Why Morjim, Goa?

According to HVS data, demand in India has only dropped once over 18 years in 2008 due to thecollapse of Lehman Brothers and terrorist attacks in Mumbai. Since then the Compound Annual Growth Rate has exceeded 17 % over the last five years. Demand has increased for almost any property in India by 17 % each year. During even fluctuant times in the Indian economy, demand grew nine per cent over the last 12 months.

"Despite the volatility of the Rupee, Goa still provides one of the best 5-star destination values globally, with the most luxurious facilities comparing to 3-star standards in New York, London, Paris, and St. Petersburg. Naturally, pricing is even more competitive in the global market place," said Gordon Atlantic CEO Dr. William Hyatt Gordon, LEED-AP BD+C.  "Additionally,  Indians  of  means  are  choosing  to travel domestically due to the same Rupee phenomenon and this has opened both the domestic wedding and business summit markets. India has the10th largest economy in the world with a 2012 GDP of approximately UK1.1T/US$1.8T, approximately six percent of India's GDP is focused on the  tourism industry. Convenience and safety are key factors in attracting visitors from North America, the European Union and APEC nations including Canada and the United States. The United States  and  the  United Kingdom remain the number one and two visitor nations, respectively, to  India.  Gordon  Atlantic  is satisfied that regional security agencies in Goa are dedicated to fostering a safe five-star destination for all visitors, and especially women visitors. Gordon Atlantic is excited about the new market opportunities that North Goa, and Morjim provide."

"Gordon Atlantic was able to work through its Hong Kong-New York-London  network  to  identify  a fantastic site  in Goa, India – provide us with solid market Indian  market data, design & construction support, and a project finance strategy to help Tower & Crown launch its first luxury product on the Arabian Sea" said Tower & Crown Director Tony Caplin.

"A colleague of mine, Jason B. Murphy of Indie Consulting Hong  Kong  introduced  me  to  Gordon Atlantic when I was looking for a new development opportunity. Although, Gordon Atlantic is able to pull in it's New York, and London offices to help move forward global economic development projects – the whole time, I felt right at home. William Hyatt Gordon helped me identify Goa for Tower & Crown's first luxury project. I am very proud of the endeavour, and look forward to the successful completion of the project" said Tower & Crown President Philip Chu.

Luxury  Environmentalism

Tower & Crown's proposed luxury product shares Morjim Beach, a nesting and hatching habitat with Olive Ridley sea turtles, an endangered species. They are afforded the highest degree of protection under Indian law through their inclusion in Schedule I of the Wildlife Protection Act of 1972. Poaching eggs or in any manner disturbing the turtles or their habitat is an offence punishable under Indian law. Gordon Atlantic plans to develop an environmentally enhancing beach for these delicate creatures through careful landscape and beach planning designs and policies. The sea turtle will be  a  prominent  feature  of  the facility's culture.
