10 Takeaways from the Hiranandani Communities Channel-Partner Meet


I spent a recent Saturday amidst lush green mountains and some 'SMART ' professionals at a site tour organised  by Hiranandani Communities.

Hiranandani Communities, in a one-of-its-kind event, invited SMART (South Mumbai Association of Realtors) to  experience the green grandeur of its projects - at  Hiranandani Fortune City - Panvel and their upcoming Khandala project, Mount Alterra.

Hiranandani Communities firmly believes that Happiness lies when business and pleasure roll into one.

Here are my 10 takeaways from the event:

#HForHospitality
The channel partners were welcomed warmly at the Panvel – Fortune City property.  the transport was only the most comfortable – Mercedes Benz buses, really awesome food throughout the day starting from the boxes from Meluha – The Fern, to the buffet at Panvel,   a flash mob that took all our guests by surprise, to the baked vada pav and chai at Khandala, garam garam buttas fresh off the coals, and ending with fantastic lunch and laughter! They even gave native plants as souvenirs to everyone. The Hiranandani team was most hospitable, they even had an ambulance tagging along everywhere just in case. I was totally impressed with the management.


#HForHumble
It was a great opportunity for me to talk to and listen to Mr.Niranjan Hiranandani. His enigmatic persona took over the place and he was soon talking about his passion for building communities. He told us that this year has seen 3 Tsunamis - That of Demonitization, RERA (Maharashtra Real Estate Regulatory Authority) and finally GST. But like always, we have embraced the challenges and always overcome them, and just as people might see the location as a challenge today, their minds will change just like it did for Powai & Thane. He went on to say that he loves challenges - there is no fun without them. And to the channel partners he said that life is a rollercoaster where there are ups and downs - but it's the lows that make the ups even more cherished. He spent a good ten minutes speaking to me and I thought he was the most humble person I had met in a really long time.


#HForHome
Hiranandani Fortune City would make a perfect home! Mr. Niranjan Hiranandani envisions a merger of Pune and Mumbai about 10-15 years down the line, and then Panvel will become the central hub! And his vision to transform locations in the past have always been bang on.  Fortune City will be second to none, quoted Mr. Hiranandani - with the Panvel airport coming, a railway station sanctioned opposite the location and nearby hospital, school etc - it's only going to be a Powai+ of sorts. You can read more about the project on Hiranandani Communities’ website.

Mrs. Sneha Pathak - President of SMART was elated by the welcome and when I asked her if she would suggest customers to buy property here she said ofcourse, why not - there certainly are aspirational values. Rather live in a massive palace like home here than in a bathroom sized apartment in SOBO.

#HForHumongous
We took a look around and the show villa was simply wow. It had a bathroom and wardrobe bigger than the rooms we have and I got a quick feel of how it feels like to live like the kings - I would love that for myself! Apartments to fit everyone's needs and requirements, plots of land in Khandala to build and live in the hills, with a a 9-hole family golf course a walk away.

#HForHonest
I love how Mr.Prakash Shah  from the Hiranandani Team gave everyone all the facts right then and there. The Khandala property will live in the lush greenery and peace. He also out front mentioned all the permissions that have been sanctioned and that are pending – told us how he was the first person to purchase a plot here. The team was more than happy to answer any questions asked by the SMARTians.



#HForHills
I was in love with the pure air and lush greenery wherever you see at Hiranandani’s Khandala site – the mountain is called Mount Altera. Who wouldn’t love to have a holiday home in the hills, and at such close proximity to Mumbai, we were there at the property within 40 minutes from Panvel. I couldn’t stop taking pictures of the natural beauty!

#HForHeritage
HIranandani Communities since the last couple of decades and more has a heritage – a reputation of changing lives. They create townships that have everything right there – homes, markets, schools, workplaces, hospitals etc. Hiranandani Powai was recognized as the most beautiful township in India and quite a few movies were shot there too. And soon Hiranandani Meadows and Estate followed league and now, one can only wait for Hiranandani Fortune City Panvel to show the same magic that comes with the heritage of Hiranandani.


#HForHeart
It all boils down to what your heart says and wants. Today my heart tells me that I want a comfortable home with gardens and amenities that my kiddo would enjoy. A school just nearby and everything else at a stone’s throw. When someone puts their heart and soul into something – something amazing comes out. I could see it in Mr.Niranjan Hiranandani’s eyes that he puts his heart into every thing he takes up.

#HForHiranandani
Anyone from the Hiranandani team you spoke to, just had their chest swollen in pride when speaking of the projects. People have been working here since 30 years and there are others who would love to be here for the next 30. Such was the loyalty seen and it was one of a kind. Hats of to the entire Hiranandani Communities team for putting together such a great show!



#HForHappiness
The final outcome anyone and everyone wants is Happiness. Whether you achieve it after a good picnic, without any cellphone reception meaning a phone-free relaxed day, or whether it is the happiness you get from having good food or talking to amazing people. I love how Hiranandani Communities is all about Happiness, they find happiness in developing projects that will make thousands happy. When I asked Mr. Niranjan what is that one thing that makes him happy, he said – “I find happiness in every moment. Right now I am talking with you, that makes me happy! I visited one of my schools yesterday and spoke to the kids there, it made me happy. If we cherish every moment every thing we do, there is happiness everywhere.”

Even the SMARTians were very happy at the end of the day. Mrs. Sneha Pathak quoted that this was the “best off-site ever, anyone who didn’t attend missed something out of the world.”. Mr. Mehul Ved, one of the members went on to say that “both these projects are both class apart, totally international standards but with an Indian heart.”
