Bandra Kurla Complex, also known as BKC, is the Secondary Business District (SBD) of Mumbai. It is located between kurla in the east and Bandra in the west, thus, named as BKC because of its centric location between the two locations.
The complex is developed by Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) on marshy land on the north side of mahim creek and either side of the Mithi River and Vakola Nalla. In 1997, the state government appointed MMRDA as the special planning authority to develop BKC as substitute to the Central Business District (CBD)-Nariman Point. The aim was to decongest and decentalize south Mumbai, which saturated due to the influx of population and rapid commercial developments. The entire BKC area is divided into various blocks named from A to I and spreads across an area of 370 hectares.
