Mangalore Today News Network

Mangaluru, Nov 14, 2019: Land Trades Builders & Developers is proud to announce that its prestigious freshly completed project ‘Solitaire’, has received the highest real estate project grading of ‘7 Stars’ from CRISIL. As per CRISIL’s definition, the ‘7 Stars’ grading indicates maximum potential of a project for being delivered as per agreed specifications and assured time. This is yet another spectacular achievement affirming Land Trades Builders & Developers as a market leader in delivering better quality to customers.



In 2014, Land Trades became the first real estate developer of Mangalore to voluntarily adopt independent grading of its projects by CRISIL and Solitaire is the sixthproject to be rated by CRISIL. Earlier CRISIL had conferred ‘7 Stars’ grading for Insignia, Sai Grandeur and Ourania and ‘6 Stars’ on Maurishka Palace and Atlantis.

CRISIL’s Star Grading (CREST) involves systematic independent assessment of quality based on an eight-point scale that is specific to the city, with ‘7-Star’ being the highest grading and ‘0-Star’ the lowest. The key factors evaluated in the CREST process are: Quality of legal documentation; construction-related risks; financial flexibility/viability of the project; project background and track record of the project sponsor.


A 32-storey marvel of architecture, Solitaire is a one of its kind luxury residential development boasting of a wide array of modern comforts and facilities like Club House with Swimming Pool, Jacuzzi, Sauna and Steam Room, Fully Equipped Gym and Indoor Games Room. The project is situated on Hat Hill and gives a commanding view of the Arabian Sea. Solitaire is an exclusive abode and an eco-friendly project comprising 145 apartments available in a choice of 2BHK, 3BHK, 4BHK apartments and 5 BHK Duplexes. The eco-friendly features of the project include rainwater harvesting, centralized waste segregation and sewage treatment plant and solar energy generation.

Solitaire was launched with BhoomiPooja which was performed on September 29, 2014. Subsequently the execution of the project was entrusted to MFAR Constructions. Peter Mascarenhas of Archi Technics is the architect for the project. Land Trades has completed construction work on Solitaire as per schedule.


Apart from its projects, Land Trades is also the only firm of Mangalore to enjoy DA2 Real Estate Developer rating by CRISIL. The ‘DA2’ rating indicates that the developer’s ability to execute real estate projects as per the specified quality level and within the stipulated time schedule, and to transfer a clean title is good. The rating reflects Land Trades’ sound marketing and development strategies, and moderate financial risk profile.

At a time when the economy is experiencing slowdown, Land Trades has tried to infuse confidence into the market with its focus on authenticated quality and timely completion of the project despite adverse market conditions. Through the grading of its projects by CRISIL, the company has reiterated its reliability and commitment.
