In a statement, real estate consultant JLL India said that the developers have acquired around 2,181, acres of land area in the last 17 months (January 2022-May 2023) valued at over Rs 26,000 crore, with an estimated development potential of around 209 million square feet in 104 separate land deals.
Out of 2,181 acres, JLL said around 578 acres (27 per cent) of the land was acquired in the first five months of 2023 alone.
Branded developers have successfully closed many land transactions in top metros as well as tier 2-3 cities, driven by the resilience shown by the real estate sector.
Delhi-NCR, Chennai, Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) and Bengaluru lead in terms of total land area transacted accounting for 72 per cent share (around 1,576 acres), having a development potential of around 150 million sq ft in 79 separate land deals.
