Bombay House To Reopen After A Year

Tata Group’s iconic Headquarters, The Bombay House, at Flora Fountain, is all scheduled to be inaugurated after a year of renovations, on the occasion of JRD Tata’s 114th birth anniversary, on 29th July, 2018.
Chairman of  Tata Trusts, Ratan Tata and Group Head, N Chandrasekaran will inaugurate the British-era structure, which was closed for business for the first time in its 94-year history, last year in August. Built in 1924 by Scottish architect George Wittet, the heritage structure has undergone interior refurbishment, providing a touch of modernity, with the prime focus on digitisation of security and operations.
A kennel has been built to house stray dogs which famously milled around on the property and enjoyed Ratan Tata’s affection. The Homi Mody Street that leads to the building, too, has been beautified. The renovations have been executed under the stringent vigilance of Mumbai-based architect and urban conservationist, Brinda Somaya whose vision revolved around creating a state-of-the-art lobby in the three-storey building.
Over 550 employees of various Tata firms and interests who were shifted to various locations during the tenure of renovations are all set to move back in the iconic building by the end of this month.
