Brigade Group was established in 1986, with property development as its main focus.
Today, Brigade is one of South India's leading property developers. We are headquartered in Bangalore, with branch offices in several cities in South India and in Dubai. We have a uniquely diverse multi-domain portfolio that covers property development, property management services, hospitality and education. Our projects extend across several major cities in South India: Chennai, Chikmagalur, Hyderabad, Kochi, Mangalore and Mysore.
A reputation for innovation, quality and trust
We are known to be a professionally managed organisation with a stable and confident business model. We have shown an impressive compounded annual growth rate—even during difficult market and business cycles (like the depression of 1996, the post-9/11 shadow period and the present recession). And in the process of successfully negotiating changing conditions, Brigade has created a brand name that stands for trust, reliability and innovation, across all our domains.
