DLF views itself not as a mere real estate developer. By virtue of the notoriety among the general public associated with this otherwise indispensable sector, being labelled just as a company making buildings adds a touch of facetiousness to the image of the company. Notably, DLF considers itself to be nation builders, a theme often repeated in its marketing campaigns. A closer look at the construction portfolio of the company also supports this belief. True, DLF has built formidable residential towers in its bastion of Gurgaon that sell at prices afforded by only a select few. It is also true that it has built gleaming business districts (branded as Cybercity), which it rents at top dollar, that serve only to strengthen its own balance sheets.
However, a closer look at all these developments also suggests that DLF has invested substantially in developing infrastructure as well. Be it the 16-lane signal free, expressway style road connecting Cyber City, Gurgaon to the Golf Course or the initiation of the Rapid Metro in Gurgaon; DLF has had the vision to build a supporting environment that serves the general public as well. The rise of Gurgaon as an international business destination can be in no small manner be attributed to DLF's efforts.
Continuing this legacy, DLF's second largest presence in terms of commercial office space is in Chennai. DLF displayed vision in investing in land parcels of 44 acres on Mount Poonamallee Road and 26.25 acres at Taramani, in the early to mid 2000s. Whilst the Taramani project has taken time to kick off, with construction beginning just last year, the Mount Poonamallee site was developed as the first IT SEZ in Southern India. IT companies make a beeline to take an office lease in DLF Chennai. However, emerging as the preferred choice of companies has been due to the constant efforts on DLF's parts to keep in line with modern safety and sustainability practices and hasn't been achieved by simply relying on past glory.
DLF Cybercity, Chennai is a platinum LEED certified development and adheres to the highest standards of safety. Other than the standard practices of safety that include round the clock security, access control, CCTV coverage, DLF has raised industry standard by having a fire station of its own with a specially designed fire truck that can tackle major fires even at a height of 61 metres.
On the sustainability front, DLF not only follows the industry standards of having facilities for rain water harvesting, sewage treatment plant and energy management systems, it is perhaps the only private real estate developer in the country to have its own power generation facility.
The DLF Cybercity projects at Gurgaon and Chennai have captive ecofriendly gas-based power generation plants that power all the buildings within the respective complexes. There is zero emission due to the adoption of the Co-Generation Technology concept where the power station not only generates electricity but also useful thermal output. Chilled water for providing air conditioning to the buildings is created by using the hot air emissions from the gas turbines through Vapour Absorption Machines (VAM).
The above information buttresses the kind of extra effort DLF has made to push the envelope and offer industry first services to clients, providing them with safe as well as sustainable facilities comparable to the best in the world. Such efforts have led to leading companies preferring options for office lease in DLF Chennai and Gurgaon for their commercial space requirements.
