When you think of Kochi, what usually comes to mind is the lush greenery, the backwaters, the heaven on Earth or God’s own country. One may also think of the house boats, the ancient architecture, so on and so forth.
However, Kakkanad which is a borough of Kochi is not only known for its natural beauty and scenic idyllic life, but it is known for much more than that. It offers a blend of nature coupled with the latest technological strides. It is the administrative headquarters of Ernakulam. Kakkanad also is known as the IT Capital of Kerala. This unique distinction has been given to it as it accounts for 55% of the IT exports of Kerala.
Kakkanad has always enjoyed an edge over the other places in Kerala and in fact it is considered as a lucrative investment opportunity. This is due to the fact that it hosts several educational institutions. It also is home to various central and state government offices.
Kakkanad is a locale of hustle and bustle; it attracts tourists and corporate workers alike. There are various institutions and establishments catering to this migrant and temporary population. This ensures that the hospitality industry is booming as well. In fact, there are people from all over that flock to Kakkanad, due to the fact that it is home to the CSEZ or the Cochin Special Economic Zone. There are projects such as the Fashion City which is proposed here. It also is home to the largest IT township of India and its IT Industrial Park is the second largest in Kerala. It hosts the Software Export Promotion Zone which is better known as SEPZ. There are several large BPOs housed in Kakkanad.
This is the reason why reputed builders have started large projects in Kakkanad. The projects which are situated near the Infopark, the Smart City, as well as those on the Infopark Expressway will see huge appreciation in terms of their investment. This is not only due to the above factors but also because there is a metro station which is proposed on this Expressway. One large project named Campus Court consisting of luxury apartments would be right opposite to this proposed metro station. This would be quite a grab for those seeking a good investment.
There are educational institutions like Rajagiri too which are in close proximity and therefore, these projects should be easily lapped up by those associated with the IT Industry, students, working professionals and more.
Viveria a project consisting of budget apartments is very strategically placed at a distance of a mere 2.9kms from the InfoPark. This project in spite of it being portrayed as a budget apartment complex, offers several amenities which only luxury projects usually boast of.
It certainly looks like thinking of real estate in Kakkanad might just be a wise decision.
