The residential real estate market has seen sluggish demand for a while now, resulting in high inventory levels across most markets. The current market demand is dominated by end consumers with a clear preference for quality developers having a credible track record of execution. Mahindra Lifespaces has expanded its footprint in a focused manner to offer relevant products at the right price points and locations to its customers. Over the last 4 quarters, the Company launched 5 new residential projects with a combined saleable area of 3.38 mnsft. These efforts have led to a 156% increase in sales value in the period between Q3 FY15 – Q2 FY16 over Q3 FY14 – Q2 FY15. The Company is also strongly focused on execution resulting in the handover of 798 units to customers in this period vs. 545 units in the corresponding period of the previous year.

Commenting on the performance, Anita Arjundas, Managing Director & CEO, Mahindra Lifespace Developers Ltd., said,“Residential sales have shown good year-on-year growth during the quarter. In the industrial leasing space, the quarter was muted at both the World Cities with decision making cycles becoming longer. We are hopeful that improving economic indicators and a strong recovery in commercial space absorption will drive job creation and improve demand in the coming quarters.”
