The projectEdit

UB City has four towers namely, UB Tower (19 Floors), Comet (11 Floors), Canberra (17 Floors) and Concorde (19 Floors). The later three towers are all named after aircraft. UB City will house the Group offices under one roof - UB Tower. Concorde & Canberra will have retail space on the lower floors and office space in the higher levels, while Comet will have serviced apartments. It will house commercial offices, banks, high-end retail stores, a five star hotel, serviced apartments, restaurants, food courts, pubs, health clubs and cafes. Multi-level parking areas will offer virtually unlimited parking spaces. Also on the blueprint is an amphitheatre with food courts and landscaped gardens. UB City will provide parking space for over 1,100 cars. Being an environment friendly project and keeping in mind the green surroundings of Cubbon Park, one-third of the space has been earmarked for landscaped gardens.[3]

An elevated roof top helipad will provide a five-minute aerial commute to the airport. Four storeys of multi level parking, in addition to one common basement for the entire UB City and extensive surface level car parks, will provide UB City the remarkable prospect of offering virtually unlimited car parking space.

UB City hosted the curtain raiser of the recently held Bangalore Restaurant Week - a week long event between November 12 to 20. As part of the curtain raiser, *King of Chefs* was held, in which some of the best chefs in Bangalore vied for the title 'King of Chefs'.

Trousseau Week is an annual wedding festival held in UB City.
