The projects executed by the company have a futuristic design, with a fine fusion of aesthetics and functionality. The projects are distinguished by the high quality of construction and attention to detail. Moreover, they are all located in prime areas.
To cater to middle class buyers, they undertook both to construct low cost housing and to finance it at nominal rates. Attar Apartments and Kamanwala Nagar at Virar were built under this program.
Apart from this, the company acquired some old buildings and tenements, which were repaired and renovated. The ownership rights were then transferred to the tenants at reasonable rates. Due to the economical rates at which these buildings were acquired, the projects were profitable for the company. Moreover, the affordable price of conversion from tenancy to ownership compelled many tenants to take up the offer.
One of the first such projects was the well known Kamanwala Chambers at Fort, Mumbai. Formerly Advani Chambers, this commercial building was converted in 1985. Kamani Chambers at Ballard Estate is another building which was taken up for renovation and conversion of tenancy to occupancy.
