Keralas office building in Malayalam was the most-expensive building in India, but now that it is the most popular building in Kerala, the state government has decided to build an additional four office blocks.
The project has been approved by the Kerales Cabinet Committee for Urban Development.
According to the project, the Kolaris office complex will house 4,000 employees and a retail and restaurant complex.
The building will be built on the site of the former Malayali Malayam Kerali office, which has been occupied by the office of the Kerala government for more than two decades.
The office complex was also the site where the Kerala Government has constructed a new campus, Keralia College, to cater to its students.
According to an official, the project has taken a decade to complete.
“In the last three years, we have constructed 2,000 new rooms in the building and the number of employees has increased by 200,” said the official.
The official added that the government plans to spend over Rs 100 crore on the project.
