• Growing digital integration of civic services to ensure smooth delivery of service
Co-working spaces:
• By 2020, leasing by flexible space operators expected to touch 7-9 million, expansion from ‘gateway’ cities to ‘getaway’ cities
• More established corporates to opt for flexible spaces; large sized deal closures expected
• Flexible spaces unlikely to be limited to office buildings
• Free-addressing policies to boost operator expansion
Affordable housing:
• Housing demand remains concentrated in affordable and mid-end segments
• Projects launched in locations with basic physical and social infrastructure expected to see greater traction
• Given the improving affordability of the population, definition of affordable housing and mid-end housing expected to somewhat blur
Logistics and warehousing:
• Widespread deployment of IoT to create smarter warehouses with improved supply chain efficiencies
• Advent of bigger warehouses that are constructed at greater distances not only from each other but also from residential districts.

It enables a dialogue between all the stakeholders of the industry to revisit the plans, potential and approaches that will cumulatively shape new-age infrastructure.

The report also details the evolution of smart cities, co-working spaces, affordable housing, logistics and warehousing and sets context for the future. It further assesses the role of dedicated policy and regulatory reforms like RERA, REITs, Ease of Doing Business, Housing for All in enabling the much-needed transparency across the realty value chain.
