Cochin to be a ‘Business District’ with unlimited development
The Kochi Metro Rail Corporation (KMRC) has announced its plan to develop Cochin as a vital ‘Business District’ of the country, here today. Centered on the NGO quarters, Kakkanad, this milestone project not only promises enormous development in all regions of Cochin but also ensures secure revenue for the Kochi Metro Rail Corporation.
With the Business District coming into reality, Kakkanad will soon emerge as the greatest commercial and tourist hub of the State. The NGO quarters which is located on both sides of the Kakkanad Civil Line Road is just 250 metres away from the Seaport-Airport Road, which makes it the focal point of the city with ease of access to all major destinations. The fact that the proposed Smart City and the iconic Naval Physical Oceanographic Laboratory under the Home Ministry, is within 3kms from this place, makes Kakkanad the most ideal place in Cochin.
With the construction of Smart City beginning next month, a large number of IT-related working class including foreigners is expected to settle permanently in the Business District. Almost all Government offices including the District Collectorate, Engineering Colleges and Guest Houses are also very close to this most favored spot of the city. The Business District with a large number of gigantic malls, multiplex theatres, international restaurants and 5-star Hotels, is expected to generate huge profits for the state.
