The response has been “overwhelming and the project has been subscribed 4.5 times. This is akin to Hollywood blockbusters Oppenheimer and Barbie. It is also similar to that of a new Apple phone launch,” said Ohri.

The prices

The prices for the newly launched units are similar to the Arbour launch last year. Ohri also said that the average ticket size for this project is 7 crore, with ticket prices ranging from 6.25 crore to 7.15 crore.

“We have gone in for responsible pricing. Prices have been kept at the same level as last year’s Arbour launch,” he said.

End-users versus investors and buyers’ profile

The end-user versus investors’ ratio is 80:20, he said.

Buyer profiles include corporate honchos, lawyers, doctors, non-resident Indians from across the world, he said.

“We have had both end users and investors buying into the newly launched luxury project. Buyers are from across the country and the world – US, Africa (Tanzania and Nigeria to start with), United Kingdom, South East Asia and the Middle East,” he said.

DLF and Apple phone

The response is akin to a new Apple phone launch. “DLF customers are used to being part of the DLF ecosystem much like Apple customers. They love the experience and are willing to wait for the new launch and continue to stay with the brand,” he said.

The enclave will comprise 1,113 luxury residences across seven towers. These would be 4 BHK apartments and penthouses. ‘DLF Privana South’ will be part of a larger development, DLF Privana spread over approximately 116 acres in Sectors 76 and 77, the company said.

To discourage bulk bookings, each buyer was allotted only one unit, with about 25% of the sales coming from Non-Resident Indians (NRIs), and a booking amount of 50 lakh, as opposed to the industry standard of 10 lakh.

“We don’t promote repeat customers. Those who received a unit in Arbour last year did not get a preference for the new launch,” Ohri told HT Digital.

The project has been designed by architectural firm ARCOP. The 1,113 luxury residences spread across seven towers will be fully fitted-out. These are 4 BHK 3500 sqft units.

Construction is likely to begin in the next fiscal and the handover will be as per RERA guidance, he said.

DLF surpasses 2023-24 sales guidance, say sources

Sources said that DLF has surpassed its 2023-24 sales guidance of 13,000 crore in the first three quarters with the pre-launch of DLF Privana South. Ohri refused to comment.

DLF has more launches planned in the current quarter in Gurgaon in the luxury segment, they said.
