Ankur Gupta, Brookfield's Real Estate Head in India, is making news. Here's why! Brookfield Asset Management has recently acquired Essar's commercial property in Mumbai's Bandra-Kurla Complex, Equinox Business Park, for an enterprise value of Rs 24 billion. This marquee deal is notably among the largest transactions in India's commercial real estate. Known to be a quality investor, Brookfield has an enviable track record of highly strategic and well-considered acquisitions. As Gupta avers, "We are excited to bring Brookfield's place-making capabilities to Mumbai's main business district. We will invest significant capital, introduce more F&B and modern amenities, and establish Equinox as a high-quality office destination." Equinox Business Park comprises four towers, with a leasable office space of about 1.25 million sq ft. Gupta's efforts in taking the asset manager - which has more than a 100-year history of owning and operating assets - to greater heights is worth applauding.
