The project site is located in southeastern Bangalore, where there is a concentration of IT parks, within RMZ’s flagship IT park development “RMZ Ecoworld”.

The integrated office development is equipped with many facilities including fine-dining restaurants, food court, clinic, amphitheater and wellness center which has a gym, swimming pool, tennis court amongst other offerings. The experience of members working in the complex is further enhanced by various initiatives such as holding worker interaction events and using proprietary apps developed to provide greater convenience to workers.
