajmera group, Dosti group, and Lloyd group, is proving to be most profitable to both the developers as well as home-seekers.
The metamorphic new developments made in Wadala East have transformed it into a vibrant place with unparalleled greenery and a certain sense of serenity, beckoning a myriad of people towards it.

Factors for Growth in the Past
Wadala East was initially developed as an industrial locality, with numerous electrical industries dotting the area. Over the past few years, however, a large number of residential complexes have been developed such as Dosti Estate, Dosti Acres, and Bhakti Park, bringing with it a horde of residents-professionals, young couples, and families.
The basic layout of the land dates back as far as the 19th Century, with an emphasis on proper sanitation, landscaped greenery provided by parks, and well laid out streets, occurring over the last two decades.
The establishment of prime educational institutions such as Vidyalankar Institute of Technology, acted as a catalyst to the development of this area.
