"New" tree by the bank - Breadfruit

I stopped at the neighbourhood bank the other day and noticed this tree that I have not see before. The leaves were quite spectacular.
As it happens usually, ever since the first sighting,  i have been noticing this species all around the city and am intrigued to know what it is.

Thanks to a fellow blogger, this has been identified as the Breadfruit (artocarpus altilis)
