Project Feasibility Studies

Our Consulting team offers clients realistic solutions in assessing the viability/sustainability of developments proposed/planned across the core real estate segments of office space, retail, residential and non-core real estate segments of education, healthcare and infrastructure.

The growth story of India has been reflected in the increase in development scales across various segments of real estate. Apart from opening new opportunities in the real estate industry, it has also increased emphasis on the identification of optimum development potential involving market positioning, product benchmarking, economic and financial feasibility of these developments.

Our clients include landlords, developers, corporate, financial institutions and government/quasi-government bodies with consulting requirement to evaluate their proposed/planned Greenfield and Brownfield developments.

Assessing the viability of proposed/planned developments

A development concept which is at the stage of an idea, vision or plan typically needs to be evaluated considering all the components that would play a determining role in its implementation and success. Cushman & Wakefield can undertake development impact analysis complimented by financial assessment to provide the inputs on optimal development returns.

Understanding sectoral dynamics and identifying/evaluating opportunities

The real estate market has witnessed an evolution from traditional segments with the emergence of newer real estate products/segments such as education, healthcare, institutional and industrial corridors, integrated townships and urban infrastructure projects such as Special Economic Zones. Cushman & Wakefield considering their varied transaction and advisory experience across sectors can provide an understanding of relevant sector specific dynamics to maximise on opportunities and mitigate challenges.
