SINGAPORE: Ascott, CapitaLand's wholly-owned service residence business unit, will open its first serviced residence in India and operations will start from August 1.
The 96-unit property - Citadines Richmond Bangalore - is strategically located along Bangalore's well-known Richmond Road in the Central Business District.
The property offers a mix of spacious studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments as well as facilities such as gymnasiums, conference facilities and serviced offices.
Ascott currently has six other properties under development in India, which will cost S$300 million when fully developed over the next three years.
Ascott's CEO Lim Ming Yan said: "Significant demand for serviced residences in India's fast growing economy has resulted in India being a key market for Ascott.
"Besides investment, we are also seeking opportunities for management contracts or lease agreements such as the Citadines Richmond Bangalore to grow our network in the country."
