In what Amazon described as a “testimony to the company’s commitment to infrastructure investment in India”, the American etailer has come up with a massive 9.7 acres campus in India, its largest globally till date. The campus has come up in the IT hub of Hyderabad, an extremely flourishing IT city in the south Indian state of Telangana.

Amazon’s new Hyderabad campus is company’s first owned campus outside USA and the single largest building in terms of area and head count for Amazon globally. In a prepared statement, the company said, “With Amazon India witnessing a tremendous opportunity in having a very large and active customer base, setting up the new office space marks as an important milestone to the company’s mission of becoming ‘customer centric’”.

The new campus will facilitate team members from different parts of the business, with a diverse range of skill sets, to come together and work on behalf of local and growing businesses.

With 15,000 work points across 1.8 million square feet in office space, built on 3 million square feet of construction area, this is Amazon’s single largest building in the world in terms of total area. The infrastructure has been developed in adherence to Amazon’s exacting standards, designed to facilitate inclusion of employees with special needs and support its diverse workforce. It is also the first Amazon facility to create an Alexa Pod and experiment the Inside Day 1 Alexa Skill (Beta).

With three amenity floors and 12 office floors, each level has a specific theme assigned to it, including crafts, music, art, textiles and such like. The unique design for building this campus includes a combination of granite, high performance glass and metal up to the terrace level. The office is accommodated in two towers – north and south, to provide connection within the floors.
