Along with Thane, the company also plans to expand its Phoenix MarketCity Mall in Bengaluru, the official said.

Phoenix Mills Limited’s Thane plans

Elaborating on the company’s Thane plans, Shrivastava said, “We are going to take probably another two-three months perhaps to decide. But it’s seeming to be a large mixed-use development with a combination of maybe some retail, some hotel, we are trying to really determine if residential is the right way to go, that is where the question really is and what’s the best use on this land. So, we will be very, very happy to announce as soon as we have made a decision.”

Bengaluru expansion plans

The company acquired 6.6 acres of land adjacent to Phoenix MarketCity Bengaluru in Whitefield at a cost of about 230 crore in a joint venture with Canada Pension Plan.

“This is exactly adjacent (the land acquired in Bengaluru adjacent to Phoenix Market City). We are looking at how we can amalgamate the two land parcels and be able to utilize the overall development mix in a composite manner. The land parcel has a development potential of 1.3- 1.4 million sq ft,” Shrivastava said.

“This acquisition will help us create a much larger destination with perhaps more retail and more entertainment and F&B options,” Shrivastava added.

Not in the race to become a large residential developer

According to the company, it does not have any active plans on expanding in the residential segment and are very selective about the opportunities.

“We are not in any race to become a larger residential developer. We are being very selective about the opportunities and depending on the value at which we are able to buy land in mature, stable markets where absorption has been consistent, we will continue to look at those opportunities. But I can clarify that today we are not actively looking at any residential growth, new projects,” Shirvastava added.

Portfolio across malls, hotels, residential and commercial segment

Meanwhile, according to the data shared in regulatory filings, the company as of 2023, has a retail portfolio of 11 million sqft that will go up to 14 million sq ft by 2027. It has a residential portfolio of 3.5 million sq ft that will go up to 4.5 million sq ft by 2027.
