Gurgaon :Realty major DLF has leased about 3.5 lakh sq ft of office space to Samsung India Electronics in its commercial complex at Gurgaon that has been constructed at an estimated cost of over Rs 400 crore.
According to sources, Samsung India Electronics has leased about 3.5 lakh sq ft in this office building for its India headquarters.
DLF has leased about 1 lakh sq ft office space to some other companies, including in Executive Centre and Corporate Edge office facilities, they added.
DLF, the country’s largest realty firm, has completed its premium office complex ‘Two Horizon Center’ comprising 11 lakh sq ft area. The office space is being offered both on lease and sale model.
That apart, the company has sold about 2 lakh sq ft of area to corporates for their end use.
This office complex, a US Green Building Council LEED Platinum pre-certified building with occupancy certificate in place, is designed by American architecture firm Robert AM Stern Architects and Hafeez Contractor.
DLF is expecting to lease/sale the remaining 4.5 lakh sq ft area in the next six months, sources said.

One Horizon Centre has been fully leased.
DLF has rental assets of about 30 million sq ft with an annual rental income of about Rs 2,700 crore.
Recently, the company gave an about Rs 800 crore contract to L&T for construction of its new office complex in Gurgaon.
