This latest agreement follows significant property deals by Amazon, including the acquisition of over 1.45 million square feet in Bengaluru, Gurugram, and Hyderabad. These spaces will serve various functions, including web services, development centers, seller services, and transportation services.

While initially slowing expansion plans due to hybrid work models, Amazon is now seeking additional space in Hyderabad and Chennai to accommodate its growing operations, according to sources.

As several IT/ITES firms, including Amazon, transitioned to hybrid work models requiring employees to be in the office at least three days a week, the return to work trend is now gaining ground. Consequently, demand for office space is expected to rise further.

The report added that in the March quarter, office space transactions in India's top eight markets reached 16.2 million square feet, a 43% year-on-year increase, according to Knight Frank. India-facing businesses and Global Capability Centers (GCC) primarily drove these transactions, with Bengaluru leading the market growth. Bengaluru secured the top position with 3.5 million square feet of transactions, accounting for 22% of the total office take-up during the quarter, the property consultancy reported.
