Surat Diamond Bourse to be inaugurated in Nov
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has agreed to inaugurate Surat Diamond Bourse (SDB), the world’s largest office building on a single basement. It is a part of the 2,000-acre Surat Diamond Research and Mercantile City (DREAM City). It is being modeled on the lines of the Gujarat International Finance Tec-City (GIFT City) on 100-acres of land. SDB will help the diamond industry to bring in an annual turnover of over Rs 2.5 lakh crore (more than $ 27 billion).
“Pentagon, the USA’s Headquarters of the Department of Defense in Virginia, is at present considered as the world’s largest office building with a constructed area of nearly 65 lakh sq ft. The SDB will have an area of 66 lakh sq ft once fully developed. Constructed area of China’s biggest building CMG Head Center is around 41 lakh sq ft,” said a senior official associated with the SDB project from the beginning.
