Shreepati Arcade (Marathi:श्रीपती आरकॅड )is one of India's tallest buildings and was completed in 2002. It is located at Nana Chowk, Mumbai, just off Grant Road bridge in the heart of the city of Mumbai.

The building is 153 meters (500 ft) tall[1] and contains 45 floors. There are six Swiss Schindler's lifts, high speed elevators of up to 4 metres per second, which take only 35 seconds to go from Ground to 45th Flr. The Fire fighting safety systems within the building are totally automated. It has a sprinkler system, the main and kitchen doors are two hour fire rated and current flows through insulated wires in a 'bus bar' system. The structure is earthquake resistant.

The club house of the Shreepati Arcade is equipped with a swimming pool, gymnasium, steam, sauna & jacuzzi. This building has a residence restriction that all residents must be vegetarian. This kind of practice is not considered unusual in India.[2][3]
