Surat Diamond Bourse Becomes World’s Largest Office Building

The Surat Diamond Bourse (SDB) in Gujarat, India has become the world’s largest office building, surpassing the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. The 15-storey building is spread across 35 acres of land and has nine rectangular structures interconnected via a central spine.

It comprises over 7.1 million square feet of floor space and has a recreational zone and parking area spread across 20 lakh square feet.

The SDB is a “one-stop destination” for over 65,000 diamond professionals, including cutters, polishers and traders. It is expected to save thousands of people from travelling to Mumbai by train to do business.

The building was designed by Indian architecture firm Morphogenesis following an international design competition. It was completed in four years and was officially inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in November 2023.
