Broadway Malyan plays major role on new city launched in India

A new city spanning 125 acres in North Bangalore, India, has been launched by real estate and infrastructure development company Bhartiya Urban, part of the Bhartiya Group, with major input from global architecture, urbanism and design practice Broadway Malyan.

Bhartiya City is the single largest urban development within the limits of any Indian metropolitan area and will provide a fully-integrated mix of residential, retail, hospitality and Special Economic Zone uses, as well school, healthcare and sports facilities, making it the first of its kind in India.

The city is designed to be highly sustainable, with residents set to live in close proximity to workplaces and so-called ‘third spaces’, with the entire city being accessible by foot or bicycle and featuring links to major transport networks by road as well as a potential future rail connection.

The practice has been working with client Bhartiya Urban since its Chairman set out his initial vision for an improved quality of life for residents in India, with the practice subsequently appointed to support the client’s plan to deliver an open, accessible and inspirational city development.

Its wide ranging brief in support of precincts two and three covers the delivery of the architectural concept and schematic design, retail interior design, landscape design and public realm strategy. The two precincts comprise of 460,000 square metres of mixed-use development over basement parking and feature six office towers, three hotels, a convention centre, shopping centre, cinema, park and major landscaped areas, as well as Celebration Square, a public performance area that will accommodate 5,000 people.

The practice’s appointment also covers the concept residential design for precinct one, comprising 2,400 residential units, as well as place-making, branding, marketing collateral, graphics and way-finding for the entire city.

The design, which is led by Chairman Stuart Rough, Director Ian Simpson and Associate Director Jochum Ledgister and is being delivered by the practice’s expert design teams in Singapore, Lisbon and Mumbai, is already under construction.

Stuart Rough said: “This project launch is a major chapter for our practice in India, where we opened a permanent office in 2011, and it is testament to our integrated and world-class team of diverse design experts working in close partnership with our visionary client, across a wide range of sector disciplines, to create an inspirational place that will improve the quality of life for many.”

Since the practice opened its Mumbai office in 2011 its teams have been delivering projects across the country including masterplanning, mixed use and hospitality schemes in Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi and Hyderabad, as well as masterplans for the creation of new communities built around cricket grounds in tier one and two cities.

Investment in construction in India is at record levels, with great demand for residential, commercial and industrial space in India’s growing cities. Improving the country’s infrastructure is the Indian government’s top priority. In its eleventh five-year plan (2007-12) it invested US $500 billon and India’s Planning Commission has set out detailed plans to spend a further US $1 trillion up to 2017. India is also second only to China in the number of Private Public Partnership (PPP) projects.
