Tardeo or Tardeo Road (IPA: [t̪aːɽd̪eːw]) is a residential and commercial locality of South Mumbai, from Nana Chowk to Haji Ali Junction. Tardeo Road is an important arterial road of the city of Mumbai.
The road is now renamed as Javji Dadaji Road from Nana Chowk to Tardeo Circle with post code 400007 and Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya Road from Tardeo Circle to Haji Ali with post code 400034. Post codes 400007 are served by Grant Road post office and 400034 are served by Tulsiwadi post office.
It lies 23 km from the Chatrapati Shivaji International Airport previously known as Sahar International Airport. Tardeo is a well connected to major landmarks in and around Mumbai by road and rail. Major bus routes (Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation) and the Mumbai Central train terminus provide local as well as outstation connectivity.
Tardeo is home to Mumbai's primary Regional Transport Office (RTO) which conducts driving tests and issues driving licenses to the citizens of Mumbai. It also has important commercial offices located in the AC Market Building and the Film Centre Building both on the Tardeo Road.
In 1999, Tardeo and the city of Mumbai witnessed the opening of its first full-fledged shopping mall Crossroads, converted from an old pharmaceutical plant belonging to 'Roche'. The mall was an instant success and it attracted loads of people from all corners of the city, adding further strain on traffic and pollution and a worsening parking crisis.
More and more land is acquired in this part of the city to turn old mills and dilapidated structures into swanky new residential towers.
The Imperial Towers are a pair of residential towers topped out in Tardeo that are set to jointly be the tallest skyscrapers in India.
