In 2010, a Bangladeshi daily published a story under the headline 'BGME building is illegal'. The report came to the notice of the court and the BGMEA building was constructed by illegally occupying the canal land. On April 3, 2011, a bench of justices headed by Justice AHM Shamsuddin Chowdhury of the Bangladesh High Court ordered the demolition of the building at the organisation's own expense.The court ruled, " The BGMEA building in the Drishtinandan Hatirjheel project is like cancer and if the building is not removed immediately, it will harm the whole city of Dhaka, not Hatirjheel." When BGME filed an appeal in the Supreme Court of Bangladesh on November 8, 2018 , the then Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha four-member bench of the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court of Bangladesh, headed by the High Court, upheld the judgment of the High Court and fixed 90 days for reversal. On April 2, 2018, BGMEA was again granted a bond by the court for one year.The deadline expired on 12 April 2019 and the RAJUK building was sealed on 16 April 2019 .
As the old building was sealed, the new BGMEA headquarters was shifted to two taller buildings in Uttara, Dhaka. The interior of these two buildings is 4 lakh 64 thousand square feet. Of this, BGMEA will use 3 lakh square feet for office work. In addition to the exhibition center, it has an auditorium with a capacity of 650, two seminar rooms and a swimming pool for the members of the organization.
