ILD known as International Land Developers is one the top Real Estate developers in Delhi NCR and Gurgaon on Sohna Road. They are well known for their high end residential and commercial projects. Some of their well-known projects are GSR drive sector 36, Arete , ILD greens , Grand centra ,ILD grand.
Sohna, now known as South of Gurgaon has emerged as a one stop destination for small budget residential projects, abutting the developed regions of Gurgaon. The existing and proposed economic developments are generating housing demand for South of Gurgaon (extensive coverage). This demand is not only from end users, who are searching homes at most feasible locations from their work centres but also from investors who are eyeing the market for capital gains. To cater to this upcoming demand, 25 developers launched their residential projects in the most eyed location. We visited Arete by ILD, a residential development planned on 12 acre of land by the renowned, International Land Developers (ILD) in South of Gurgaon. At Arete, ILD has put on offer 700 units, coming up in 8 towers. Arete will feature a unique 3 acre central park and unobstructed views of the Aravallis. Further to add to its unique appeal these 8 towers are anywhere from 20 floors high to 28 floors high, this allows for maximisation of views and circulation of air.
Locating Arete by ILD
Arete by ILD is positioned in sector-33 which is the first residential sector of South of Gurgaon as per the Sohna Master Plan-2031. There are multiple roads that lend connectivity to South of Gurgaon and link it to various regions within the NCR. This region is well connected to NH-8 via NH248A and Northern Peripheral Road (upcoming). Sohna Road and Southern Peripheral Road render ample connectivity to Arete by ILD.
The Golf Course Extension Road further links Arete to Golf Course Road and MG Road. The business districts of Gurgaon (Cybercity, Udyog Vihar, Sohna Road) can be reached well within a 30-35 minutes drive. Less traffic, developed roads and existing connectivity are some of the major reasons, users are preferring housing at South of Gurgaon over other newer micro-markets in Gurgaon. This region is also linked with the Kundli-Manesar-Palwal Expressway (136 km stretch connecting Palwal to Panipat) a part of which is already operational and the rest goes functional in an year. Connectivity to Arete by ILD will be strengthened due to a 60m wide proposed road that connects Sohna directly to Sector-63 in Gurgaon.
Metro may not provide last mile connectivity to Arete by ILD for now, but existing HUDA City Centre Metro station can be reached within 20-25 minutes from project site, and the nearest rapid metro station will be the Sector-55/56 metro station on the Golf Course road which can be accessed within similar time-frame.
Arete by ILD : The Neighbourhood
With most upcoming locations, the issue faced is lack of amenities in the surroundings and with futuristic developments livability becomes a far sight. That’s the real plus point for the location, as the neighbourhood is already in advanced stages of social development. The education infrastructure – GD Goenka World School, Pathways World School, Ryan International School, KR Mangalam University lie in close vicinity of Arete by ILD. A number of retail chains like Big Bazaar, Shopper’s Stop, Aditya Birla More etc ease the daily convenience for residents. Renowned and trusted names of hospitals like Max, Fortis, Artemis, Park can be easily accessed within 15 to 20 minutes of drive. Luxury hotels including Gateway Resort by Taj, Westin Sohna Resort are in close proximity of project site. As this area gets further inhabited many of these conveniences will also become closer.
Arete by ILD : The Product
Arete by ILD is a collection of beautifully designed 2BHK and 3BHK apartments with 3/4th of these facing the central greens of 3 acres. The developer is offering French windows for these residential unit for occupants to enjoy the breathtaking views of the pleasant surroundings. The sizes on offer for 2BHK variants include 1275 sq. ft. and 1325 sq. ft and the 3BHK variants include 1765 sq. ft, 1785 sq. ft. and 1998 sq. ft.

ILD is offering some additional facilities like Modular kitchen and air conditioning that can be availed by paying some premium above the basic cost.
Arete by ILD : Amenities Offered
A twin level clubbing zone is the epicenter of entertainment at Arete by ILD. The clubhouse spreads across 12000 sq. ft.

