Welspun One Logistics Parks to build warehousing space to service BMR

Welspun One Logistics Parks (WOLP), announced that it has acquired 40 acres of land, located on the Malur-Hosur road, to set up a large-scale warehousing facility. With a development potential of ~1 million square feet and a total project cost of INR 300 Cr, the facility will service the Bengaluru Metropolitan region’s (BMR’s) industrial and warehousing demand for space.
Bengaluru has historically been a warehousing supply starved market with limited institutional developer presence in the Grade A space; however, demand has witnessed a significant uptick on the back of the post COVID E-Commerce boom. As per research estimates by various International Property Consultants (IPCs), demand for both warehousing and industrial space in Bengaluru is expected to be ~15-20 million square feet over the next 3 years. This acquisition comes at an opportune time giving WOLP an early mover advantage while helping the firm capitalize on the shifting customer preference towards Grade A warehouses.
Talking about the strategic expansion, B.K. Goenka, Chairman, Welspun Group commented, “South India has always been an important market for us, and this is a crucial first step towards building a presence in the region by developing logistics infrastructure. WOLP has made significant progress in supporting the county’s warehousing network in a short span of time – from our flagship Park in Bhiwandi, Maharashtra to the more recent acquisitions in Farukhnagar, Haryana and Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh. Our current acquisition will deepen our Fund Portfolio as well as strengthen our vision of being a pan India warehousing player.”
