Surat, famously known as the gem capital of the world, holds the distinction of cutting 90 percent of the globe’s diamonds. The newly constructed Surat Diamond Bourse is poised to become a global hub for over 65,000 diamond professionals, including cutters, polishers, and traders, making it a one-stop destination for the diamond trade.
This grand 15-story building sprawls across an astounding 35 acres of land and features nine interconnected rectangular structures, united by a central spine. The impressive construction boasts a staggering 7.1 million square feet of floor space, making it the largest office building worldwide.
The official inauguration of this iconic building is scheduled for November this year and will be presided over by none other than Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The project’s completion marks a significant achievement after four years of relentless efforts.
According to the CEO of the Surat Diamond Bourse, Mahesh Gadhavi, the complex includes a recreational zone and a spacious parking area, spanning an impressive 20 lakh square feet. This not-for-profit organization, promoted by SDB Diamond Bourse, aims to establish and promote the Diamond Bourse in Surat, Gujarat.
