Kolkata Real Estate has witnessed an unprecedented price rise in the South Kolkata locales like Ballygunge, Prince Anwar Shah Road and Elgin road. The factors behind such a steep rise in select locales are the limited availability of real estate options, successful retail and commercial projects and improved connectivity with improved urban road build quality.
Rajarhat, unlike Salt Lake, is being developed as a new city, with not only residential projects but SEZs, IT Parks, hotels, malls and commercial and shopping complexes as well. This well balanced approach towards development has increased the potential of commercial office demand shifting along with residential requirements. A gradual change is in the offing, with Park Street and its adjacent areas conveniently to emerge as retail high street locations. Over the last two-three years, residential property prices in the area had gone up by over 50 per cent. Developers are anticipating more than 15-20 per cent rise in the prices by this time of the year also.
Thus, it can be concluded by saying real estate in Kolkata is in a high growth phase, especially in office, hospitality, retail and residential sectors. For commercial, it is the EM Bypass, Sector V in Salt Lake, Park Street, Camac Street and Theater Road. For residential, the major is again around the EM Bypass towards the Rashbehari Connector and New Town. There are some pockets in Central Kolkata, but not too many projects are happening here due to the non-availability of large plots of land.
