Timely completion and handover of a project, while ensuring the highest level of quality – this is how Dr Niranjan Hiranandani, Co-Founder & Managing Director, Hiranandani Group, described the completion of a 16-storey commercial building made to global standards in 18 months. Spanning over 14.5 acre and comprising 2 million sq ft of space, the commercial structure TCS Olympus Centre is situated in Hiranandani Estate, Thane; which was inaugurated by Devendra Fadnavis, Chief Minister of Maharashtra, on November 8, 2017.
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. Delivering this much awaited commercial building in the record time of 18 months stands testimony to Hiranandani’s commitment to timely delivery with uncompromised quality. Also, following global best practices, it is not just about glass and chrome. Developed as a green campus, it leverages rainwater harvesting and a sewage treatment plant, with eco-friendly, low-emission systems and fixtures.
Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis congratulated the Hiranandani Group on the yet another milestone achieved. Speaking during the inaugural function, he 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.
Describing the project as a ‘new next-gen workplace’, Dr 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.
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 completion of this commercial building within a record time-frame encapsulates our efforts, with the right synergy between various teams – be it architecture, engineering or contracts – each has shown exemplary spirit in creating and delivering TCS Olympus Centre, a commercial tower, fully functional with no compromises on the structural stability or safety aspects,” Dr Hiranandani concluded.
