Affordable housing is a pressing social need.
We see this as a $100 billion market opportunity.

India needs over 5 million houses every year.
We will lead this challenge.

India needs a robust affordable housing ecosystem.
We are creating this universe.

Housing represents a sizeable component of the country´s current urban infrastructure deficit, pegged at 18.78 million homes in 2012 according to the Ministry of Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation.The rapid pace of urbanization owing to rural–urban migration proves a strain to this already weak infrastructure. India´s urban population registered a decadal growth of 32 percent rising from 285 million to 377 million between 2001 and 2011 and by 2050; 900 million people will be added to Indian cities.

The solution lies in expanding the city to provide affordable and well-connected lands for housing development. To meet the affordable housing demand, India needs several thousand acres of urbanizable lands.

We, at Brick Eagle identify these lands, work with local partners to acquire them, and supply the improvised land for affordable housing development. The group currently manages 1250 acres of land valued by Cushman & Wakefield at 3X, indicating capital appreciation and in the process setting the stage for a surge in affordable housing development in the country.

Greater Mumbai

Mumbai is the commercial capital of India and continues to offer a wide range of employment opportunities. About 400,000 people migrate to the city each year. Coupled with the natural population growth, the city’s population is expected to reach 33 million by 2030 from the current 24 million. As a result, the demand for housing in Mumbai is estimated to be over 500,000 units per year.

Recent studies have voted Mumbai real estate market as the most unaffordable in the world. Consequently about 60% of the city's population lives in slums or inadequate housing with poor sanitary conditions.

Brick Eagle observes that the price of urbanizable lands in the outskirts of Mumbai is cheaper than comparable lands in other metros. For instance, we have acquired lands in some of our projects at around $2 per square feet. In light of the massive shortage of affordable housing in Mumbai, we see this as a compelling investment opportunity.

Brick Eagle has identified two key belts as the future self-sustained cities in the outskirts of Mumbai; Eastern Mumbai District (EMD) comprising of various towns in Karjat Taluka (Neral, Bhivpuri, Shelu, Avasareetc) and the belt of NH3 comprising towns under Thanset, Shahapur and Kasara (TSK).

Eastern Mumbai District

Karjat is uniquely located at a critical point co-joining four different directions – Panvel-Mumbai, Thane, Khapoli and Pune-Bangalore. It is set to be a popular railway junction with the international airport and other important projects. Karjat will be the only railway station in suburban Mumbai, located both on the Suburban Harbor line and the Central CST line. Karjat district has eight train stations and is within 90 minutes commute from Central Mumbai. Additionally, it falls on the alignment of the MMRDA 12 lane Multimodal highway.

Thansit-Shahapur-Kasara (TSK)

Thansit is well accessible by suburban trains, located 1 km away from the Thansit station and 3 kms from Kardi station. The area is well connected to Kalyan and Thane - 45 minutes and 70 minutes respectively by suburban train commute.

Shahapur, the largest Taluka in the Thane district, lies on the Mumbai to Agra National Highway (No.3) and is 90 km from Mumbai. It is situated around 25 km from Kalyan railway station, 45 km from Thane, and 55 km from Mulund. It has also been declared as a centre for tourism by the Maharashtrian government.

Kasara lies at a critical junction on the Delhi-Mumbai dedicated freight corridor, which is being developed at a project cost of over $6 billion. The project envisages construction of 5,600 km of railway lines.This corridor will be equipped with an array of infrastructure facilities such as power facilities, rail connectivity to ports en route etc. Approximately 180 million people, 14 percent of the population, will benefit from the corridor’s development. Kasara is also one of the starting points of the central line of the Mumbai Suburban train system, and the gateway to Igatpuri hill station.

Brick Eagle enables affordable housing developers by offering management services.

The reality of affordable housing can come through nurturing and guiding organizations that can sustainably provide economical housing. This belief has led us to partner with likeminded developers and provide them with management consulting including strategy development, brand positioning, product definition and internal processes for sales, construction and vendor management.

Brick Eagle Housing Advisory is currently working with developers holding large land banks pan-India to successfully set up the business processes of their affordable housing divisions.

Sheltrex is a technology-driven housing company.

Sheltrex is a unique outsourced development model that Brick Eagle has pioneered. We recognize that local relationship and knowledge is a key barrier to entry in Indian Real Estate. No developer has managed to achieve national scale in India due to these constraints. Brick Eagle proposes to address this issue through its "City Manager" model. For any given location, Sheltrex shall partner with a ‘City Manager’ who will have strong local presence and will manage the project and risks associated with delivery. These City Managers will be allowed to invest and take a significant stake in the project. We believe this model is scaleable and could help us achieve pan-India presence in the coming years.

The pilot project under the Sheltrex banner is planned on a 108 acre land parcel at Oragadam, Chennai. The project has been designed by Architect Hafeez Contractor and IBM has provided the master-plan to build "Technology Integrated City", a first of its kind in India. Oragadam, on account of its strategic location in the heart of a growing industrial belt in Chennai, has seen a surge in demand for affordable housing in recent years.

These units are developed and sold through cross-subsidies, and distributed to end-buyers identified by the ground-breaking NGO Ashoka. In this way, Brick Eagle ensures that all units are made available to end-buyers - and are free from speculation and market vagaries.


Brick Eagle also manages a Venture Incubator center that nurtures entrepreneurial companies that can fill gaps in the development value chain.

We believe that the affordable housing ecosystem needs a host of support services to successfully deliver projects in the high volume low margin model. These include supply chain companies, project management companies, housing finance companies, contractors, marketing companies, sales companies, construction technology companies and design firms among others.
