BDP WINS MAJOR MIXED USE DEVELOPMENT IN INDIA

BDP has won its first architectural commission in India, following the decision to establish a studio there in early 2010.

Mumbai Mixed-Use Development

The scheme is a 154,000sqm retail-led mixed-use development in Mumbai, for leading Indian developer Khubchandani. It covers a major city block in Mumbai adjacent to an affluent residential area and home to the Indian film industry. The area is populated with many celebrities and Bollywood film stars who will be amongst the spectrum of visitors to the development.

The brief is to develop three parcels of land each with a different use allocation. BDP’s vision is for an urban oasis, which will be a highly sustainable mixed-use development with carefully integrated elements. Taking inspiration from the natural geology of the area, strong building forms will be created. Water and greenery will feature predominantly to create visual delight and a diversity of habitat. The aim will be to achieve a LEED (BREEAM international equivalent) platinum rating.

New civic spaces and lively piazzas will greet visitors. Central to the scheme will be a major luxury high end mall with top name boutiques and gourmet restaurants, and a feature viewing platform. A second main mall will comprise high street shopping and department stores. The two will connect via a tree lined boulevard, which acts as the main pedestrian route lined with cafes and food outlets. Office space will be provided to the east of the development over the main mall, with the northern block housing a hotel, banqueting, residential and leisure uses.

BDP director Adrian Price says: This is an exciting opportunity for BDP to create a stunning landmark development for India’s largest city. Working with the wider city we will create a green oasis in Mumbai and establish a wonderful place to be for both the local population and visitors. Our sustainable and integrated approach will ensure the creation of a successful and memorable destination.

The scheme is could be completed as early as 2013.
