G5A is strategically located within the old mill area of Mumbai called Girangaon. The textile mills fostered a unique culture that shaped Mumbai during the 19th and early 20th centuries. Mill workers patronized literary traditions, theater, folk and popular arts. Since the decline of these mills, the cultural landscape has also been impacted.
G5A is an ode to that spirit.