The luxury residences at Arete by ILD are an architectural framework designed by the world renowned Warner Wong Design, or WOW, Singapore. Some of their key works include Al Barari, UAE, Taj Vivanta, Bangalore and Solaris, Malaysia.
ILD has launched a RSIP- Real Estate Systematic Investment Plan for the buyers of Arete. A one of its own kind of investment plan, it allows buyers to pay a fixed amount monthly to the developer instead of the mediating financial institutions. In order to curb the financial stress of EMI’s and the long loan process cycle, ILD has devised this RSIP scheme to enable buyers to buy homes by paying RSIP’s as low as Rs. 35000 per month (Further details can be sought from the company).
Construction is in full swing at the site and with spacious park residences at Arete by ILD in making, it is one of a kind project in line with the group’s vision of identifying locations that have potential for growth and the firm is executing projects in these locations to set standards in the industry. ILD is an upcoming brand of the ILD Trade Centre fame in the Gurgaon real estate market and has a number of other residential projects in pipeline.
The ever increasing economic growth prospects in the national capital of the country, complimented with scarce resources paved the way for formation of National Capital Region (NCR). The urban areas of Haryana, Uttar Pradesh started providing the much required momentum for setting up of industries, commercial and residential hubs.
Gurgaon has been responsible for shaping the skyline of NCR, with much of it attributed to the growth trends across Golf Course Road, MG Road, NH-8 and Golf Course Extension Road. The concentration of economic activities in these areas consequently led to a boom in the residential sector and overall development. With the spurt in economic development centered around Sohna, for instance the Industrial Model Township of Sohna, the Western Dedicated Freight Corridor passing through Sohna and the opening of the Kundli-Manesar-Palwal (KMP) Expressway, the conditions are favourable for the residential real estate to witness a heightened demand here.
Gurgaon-Manesar’s population was estimated at ~15 lks in 2011 census, it is expected to touch a whopping ~42 lks by 2031, while Sohna recorded a population of ~67,000 in 2011 and it is expected to rise nearly 10 times to touch ~6.40 lks in the same period of time. These numbers are staggering and propel demand for housing in Gurgaon-Manesar-Sohna belts in coming years.
South of Gurgaon, Understand the Location:
Sohna is geographically placed towards South of Gurgaon (that is where it gets it name South of Gurgaon) and is neighboured by industrial town of Manesar. South of Gurgaon enjoys seamless connectivity with NH-248A that runs from Haryana to Alwar in Rajasthan. NH-248A is a four lane highway well knitted with the NH-8 that intersects it at Rajiv Chowk in Gurgaon. The Northern Peripheral road (NPR) and Southern Peipheral road (SPR) will grant ample connectivity to South of Gurgaon with Gurgaon and Delhi. With the news of SPR going operational this year, South of Gurgaon will get a direct connectivity boost with the Golf Course Road, Golf Course Extension Road and NH8. The Kundli-Manesar-Palwal Expressway that passes via South of Gurgaon and runs between Palwal to Panipat adds direct access to various part of NCR, offering connectivity to various highways. The 52 km stretch between Palwal and Manesar is now functional, with the rest 135 km expected to be completed in a year’s time. This will in turn act as a strategic route for all economic activities planned along the areas like IMT Sohna.
South of Gurgaon will also enjoy direct connectivity with Golf Course Extension Road via a proposed road that runs parallel to NH-248A and connects Sohna to Sector-63A in Gurgaon. This 60m wide road is in planning stages and the completion date is yet to be ascertained. An onward journey from here will lead to Golf Course Road, Mehraul-Gurgaon Road and Cybercity.
The Indira Gandhi International Airport is at an approximate distance of 40 kms from South of Gurgaon and the nearest railway station of Gurgaon is at about 28 kms from the budding micro-market. Speaking of the metro connectivity, the HUDA City Center is reachable within 20-25 minutes of drive and the nearest rapid metro station will be the last station of the Golf Course rapid metro that which is under-construction at present. This rapid metro station of Sector-55/56 of Gurgaon will be reachable, within 25-30 minutes from South of Gurgaon. The proposed project of Pod taxis (a type of personal rapid transport system) will have a station at Badshahpur Chowk, which is approximately a 20 minutes’ drive from here. The project for POD taxis is under planning and will be completed in about 1-1.5 years post commencement of work.
