Realty firm Prateek Group has raised Rs 275 crore from Piramal Capital and Housing Finance for its ongoing 40-acre housing project at Ghaziabad. In August 2014, the Noida based developer had launched 'Prateek Grand City' project at Siddharth Vihar in Ghaziabad with an estimated investment of Rs 5,000 crore.
"We have raised Rs 275 crore from Piramal for our Grand City project," Prateek Group Chairman Prashant Tiwari said.
The company would develop 7,000 units in this project in two phases.
"We have launched the first phase of 4,500 units. About 3,000 units have already been sold despite demand slowdown," he said, adding that the company would deliver the first phase by 2019-end.
In the first phase, the company launched units in the price range of Rs 28-63 lakh. Piramal Group had earlier invested Rs 200 crore in another residential project of Prateek Group 'Prateek Edifice' at Noida's sector 107.
"This project is near completion. We will soon give exit to Piramal Group in this project by repaying their investments," he added.
