Sparkling Synergy|Surat Diamond Bourse
As the diamond capital of India, Surat has always been at the forefront of the diamond industry.The city boasts both the Surat Diamond Bourse and the ambitious Diamond Research and Mercantile City, also known as DREAM City. The Bourse is a not-for-profit organization that promotes the diamond industry. Spanning 14.38 hectares, it features nine towers, each 15 floors high, and accommodates 4,200 offices ranging from 300 to 7,500 square feet, attracting traders from around the world.
What sets this gem of a bourse apart are the state-of-the-art amenities provided to its occupants. With 131 high-speed elevators that can travel at three meters per second, convenience is at the heart of this establishment. The bourse boasts conference halls, multi-purpose halls, restaurants, banks, and retail shops, catering to every trader’s needs.
The Surat Diamond Bourse initially faced reservations from traders due to its outskirts location and connectivity challenges. However, DREAM City, spanning 1,690 acres, was strategically developed to enhance diamond trading facilities. It is conveniently located close to the Surat international exhibition and convention centre, and only 3 km from the airport.
Surat’s connectivity includes the Surat Metro Line 1 with the Dream City station, providing easy access to the city and the airport. The BRTS offers a high-speed bus service connecting the Bourse to other areas. A skywalk, expected in 2024, will enhance connectivity between the Bourse and Dream City Convention Centre.
Plakads Reality urges traders to embrace these opportunities, promising a bright future for Surat’s diamond industry. Innovative infrastructure and convenient connectivity set the stage for prosperity in India’s diamond district.
