Credtech knowledge platform organises Pune chapter of CRE events

Credtech Knowledge Platform recently hosted a commercial real estate sector event which saw the esteemed presence of leaders including developers, occupiers, experts and policy makers at Pune. The theme of the event was ‘The Future of Workspaces – Vision 2030’.
“The Credtech platform brings together industry experts, interdisciplinary speakers and best practices across the globe, to drive change and the future of workspace. We are dedicated to cultivating a dynamic platform for convergence of ideas, content and expertise. After having organised successful conclaves in South India, we found Pune to be an exciting venue to take our journey forward,” said Sunanda Jaiprakash, Founder and MD, Credtech Knowledge Platform.
Due to positive factors such as location, the presence of industrial and educational institutions, and overall quality of life, Pune has been seen as a long-term growth story. In 2023, the Pune commercial real estate market reported a gross absorption of approximately 6.4 million square feet (msf), comparable to Mumbai’s absorption. Credtech and CIRIL released a whitepaper titled ‘An overview of Pune’s buoyant CRE market.’
Credtech’s Pune Chapter was graced by Sharavan Hardikar, IAS, MD, Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation as Chief Guest. In his address, Hardikar said “Pune has huge growth potential for three distinct reasons. Firstly, it has a pleasant climate for most of the year. Secondly, it has abundant water resources. Finally, it has a great pool of talent that can be readily employed across industries. With public transport and infrastructure improving alongside favourable government policies, we have more reason to be optimistic.”
A distinguished panel of CXOs comprising Shrinivas Rao, CEO, Vestian; Jay Jaydeep Wakankar, Country Leader Management and Finance, Veradigm; Vivek Rachh, Director – Corporate Solutions, Panchshil Realty and Vithal Suryavanshi, Partner, Kotak Real Estate Fund addressed the questions asked by the audience during the event.

The confluence of eco-consciousness, technology, design, experiences emerged as a major theme. Alongside, there was a realisation that developers, occupiers and service providers must work collaboratively to develop sustainable solutions.
Ranjit Gadgil, Programme Director, Parisar spoke about imperatives of air pollution, road safety and sustainable mobility. Over the past decade Parisar has successfully campaigned with Pune’s policy makers to adopt a comprehensive bicycle plan, a pedestrian policy and urban street design guidelines. Parisar has provided inputs to policies such as the Transit Oriented Development (TOD) and Parking Policy.
