Kanjur Marg is a suburb in east central Mumbai. Kanjurmarg railway station is the main access point for IIT Bombay, KV Powai, NITIE, Hiranandani Gardens, and other locations in Powai. The station was built in 1968 and named after the local Kanjur village.

Kanjur Marg is fast developing into a business district through some thoughtfully planned corporate campuses like OneWorld and Lodha iThink. But much prior to that the suburb was home to large industrial establishments like Crompton Greaves and The Indian Smelting And Refining Company Limited. The under construction 335-room Radisson hotel at the corner of Jogeshwari - Vikhroli Link Road and Lal Bahadur Shastri Marg aims to add to the hospitality market within the area.

Much of the development may be attributed to the suburb's strategic location and its proximity to Powai, the IIT and easy access to the IT hubs of Seepz, Vikhroli IT parks and the IT campuses of Airoli and Mahape. Kanjur Marg is also the starting point for the Jogeshwari Vikhroli Link Road popularly known as JVLR which connects the Eastern and Western Express Highways. Covering a distance of 10.8 km, it skirts the Powai Lake snaking its way through Andheri East and SEEPZ to reach Western Express highway. On the eastern end, it joins the Eastern Express Highway via a flyover over the Central Railway line. It is one of the major arterial routes that has opened up connectivity between western and eastern Mumbai increasing accessibility to areas like Powai which are not served by trains.

A unique feature of this complex is the naturally available garden of trees and greenery which not only provides the much needed calm and serenity but has virtually made it into a haven for birds.
