Is the shift in market trends towards conjoined homes a new demand?

The residents of Mumbai city have lived in small apartments for the longest. This was a way of living for most of them until 2005 – 2006. The reason they chose to continue living in the heart of the city was mainly to stay close to work; less commute and spending more time with the loved ones and living in the neighbourhood they grew up. The lack of space in Mumbai city and the demand for a lavish lifestyle came with the luxury projects further to the north of Mumbai and beyond. A larger home with lavish lifestyle in a new neighbourhood being a necessity. A vast number of populations migrated to these homes only to realise the distance between their homes; work and quality time towards family was being compromised in traveling.
