When the third phase is commissioned, Technopark will have a total area of 333 acres with a total built-up area 8 million sq. ft.
The third phase expansion of Technopark is nearly ready for inauguration. The twin towers with most modern state-of-the-art IT/ITES services have been named Aanamudi and Ponmudi, after two mountain peaks in the state.
The 2 towers currently have a total built-up area of 1 Million SF. The remaining 4 blocks planned in Phase III will have an additional 2 Million SF, thus making a total area of 3 Million SF and will be a ‘Special Economic Zone’.
These are “gold rated” buildings with central air-conditioning system. The buildings have 6 passenger lifts and 2 freight lifts, building management system and all other support facilities required by IT/ITES Companies. There is also a 110 KV substation which provides quality power through a dedicated ring of underground cables and provides 100% back-up power.
“Technopark phase III was undertaken with an investment of Rs.292 crore and is expected to create about 40,000 direct and indirect employment opportunities. The new buildings are also considered to be Asia’s largest buildings to get Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design gold rating from the Indian Green Building Council for energy efficiency,” said Technopark CEO KG Girish Babu.
The new facility also has an exclusive bowling alley, incubation centre, conference halls, a bank, ATMs, gym, swimming pool, shopping malls and food courts.
Technopark Senior Business Development Manager M. Vasudevan said that enquiries have been flowing in from ITES companies, and there is overwhelming demand for office space in the Phase 3. Major companies that will be operating from the new tower include HCL, Oracle and CapGemini etc.
When the third phase is commissioned, Technopark will have a total area of 333 acres with a total built-up area 8 million sq. ft. Technopark is the largest IT Park in India with 280 companies providing direct employment to more than 40,000 IT/ITES professionals and 150,000 people indirectly.
