The Dhaka Stock Exchange has decided to shift its office to the DSE Tower at Nikunja in the Dhaka city by March this year.
The construction work of the 13-storey building started on March 28, 2007 and was expected to be completed in three years, according to the DSE web site.
On February 1, the bourse issued a letter, asking its officials for making preparations for shifting to its new building by March 15, said DSE officials.
The members, however, will move later after furnishing rooms allocated to them. The IT department also will not be shifted to the new building by the time as the DSE is yet to decide floor arrangement for the department’s equipment and machinery, the officials said.
DSE Tower project director Altamas Karim said the
DSE can now move its office to the building any time it wants as the rooms selected for the office use are well-furnished.
The members can also begin interior work in their allocated rooms, he said.
The DSE Tower has been set up on 1.33 acres of land while the projected building area is 7,56,000 square feet.
There are three basements that will be used for car parking. The first two floors are fixed for banks and other financial institutions. The third floor will be exclusively for the use of DSE office.
The fourth to eleventh floors have been allocated to the members for trading purpose and part of the twelfth floor is for the auditorium.
On the thirteenth floor, there will be a Members’ Club.
