A Grade office Spaces in Mumbai
These are the swanky buildings in a lot of Central Business Districts across Mumbai. They are typically buildings with Glass Elevations and very modern Building Management Systems and with Green Certification from The Indian Green Building Council (IGBC), part of the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII).
These buildings are either owned by a Developer (Example Oberoi Commerz - Goregaon East, India Bull Financial Centre - Lower Parel, Hiranandani Gardens, -Powai) and leased out to various corporates or one single tenant.
Grade A buildings are generally considered to be best in their own ways, with strategic location, high quality finish, elevation, features and of course the tenant profile. Maker Maxity, The Capital, One BKC are examples of A grade buildings in Bandra East. Peninsula Corporate Park, Lower Parel, Kanakia Atrium – Andheri East are good examples of A grade offices spaces.
Grade B buildings do at times live up to the standard of Grade A buildings, but often they are located in an off beat location and hence they are classified as Grade B Buildings for Corporate office spaces in Mumbai. Kanakia Zillon at Kurla is a classic example of an A Grade building and specifications, but Kurla as a location are considered as Grade B.
Grade C buildings usually are old building blocks located across the city of Mumbai beginning from Ballard Estate, Fort, Colaba, Churchgate, Nariman Point, Worli, Lower Parel, Mahalaxmi, Lower Parel, Parel, Matunga.
