Considering the overall increase in demand for the luxury housing and the company’s remarkable sales performance in this segment, the company is very much banking on luxury housing to meet Rs 20000 crore sales potential. The company’s luxury project-The Arbour in Gurgaon ‘ clocked a record new sales bookings of Rs 8000 crore in the pre-formal launch phase. Capitalizing on this gain, DLF has decided to launch 5 million sq ft of luxury housing out of the total of about 11 million sq ft of new launches in FY 24.
