How has your company’s journey been so far? Also, where do you think the real estate industry is sailing toward?

Despite the market trying to settle down due to GST, RERA and other initiatives in the last three years, it has picked up pace in sales. Especially after the declaration of Union Budget 2019 and election, the overall market has been growing
well and is fore casted to continue the same.

Today, as the customer demands are increasing rapidly, it is essential for any real estate firm to seamlessly innovate in project design. This is what we exactly pursue at SD Corp. We standout in innovating novel project designs while also maintaining premium quality. For instance, The Imperial is eminent for not just being the tallest tower in Mumbai, but also for its iconic design. Besides design, choosing the right parcel with the right physical & social infrastructure matters the most. Hence, we ensure to spend a lot of time in understanding our customers’ requirements and perspectives with regards to the parcel. Post this comes the construction part, which is usually outsourced to third party contractors by most of our peers in the market. But we are proud to have Shapoorji Pallonji Group as our biggest backbone that executes all the back end activities construction and engineering for us, thus placing us a notch above our competitors.
