In yet another big-ticket real estate transaction this year, the family of industrialist JP Taparia, founder of contraceptive maker Famy Care, has purchased a sea-view luxury triplex apartment for over Rs 369 crore in South Mumbai’s Malabar Hill, said a media report.

The report further revealed that the apartment is spread across a total of 27,160 square feet.

Citing people with direct knowledge of the development, the report mentioned that the deal values the triplex with a total area of massive 27,160 sq ft at nearly Rs 1.36 lakh per sq ft, making it one of the country’s most expensive residential transactions on a per sq ft basis as well apart from the total value.
