 Max Estates, the real estate subsidiary of USD 3 billion business conglomerate Max Group, has started construction of its new commercial project, comprising around 0.7 million sq ft of office and retail spaces, on the Noida Expressway. This is the third commercial project of Max Estates, which is part of Max group's listed entity Max Ventures & Industries (MaxVIL).

Max Estates will develop the project 'Max Square' with New York Life Insurance Company as the financial partner. It will have 51% and the New York Life Insurance Company will have 49% stakes in the special purpose vehicle (SPV) Max Square, formed to develop the 'Max Square' project.

It has been designed in line with our differentiated philosophy of WorkWell which enables higher productivity, a vibrant workplace community combined with wellness and recreation measures. It incorporates elements for the new normal including state-of-art air-filtration and contactless utilities," he added.
