Mumbai’s Wall Street
Kanakia Wall Street is an ultramodern corporate building, which reflects the opulence and magnificence of New York’s Wall Street. The state of the art building aims to create work-life balance for all its stakeholders. Spread over nearly 10 lakh sq ft of commercial space, it houses some of the biggest corporates of India. The names include Edelweiss Financial Services, Manappuram Finance, Coca Cola, Spaces, The Times of India, Tradebulls, Decathalon, HSBC Canara, NCC Ltd., and CARE Ratings.
The charging bull is a symbol of aggressive financial optimism and prosperity. Himanshu Kanakia, Managing Director, Kanakia Group, pointed out that this inspired the group to recreate this iconic structure at Kanakia Wall Street. “The building has been built to reflect the surging optimism of the businesses that operate from this space,” he said. The fearless girl replica, he added, reflects the group’s support for women empowerment.
