"Established real estate developers are now targeting new markets, by entering Tier 2 and 3 cities in the country, to launch projects," the consultant said.
In the north, developers are venturing into cities like Panipat, Sonipat, Kurukshetra, Panchkula, Lucknow, Jaipur, and Ludhiana, and in the west, cities like Nagpur, Khalapur, Surat and Palghar have attracted national level players.
Out of the total 1,461 acres acquired in tier II and III cities, JLL mentioned that nearly 92 per cent of the land acquired (1,339 acres) is for proposed residential developments, which include plots, group housing and townships.
"Developers are primarily focusing on low-rise and plotted developments in these cities as the locals are accustomed to living in these types of formats. In fact, around 1,015 acres have been earmarked for plotted developments and valued at over Rs 3,163 crore," JLL said.
