Hiranandani Group inaugurates TCS Olympus Centre in Thane
Real estate major Hiranandani Group has announced the inauguration of TCS Olympus Centre at Hiranandani Estate in Thane with the hands of Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis. Spanning over 14.5 acres and comprising 2 million square feet of space, the 16 storey commercial building was completed in 18 months.
India’s software giant Tata Consultancy Services signed a deal of ‘built to suit’ commercial office space in the up-market Hiranandani Estate, Ghodbunder Road, Thane. The project is developed as a Green campus and it leverages Rainwater Harvesting and a Sewage Treatment Plant, with Eco-friendly, low-emission systems and fixtures.
The Maharashtra Chief Minister Shri Devendra Fadnavis congratulated the Hiranandani Group on the yet another milestone achieved. Speaking during the inaugural function, the Maharashtra CM said, “TCS Olympus Centre is a state of art technology centre, and will accommodate more than 30,000 employees. This in turn, will create further employment opportunities in the Thane and the Navi Mumbai region.” He was pleased, he added, by the fact that inauguration of the TCS Olympus Centre at Hiranandani Estate, Thane also signified encouraging a digitally responsible economy.
The project also shifts the spotlight on Thane as a residential destination for those who work in the fast growing IT and ITeS sectors. Home seekers opting for a home in Thane, in locations close to their workspaces, will experience the ‘walk to work and walk back home’ option multiplied with well-developed infrastructure, the company said in a release.
Describing the project as a ‘new next-gen workplace’, Dr Niranjan Hiranandani said the state-of the art facility includes a training block, club house and gymnasium, which provides a contemporary and holistic work culture. “The relocation of corporate offices spread over different locations in Mumbai city and a suburb to Thane’s Ghodbunder Road reflects on the increasing attractiveness of its commercial real estate. Excellent connectivity through road and rail corridors in the Mumbai Region makes Thane ideal for corporates to follow the TCS lead, to relocate and expand in Thane,” he pointed out.
