Chennai: City-based Rattha Group will promote an IT special economic zone (SEZ) in Porur, west Chennai, at an investment of 17.5 billion ($437.5 million).

"The IT SEZ will come up on 26 acres in Porur. It will have a built-up area of 4.5 million square feet, consisting of four blocks," group chairman H.S. Rattha told reporters Thursday.

The SEZ is designed by US-based architect firm HOK. The first phase is expected to be ready by 2009 and the whole project by 2012.

According to Velan C., CEO of Rattha infrastructure Ltd, the proposed SEZ will also have a 100-room hotel, fine dining restaurants, retail outlets and other recreation areas such as gymnasium.
