Delhi Aerocity – The New Heart of NCR

Aerocity at IGI Airport is being developed as a “Safe, Smart and Sustainable Commercial District”. It provides highly connected and interactive urban areas for socio-economic growth of the airport community. Being planned by an international team of designers, Aerocity is now proving to be the pride of the city with a world-class commercial zone with well-developed infrastructure, multi-modal transit connectivity and mixed use of space, including an array of international brand hotels, retail spaces and Grade A offices.

Aerocity’s first phase, named Hospitality District already hosts more than 15 hotels, three Grade A offices and retail spaces with well laid out public amenities. The next phase of Aerocity will see well-curated and planned zones, each having its own urban character, public spaces, world class security. It now enjoys seamless connectivity with both the Airport Express Metro and the City Metro line, thereby connecting Noida and North-Western parts of Delhi to the airport terminals. The pedestrian friendly streetscape, ample public spaces and recreational amenities are a high point of the Delhi Aerocity. The use of landscape elements, street furniture and graphic signage provides an integrated design experience through the entire airport landside. The development of the next phase of Aerocity will set benchmarks for city developments and for sustainability.
