The family members of industrialist and founder of Famy Care JP Taparia have bought a luxury triplex apartment worth Rs 369 crore in South Mumbai's Malabar Hill. The sea-view apartment is said to be the most expensive in the country, reported The Economic Times citing sources.
The family has bought the luxury apartment from Macrotech Developers which is an entity of the Lodha Group. The property is on the 26th, 27th, and 28th floors of Lodha Malabar, a super-luxury residential tower. It is spread across an area of 1.08 acre and touches both the Arabian Sea and the Hanging Gardens, said the report.
The total area of the triplex is 27,160 square feet and it has been purchased at Rs 1.36 lakh per square foot by the JP Taparia family. This makes it the most expensive residential apartment deal in the country also as per square feet basis, the report added quoting people with direct knowledge of the development.
The Taparia family paid a stamp duty of Rs 19.07 crore on the purchase of the triplex apartment.
