New York-based Brahma group is an asset management company focusing on the Indian real estate sector.

The company is developing over 200 acre township project at Panchkula in partnership with real estate major DLF. About 1,800 villas have already been delivered in this project.

Brahma group has also tied up with Adani Realty to develop a housing project 'Samsara' on 141-acre land in

"We are entering the commercial real estate project. We are developing a mixed-use project on over 12-acre land parcel at comprising 1.3 million sq ft of leasable area," Brahma Centre Development Vice President Puneet Khullar told PTI.

The project, which is located on Delhi-Gurugram expressway, will have 400,000 sq ft of office space and rest would be retail, food and entertainment.

The construction work is going on in this project and completion is expected by the end of next year, he said.

Asked about investment, Khullar said the project cost is around Rs 17 billion and the same is being met through internal accruals and debt.

The company has not yet started the leasing process and will soon appoint property consultants for this purpose, he added.

Unlike housing sector, the commercial real estate is doing fairly well and has been attracting huge investments from both domestic and foreign players.

Recently, DLF promoters sold 40 per cent of their stake in rental arm (DCCDL) for Rs 120 billion. This deal included the sale of 33.34 per cent stake to Singapore's sovereign wealth fund GIC for Rs 90 billion.

To boost investment in the commercial real estate space, the government has introduced a new instrument called the Real Estate Investment Trust (REITs) through which developers can monetise their rent-yielding assets.
