During the first half of 2014, the maximum private equity investment has been towards the real estate market in Bangalore beating the national capital Delhi as well as the commercial capital Mumbai, reported property consultancy firm Cushman & Wakefield.
Led by high demand for office spaces as well as steady demand for residential property, the city’s real estate market saw PE investments jump nearly 20 times yearon-year to Rs 2,005 crore. The city had received PE investments worth Rs 103 crore in the first six months of 2013.
While Mumbai received investments worth Rs 1,140 crore, Delhi-NCR got Rs 490 crore and Chennai Rs 200 crore during the same period. “Availability of investible leased office assets and stable yields kept the interest levels high,” said Sanjay Dutt, executive managing director, South Asia, at Cushman & Wakefield.
