Hong Kong-based contractor Leighton Asia, a CIMIC Group company, has been awarded a contract by the Elan Group to build a luxury residential project in Gurgaon, India. Construction is scheduled to commence in October 2023, with completion expected in the first quarter of 2027.

Known as The Presidential, the development comprises 728 apartments, making it Leighton Asia’s largest residential project. It has an Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold target.
