Hebbal used to be the end of the corporation limits of Bangalore City. One can still see the milestone between the Baptist hospital and checkpost. Bangalore has now grown quite a bit towards north, beyond these marks. The commencement of the Bengaluru International Airport (BIAL) at Devanahalli in 2008 has ensured that Hebbal has become a very important location for the passengers flying out of Bangalore. All arterial roads and road networks leading to the BIAL intersect at Hebbal. Further, BIAL has its office on the National Highway (NH 7) exit of the Hebbal flyover in Gayathri Lake Front.
Hebbal hosts companies such as AstraZeneca, Integra Micro Software Services and MRO Tech. Embassy Kirslokar Business Park has changed this small semi-urban neighbourhood of Hebbal Kempapura into a sprawling modern office cum commercial hub. The Esteem Plaza and the Columbia Asia Medical Center managed by Dr. Nand Kumar is definitely one of the best high end secondary care hospitals in the north of Bangalore. With Godrej Properties developing the Woodsman Estate, residential development in the area has also been incubated. Along the Outer Ring Road (ORR) just after the Nagawara Lake (Lumbini Gardens), Embassy Manyata Business Park is one the largest technology and business parks in the city of Bangalore. Global brands like Philips Software and IBM have moved in. Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL) has also built its corporate office opposite the Embassy Manyata Business Park.
