The city has close to 10 mn. sq. ft. of Grade A logistics developments in NH-2, NH-6, and Taratala regions.

“Our observation of the Industrial & Logistics sector in Kolkata recording a 5-year high supply in 2023 with a notable absorption underscores the sector’s resilience and dynamism. The anticipated absorption of 3.5 million sq. ft. in CY 2023 indicates a positive outlook for leasing activities, suggesting a potential surge in demand for commercial spaces”, he said.
