In the 1950s, Chennai was largely oblivious to apartment culture. While metropolitan cities like Mumbai and Delhi were accustomed to community living, individual properties in Chennai were still the norm. All that changed in 1959 with the establishment of Appaswamy Real Estates by the Late Mr. S Appaswamy.
We were one of the firsts to construct apartment complexes with elegantly designed residences that catered to the growing needs of urban dwellers. The quality of our properties in Chennai and Coimbatore has engendered second-and third-generation buyers who swear by the Appaswamy name.
Over the last 6 decades, we have blossomed into a brand that caters to those seeking an experiential lifestyle – a vision reflected in all our properties including our flagship project at Azure The Oceanic. Our apartments and villas are equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and upscale amenities, making our coveted properties in Chennai and Coimbatore home to thousands of happy families.
Late Mr. S. Appaswamy set the foundations for a business that would identify market needs ahead of time. Today, we can proudly say that we are the first movers in bringing the world to our doorstep, whether it is luxurious living or new-age lifestyles. While we have leveraged proximity to urban conveniences in properties within the city, we have developed self-sustaining townships in the suburbs to deliver unparalleled experiences irrespective of location. We enable families to build deep roots close to nature, while having immediate access to best-in-class amenities.

Picking up on the latest trend and need of the hour – environment conscious lifestyles – our properties in Chennai and Coimbatore increasingly incorporate these elements. Altezza, one of our latest projects on OMR, combines luxury and eco-friendliness with landscaped gardens, water bodies, and environment-friendly fittings.
Having taken over the reins, Mr. Ravi Appaswamy and Mr. Rohit Ravi have charted a growth path that keeps us at par with global players. Under their dynamic leadership, the brand has delved into new segments, including commercial properties. Superette in Semmancheri and Pammal is our debut commercial brand that houses the finest retailers and restaurants. The mini-mall is situated close to Splendour and Bloomingdale, both expansive Appaswamy projects, and elevates access for residents by bringing experiences closer to home. Its contemporary design, choice of multiple shopping and entertainment options, and proximity, makes it a big hit.

As an extension of the Appaswamy vision to create experiential lifestyles, we established The Residency Group of Hotels in the early 90’s. Today the hospitality arm extends across Tamil Nadu with sprawling properties in Chennai, Coimbatore, Karur, and Pondicherry. Our properties have redefined the standards of business hotels in Southern India.
With expansion into hospitality, Appaswamy has done what it always strives to do - redefine a segment for our audience. After amassing dedicated customers in the retail apartment segment, our commercial properties have turned into a gateway of sheer comfort, richness, and magnificence. We have intricately combined culture with phenomenal spaces to give our customers cherished memories. From unique dining experiences that have garnered a steady following to deluxe staying options that have become a beau idéal for vacationers and business travellers alike, we have transformed hotel experiences for our customers.

In 2016, we decided to take the leap and go international. Nestled in the archipelago of Vommuli Island in Maldives, The St. Regis Hotel is an ultra-luxurious world-class property that attracts thousands of visitors a year. It combines classic sophistication with modern sensibilities, delivering bespoke experiences to our guests. Designed by the WOW architects of Singapore who are known for their bold designs and thoughtful spaces, The St. Regis exudes an other-worldly charm. It is avant-garde, opulent, and reveals a touch of Indian ethos that makes it a remarkable success. With Mr. Rohit Ravi’s keen eye, our hospitality brand is spreading its wings far and wide.
Our collaboration with WOW architects has extended from hospitality to real estate with the development of our trailblazer projects – Azure The Oceanic, Santhome and Altezza, OMR. Their global touch has brought original design, sophistication, and pizzaz to the heart of Chennai. Lush green spaces with magnificent glass facades, that marry the ocean’s charm with the city’s landscape, are defining features of these projects. We are continuously working to keep our projects fresh, innovative and world-class.
Our leaders, Mr. Ravi Appaswamy and Mr. Rohit Ravi, are keen on putting Appswamy on the global map. Our projects are diverse, luxurious, and sustainable, paving the path for a new generation of living under Appaswamy builders in Chennai.
