The super luxury apartments spread over one or more floors will be priced in the range of Rs 30 crore and Rs 100 crore. Other than the Provenance Land, the firm will also be working on another Four Seasons projects in Bengaluru. “Our aim in India is to not only do luxury projects, but to work on design-driven projects that transcend pre-conceived notions of how luxury is defined. We don’t want to regurgitate old ideas into new projects we like projects that come with interesting challenges,” he said. The firm has around 60 assignments, including hotels,luxury residences and high-end retail projects, across 16 countries.

"It's a great opportunity — we are aiming to make India one of our top three revenue generating markets in the next five years. India has a much more informed middle class, which has longer legs in the grand scheme of things. There's a lot of growth opportunity for India because of this, and it's only moving upwards," Pushelberg, told ET in an exclusive interaction.
