Hiranandani Estate is an upmarket condominium-style township built by the Hiranandani Group in Thane city, a suburb in the Mumbai Metropolitan Area, India. It is accessible via Ghodbunder Road which connects the Eastern Express Highway to the Western Suburbs of Borivali, Kandivali and Mira Road.
The township has a distinctive skyline which stands out in comparison to buildings from neighbouring complexes, particularly because of the heavy usage of Greco-Roman architectural influences. Designed to be self-sufficient, the township includes the Hiranandani Hospital, the Hiranandani Foundation School (ICSE) and an exclusive club house along with other cafes, restaurants, ATMS and its own transportation system connecting the township to Thane Railway Station. The township is also famous for its wide roads, broad pavements and landscaping.The township is also home to the Hiranandani Business Park Thane which houses numerous BPOs and MNCs.
Residents of each building within the township form cooperative societies to take care of issues related to utilities and aesthetics, resolve neighborly disputes and hold events on festivals or other occasions. The Hiranandani Estate Residents Welfare Association (HERWA) serves as a town council and deals with issues related to the township. HERWA is further divided into sub-committees, such as the bus committee. The township also has its own newspaper - 'Hiranandani Estate News' - which is published on a monthly basis.
The Hiranandani Estate Action Forum was created recently to voice the concerns of residents regarding the lack of security within the township as well as to deal with other issues such as forest land enroachment, water supply,development of a community centre, etc. The Forum recently staged a protest rally to bring these issues to the developer's notice. Since then, the forum has discussed these issues with the developer of the township, and hopes to resolve them as soon as possible. Members of the forum meet every Sunday from 9AM to 10AM at the Club House.
