The 247 Park building is well connected by road and rail - 1.5 km from Vikhroli and 0.5 km from Kanjurmarg suburban Railway Station and 2 km from the proposed Metro Rail station at Ghatkopar. It is also easily accessible from the domestic airport (12 kms) and international airport (15 km) as well.

The 65 meters tall complex also houses a helipad on its roof top. The exteriors of the building are developed using double glazed fenestration oriented methods with inert gas filling to eliminate sound pollution, minimize heat gain and maximize day-light from the windows to reduce power consumption by up to 25%.

It also uses top-of-the-line Membrane Bio Reactor (MBR) technology for sewage treatment. This technology reduces the frequent maintenance of the plant. The water is recycled, brought to almost potable grade and used for chillers and landscaping. Thus this is the first commercial complex with zero discharge–which means that this complex does not require any drainage system connection from MCGM line for sewage disposal. The treated solid waste is the only disposable material that will be collected by MCGM on regular basis. It also has a storm water management, rain water harvesting and an independent utility building providing the required backup support to the entire complex. Effective separation of dry and wet garbage has been done to facilitate recycling of dry garbage and on-site composting of wet garbage which would be used in the landscaping.

The complex is divided into three towers, with the central tower housing 14 floors of office space and the two adjoining towers housing twelve floors each of office space. The complex has intrusion-free separate access to the office areas with 25 lifts leading right up to the corporate section. In the retail section, there are two floors dedicated to high-end, home store shopping and three levels of covered car parking that accommodates over 1200 cars. The retail section is equipped with escalators, travelators, scenic lifts and separate goods lift for quick and easy movement of goods and customers. Special ramps have been provided to ease the entry and exit for the physically challenged visitors in the corporate office and retail sections.

Tailor-made to the needs of its discerning customers, the 247Park® has also been equipped with a gymnasium, business centre and conference facilities, separate drop– off points for office and retail vehicular and pedestrian traffic, banks and ATMs, high-end restaurants and a 24/7 food court with exclusive terraces. Contemporary surveillance and security measures include round the clock CCTV surveillance in key areas including the car park and common areas. The entire complex has been equipped with state-of-the-art fire detection, alarm and fire fighting systems. The security system is enhanced by a unique car-scanning facility installed at the main entrance which would raise the alarm in case of the presence of explosives and also collect the data such as driver's face, number plate in a flash without having to form large queues of vehicles.
