Design: Lee Harris Pomeroy Architects


Inspired by a printed circuit board and Mandala symbolism, Skill City, a new satellite city is planned outside Bangalore, India. Lee Harris Pomeroy’s Master Plan and design for this 49 million sq. ft. Special Economic Zone (SEZ) encompasses a new technology campus, a 70-story office tower, golf course, residential community and a 5 million SF grass-roofed mall for shopping, exhi¬bition and entertainment. The office tower takes the form of intertwined ficus and banyan trees that are symbols of good luck in Hindu culture. The campus includes its own electricity generating plant and will provide all necessary power locally.

With a population of over six million, Bangalore is the 3rd most populous city in India and the 27th largest city in the world by population. It is the center of India’s booming information technology industry, accounting for 35 percent of the country’s software exports. Sanjay Khan, the developer of Skill City, is a native of Bangalore. He is well known as an actor, director and producer of Bollywood films, as well as television series. Mr. Khan invited Lee Harris Pomeroy to design a new city on a 700-acre site between Bangalore and Chikkaballapura on National Highway #7. A major component of the complex is an entertainment and commercial complex. It features an outdoor amphitheater on the edge of an artificial lake. An oversized movie screen is mounted on an island in the lake. There are also five indoor theaters and a retail shopping mall.

The profile of the technology buildings resembles that of a printed circuit board. They are located at the entrance to the city nearest to the highway and are clustered around the twisting high-rise office tower. The golf course separates the commercial/office/entertainment facilities from the residential buildings at the eastern end of the city. They include single family as well as high rise apartment towers and are located in proximity to schools, parkland, a community center and a medical center.
