Property developer Oberoi Realty has awarded a contract for the construction of two condominium complexes in Mumbai to a joint venture comprising Bouygues BaÌ‚timent International and VSL, each a subsidiary of Bouygues Construction.
The project, worth approximately €100 million, marks the Group’s first development in the Indian property sector.
The two upmarket complexes, named Eternia and Enigma, have been designed by architects of HB Design in Singapore.
Comprising four towers in total, the complexes will be built next to the Sanjay Gandhi National Park and will provide panoramic views of the Mulund district in the northeast of the city.
In all, the towers will provide 1,840 apartments and 4,977 car parking spaces, representing a total floor area of 605,000 sq m.
The 59-storey Enigma pair of towers will stand 201m high while the 56-storey Eternia pair will stand 192m high.
Works will begin in May 2016, and will involve 2,350 people on-site at peak periods. Delivery is scheduled for end 2019, Bouygues said today.
"We are thrilled to have been chosen to carry out this massive project in India," said Nicolas Borit, Bouygues BaÌ‚timent International Deputy CEO in charge of Asia-Pacific.
Bouygues said it has built up activities in Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam and Myanmar.
