The planning agency had put up for auction 17 commercial-cum-residential, residential and fully commercial plots in prime locations of seven nodes. However, four of the plots had to be taken down from the auction and finally 13 plots went out for bids.
A 3,909 sqm plot at sector 15 in Nerul received a bid of Rs 2,25,999 per sq meter. Priyanka Regency LLP bought the plot at Rs 88.34 crores, winning over the Builders Association of Navi Mumbai's quote of Rs 1,82,900 per sqm.
