NEW YORK -- The U.S. government broke ground on a new embassy building in India on Friday, one intended to accommodate America's growing mission to the country. It anticipates completion in the fall of 2027.

Designed by Weiss/Manfredi of New York, the new embassy building will be on the existing 28-acre site in New Delhi's diplomatic enclave in the Chanakyapuri neighborhood, next to the current chancery building, the State Department said in an announcement.
