Gurugram-based M3M India has launched another high-end retail project – ‘M3M Route65’ — in Gurugram, next to the Worldmark in Sector 65. Spread across 4 acres, with total saleable space of 4.87 lakh square feet, the company is expecting a topline of Rs 1000 crore from this project.
Commenting on the launch, Pankaj Bansal, Director, M3M India, said, “We are quite aggressive in our retail portfolio and have so far delivered over 5 million square feet of retail space in Gurugram itself. Our new retail project M3M Route65 in Sector 65 is also a state-of-the-art retail project, spread across 4 acres with 4.87 lakh square feet of saleable space. We are expecting a top-line of Rs.1000 crore from this project.”
‘M3M Route65’ is spread across four floors with 727 units, ranging from 170 to 4800 square feet in area, with ample parking space in the basement. “Besides general retail, we have also kept more than 1 lakh square feet space on the third floor for food-courts and entertainment zone. This project has close proximity to premium residential complexes like Golfestate, Trump Towers and M3M Merlin. We are also looking forward to launching another 2 million square feet of retail-cum-office space soon in Gurugram,” he added.
Besides M3M, there are a number of other realty giants who have already invested or are looking forward to investing in retail space.
The Indian retail industry is one of the most dynamic industries, contributing about 10% to India’s GDP and 8% of the employment. India is the world’s fifth largest global destination in the retail space. In FDI Confidence Index also, India is ranked 16th (after the US, Canada, Germany, United Kingdom, China, Japan, France, Australia, Switzerland, and Italy).
Delhi is squeezing in terms of availability of residential as well as commercial space, and on the other side Gurugram has been progressively emerging as a much sought after destination because of its connectivity, amenities, luxury residential projects and state-of-the-art retail space. A systematic highways and roads network plan in Haryana, particularly in Gurugram, is expected to further give way to congestion-free traffic, giving a much desired relief to investors and end-users.
Recently a 22 km six-lane Sohna Highway has become operational, which also includes a 7-km elevated section. The Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority (GDMA) is also developing a 15 km cycle track in areas like MG Road, Golf Course Road, Southern Peripheral Road (SPR) and Gurugram-Faridabad Road. This will prove to be a boon for the health-conscious people. Further, the 29-km Dwarka Expressway is also expected to become operational by 2023 and this would also make Gurugram highly approachable and reduce travel time from Delhi considerably.
M3M India is one of the largest players in realty in India which has to its credit over 40 projects which comprise luxury residential, retail, shop-cum-offices, service apartments and plotted developments. The company has to its portfolio about 28 million square feet of overall space.
