The much awaited DLF Homes have come to Chennai. DLF has recently launched the Garden City on OMR at an attractive price point of Rs2800/- per sq ft. I learn that ICICI Home Search is doing the pre-launch advertising. The Garden City is spread across 58.5 acres and I guess there would be some 3000 apartments in the township. The township provides lot of amenities like Hospital, Clubhouse, School (Padma Seshadri School) etc., If you read through the pre-launch offer, there are no approved plans yet but it seems already 400 flats have been blocked by prospective buyers. It has made a very good opening and lets see how this pans out in the weeks to come.

I think DLF wants to enter the Chennai market and hence offering a lower price. It also needs to build some kind of brand awareness, though not to a very great extent after their IPO. we need to wait and see what the other players who already has projects lined up in that OMR stretch does with the pricing.

With this kind of aggressive pricing by DLF, will it have a cascading effect on the overall real estate prices in Chennai? What do you say?

The entire project brief is given below. I have also attached the route map.
