Apartment Living: Ahmedabad Real Estate Shift: Demand for Larger Apartments Rises Post-Covid | Ahmedabad News

AHMEDABAD: The city is witnessing a major shift in its residential landscape. Almost a decade ago, Ahmedabad was teeming with compact 1-BHK apartments. But now, after Covid, there has been a marked shift in the preferences of middle-class home buyers.
Data from the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation’s (AMC) 2022-23 report shows there has been an increase in residential projects with 2, 3, 4 BHKs and larger apartments coming up across the city, indicating that the middle-class is yearning for more ‘room to breathe’.

Schemes

“With work-from-home (WFH) arrangements becoming more common, the need for dedicated workspaces within apartments has grown,” observes a senior AMC official. Also, the likelihood of extended family staying under one roof may have prompted people to seek more spacious apartments.
Between 2015-16 and 2022-23 financial years, 1.40 lakh rooms were constructed under various schemes.
Of these, 2BHK apartments accounted for 62,181 rooms, followed by 1BHK apartments with 18,623 rooms. While 3BHK schemes contributed 46,415 rooms, the 4BHK apartments offered 13,129 rooms. But after the pandemic, there has been a drastic shift in buying preferences. According to the AMC data, from 2020 to 2023, 61,294 rooms were built.
Of these, 1BHK schemes accounted for 3,588 rooms, 2BHK apartments contributed 28,297 rooms, 3BHK schemes 22,752 rooms and 4BHK-and-above projects built 6,667 rooms. Elaborating on the patterns observed in housing development, a senior AMC official said, “New schemes are mushrooming mostly in the western parts of the city such as Bodakdev, Gota, Ranip, Chandlodia and Sola. Here apartments with 2BHK, 3BHK, 4BHK and even larger carpet area are being built due to rising land prices.”
Most of the new 1BHK apartment schemes are scattered across Maktampura and Sarkhej and in the eastern enclaves of the city such as Lambha, Vatva and Narol. “But in the eastern parts, there are also luxury schemes coming up in Nikol, Kathwada, and Vastral, where there is a more nuanced demand for spacious apartments across income brackets,” the official added. A similar spike was noticed in 2015-16, when 6,521 2BHK apartment rooms were constructed.
