LEED certification[edit]

In September 2011, ITPC's first phase building, the Pinnacle, earned the LEED Silver certification in the category "Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance (EB:O&M), version 2009 standard".[4] This was the first multi-tenanted building in India to be awarded the LEED Silver certification.[5]

In October 2012, ITPC was awarded the LEED Gold certification for Phase II, the Crest building, in the same category as the Phase I building. The certification was awarded in the category of Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance, version 2009 standard. It is the first multi-tenanted building in India to be certified LEED Gold under the new version. The building is the second of the three buildings at the tech park and offers 730,000 sq ft of office space. The building has made several modifications and retro-fits to conserve energy and water and reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions.[4][5]


CyberVale IT Park is Ascendas' second IT Park project in Tamil Nadu, after the International Tech Park Chennai (ITPC), and Ascendas' first IT SEZ Park project in India. The IT Park is being developed in four phases, spread across 18.5 acres (75,000 m2) of lush landscape that balances nature and a world-class environment, ideal for IT, ITES and R&D companies.

The first three phases of the park, namely Lakeview, Springfield and Mindtree House provide a total area of 800,000 sq ft (74,000 m2) of business space. Once completed, all four phases will offer business space totalling 1,000,000 sq ft (93,000 m2) which will house a community of some 10,000 professionals.
