Initial public issue size of DLF rental arm's real estate investment trust or REIT could be far higher than the past issues due to geographies and type of assets the REIT will hold, said capital market experts.
"This may be the largest public issue of any REIT due to geographic concentration and assets," said a real estate analyst who has worked on past REIT issues.
DLF rental arm DLF Cyber City Developers has properties in National Capital Region, Kolkata , Chennai and so on. DCCDL is a JV between DLF and Singapore's GIC.
Shobhit Agarwal , managing director of Anarock Capital said:" It has more office than IT therefore better grade assets and needless to say bigger market, GIC endorsed and far deeper in terms of tenant relationship and markets like NCR, Chennai, Kolkata."
Embassy Office Parks , a JV between Embassy group and Blackstone raised Rs 4,750 crore last year while Mindspace Business Parks, another Blackstone JV, raised Rs 4500 crore this year through a REIT listing.
