Planned to be spread across 25 acres, the Lodha Lifesciences Hub will be Mumbai’s first systematically designed life sciences research and development hub, offering a full-stack solution and dedicated support infrastructure to meet the needs of Pharma and Biotech companies.
Palava already has a social ecology in place, which includes educational institutions, healthcare, sports, and entertainment. It would also give a boost to the ‘Make-in-India’ drive with this cutting-edge life sciences solution, paving the way for better employment.
Being built along the Ambernath – Badlapur road, the Lodha Lifesciences Hub will be in close proximity to Dombivli and Ambernath, the newest research & development talent hubs in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region. The hub will comprise of lab space modules designed for varied requirements, multi-tenanted wet laboratories, incubation facilities, and plug & play office solutions.
Expected to be completed by 2023, the project will entail the development of ‘Encube Ethicals’ R&D Centre of Excellence. Encube Ethicals, an integrated pharmaceutical company, dedicated to topical products, will develop a research and development centre spread across ~1 lakh sq ft.
With Palava City’s commitment to create jobs and an environment where people can live, work, learn, and play in one place in a sustainable manner – Lodha Lifescience Hub is definitely one such move in the right direction.
