India: Minor Hotel Group (MHG) has announced the first Oaks property in India with the development of Oaks Neemrana, in partnership with Indian conglomerate NSP Associates.

Neemrana is described as a fast developing business hub located south-west of New Delhi, on the Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor, a mega infrastructure project worth US $90 billion, approximately 90 kilometres from Gurgaon and 140 kilometres from Jaipur.

Oaks Neemrana is under development in the centre of the town and is scheduled to open in 2017. It will be located above NSP Arcadia Mall which is also currently under construction and will feature a supermarket, banks, department stores and retail outlets, along with restaurants and family entertainment including a multiplex cinema. An additional internationally branded hotel is under development in the neighbouring tower, which is expected to open shortly after the mall and Oaks.

There will be three different room types: 68 studio apartments; 40 one-bedroom apartments and eight two-bedroom apartments.

Units at Oaks Neemrana will be sold to individual purchasers as investment properties leased back into a rental pool. Cushman & Wakefield is the exclusive sales agent for the property.
