Station Retail

The typical characteristic of any metro station is that it is used by its adjoining/adjacent neighbourhoods not only for a seamless travel but also to fulfil their daily needs. In line with today’s fast paced lifestyles, retail opportunities at stations have been developed to cater to the daily requirements of commuters making the metro their one stop solution.

Businesses today reach out to consumers and deliver products at their homes or at any other convenient place on their way back home or place of work – the metro model is ideally suited for this kind of a distribution model.

Hyderabad Metro Rail, as a seamless and a comfortable mode of travel is not only a boon to the commuters but also to retailers who are encouraged to set up various types of retail stores at the stations.

At HMR, we have developed each station as an independent centre catering to the needs of the traffic plying through it on a daily basis. Each centre is slated to have the following categories:

Retail: Convenience, grocery, vegetable, daily needs & accessory stores

F&B: Quick service restaurants, large format food courts

Service: ATM, medical stores, laundry centres etc.

Total No: of Stations: 64

Type of stations:

Typical Stations: 55

Interchange Stations: 3 (Ameerpet, MGBS & Parade Grounds)

Special Stations: 4 (Hi-Tech City, Punjagutta, Shilparamam/Raidurgam & Begumpet)

Station Retail in a nutshell:

  • A typical station has retail space ranging from 2,500 s.ft. to 9,000 s.ft. at two different locations at a concourse level:
    1. Station Retail Box: Stores sizes ranging from 100 s.ft. to 350 s.ft.
    2. Entry Exit Retail Area: Store sizes ranging from 1000 s.ft. to 2500 s.ft.
