Gurgaon realty perks up

As a real estate destination Gurgaon has witnessed a major swing, from complete obscurity to a much-hyped North Indian growth corridor, followed by overheating, slump and now back to the top slot as a residential real estate investment hotspots, says Mr Santosh Kumar, CEO (Operations), Jones Lang LaSalle Meghraj.

As with new sectors, residential property demand at Gurgaon began on a strong note but in 2007-08 after speculative deals, the market sharply corrected with investors in the residential real estate market cutting prices. Developers too set their focus on the affordable and mid-sized apartments.

The focus on this vital market by domestic and international players has resulted in a visible scaling up of development in terms of commercial office and retail space from the 22 million sq.ft of office space at present to an anticipated 40 million sq.ft by 2012. As a result, Gurgaon is once again witnessing a massive infusion of demand for quality residential properties.

In the main residential areas and projects of Gurgaon, such as DLF Phase I-V, Golf Course Road, M.G.Road National Highway 8, Nirvana Country, Sushant Lok and Sohna Road property rates have again started picking up. Residential as well as commercial properties of different varieties are available in these locations, and demand for them is perking up fast.
