Sanjiv Goenka all set to make luxury retail debut
In Kolkata, next year; final talks on with many upmarket foreign brands.
After carving out his share of his father’s business empire, Sanjiv Goenka, the younger son of Rama Prasad Goenka, is set to debut into real estate, with a mall selling “luxury brands” such as Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy (LVMH), Canali, Salvatore Ferragamo, Gucci and Zegna.

CESC Properties, a subsidiary of the group’s power utility, CESC Ltd, is building the city’s first luxury mall, Spencer’s Galleria. It will house 20 luxury brands, a first for Kolkata.

The mall will be ready by the second half of 2012 and is to be spread over three acres in South central Kolkata, with a retail area of 400,000 sq ft.

Sanjiv Goenka, now chairman of what is called the RP-Sanjiv Goenka group, says he guarantees the mall, designed by British architectural firm RTKL and constructed by Larsen & Toubro, would be a destination for people beyond Kolkata. There are, after all, just three luxury malls in India.

“We are speaking to 25-30 brands as of now, and we will secure 20 of them. We will finalise the brands in six months. Four to five have been signed on, which includes Canali and Gucci,” an official close to the development said.

Canali, an Italian luxury brand for men, is represented by Genesis Colors in India. The latter also handles Bottega Veneta, the Italian luxury leather goods line and another potential tenant for the mall. At present, Canali has stores in Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and Hyderabad.

Another biggie likely to be signed on is LVMH, the French fashion major, with 50 brands under its belt.

The contender for anchor tenant of the mall is Lifestyle International (P) Ltd, part of the Dubai-based Landmark Group.

Luxury Retailing

Quote:
Traditionally conservative markets like Surat, Kolkata and Chennai are warming up to luxury, opening a wealth of opportunity for brands such as Louis Vuitton, Armani and Burberry beyond Delhi and Mumbai.

Curious shoppers in Chennai are checking out the first Louis Vuitton store opened a fortnight ago as Louis Vuitton has identified its next stop-Kolkata, where businessman Sanjiv Goenka is readying a 7-lakh sq ft mall that has already leased out about 50,000 square feet of space to luxury brands such as Bottega Veneta, Bally, Burberry, Rolex, Porsche Design and Jimmy Choo.

In Kolkata, Sanjiv Goenka's mall that will be operational early next year. "The mall will not only get shoppers from within the city but from the entire eastern region. We also expect an influx from Bangladesh," says Pankaj Renjhen, managing director, retail services, at property consultant Jones Lang LaSalle, which is marketing the property. Gucci too is exploring having presence in Kolkata.
