Over the years, urban infrastructure has been the driving force and backbone of growth and development in India. As we develop further, workspace requirements continue to evolve and challenge the capacity to offer world-class corporate spaces. GAR Corporation is one of the pioneers in this space that has been developing iconic office spaces for the past three decades. Some of the top MNCs such as Amazon, PepsiCo, HSBC, ADP, Cognizant, HCL, Capgemini, and many others have chosen GAR properties as their address.
Having been born and brought up in Hyderabad, Abhinav is deeply attached to the city. He completed his schooling at the famous Hyderabad Public School, and admits that although he was average in academia, he was an all-rounder and participated proactively in school programs. He was also chosen as the Head Boy of the School in 2006-07 for his competitive spirit and leadership skills. He continued his education with a Bachelor of Science in Finance and Marketing from Case Western Reserve University and is also an alumni of Harvard Business School.
“I have travelled to a lot of cities around the world but there’s no place like Hyderabad.”
Speaking of Hyderabad, Abhinav said, “I’ve traveled to a lot of cities around the world, but there’s no place like Hyderabad, simply because the city accepts all kinds of people, and the fact that anyone from anywhere can live here without barriers like language and resources makes it even more amazing.” He also talked about Hyderabad’s phenomenal growth over the last few years especially after the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh, and stated the fact that GAR Corp has added millions of square feet of commercial real estate space, resulting in the creation of tens of thousands of jobs.
Today, world-class facilities and support services are a necessity for the city rather than a wish, as Hyderabad is now one of the most preferred destinations in India for any MNC looking to set up their presence.
Soon after completing his education, Abhinav was determined to carry forward his father’s real-estate empire. Currently, he oversees a portfolio of 10 million square feet of office space that is wholly owned by the family business. He is also an investor, part of several SEBI registered venture capital funds, and has personally invested in around 25 startups with a focus on non-tech-specific, manufacturing and FMCG.

He says “I would prefer to invest my time and effort in the brick & mortar sectors rather than in technology, as technology trends keep changing from time to time and the market value is too dynamic.”
The latest office park of GAR Corp, Laxmi Infobahn, shows us a glimpse of the futuristic Hyderabad. Today, under the leadership of Abhinav, the GAR Corp is the largest single owner of office space in Hyderabad, that is creating & operating iconic office spaces that meet world-class standards. He has also been instrumental in diversifying the company’s tenant roster to include clients from varying industries such as technology, BFSI, E-commerce, Insurance, GICs, etc. Abhinav aims to expand and consolidate the firm and ensure that G
Abhinav believes that staying focused on the target plays a crucial role in the overall picture. His objectives and motivation behind any task are clearly set in advance, and he strives to make the most of his time. He says that his dynamic schedule doesn’t allow him to have a strict morning routine, and he says, “Rituals can keep changing based on the need, but one’s goal must remain constant.” He emphasizes mental health and says, “Mental fitness is just as important as physical fitness, and should not be neglected.” While exercise can improve one’s physical health, Abhinav’s main goal is to remain mentally focused as that is what drives and motivates him.
Having a comfortable lifestyle and a world-class work environment is today a necessity more than a desire. As we thrive to succeed, premium workspaces and iconic office parks play a key role in our nation building process. Ever since Hyderabad has become the IT-Hub, there has always been a constant increase in demand for professional, flexible, and community-driven working spaces and GAR Corp has lived up to the expectations.
Abhinav shared his mission to expand GAR Corp to remain the leader in the CRE industry of Hyderabad. He says the next 5 years are crucial and he’s focused on achieving the objectives and goals and taking GAR Corp to the next level.
