Martin Burn Group
Martin Burn Group is a leading Real Estate Development firm based in Kolkata. It was founded in 1946 as a result of a merger of two civil engineering companies i.e. Martin & Co. and Burn & Co.
They are proud to have created some of the most iconic landmarks such as the Victoria Memorial, Shahid Minar, Esplanade Mansion, etc. Over the past three decades, we have delivered new standards for workplaces, homes, and cultural spaces that people love to come to and use every day.
Our dedication to excellence has enabled us to create the most recognizable public and private spaces in Kolkata. The group advanced the concept of premium gated community living with developments. Such as Shreeram Gardens (Belvedere Road), Shreeram Nagar (VIP Road), and Shreeram Estates (Behala). We gave the city its first truly world-class shopping complex in Shreeram Arcade. We engaged with civic authorities and local governments to develop public spaces like Eden Gardens Club House, and S.S. Hogg Market – Phase II.
We do this by staying true to our ethos of creating a lasting impact by transforming communities. They are focused on developing public spaces centered on inclusive design and detailed craftsmanship. The group is cognizant of the importance these structures hold in the community. And hence they take immense care to ensure that they evolve from and become one with it.
