Anna Nagar, Chennai: Case of Serendipitous Growth

Image
The Chennai IT office micro market has evolved around the peripheral areas of the city owing to the requirement for large spaces. The traditional CBD, predominantly catering to the non-IT sector has been around T Nagar, Anna Salai, Nungambakkam, Alawarpet. Within this radius lies Anna Nagar.

In fact by 2018, as per estimates, 15% of India’s IT workforce, resides in Chennai. Quite naturally, the erstwhile and traditional office buildings servi…
