These aren’t just taglines in an advertising campaign, but values that people are looking to weave into their lives – every part of it. The clothes one wears, the vehicle one drives, the home one lives in are all viewed from a lens of reducing one’s carbon footprint. We have seen this transition come into effect gradually over the past decade, and the events of the past two years have only accelerated awareness and adoption. "As with real estate buyers and consumers, environmental sustainability has become the cornerstone for developers too." For an industry that understands the importance of truly building for the future, sustainability is woven in right from a design and conception phase, to the construction and execution process.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text](https://www.financialexpress.com/industry/designing-sustainable-cities-and-towns-of-the-future/2667594/)[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Read More[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row]...

Slowly but gradually, the intent has ‘progressed’ to a more sustainability-minded approach with the endeavour to build edifices that are good on the environment and future generations. The viability of leading a more mindful, conscience-driven lifestyle has been an important factor in advancing this transformation. Covid-19 and its aftermath have altered the outlook for the real estate industry. The promising growth trajectory post the pandemic is an outcome of leading players adopting actionable and attainable climate and environmental sustainability initiatives. For developers who care, sustainability is woven right from the design stage and through to construction. From the raw materials during construction to the energy efficient enablers and from optimisation of water-use to handpicking flora on the project to ensure they need least amount of water; interventions are made across the spectrum.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Read More[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row] ...

Despite the Omicron wave, the growth underscored the role that record low home loan interest rates played in fueling the home ownership appetite in the country and the developers’ compliance to it to leverage the trend. Homes sales and new supply witnessed an upswing across the top metro cities in Jan-Mar 2022 amid economic indicators signalling an overall recovery in India. According to 99acres Indian Real Estate Report Jan-Mar 2022, over 500 projects were registered under Real Estate Regulatory Authorities across the top seven metro cities, an increase of almost 60 percent when compared to the corresponding quarter in the previous year. Western markets of Mumbai, Pune and Ahmedabad led the pack with nearly 78 percent of the new supply, while Delhi NCR trailed behind with negligible launches. Southern markets like Chennai, Bangalore and Hyderabad accounted for around 21 percent market share. The new supply includes the new launches as well as under-construction housing societies registered under RERA in the quarter ending March 2022.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Read More[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row] ...

Buyers such as business families, startup founders and top CEOs have been paying ₹50 crore to as much as an eye-watering ₹1,000 crore in the past few months for residences.
