India remains as one of the top outsourcing destinations in the Asia-Pacific Region and US corporates account for most of the office-leasing activity due to the country’s formidable IT business process outsourcing (IT-BPO), favourable location and skilled resource base (as stated by Cresa).
According to Forbes Global 2000 list, five of the largest IT consultancies call India home. That’s more than several different countries in the world, including China. Indian firms are always top-of-mind along with their foreign competitors.
As the demand for IT service rise, so does the growth of IT industry. In India, Chennai’s Shollinganalur is one of the most sought-after destination for IT companies. The city was one of the early movers in tapping the potential of the technology sector in India. This led to the growth of several new offices by regional and international developers. The one office space which stands out among them all is Workafella. The search for A-grade buildings, IT infrastructure and availability of spacious office space has enabled business owners to take this decision.
The factors which make Workafella beneficial for IT companies include:

Workafella located on Sholinganallur, an established residential and IT corridor towards the south of Chennai features these qualities. The advent of Information Technology business parks and dedicated Special Economic Zones (SEZ) in this region marked the rise of Sholinganallur as the big financial and economic hub of Chennai.
