Kochi: Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan Sunday inaugurated the 4 lakh square feet latest IT building, ‘Jyothirmaya’ at the Infopark near here.
Dedicating the 9-storeyed building, constructed over six acres of land, he said 80,000 job opportunities will be created when the buildings constructed during second phase of development at Infopark become fully operational.
‘Jyothirmaya’, constructed as part of the second phase of development at Infopark, will generate 4,000 job opportunities in the field of IT sector, Vijayan said.
He said the second phase of Infopark that is being developed on 160 acres on the shores of Kadamprayar river has been envisaged as a ‘walk to work’ technology campus.
About one lakh job opportunities are expected to be generated in five years once the development of first and second phase of Infopark is completed, the Chief Minister said.
Designed to international standards, ‘Jyothirmaya’ has a separate 6-storeyed 150,000 sq feet block that will provide parking facility and space for other commercial activities such as banks, ATMs, and food courts for IT professionals working here, he said.
At present, 15 companies have taken up space in the new building, which offers space in small and big formats and at the same time caters to small medium companies and big multinationals.
The Chief Minister said the growth of Infopark gives a lot of expectation at a time of global recession.
Kakkanad area of Kochi will become the one and only IT corridor of the country once the Infopark Phase 2 and Smart City will be fully operational, Vijayan said.