To decongest the traffic at Badshapur Chowk, the NHAI (nodal Highway authority) has planned a 2 km flyover on the Sohna Road over the Chowk. The timelines for completion of the project are not yet announced. The Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor Project (DMIC) is a Government of India initiative that is aimed at reducing the travel time in movement of goods thereby facilitating the manufacturing and tertiary sectors of the economy. The Dedicated Freight Corridor is set to benefit IMT Sohna since it passes through South of Gurgaon and is planned to be completed by 2018-19.
Moreover this region is right at the foothills of Aravallis which are in the protected zones and there are several green belts around the areas designated for commercial uses. This region is very unlike the prime Gurgaon which is now densely inhabited with little green cover left within the city premises.
The social infrastructure of South of Gurgaon is already in place with a number of schools, hospitals, shopping centers, hotels operational. Amongst reputed schools are Delhi Public School, Ryan International School, GD Goenka World School and Pathways International School. KIIT College of Engineering, K.R Mangalam University, G.D Goenka University, JK Business School are amongst reputed institutions for higher education. Key hotels include The Westin Sohna Resort and Spa, The Taj Gateway Resort, Country Inn and Suites, ITC Grand Bharat and Lemon Tree. These hotels attract weekend tourists and corporates on a regular basis for excursions.
Guri Hospital, Alaska Hospital and Vardaan Hospital are in South of Gurgaon while hospitals in vicinity include Columbia Asia, Privat Hospital, Neelkanth Hospital, Max, Fortis and Paras. Retail zones that take care of day-to-day convenience are Big Bazaar, Aditya Birla More and Shoppers Stop apart from convenience stores and centers at residential projects in South of Gurgaon. Organized malls in proximity of South of Gurgaon are Good Earth City Center, Raheja Mall, Omaxe Mall, ILD and Celebration Mall amongst a number of others.
South of Gurgaon, Demand Drivers:
One of the most important factors that determine the fate of a new location is the proximity of the location to office and commercial hubs. As far as South of Gurgaon is concerned, it has good connectivity with the commercial business districts, secondary business districts and peripheral business districts of Gurgaon. DLF Cyber City has an existing stock of 13.2 million sq ft with major occupiers being RBS, GE, Accenture, Ericsson, a 10 million sq ft of existing stock is at Udyog Vihar with major occupiers being Snapdeal, Bank of America, Sapient. Another 12 million sq ft of existing stock exists at Sohna Road and key occupiers include McKinsey, Capgemini and Aricent. Similarly other office hubs like Golf Course Road, MG Road, NH-8, Southern Peripheral Road are all accessible easily from Sohna Road and a number of routes provide alternate connectivity to these business districts in Gurgaon.Giants such as Google are making Gurgaon their prime activity center in India, also there is a lot of demand for offices by young ventures who are making base in this city as it provides requisite ecosystem.
The growing Industrial and Manufacturing hubs will also render demand for South of Gurgaon. IMT Manesar that houses brands like Maruti, Hero MotoCorp and Honda and spreads across a sprawling 3175 acre, IMT Sohna that spreads across 1500 acre and is under-construction at present, the industrial area of Bhiwadi that spreads across 6500 acre and houses giants such as Honda, Saint Gobain and Gillette are all going to add to demand for South of Gurgaon address.
South of Gurgaon, Residential Supply:
To match this upcoming demand for housing in South of Gurgaon, a number of developers have launched their projects at affordable rates when compared to established part of Gurgaon. These are International Land Developers (ILD), CHD Developers, Ashiana Housing, Sweta Estates (Central Park), Silverglades, Supertech, Nimai Developers, Eldeco, Ashiana Homes, Ireo, Raheja Developers, TATA Housing, Homestead Developers, Gold Souk and Mks Ventures. Across multiple product platforms, 25 developers have launched residential projects in Sohna. An analysis of the projects launched indicates that 2 and 3BHK apartments are the most common configurations across projects. Sizes varying from 985 sq ft to 1350 sq ft are predominant configuration sizes for a 2BHK and sizes ranging from 1400 sq ft to 1950 sq ft are predominant configuration sizes for 3BHK. An analysis of the product typology concludes that 74% of the launches are group housing projects, followed by 15% of plotting and 10% of independent floors and the remaining 1% dedicated to villas.
