Ballygunge Circular Road is one of the most important roads which runs through the upscale part of Ballygunge in South Kolkata. It starts near the Ballygunge Science College right off Gariahat Road, passing through landmarks like Tripura House, St Lawrence High School etc. before meeting Gurusaday Dutta Road about a mile up the road. It then finally meets AJC Bose Road a bit further up. A large military camp (known as Ballygunge Maidan Camp) is located on the North-Western stretch of the road, starting right after the David Hare Training College and ending at the intersection of Chakraberia Road.
It is surrounded by nice residential houses in the vicinity of Tripura House, mainly in the stretch between the Science College and St. Lawrence High School. Some of the finest residential apartments as well as posh villas dot this road. Many prominent residential spots like "Vedant Apartments", on the plot that used to house legendary Bengali actress Suchitra Sen’s bungalow, have sprung up recently. "Devadwar" at 34 Ballygunge Circular Road is considered to be one of the best residential buildings in the city.
Other notable plush high rise apartments include "Paramount", "Uttarayan", "Le Palmerie", "The Residency", "Tripura Enclave", "Surya", "Balaka", "Tivoli Court" and the upcoming Sky villas "Shiromani" and "Sri Avani".
