Cuffe Parade is a historic and significant business district of the city of Mumbai, India. It is home to a collection of commercial and office high-rises. It is bordered to the north by Nariman Point which, along with Cuffe Parade, forms the greater CBD region of the city.
Cuffe Parade was named after T. W. Cuffe of the Bombay City Improvement Trust, which reclaimed around 75,000 m² on the western shore of Colaba. Much of Cuffe Parade was developed on reclaimed land in the 1960s, with many of the buildings over thirty storeys high.
Prior to the mid 2000s, some of the tallest buildings in South Asia were located in Cuffe Parade. Unlike Nariman Point to the North, Cuffe Parade's lack of proximity to major historical sites has allowed construction of towers above 150 metres of height. However, in recent years, residential towers in Parel, along with commercial towers in Mumbai Central have overtaken Cuffe Parade's skyline.
Cuffe Parade has been making a resurgence in recent years, with a slew of residential and commercial towers going up along the bay facing Nariman Point. There are also plans to greenfly the edge of the bay, allowing a seamless park/plaza between Cuffe Parade and Marine Drive.
To the east is Colaba Causeway and to the west is the Arabian Sea. Among the notable residents are members of the Ambani and Husain families.