The availability of higher 2BHK and relatively smaller sizes is also possible because of regulatory reasons as more density is allowed per acre of development at South of Gurgaon than in Gurgaon. This was need of the hour as unit costs in Gurgaon were going out of reach of several in the middle class income brackets.
South of Gurgaon, Price Trends and Affordability:
One of the factors that is turning the table in favor of South of Gurgaon is the pricing and the affordable nature of residential projects. When compared to Gurgaon and its developed residential markets such as Golf Course Road or Golf Course Extension road, price difference is almost 50% or more! The current pricing at South of Gurgaon ranges from Rs. 4200 to Rs. 4500 per sqft and this lends the tag of an affordable destination to the market. A weighted average ticket size comparison between the price points in South of Gurgaon vs the price points in Southern Peripheral Road (SPR) and Golf Course Extension road reveals that a 2BHK costs Rs. 54 lakh in South of Gurgaon. A similar unit will cost Rs. 80 lakh in SPR and Rs. 1.6 crore in Golf Course Extension road. A noteworthy fact is that the latter markets are located at a travel time of twenty to thirty minutes from South of Gurgaon. In coming years these travel time will shrink further with improvements in infrastructure. This further portrays that the market of South of Gurgaon is in nascent stages at present and the scope of appreciation is huge, a point that should be given serious consideration by investors. With a closer look at the the pricing and group housing developments in South of Gurgaon, it can be summarized that 54% of the launches are below Rs. 60 lakh, 31% between Rs. 60-80 lakh and 15% above Rs. 80 lakh. This provides the middle income group with ample choices for their dream home, which was a distant reality in Gurgaon.
Most of these developments today are being planned with ample and vast views of the hills and greens, something a home owner can take pride in when he is able to reside here. The quality of lifestyle that South of Gurgaon is currently promising to prospective buyers is much different from similarly priced properties in Gurgaon-Manesar belt.
South of Gurgaon, an emerging realty hotspot:
Current connectivity to South of Gurgaon sets it apart from peers in Gurgaon which have witnessed several years of delays in infrastructure development. That said it is imperative for the markets growth that infrastructure development picks up – connectivity to Golf Course Extension road, sector roads, sewage and water lines amongst others.
The residential projects launched by developers in South of Gurgaon will get delivered in 3 to 4 years and by then livability will be more favourable. South of Gurgaon has emerged as an affordable destination and the capital appreciation it will offer is set to benefit the buyers at large. In the next 4-5 years, the proposed infrastructure will be completed and the existing connectivity will be strengthened. South of Gurgaon will continue to be the weekend gateway of NCR, credits to the breathtaking views of Aravallis and the ample choices offered by hospitality majors such as TAJ and Westin. The IMT Sohna will be soon operational and the existing industrial belts of Manesar and Bhiwadi will keep on serving demand for the South of Gurgaon realty market coupled with demand from exiting corporate hubs of Gurgaon. With a foreseeable habitation of the working class and mainly end users in the coming years, and given that projects by developers and Government meet their timelines, South of Gurgaon will witness more socio-economic activities and robust overall growth.
No one can now say that South of Gurgaon is merely a temple town famous for naturally occuring Geysers, but a formidable real estate market that is at cusp of growth.

