The conclusion explores the more recent changes to the local definitions of the “suburbs” as residential areas that now constitute part of a larger, more commercialized region. Dadar–Matunga and its apartment buildings have also changed, given its increasing desirability to adjoining areas has put pressure on the suburban character of the neighborhood—to the point of government-mandated height regulations on the buildings. Its desirability would have been inconceivable, considering the suburbs’ initial difficulty in attracting residents, yet despite these new developments, the area nevertheless symbolizes a pioneering transformation that had defined middle class living. The innovations of apartment living and considerations of public health—first envisioned in Dadar–Matunga—have since come to define a broader sense of community and a restructuring of previous cast systems due to economic and political imperatives.
