Bengaluru set to absorb 11 million sq ft of office space in 2017

In 2017, nearly 11.1 million sq. ft. of office supply will be completed in Bangalore, 50% of which will be concentrated in the ORR belt with the remainder of the supply to be spread across Whitefield, North Bengaluru and Electronic City, said a recent report by Colliers international.