International Land Developers’ (ILD) Trade Centre has quickly gained reputation of a quality retail and office destination. This ~500,000 square feet complex, incidentally first foray of the young developer in prime Gurgaon, is located in one of the most busy business and residential corridor of Gurgaon, the Gurgaon-Sohna stretch. The Sohna road, now declared National Highway 248A, runs parallel to the Golf Course Road and intersects the Golf Course Extension-upcoming Southern Peripheral Road near Badshahpur. The Netaji Subhash Marg that connects Huda Metro station to Hero Honda Chowk connects to Sohna road at Subhash Chowk thereby providing several access points to various parts of Gurgaon. Subhas Chowk is set to get connected by Pod Taxis to Delhi through the National Highway 8 as per recent announcements. The Trade Centre is located at less than 500 meter distance from the Subhash Chowk and is the first commercial cum retail complex (towards left) when one accesses this stretch of road from Gurgaon’s Rajiv Chowk. Flanked by several residential developments in Sector 47 and Sector 48 (opposite) such as Malibu Towne, Uniworld Gardens, Central Park II to name a few, other inhabited HUDA and cooperative societies, the ILD Trade Centre provides recreation zone at walking distance to residents of this area.
Launched in the year 2006, ILD Trade Centre had received tremendous response from investors of commercial space during early days itself. The property was developed by 2007. ILD Trade Centre offers three levels of basement parking for a quick bite at KFC, Burger Singh, Dunkin Donuts, Dominos, Nutri Vito or to cool his spirits at Baskin Robbins and for a lavish meal with family and friends at Dana Choga Kitchen or Pind Balluchi. The very famous Bikanerwala sweets and savouries outlet is also located here. For a variety of shopping needs there are outlets of – Red Tape, Nike, Lee, Monte Carlo, Gini & Jony and electronics store of Samsung. Mobile service provider – Airtel has a full-fledged service centre on the ground floor. A popular brewery Brewer Street, MS Dhoni’s Sports Fit Gym, Spas such as Avion, Blue Tera amongst others are operational too. Red Kiwi a convenience store that runs out of 3,638 square feet shop on the ground floor of the ILD Trade Centre. On the weekends, to add to the shopping experience, an entertainment and flea market is set up by the name of “ILD Bazar” at this popular destination.
Built on a ~4 acre land parcel, the ILD Trade Centre was designed by the renowned architect Mohit Gujral and constructed by B L Kashyap. While the land parcel is of a shape of a rhombus the wide frontage to the road and the driveway inside the property gives the feel of a regular rectangular development. The first two levels are the retail zone while second to ninth floors are dedicated to office spaces. Some of the marquee tenants include affordable housing developer VBHC, cargo operator Allied Logistics, Girnar Software, FMCG biggie Johnson & Johnson, Visa services provider VFS Global and ILD’s own corporate office (on 9th floor). To serve the regular needs of even the occupiers the retails arena provides ample options for dining as discussed above, and in addition to these are coffee shop – Café Coffee Day and Indian Overseas Bank & ATM. There are four high speed elevators for the office floors and two glass-walled elevators dedicated to the retail floors.
While all shops on the ground floor are accessed from inside the complex a few can be even entered from the outside thus giving the front retail arena a touch of a high street. Ample offset to the complex boundary also provides for a good space to bask in the evening or winter sun or just take a stroll on a hectic day. An impressive Arc at the entrance is another design addition to this building. ILD over time has invested heavily in designs and specifications of its upcoming projects. Be it a two floor impressive gym or varying height towers, both at Arete by ILD, or park living experience at the GSR Drive by ILD. Both these residential developments are coming up at Sohna aka South of Gurgaon. Construction at all the sites of the developer are on full swing now. Their first residential development ILD Greens is coming up for delivery anytime now with the company having applied for the Occupancy Certificate.
Gurgaon is witnessing a large scale development of road and metro network. This will further ease connectivity of Sohna Road and ILD Trade Centre is likely to be one big beneficiary of this trend as commute to this retail cum office destination will improve. Moreover it is still one of those commercial towers where ample parking at any time of the day adds to your experience unlike many other parts of Gurgaon where shortage of parking slots will put you off.

A Brief on ILD
ILD was set up by Mr. Alimuddin Rafi Ahmed in 2006 post acquiring an experience of the real estate functioning and land consolidations for over two decades. The developer has a very logical approach to its projects that include launching projects at locations that have the potential to grow. A very fine example is the ILD Trade Centre, which has now become a growth and profit story for the Group. The Group has set its foot in South Gurgaon and chosen it a potential growth location with its residential projects across budget categories.
