Amazon eyes four million sq ft work space in Bengaluru
US-based online retailer Amazon.com is set to pick up more than 4 million square feet (m sq ft) of built-to-suit office space in Bengaluru, in what is being billed as the largest single office space transaction in India in terms of area.
The ecommerce behemoth already occupies over 5 m sft of office space in Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad and Gurugram and has been serving the rest of the world from India. “The request for proposal (RFP) has been floated for 5 m sq ft, but the office part of it will be 4 m sft. The bid has started to come in and will take another 2-3 months to close,” people aware of the deal said. This will make Amazon the fourth largest office space occupier in India.
“We do not comment on what we may or may not do in the future,” an Amazon spokesperson said.
