ESR invests ₹360 cr to build 57-acre logistics park in Cuttack

ESR India has acquired 57 acres of land in Odisha’s Cuttack, committing an investment of approximately ₹360 crores for the construction and development of ESR Cuttack Logistics Park, which is the region’s only institutional-grade facility.

This strategic move represents ESR’s foray into Odisha, fortifying its position to build value for customers in the eastern region following its first asset, the ESR Uluberia Logistics Park in Kolkata.

ESR Cuttack Logistics Park is a multi-building facility strategically located in Odisha, eastern part of India, where the availability of large scalable development sites is rare. Over time, the Park which has gained prominence amongst India’s largest e-commerce and retail brands, presenting a promising opportunity to cater to the escalating warehousing demands and supporting the region’s growth, has a total development potential of 1.2 million sq ft.

The Park was acquired with one operational building, which is now fully leased and occupied by one of India’s largest e-commerce companies. ESR is on track to complete the construction of the second building. The Park is projected to accommodate six buildings.

Abhijit Malkani, CEO of ESR India said, “ESR Cuttack Logistics Park assumes a pivotal role in reshaping the next phase of expansion for e-commerce, retail, and 3PL customers. The steadfast growth of online and retail consumers in Odisha has motivated us to expand in the region and offer a best-in-class facility integrated with green building features. ESR Cuttack Logistics Park will revolutionise warehousing in the micro market, elevating the logistics landscape and meeting the evolving demands of businesses for seamless supply chain efficiency.”

Driving ESR’s human-centric philosophy, ESR Cuttack Logistics Park will be integrated with the ‘ESR smart mobile app’ to enhance client experiences and enable digital park management. In addition, as part of ESR’s continued commitment to develop and maintain sustainable and efficient buildings, this park will be certified by IGBC (Indian Green Building Council) and integrate energy and water-efficient designs to reduce environmental impact and operating costs for clients.
