DLF Would Invest Rs 1700 Crore In A New Gurugram Shopping Mall This Year

DLF is expected to begin construction of a new 25 lakh square feet shopping mall in Gurugram this quarter at a cost of about 1700 crore in order to expand its company amid a boom in demand for premium real estate space from retailers.

DLF currently has a retail footprint of around 42 lakh square feet, consisting of nine properties, including malls and shopping centres, primarily in Delhi-NCR. DLF Limited owns around 3.4 lakh square feet of retail space, with the remainder owned by DLF Cyber City Developers Limited a joint venture between DLF and Singapore sovereign wealth fund GIC.

DLF’s Vice Chairman and MD of Rental Business Sriram Khattar, told PTI that the retail industry has recovered quickly since the COVID outbreak, with robust growth in footfalls and sales at shopping malls. “We are likely to start construction on the Mall of India, Gurugram in the third quarter of this financial year,” said Khattar, who was just promoted to this new role.

When asked about the investment in the upcoming mall, he stated that the company has traditionally owned the land, and the development cost is projected to be around Rs 1,700 crore. According to Khattar, the business is building a 6 lakh square foot premium mall in Goa.

DLF is also building high-street shopping centers near its housing projects to meet the needs of the people who live in the society. These shopping centers are already being built in DLF-phase 5, Gurugram, and Moti Nagar, Delhi. DLF stated in an investor presentation for the first quarter of the fiscal year 2023-2024.
