Uber may lease about 7,00,000 sq ft office space in Bengaluru
Uber is in talks to take on lease about 700,000 sq ft office space in Bengaluru to set up its biggest hub in the country, people with direct knowledge of the negotiations told media.
“The facility will help the ridehailing app expand its product and engineering centre and map department in the city to customise solutions for the local market,” one of the persons said. Uber India Systems, which provides support and marketing services to the cab aggregator, “will soon inspect the site and this deal is expected to close in another 2-3 months,” another person said.
Uber India Systems had set up its engineering centre in 2016 to support its operations in India. The facility will see Uber consolidate and expand its operations in Bengaluru. In the past two years, the company has leased around 300,000 sq ft office space in Outer Ring Road in the city.
