HYD 23 IN UNDER CONSTRUCTION SHOPPING SPACE

Delhi-NCR ranks 21st in the global list of cities with the maximum shopping centre space under construction in 2014, according to property consultant CBRE. India continues to see a wave of new shopping mall development despite some developers pushing back completion dates due to financing issues, CBRE said in a statement. "New Delhi is ranked 21, Hyderabad 23, and Bangalore 31, among global cities with the maximum shopping centre space under construction in 2014," the consultant said quoting from CBRE Research's latest report 'Global Viewpoint'. It said 39 million sq m etre of shopping space is under construction across world's major cities and out of that India accounts for nearly 1.5 million sq metre. Around 5,00,000 sq metre of new retail space is under construction in New Delhi. The largest two projects, DLF Mall of India at Noida (204,385 sq metre) and Logix City Centre Mall (1,11,483 sq metre) are both located in Noida. Among tier-II cities, Hyderabad is the most active market with a current supply pipeline (4,83,000 sq metre), which is three times greater than its existing stock. Chennai was ranked 15th in the global list of most active shopping centre development markets in 2013. "Globally, a total of 39 million sq meter of shopping centre space is currently under construction across the world's major cities, representing a three million sq metre increase from 2013. Most of this development activity for shopping centre space around the world is focused in China," CBRE said. According to the report, more than half of the shopping centre space under construction in the 180 countries surveyed is taking place within China's borders. Shanghai takes the first position with 3.3 million sq m of space under construction, which is more than the combined space under construction i the total 86 European cities, excluding those in Russia and Turkey. Just behind Shanghai is Chengdu with 3.2 million sq m, followed by Shenzhen and Tianjin with 2.7 million sq m and 2.5 million sq m under construction, respectively. CBRE South Asia CMD Anshuman Magazine said: "Strong economic growth in many Asian markets has been attracting an increasing number of cross-border retailers. Even though China remains by far the most active market for shopping centre development, the tier I and II cities of India are also among the most active globally". "Unfortunately, however, there continues to exist a dearth of quality shopping space in many of our market places. Along with the large-scale urbanisation of our leading cities and a burgeoning middle class population, it is this that has been driving shopping center development forward," he added. This is the third year that CBRE has measured the level of shopping centre development in the world's 180 major cities. Survey was based on new centres of over 20,000 sq meter and excluded retail warehousing and factory outlet centres.

DHIRUBHAI ENJOYED IN WEALTH CREATION

Leading businessman Anil Ambani today said more than creating wealth for himself, his father late Dhirubhai Ambani derived greater happiness from creating wealth for masses. "If you ever asked what part of being an entrepreneur he (late Ambani) enjoyed the most, he would say, 'I enjoy creating wealth. But what I enjoy even more is in creating wealth for the people of the country,'" the Anil Ambani Group chairman said while addressing an industry event here. It can be noted that the late Ambani, who had a humble beginning as a primary school teacher's son in Gujarat, is regarded as the father of capital markets and the equity cult, who made millions of investors millionaires with the IPO of Reliance Textile Industries in 1977. A person who had put in Rs 1,000 then in the IPO is worth over a million today, going by the price of RIL. Stating that the launch of Kothari Pioneer Mutual Fund, which was country's first private MF in 1993, was his (Dhirubhai's) id…

BEAR GRIP ON INDIAN STOCK MARKET

RECORDS 1 WEEKLY FALL IN 6 WEEKS
Gripped by fear psychosis due to geo-political aftershocks, key stock market indices were on a sticky wicket for the fifth day today as both Sensex and Nifty fell over 1 per cent to hit their one-month lows. The sharp plunge left investors poorer by over Rs 95,000 crore as the market cap stood at Rs 1,27,08,846 crore. Risk appetite took a hit after the Economic Survey said achieving the high end of the 6.75-7.5 per cent growth projected previously will be difficult. This is markets' first weekly fall in six.
Weakness in the rupee against the American currency and lacklustre global shares dragged down the indices, too. The BSE 30-share Sensex remained in the negative zone and settled down 317.74 points, or 1.01 per cent, at 31,213.59, its weakest closing since July 4. The index had tumbled 794.08 points in the last four sessions. The NSE Nifty after cracking the 9,700-mark to hit a low of 9,685.55, finally settled lower 109.45 points, or 1.11 per cent…
