Century Real Estate, with its headquarters in Bangalore, India was founded by Dr.P.Dayananda Pai and Mr.P.Satish Pai in the year 1973 with the primary objective of transacting in the simple buying and selling of land. More than 35 years later, the Company has evolved into an integrated, full service real estate development company that has transformed Bangalore’s urban landscape and is credited with several of Bangalore’s landmark developments such as Manipal Centre, Taj Residency, Vijaya Bank Head Quarters and Diamond District to mention only a few. Century Real Estate has the unique distinction of having purchased land on M.G.Road at INR 5 per square feet way back in 1973 where today the quoted prices are in the range of INR 20,000 per square feet.
Regarded as one of the oldest and most respected companies in the Real Estate space in India, the growth of Century Real Estate has practically mirrored the growth of Bangalore as one of Asia’s fastest growing cities. Today, we are the largest owners of real estate in Bangalore with a land bank in excess of 3000 acres representing more than USD 2 billion in asset value and a development portfolio of over 10 million square feet comprising hotels, office buildings, residences, educational institutions and integrated townships spread across South India.

By channeling its unique legacy and expertise into a sustainable vision that engages every level of its human capital, be it management, staff, customers or partners, Century’s mission of “Thinking Ahead” reverberates along the entire value chain. .
Century is concerned not just with the creation of wealth, but also with its redistribution in an equitable and socially aware manner. Its responsibility is not just to its immediate stakeholders, but also to the community in which it functions. In its quest to serve customers’ needs, it make sure not to neglect those of the disadvantaged and the less privileged, who also form a crucial part of the social fabric in which it operates.
