Real Estate Visakhapatnam

As various software companies like Encore India, Satyam Computers and Tata Consultancy declared their plans for development projects in the city, speculation triggered a hike in real estate prices in Vizag. NRIs investing in Vizag property further contributed to this appreciation.

VUDA, which plays a crucial role in the city’s development, has launched mega housing projects at Madhurawada and Rushikonda in collaboration with Singapore based promoters at a cost of Rs. 120 crore. The project would incorporate average and large sized apartments.

Individual houses and bungalows are competing with high rise apartments in Vizag. Flats in Madhurawada carry a price tag of Rs.1,200 to Rs.1,300 per sq. ft. Home buyers in Vizag would be able to locate a well-appointed apartment in the Rs. 20 to Rs.25 lakh range, though properties along the beach would be a notch higher.

As investments pour into the city, the need for augmenting hotel rooms has been addressed by leading hospitality chains who would be promoting 4 luxury hotels in Visakhapatnam.

A mega chemical complex, the Mega Chemical Industrial Estate (MCIE) has been proposed in close working collaboration with the Indian Institute of Chemical Technology, Hyderabad. It supports India’s first Greenfield port at Gangavaram, 15 kms away through the proposed coastal corridor


Visakhapatnam has seen unprecedented growth of 23.36% in real estate since December 2006, recording the highest in Andhra Pradesh after Rangareddy and Hyderabad districts.

Property transactions in Vizag were close to Rs. 6,000 crore during 2006-07, with the Stamps and Registration Department collecting a whopping Rs. 210 crore on the deals. The quick appreciation of land rates in Visakhapatnam has led the department to review the figures once in six months.

Commercial properties in Visakhapatnam around the Aslimetta junction have been pegged at Rs.28, 000 per sq. yard, as against Rs. 22,500 per sq. yard a couple of months ago. The table below gives a fair idea of the march of property prices in Visakhapatnam:
