Danube opens new showroom in India city
Dubai, December 13, 2011
Danube Building Materials, a leader in construction, building materials and shop fitting industries, has opened its new Buildmart showroom in the city of Ahmedabad, its fifth branch in India.
The opening complements a recent report made by Crisil Research, an independent and integrated research house, showing a five per cent drop in residential property prices in Ahmedabad, said Anis Sajan, managing director, Danube Group.
The Crisil report, entitled ‘Real(i)ty Next: Beyond the Top 10 Cities of India,’ reports that Ahmedabad’s realty segment has grown leaps and bounds over the last ten years and the increasing number of real estate development projects have driven in a five per cent drop in property prices, thereby offering more affordability for potential homeowners.
The increased interest in real estate property purchasing has prompted the Ahmedabad Urban Development Authority (AUDA) to implement initiatives and programs aimed at fast tracking real estate development activities in the city.
“As the city has become witness to a lot of construction activity, particularly in residential development, the presence of a Danube retail unit proves to be a major advantage, giving developers access to world class building materials and attracting homeowners into the showroom's wide portfolio of home interior products and services,” said Sajan.
The newly-opened Buildmart is strategically positioned right in the heart of the Indian metropolitan city and is split into a 7,000 sq ft showroom and warehouse.
The new branch will offer an extensive collection of building and home interior products, particularly focusing on sanitaryware and ceramic tiles.
“Ahmedabad is currently witness to a flurry of real estate development activity, prompting a five per cent drop in prices that has allowed the market to offer these new residential developments at more affordable prices,” Sajan said.
“We have chosen to set up our fifth ‘Buildmart’ branch here in Ahmedabad as it has now become one of the fastest Tier II cities in India. The opening of our new retail facility demonstrates our eagerness to become a major part of these developments, ably positioning ourselves as the premier one stop shop for all building materials and home interior needs,” he concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
