Amazon India renews its office lease in Chennai

Amazon Development Centre India has renewed its lease for around 500,000 square feet of office space in Chennai. The firm has signed properties in Global Infocity in Perungudi, Chennai, with developer Airoli ITP Development for 36 months, according to the lease record shared by Propstack, a data analytics firm.

“Amazon has been renewing its leases but has not exercised hard options across many locations. All the four renewals totalling 5 lakh sq ft were registered earlier this month,” a person aware of the matter said on condition of anonymity.

The renewal comes on the heels of two larger ones signed by Amazon recently. The US firm renewed a 650,000 sq ft office space on the outer ring road of Bengaluru for development centre business. The firm has also acquired about 600,000 sq ft and 800,000 sq ft of space in Gurgaon and Hyderabad, respectively for web services, development centres, seller services and transportation services.

The latest deal marks the most significant renewal transaction for office lease this year, with companies taking a cautious approach to expansion and embracing more flexible office spaces.

“Despite recent global headwinds that might have been a bit concerning, a preliminary observation suggests India’s office markets continue to exhibit good leasing volumes as of the first quarter of 2023,” said Anshul Jain, managind director, India & Southeast Asia at Cushman & Wakefield.
