Of which now only the bungalow of Chinai's built in the 1930s by Claude Batley, a British architect, for Maneklal Chunilal Chinai, a wealthy textile merchant, remains in its originality.
There are two parks in the locality. The first one is the Dadabhai Navroji Garden, also known as Seven Bungalows Garden, which is maintained by the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai. The other is the Nana Nani Park, located opposite it.
