Notes to Editors


West Pioneer Properties Limited (AIM:WPR) is a leading developer and operator of retail-led, mixed use developments in west and southern India, primarily in Tier II cities. West Pioneer was established to capitalise on the virtually unpenetrated organised retail environment in India, the rapidly increasing middle class, greater transparency in the property market, and improved infrastructure development which provides access to the market.  


The retail side to West Pioneer acquires the land and then develops, leases and manages the shopping malls. The residential development segment develops and sells residential property.  West Pioneer currently has three developments in Kalyan, Aurangabad and Nashik. 


West Pioneer's first shopping mall, The Metro Centre, in Kalyan, 30 miles north-east of Mumbai is fully operational. Leasing at the mall stands at approximately 74 per cent, and the mall is operationally profitable and generating surplus cash. The residential development at Kalyan currently consists of two towers, which are under construction.  Each tower consists of 178 apartments and as of 31 January 2011, a total of 267 apartments have been sold.  The Company is nearing completion on the structure of Metro Plaza, the commercial office space development at Kalyan.
