The Pune Magarpatta City Centre is in an ultra modern office building in Magarpatta City, which is situated on the eastern side of Pune. Located in the Pentagon Towers building, the centre is on the sixth floor with views of the environs from several of the offices and meeting rooms. Magarpatta City is a self-contained residential and commercial settlement spread over several hundred acres. The settlement, which has received awards for its eco friendly design and construction, grew out a movement where farmers who owned the land got together to convert it into an enterprise, rather than have the government take it over. It is now a very sought-after area and is home to many IT parks and industrial estates. Several large Indian and multinational companies have offices close to the centre. The location is excellent as it is just 5km from Pune's central business district.
