Hilite is now a well-known brand. What is the success secret of Hilite Builders?
In a decade, I believe, we have matured enough to become one of the most trusted brands in the region. We have acquired a deep understanding of Kerala’s real estate market. Also, we have set standards that are hard to match- adapting to a variety of challenges including project innovations, tight deadlines, exacting building laws and specifications, changing technological developments and evolving customer requirements.

What are the major projects of Hilite, and how they are going to change the infrastructure landscape of Kerala?
From a humble  24-apartment HiLITE Park View to 272- apartment HiLITE Metromax, the first CRISIL rated project in the region, we have come a long way with many completed projects. I would say that we have acquired more than 50 percent of the market share in the Calicut region. More than 10,000 persons would find direct employment with the opening of HiLITE City. Our innovative concepts like mixed-use-development and office space marketing has had many takers.
Can you tell us more about Hilite City?
HiLITE City is a township project with a total area of 32 lakh sq. ft. spanning across 16 acres at Thondayad bypass, Calicut. It has residential, commercial and retail spaces. It comprises of HiLITE Mall with more than 200 Indian and international branded retail outlets, HiLITE Residency with 400 luxury apartments and HiLITE Business park, a project that combines work with leisure,  with over 10 lakh sq. ft. of built-up space.
The Business Park is equipped with all modern amenities including conference hall and board rooms, water bodies, professional facility management, coffee shop etc. The construction of the business park has been completed and is ready for leasing while some of the global giants have already come.

What are your future plans?
We have started the groundwork for a shopping mall in Thrissur. And for Malabar, a satellite township project in 500 acres is in the offing.
