Delhi WTC Nearing Completion, 4 out of 12 Buildings Ready for Possession

The project, licensed by New York’s World Trade Centre Association (WTCA), encompasses 3.4 million sq ft of commercial space.

Over the past few weeks, metallic sheets that had shielded a massive construction site at Nauroji Nagar in south Delhi for nearly three years have begun to come down, gradually revealing the sparkling glass façade of 12 newly built 10-storey towers, part of the national capital’s first World Trade Centre (WTC).

Spread across 25 acres, this site has replaced approximately 600 residential quarters that housed government employees for nearly five decades. It is one of seven general pool residential accommodation (GPRA) colonies in the city being redeveloped, along with Sarojini Nagar, Kasturba Nagar, Netaji Nagar, Srinivaspuri, Mohammadpur, and Thyagraj Nagar.

The project, licensed by the WTCA, includes 3.4 million sq ft of commercial space, with the sale of this space funding much of the redevelopment of the seven GPRA colonies.

“As of now, four of the 12 buildings are ready for occupancy. Two central government departments have already started operating from the complex,” said an official from NBCC, a public sector undertaking under the Union Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA) developing the site, who requested anonymity.

Senior NBCC officials aim to complete the WTC construction and sell the commercial space by the end of the current financial year. With 80% of the space already sold, successful bidders include HDFC, GAIL, Petronet LNG, and Oil India.

“WTC’s accreditation has increased its marketability, and we are confident in completing the complete transaction by the end of the month,” the official added, noting that the proximity to the airport, Hazrat Nizamuddin railway station, Central Secretariat, Bhikaji Cama Place, and the Yellow and Pink lines of the Delhi Metro makes it an attractive destination.
