Behind the creation of every landmark building is a vision that challenges the conventional notions of architecture, design, materials and thinking. Often, these structures shape more than just the environments and lifestyles of the people living in them; they shape the future blueprints of entire cities. At Rustomjee, it is our constant endeavour to transform the city with every building of ours. When we incorporate playgrounds and swimming pools into our designs, it's not just to offer our customer better amenities, but to offer their children better childhoods. When we push ourselves to find innovative solutions, it is not so much to save costs, as it is to save our environment.
As a developer, Rustomjee has always believed that form follows function. This is evident in every aspect of our design and the way we plan homes. Rustomjee also lays special emphasis on the quality of its homes and expects everyone in the team to follow the rule of 'Better, not cheaper'. We realise that buying of a home is more than just a transaction; it is the realisation of an important dream. Which is why, customer-centricity is the very essence of our brand DNA and the many satisfied customers we've had bear testimony to this fact.
Rustomjee also believes in giving back to the society within which we function and our education initiatives are one of many steps we've taken in this direction. By identifying potential, giving everyone equal opportunity and nurturing talent, we're helping create the next generation of leaders. Since we set out on this journey, we have transformed 10 million square feet of the city into premium townships, corporate parks, retail spaces and over 8,500 homes. In the last five years alone, we've delivered 8 million square feet of construction area, with a special focus on the Mumbai Metropolitan Region.
As we move forward, we hope to go from strength to strength, and aim to add another 13 million square feet to our portfolio in the next five years. Ambitious as this goal may be, we know that with our customers and partners by our side, this dream too will soon be a reality.
