According to sources, the leasing deal has been signed with Accenture recently for 15 years with escalation clause. The office space has been leased at a monthly rental of over Rs 60 per sq ft, helping Unitech and UCP earn a potential rental income of about Rs 1,000 crore over the next 15 years, sources said.
A Unitech spokesperson declined to comment on the development.
With this deal, about 90% of the total leasable area in this SEZ has been absorbed. The major portion has been taken up by Accenture at nearly 12 lakh sq ft. RBS, Sapient, Bank of America, E&Y and Amdocs are the other major tenants in this SEZ.
Last month, Unitech and UCP had leased 8 lakh sq ft of office space in another SEZ in Gurgaon to US-based consultancy firm Aon Hewitt for 15 years. The leasing deal in its Gurgaon Infospace Tikri SEZ with Aon Hewitt is worth Rs 800 crore.
The two leasing deals, probably the biggest in the north India this year, have come at a time when property market, including the commercial segment, is facing slowdown. UCP had invested in six commercial projects in India in partnership with Unitech, of which five are in the National Capital Region and one in Kolkata.
