New Gurgaon today exhibits most promising growth stories to reckon in the years to come on the basis of the progress made over the last 10 years, value proposition it offers and growth indicators. New Gurgaon refers to the Millennium City’s new sectors 82 to 115.
The micro-market combines affordability with high-end living, offering a wide range of options across diverse range of projects. The key driver for the emergence of this location has been its proximity to Manesar, seamless connectivity with key employment hubs of Sohna Road, Cyber City, Sector 30, and Udyog Vihar along with signal-free drive to the IGI Airport.
Key Growth Drivers:
New Gurgaon is being developed with strict adherence to the Gurgaon-Manesar Masterplan 2031. Infrastructure in New Gurgaon, with its road widths, storm water drainage systems, underground electric cable network etc is the best compared to the other micro-markets of Gurgaon. Most of sector roads in New Gurgaon are built with service roads and have an 84 meter wide right-of-way (compared with 48 meters in Gurgaon).

Approximately 1 lakh dwelling units have already been delivered and nearly 5 lakh residents are living. Moreover, there are roughly 10,000-12,000 dwelling units under development.
Resale and rental rates in the New Gurgaon area exhibit growth and optimism.
