Goenka added, “Furthermore, Mumbai ranks 8th and 9th, respectively, for office and residential buy recommendations. These numbers, in a way, indicate that the investment prospect rankings of these cities could move up and push into the “Top-10″ bracket in the years to come.”
Delhi survives with a high demand for quality constructions, with some occupancy problems on B-grade and secondary assets.
The Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor, is another remarkable project by the Indian government that is expected to be supported by Japanese capital to grow eight international-standard industrial clusters between the two cities.
Mumbai is in a recovering state on the commercial real estate side. However its down-town is on stable ground. Commercial real estate is at a boost especially in the suburbs. Slowdown in the process of approval of new projects is leading to oversupply in some extent.
The case is pretty different in Bangalore as the report says. Here the absorption rate is high in case of f commercial office inventory.
Since all the three mega cities are reflecting a positive vibe in development of architecture, thus, foreign inflows by institutional players is certain to happen. Investors who initially ran a loss or faced a tough time during 2006-07 are now eager to be a part of the real estate industry.
Overall in Asia, real estate markets are expected to remain resilient despite weakening economic fundamentals throughout 2016, as capital continues to flow into the industry from a variety of investment sources, both domestic and international. Japan remains a favored country for real estate activity, with Tokyo and Osaka ranked first and fourth, respectively, in terms of investment for next year,” Goenka added.
