Keppel Land has entered into a joint venture with Indian developer Rustomjee Group to jointly develop a 51.4ha township in Thane, a mature and well-connected district in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region in India.
The township is called Urbania and was launched in 2006. It already comprises 2,700 residential units and some amenities. This joint venture is the first such township development between a Singaporean developer and an Indian developer in the area.
