ABOUT US

Godrej Properties is among the fastest growing real estate companies in


India and was the largest listed real estate developer in India for FY 2015-
16. GPL brings the Godrej Group philosophy of innovation, sustainability and
excellence to the real estate industry. Each development combines a 119–
year legacy of excellence and trust with a commitment to cutting-edge design
and technology. Godrej Properties is currently developing residential,
commercial and township projects spread across approximately 125 million
sq.ft. in 12 cities.

Godrej Properties has a unique Joint Venture based development model and
a decentralized operating model that have together enabled successful and
vigorous growth. We have grown by 5 times in the last 5 years and shall
continue to maintain the growth momentum in the long term. While the JV
model allows for an asset light balance sheet, thereby mitigating financial
risks associated with a debt heavy structure, a decentralized operating model
supports independent scale-up of local operations across various
geographies and a strong business development pipeline.

GPL has been consistently ranked amongst best places to work in the Real
Estate segment in the “Great Places to Work” survey. We take much pride in
fostering an inspiring workplace, with an agile and high performance culture.
We are also deeply committed to recognising and valuing diversity across
our teams
