The property market is seeing good growth and more launches of luxurious properties.

Since the market slowdown that was brought on by the dry period brought on by the pandemic, the real estate sector has made significant strides forward. After the demand of buyers returned to normal, many property markets were able to comfortably face the adverse effects of sales slowdowns and financial restraints, and they witnessed a comeback in demand as retail leases climbed on a positive note one after the other. According to the most recent study, which was titled "India Market Monitor – Q1 2023," India's retail space leasing reached a level of 1.5 million square feet in the first quarter of 2023. This demonstrates a joyful growth in both demand and absorption. One of the report's intriguing results revealed a year-on-year growth in retail supply that was 474% more than the previous year for the same time period.

One of the joint managing director of a company stated "The commercial real estate fortunes have witnessed a steady revival, particularly in Gurugram." As a result of the increased demand for organised mixed-use projects, the real estate industry's new trend-setters include high-street retail establishments with residential development projects. The rising trend in retail space leasing across NCR and India demonstrates the strong potential and demand for these projects from both consumer brands and customer bases. The old beliefs have been replaced by the new ones, which are stronger than ever. There is a rising impression, as well as a growing desire from consumers, for commercial and residential developments to be pushed out in the area of communities as opposed to in far corridors and major commercial marketplaces. Additionally, companies are working to increase the number of people who buy their products by opening additional storefronts in different parts of the country.

Both Tier 1 and Tier 2 cities have demands for mix-use properties. 

Across the major metro areas, Tier 1 and Tier 2 cities, and other types of cities, more growth and launches have been seen in mixed-use plots for building new projects. The future of the new-generation real estate market in India will likely consist of mixed-use developments. These are projects in which office spaces, retail spaces, hotel units, and serviced residences are all grouped together inside a single organisation. There are a variety of subcategories contained within it, such as shop-cum-offices (SCOs), which dominate the real estate market in Gurugram. On the other hand, high-street commercial developments are gaining the edge in various other regions of the National Capital Region as well as Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities.

Mixed-use properties are becoming more and more popular in Tier 2 and Tier 3 real estate markets, according to an MD. A realistic approach is also being taken by developers, who are finding that investing in mixed-use properties is considerably more economically advantageous than investing in single-use ventures. One of the most appealing aspects of mixed-use developments is the fact that they include residential and commercial components. They feed off of one another, which makes it a better investment vehicle that can be utilised by both investors and developers. The level of interest in such ventures is at an all-time high right now. Even developers are looking for ways to diversify their portfolios and establish new initiatives that appeal to a variety of customer criteria and guarantee good returns.


Mixed-use developments have established themselves as the gold standard for a guaranteed economic windfall. The culture of working at home has been seeing a slow but steady decline. The following transition to work-from-office and hybrid models has resulted in a surge in demand for office spaces, which is a win-win bargain for mixed-use commercial developers as retail space absorption is enjoying healthy growth. This is a win-win agreement for mixed-use commercial developers as the demand for office spaces has skyrocketed.

A chairman stated that "Outside of the main industrial hubs, even outer regions in the NCR are witnessing consistent growth in mixed-use projects." One of the pillars that support the growth of commercial real estate developments in such places is the increasing interconnection of the underlying infrastructure. Mixed-use projects include everything into a single structure; this type of development presents an easy, secure, and financially viable investment opportunity for consumers and investors alike. Because of their low costs and place within the range of expenses that can be comfortably met, investments have emerged as a popular option.
