The company will also execute the real estate project under the asset-light development management model. NeoLiv is also an integrated residential platform, it has two arms – NeoLiv Capital Advisor and NeoLiv Real Estate.
The model comes with a unique residential market, said Malhotra. This model has also been tried in the commercial and warehousing segments, it is also a first in the housing space. The developers are active in the high-end and affordable segments, and there are tons of players in middle housing due to which supply in this segment is getting constrained. The endeavor is also to fill the gap and offer quality homes to the middle-income segment.
The wealth and alternatives-focused asset company, “360 One” has also picked up a minority state in NeoLiv talking the number of equity partners to eight. The company has also focused on offering services to customers after possession of their apartments, including maintenance and facility management.
