L&T Realty launches its much-awaited ultra-luxury residential project in Mumbai
Marking its foray into the ultra-luxury real estate space, L&T Realty has recently launched a seafront residential tower at salubrious Sewri in south Mumbai.
Christened ‘The Gateway’, the majestic residency will overlook the city’s shimmering harbour, flamingo bay, and India’s longest sea bridge – the Mumbai Trans Harbour Link.
Comprising two towers that soar 220 meters above sea level, ‘The Gateway’ is going to be an architectural masterpiece. With a clubhouse perched on top, the exclusive residency offers a lifestyle of luxury to a select few – not more than 350 classy families.
The launch was preceded by a Channel Partners Meet at the Jio World Convention Centre on 24 February.  The highlight of the evening was a captivating tower reveal video where technological expertise and creative flair were leveraged to showcase the structure’s architectural brilliance.
The following day, a sales lounge and experience centre were opened for the project. Here prospective buyers can delve into a comprehensive 3D exploration of the property, which includes detailed neighbourhood mapping, adjustable lighting conditions and panoramic views.
‘The Gateway’ boasts of a range of recreational and utilitarian amenities – such as tennis, squash and badminton courts, an indoor games room, a swimming pool, a creche and about an acre of open landscaping on the podium.
Atop the building, with the breathtaking view, are amenities such as the gym, a banquet hall, restaurant, board room and guest suite. With unparalleled connectivity and convenience, the property promises buyers the best of the city.

L&T's eight decades of project management are being captured in a 10-volume series
The L&T Institute of Project Management (L&T IPM), located at Vadodara and Chennai, creates excellence in project management with a basket of courses. L&T-IPM’s educational initiatives are emerging as benchmarks in project management education.
In line with the strategic directives set by IPM’s Project Management Council (PMC), the Institute developed 100 case studies (10 volumes) covering different aspects of project management to create a repository of experience-based learning for wider dissemination among L&T-ites.
In an online event, IPM released the first volume of the ‘L&T Body of Knowledge’ (BOK) on 27 February, the 118th birth anniversary of L&T’s late co-founder Mr S K Toubro. The book was released by members of the Board of Directors and members of the PMC, including Mr Subramanian Sarma (Whole-time Director and Sr EVP – Energy), Mr T Madhava Das (Whole-time Director & Sr EVP – Utilities), Mr A L Sekar (Advisor to CMD), Prof V T C S Rao (VP & Dean, L&T IPM).
Prof Rajiv Nehru (Dean – Designate, L&T IPM) and Dy Deans Dr Hiren Maniar (IPM Vadodara) and Prof Manish Jantikar (IPM Chennai) were present in the event, as were over 300 L&T-ites.
Prof Rao provided an overview of the L&T BOK initiative and highlighted the roadmap for case study series. The first volume consists of 10 integrated project management case studies. Volumes II, IV, VI, VIII and X will be on specific project management knowledge areas. Volumes III, V, VII and IX will contain integrated project management case studies.
Mr Sarma spoke on the importance of disseminating this copious knowledge to young L&T-ites. Mr Madhava Das emphasised the importance of project-specific case studies, stating that these would serve as a good pedagogical tool for classroom discussion and training of engineers/managers. Mr Sekar noted that such initiatives would enable transfer of knowledge accumulated by individuals to teams and the organisation. The authors were presented digital certificates by Prof Nehru.
