This is the fourth successful JV transaction facilitated between Godrej Properties and local land owning institutions by JLL India since January 2017.

Ramesh Nair, CEO & Country Head, JLL India, said, "Electronic City is one of the key IT hubs of Bengaluru which has spearheaded development of the South Bengaluru particularly along the Hosur Road. With its well-developed social and physical infrastructure, improving levels of connectivity, proximity to ready-to-move-in offices and other key locations in the city, Electronic City offers good returns potential. The development of the region has led to the emergence of affordable residential projects and retail projects in this sub-market. Due to improved connectivity, the region has also witnessed the announcement of mid and upper mid-segment housing projects. This is a significant deal to have happened in the city of Bengaluru. Coming at the beginning of the year, we see this as a positive sign for the market and its growth potential."

Electronic City has about 9 million sq. ft. of operational office space. In 2017, the office space leasing has improved significantly in this sub-market as manufacturing companies and biotech companies leased spaces. In terms of residential apartments, about 5,400 units were launched in and around Electronic City in 2017. About 6,000 units were sold off during the same period. The upper middle class to affordable income group forms the majority of buyers in the Electronic City sub-market.

G. Manoharan Naidu, Managing Director, Lahari Music Group, said, "With the JV we have entered into the development of real estate. The collaboration with Godrej Properties also means that the project will offer best-in-class properties that modern buyers of Bengaluru are looking for. We are confident that the project will redefine modern living in the city."

Land sales in Bengaluru has been good in last two years. Infrastructure developments such as new metro routes, roads and flyovers started operations or construction in last one year for further improved connectivity of many new locations making land deals more attractive. This is improving land sales further in Bengaluru. Overall the city's growth dynamics have been strong as the city continued to hold the largest share of office space absorption in India at close to 8 million, maintaining a significant volume. The residential sales sector also remained stable in 2017 with a launch of over 20,000 residential units in 2017. Sales of residential outstripped new launches, impacting the market positively. The estimated sales for residential units in Bengaluru was 25,118.
