Catchment Area Analysis

Catchment Area Analysis

Every site and location has its own merits and demerits which can affect the development potential of the site. The immediate neighborhood plays an important role in either enhances or diminishing these merits and demerits of the site. While site analysis helps us determine the location advantages and site attributes, a catchment area analysis is a must to understand the potential of the site catchment area. 

We map all relevant formats of developments within the suitable catchment of the proposed project to understand both the potential and impact of the catchment. The analysis incorporates not only the market dynamics but demographics, infrastructure developments and policy updates which are likely to have an immediate and long-term impact on the proposed project. Catchment analysis is done to understand the market demand and supply for a particular development format. 

The various stages of catchment area analysis are:

  • Site identification and analysis
  • Location analysis
  • Infrastructure – Present and Future
  • Determining the catchment
  • Understanding the micro level and macro level catchment of the site
  • Detailing the micro and macro catchment market dynamics
  • Drawings comparison and determining the position of subject site with respect to micro market and macro market
  • Observations and Recommendations

Catchment area analysis can be carried out for the following formats of real estate developments

  • Residential developments such as apartments, villas, townships and plots
  • Commercial developments such as offices
  • Retail developments such as shopping malls, high-street and retail outlets
  • Industrial developments
  • Institutional developments such as colleges, universities and schools
