New tower to be pre-launched with this innovative model at India’s most successful real estate development by Lodha Group
– A new version of the initial IPO-style application process to enable choice of residences
– The final pre-market opportunity at The Park, Worli, in the same neighbourhood that houses Mumbai’s one and only Trump Tower

August 21st  2015, Mumbai: In a first-of-its-kind endeavor aimed at enhancing sales efficiency, Lodha Group today launched a unique ‘IPO with Your Choice’ application process for the much awaited  new  tower  at  The  Park, named  as  Codename  August  Moon. The new  process  is engineered  to  provide  a hassle-free  and  seamless  experience  for homebuyers  to  choose  a residence at the time of purchase – an option that wasn’t available in the earlier process.

The 75 storey tower designed by WOHA world’s finest sustainable high-rise architects, will be the last pre-market opportunity for home buyers to own a residence in the up-market Worli at very competitive price points. The pre-launch will make 126 spectacular residences available under the unique Book Building process

Codename August Moon’s new process will allow the homebuyer to select an exact residence on the map while completing formalities during the allotted slot. Lodha Group has pioneered an IPO-style  application  process to  sell  residences  at  The  Park  in  2013  that  witnessed  an overwhelming  response  and  consistent  over-subscriptions  from  homebuyers,  making  it  as India’s first billion dollar pre-launch. This was the first time in the history of real estate  that an IPO process was used to sell residences.

Carrying forward its legacy of innovation, Lodha Group has once again set new standards  by introducing ‘IPO with Your Choice’ with a mix of right sized inventory in a micro-market starved for appropriate supply. In the past, all 3 pre-launches at The Park have received widespread participation from homebuyers resulting in oversubscriptions 2 times on an average

Commenting on  the  pre-launch, Abhishek Lodha – Managing Director, Lodha Group, said: “Mumbai is today a global megapolis and the center for capital, talent and industry. It is only fitting that we bring quality housing in a market where the supply of the right sized and rightly priced residences are scarce. The present  options are either extremely large sized and high priced or heavily compromised in terms of lifestyle in case of old or standalone towers which are left craving for even the most basic amenities and safety features. Codename August Moon at The Park aims to bridge this gap.”

The Tower, whose architecture is inspired from the rich textile heritage of Mumbai, will be a vibrant and colourful addition to the skyline of Mumbai and will feature grand 2, 3, 4 and 5 bedroom residences. It
includes a great mix of highly functional and luxurious elements with contemporary design and focus on eco-sustainable living. The residences not only have a designer entrance lobby, imported marble
flooring, bedroom with walk-in-wardrobes and 5-fixture bathrooms but also 7-tier security systems, separate servant’s room, Puja and utility areas.
