This changed with the coming of the Bengaluru International Airport at Devanahalli in 2008 and Hebbal became an important transit point.

Currently, this area is emerging as an IT Hub and is expected to grow further. It houses Embassy’s Manyata Business Park situated next to Nagawara Lake along Outer Ring Road which is one of the largest Business Park in Bangalore. Another major attraction is the proposed development of nearly 10,000 acres of land at Devanahalli, in the vicinity of the international airport which is named Information Technology Investment Region (ITIR).

The Infrastructure of Hebbal has linked roads well connecting it to different parts of the city. Hebbal is seamlessly connected with both Outer Ring Road and Bellary Road. These roads lead towards Hyderabad via NH-7. Moreover, with proposal of high speed rail link, Hebbal is expected to yield massive capital returns, since it will improve connectivity with the Bangalore Airport.
