The IKP Knowledge Park spread over 200 acres in Shameerpet-Turkapally, is a joint initiative of ICICI Bank.[6] With five "innovation corridors", IKP is touted as "the first of its kind knowledge-nurturing centre for Indian companies and a knowledge gateway for multinational companies". The first phase of Innovation Corridor I, comprising 10 laboratories, around 3,000 ft² (300 m²) each, is operational and fully occupied. The second phase of Innovation Corridor I, comprising 16 laboratory modules of 1,700 ft² (170 m²) each, is ready for operation.

The Alexandria Knowledge Park spread over 300 acres in Shameerpet-Turkapally, is developed in a Public Private Partnership mode.

It accommodates advance research and development infrastructure in multiple formats like multi-tenanted research buildings, incubation facilities, build-to-suit blocks and industrial plots. The Park has been developed in two phases. Phase I covers approximately 145 acres and Phase II covers approximately 162 acres of land.
