A pioneer in leasing office space and developing integrated office parks, the group has delivered 28 MN SFT of commercial properties. In 2012, Embassy Group and Blackstone entered into a joint venture to form Embassy Office Parks - an entity aimed at creating word class office spaces and building business communities. This portfolio includes Embassy Golf Links, Embassy Manyata Business Park, Embassy TechVillage and Embassy TechZone that houses internationally renowned corporates.
Over the last three decades, the firm has developed over 6 MN SFT of residential assets. Some of the most premium luxury living spaces in Bangalore and Chennai include Embassy Boulevard-an uber-luxury gated community, Embassy Grove – the only villament lifestyle in the heart of the city, Embassy Pristine - luxury lake-front green homes, Embassy Lake Terraces to name a few. These projects are designed to obtain IGBC Green Home gold ratings as a part of the organization’s effort in creating sustainable environments.
Embassy has also ventured into Retail with projects like Victoria Embassy and Embassy Paragon. With an intent of providing access to a world class Retail facility in Bangalore, ‘Galaxy’ on Residency Road is developed, which is slated to commence operations this year.
Another entrant into the group portfolio is the Hilton Embassy Bangalore Golflinks, Five Star hospitality to support clients which also complement the business parks.
Setting benchmark in Indian Real Estate, Embassy Group has also set its foot into education and sports. In 2008, Stonehill International School was developed in North Bangalore, the only school in South India offering all three IB programs - the PYP, MYP, and DP. With a highly trained international faculty from across 17 nationalities and world class infrastructure spread across a 33 acre campus, the school is one of the most preferred international institutions in Bangalore.
The group also owns and maintains a state of the art international riding academy – Embassy International Riding School in Bangalore. The facility provides training in Equestrian Sports and boasts of a highly accomplished team.
The Embassy Group strongly believes in developing social infrastructure to enhance the quality of life within the community they operate in. A large part of the education initiative is focused on identifying basic needs that are lacking in some of the government schools, thereafter providing basic support and sustainable measures. Adoption of Government Higher Primary School at Challagatta Village is one such example.
Embassy’s vision for the future is to leverage its tenant relationships and expand the portfolio of IT space throughout India and internationally, besides focusing on developing other business verticals.
