iKeva, OMR

iKeva Chennai is located at OMR inside Agnitio Tech Park, hence has a more formal touch to it. The space is apt for teams that require traditional cubicle styled, high tech offices on rent, although they do have hot desking facility available as well. Some extra perks we noticed here are that you can use the space 24 x 7 {so if you work international hours or on weekends, they don’t have a problem!}, you get a dedicated phone number with customised call answering and a reception service.

With options from community tables, single desks to a verandah seat; The Grid is for those who crave inspiration in the space around them.
