Titan Company, a prominent member of the Tata Group, has recently acquired commercial space in a ready project located in the Borivali suburb of Mumbai for Rs 100 crore. This purchase adds to the company’s existing presence, as it already operates a Tanishq jewelry store from this location.

The commercial space, spanning across three floors in the Vini Elegance building, covers a total area of 16,280 square feet. It is distributed between the ground floor, first floor, and upper basement levels.

The seller of the property had previously availed term loans against it through a lease rental discounting facility from Axis Bank in April 2021. Titan Company has deducted the dues owed to Axis Bank, which amount to approximately Rs 37.32 crore, from the seller’s price and has repaid the lender.

As part of the deal, Titan Company will also have exclusive access to 18 car parking slots in the building. Stamp duty worth Rs 6 crore has been paid for the registration of the transaction, which took place on Thursday, according to documents accessed through CRE Matrix.

The ground floor of the space covers an area of 5,829.67 square feet, the first floor spans approximately 6,326 square feet, and the upper basement occupies 4,127.24 square feet. Additionally, the acquisition includes 18 car parking slots.
