According to the latest report from global real estate consultants Cushman & Wakefield, driven by the end-user demand, capital values in the mid-segment at Velachery grew approximately 56 per cent in the last three years due to the presence of good physical and social infrastructure.

In the high-end segment, the East Coast Road (ECR) witnessed the highest capital value appreciation of 64 per cent followed by Anna Nagar at 49 per cent. ECR continues to have a high preference amongst buyers due to its connectivity to the Rajiv Gandhi Salai and quality offerings. Anna Nagar also witnessed continued demand that aided the increase in high-end segment capital values.
Locations such as RA Puram, Alwarpet and Adyar also witnessed capital value appreciation to the tune of 45 per cent in the mid-segment and 40 per cent in the high-end during the past three years, primarily due to continued end-user demand for residential units.
