ESR appoints Arwade Infrastructure Ltd. as Design and Build Partner for its 1st Urban Distribution Centre in Delhi

New Delhi, September 9: Arwade Infrastructure Limited, India’s pioneer Design & Build Company, is set to add another landmark development to its portfolio by constructing ESR’s first Urban Distribution Centre in Delhi. This project will amplify in-city distribution in Delhi with much-needed Grade A infrastructure to support quick commerce activities in densely populated catchment areas of Rohini, Shalimar Bagh, Pitampura, Ashok Vihar and Model Town.

ESR chose Arwade Infrastructure Limited as the project’s construction partner because of the company’s in-depth technical expertise, local land development knowledge, and significant experience in establishing greenfield and complex brownfield projects in line with global safety and quality standards.

At the project’s ground-breaking ceremony, Mr Nitin Arwade, Managing Director, Arwade Infrastructure Ltd., said, “We are honoured to be partners to ESR for their first Urban Distribution Centre in India. ESR successfully developed multi-storey logistics facilities and distribution centres in the Asia Pacific region. We wish to implement their international learnings in the Indian market. Adoption of quick commerce significantly increased during the pandemic, and there is an immediate need for compliant infrastructure to support this demand. Our proficient and dedicated team will bring forth best-in-class development expertise. We believe the backbone of our economic growth is quality infrastructure, and we are proud to be a part of India’s growth story.”

At the occasion, Mr Abhijit Malkani, CEO, ESR India, stated, “We are thrilled to launch our first in-city distribution site in Delhi to support the growing need for Grade A infrastructure in urban areas. India’s digital economy has fuelled the rapid growth of quick commerce. However, the availability of compliant facilities within cities remains a challenge. We want to address this gap in the market by developing our first multilevel urban distribution centre in Delhi and soon expand to other key metros.”

ESR’s Urban Distribution Centre will be IGBC (Indian Green Building Certified) to deliver on ESR’s commitment to the environment.
