CBRE South Asia Pvt. Ltd., India’s leading real estate consulting firm, today announced conclusion of one of India’s largest real estate asset resolutions of IL&FS’ headquarters in Mumbai.
The iconic property located in the city’s business district, Bandra-Kurla complex (BKC), will be acquired by Brookfield for INR 1,080 crores. The marquee property, with around 4.5 lakh sq. ft. of leasable area, houses eminent tenants such as IBM and Paypal.
The iconic IL&FS Financial Centre was one of the first grade A buildings in BKC. The building has played an important role in establishing the micro-market as the go-to destination for office occupiers today.

The complex continues to showcase strong growth amid the current market landscape, with noteworthy domestic and international property investments in recent years.
The deal was a part of resolutions by a government-appointed board, led by Uday Kotak, filed with Hon’ble National Company Law Tribunal Mumbai (Special) Bench / National Company Law Appellate Tribunal. IL&FS has filed the application of approval from NCLT and is expecting the deal closure post approval in the next couple of quarters.
