Panvel is slowly developing to become another prime locality in the real estate domain. This part of Navi Mumbai has seen the establishment of properties, especially residential ones, and has become a big hub of investment. Excellent rail-road connectivity is one major factor that attracts buyers' attention towards the area. The locality is such that both central and western lines are efficiently connected. The metro line from panvel to Vashi has also been a major development in favour of the area. Another main attraction of the area is that it makes connectivity with other states also easier. Plans of the new and up-coming airport have also added value to the real estate properties here. Keeping up with the standards of Mumbai, even Panvel is committed to providing entertainment and a good cultural atmosphere to its residents. A range of educational institutes- schools and colleges, multi-cuisine restaurants, healthcare units and hospitals and shopping enterprises have been successful in providing all kinds of facilities and services to visitors and residents.
