Ansal's Megapolis near Greater Noida

Even as the real estate market slows, developer Ansal Properties and In frastructure Ltd (Ansal API), has launched an ambitious 2,500-acre township project adjoining Greater Noida, in Uttar Pradesh. The company plans to invest Rs26,800 crore over the next five years in developing this project. The township, branded The Megapolis, is extendable to around 9,000 acres, which means that the company has an option of increasing the size of the township to that size.
If the company decides to extend the township, for which it needs government approvals, this would make it among the largest residential projects in India, after DLF Ltd’s proposed residential project, Bidadi Knowledge City on 9,178 acres of land at Bidadi between Bangalore and Mysore.
Other large proposed Indian townships include Ansal’s own 5,000-acre township in Lucknow, DLF’s 5,000-acre township in Dankuni near Kolkata and Emaar MGF’s 3,000-acre township in Mohali, on the outskirts of Chandigarh.Most large townships are coming up in smaller cities because land is relatively cheaper there and companies are looking to set up manufacturing plants and offices to cut costs, thus providing potential residents.
The Megapolis, which has been approved by the Uttar Pradesh government, is about 3km from Greater Noida. Land for the project will be acquired directly from the farmers and the government. Ansal will have to acquire 75% of the land directly from farmers, while the rest would be acquired for them by the government. The company has already bought around 300 acres of land, paying around Rs35-40 lakh for an acre. Ansal plans to fund the project through internal accruals, customer advances and by partnering with financial institutions. It has already partnered with HDFC Bank Ltd, which has picked up a 8% stake in the project.HDFC has so far invested Rs500 crore in the project though Ansal didn’t give the total value of the bank’s stake.
Ansal is starting on the township at a time when property sales, according to real estate brokers, have slowed by as much as 30% in Delhi’s suburbs of Noida, Greater Noida and Gurgaon. Speculators, who would buy property and sell it within a short period of time to make quick profits, have exited the market and as a consequence, Delhi’s suburbs are seeing slower sales.
Ansal says it is not worried about the slowdown. The township will have five natural lakes, a canal, sports facilities and an 18-hole golf course which would be designed by international golfer Nick Faldo. The township will have individual plots, villas, bungalows, multi-storeyed condominiums and group housing complexes. The size of houses will range from 1,800 sq. ft to 4,446 sq. ft.While the company has not fixed a price for the builtup houses yet, the individual plots in the township have been priced at around Rs1,300 per sq. ft. Around 900 acres of the project has been set aside for residential development.
The Megapolis will also be an employment-oriented township with space for hitech industries, information technology and biotech firms.The township will also have convention centres, hotels, schools and colleges.
Ansal’s other township in Lucknow, Sushant Golf City was launched a year ago and much of the infrastructure for the project, such as roads, water and power supply, is ready and construction of the houses has started.