All of its current projects abut the major roads and highways in the region. ILD is investing heavily in transforming its development portfolio to be one of the most modern and in sync with the times. They have used services of leading architects and construction firms such as – Mohit Gujral for Trade Centre, WOW Architects, Hafeez Contractor and Design Forum International for the under development residential portfolio.
In our various conversations with the management team and others at the company, we could find that Group is investing in its brand, processes and future growth. Several professionals have been brought into important positions and there is a good thrust to digital initiatives as well. This is turn reflects the firm’s philosophy of “work with the best”, thereby infusing best design practices, international standards and best of services to the industry.
ILD believes in well planned structures that are not only sustainable but also scientifically driven for convenient end user dynamics. And most importantly, they believe in not only scoring customers but also maintaining a long relationship with them which is fruitful both the ways. The process oriented work culture has helped strike the right balance for documentation and the professional approach of employees have equally played a role in plugging the right socket for success.

Amongst the new projects in Gurgaon, International Land Developers or ILD recently announced the soft launch of its project ILD GSR Drive at Sohna. Marketing pundits have rechristened Sohna as South Gurgaon and we continue to use both names interchangeably. However few of us will know that ILD Arete Sohna is the first project by the Group at South Gurgaon and it is in fairly advanced stages of construction with excavation of entire site complete and first set of towers now out of the ground. The firm is putting on display its “lead apartment” a show flat within its first tower to provide prospects or its existing buyers a real experience of living at Arete in Sohna’s sector 33.
ILD Arete Sohna has been designed by WOW Architects of Singapore who came up with an approximately 4 acres of central greens surrounded by 8 towers which will host these flats in Sohna. These towers are of varying heights the shortest one being of 20 floors and tallest at 26 floors. The 8 towers are placed opposite to each other in 4-4 combination with tallest one facing the shortest on the other side of the central green. Every apartment in the complex is 2 sides opened with 75% of them fetching a view of the green landscape and only 1 flat on every floor has only a city view. Similarly several apartments will have a view of the Aravalli hills of Sohna which fall in the protected zone. The central greens are replete with themed gardens and ample spaces to sit back and relax. There is a 12,000 square feet two floor club house with glass façade to provide a unique aura to entire project. On top of it there is an infinity pool, basketball court and tennis court for enthusiasts. There is a mega gymnasium and a yoga room for those who burn calories as a hobby!
Coming to interiors of apartments at ILD Arete Sohna the firm is providing air conditioners and modular kitchen in every apartments. Fittings and accessories will be of premium quality. While there are vitrified tiles in living and dining, the bed rooms will have wooden flooring. There are running balconies in various flats i.e. two rooms connected to single balcony which gives a feeling of more space. A 2BHK flat is of 1,275 square ft, 2BHK+Study is 1,325 square ft, 3BHK+Study is 1,765 square ft, 3BHK is 1,785 square ft and largest 3BHK is of 1,998 square ft. The apartments are priced at about Rs. 4,600 per square ft. of base price while these were launched at about Rs. 3,900 per square ft. almost 20 months back. Construction contractor JJRS is a renowned firm of Gurgaon having engaged with DLF across several of their projects. The set of first four towers are now at sixth floor slab. The site abuts the NH 248 which is runs from Gurgaon to Sohna and will see expansion work in coming years. Sohna benefits from proximity to Gurgaon and current connectivity through a highway which is signal free till Golf Course Extension road turn after Badshahpur. People who can’t afford residences at Extension Road or Sohna Road in Gurgaon can think of owning properties in South Gurgaon for its affordability, accessibility and abundance of greenery in surroundings. On a like to like basis properties in South Gurgaon are about 30% cheaper to those in closest destinations in Gurgaon.
ILD has delivered 1 million square ft. of office cum retail near Subhash Chowk in Gurgaon. This complex is called ILD Trade Center. Its first residential project ILD Greens (Sector 37C) will witness handing over in 2016. The firm has more projects under its expansion plans however it will be important to see handing over in projects at Sector 37C, Gurgaon as well as progress at ILD Arete Sohna, by far the most advanced project amongst the builders in South Gurgaon campaign.
