Top 8 Cities Saw 68 Land Deals for 1,656+ Acres in Nine Months of 2022

  • Of total land deals in 2022 (Jan-Sept), nearly 40 deals for over 590+ acres proposed for residential development, 147 acres for Industrial & Logistic Park and Warehouse, 119 acres for data centres, 115 for mixed-use development & 26 acres for commercial, among others
  • Hyderabad tops land deal share with 46%, NCR comes a distant 2nd with 14%, and  Bengaluru had a 13% share
  • MMR clocked the highest number of land deals, but for small land parcels. 

Land, the most precious finite resource amid rapid urbanisation, has been seeing increased action after the pandemic. Latest ANAROCK Research indicates that the top 8 cities saw 68 land deals accounting for 1,656 acres in the first nine months of 2022. In the corresponding period last year, just 20 land deals for 925 acres were closed across these cities.

With some of the larger deals, there is still ambiguity about the type of development that will take place there. For most other deals, developers and entities have already zeroed in on development purpose:

  • Of 68 land deals closed in 2022 (Jan-Sept), nearly 40 deals of 590+ acres are proposed for residential development. 
  • Over 147 acres in 4 separate deals are earmarked for industrial and logistics parks and warehousing. 
  • 4 deals for over 119 acres are for data centres. 
  • 5 separate land deals for over 115 acres are for mixed-use development. 
  • Approx. 26 acres in 4 separate deals are for commercial development. 
  • Approx. 11 deals for over 659 acres are for miscellaneous purposes including retail and BPO development; development purpose for a large portion of these deals is undecided.

City-wise Outlook

In terms of land area transacted, Hyderabad has seen the biggest land transactions so far this year. In terms of the total number of land deals, MMR clocked the highest number of deals; while the total area transacted was unspectacular, one must also consider the steep prices in this land-starved city.
