Chennai’s ascent as an office market

Chennai is quickly growing into a prominent office market in India, registering healthy demand and supply metrics in recent years. According to a report by property consultancy Savills, Chennai saw a 31% year-on-year growth in demand for office leasing at a decade-high 9.6 million square feet in 2023. In this, co-working spaces emerged as a driving force, constituting nearly 20% of the total commercial real estate absorption.

“Chennai has emerged as a thriving business landscape among freelancers, entrepreneurs, enterprises as well as global capability centres," WeWork India said, adding that there is a strong demand stemming from various industries, including agri-tech, manufacturing, IT/ITES/ HR, among others.

“Chennai’s dynamic ecosystem perfectly aligns with our vision of empowering businesses of all sizes, from budding startups to established global hubs,” Virwani said.

WeWork entered India in 2017 and has since expanded its presence to 55 locations across the country. It is present in New Delhi, Gurugram, Noida, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Pune and Hyderabad.
