The city has gone beyond its status of having an international airport, as Cidco has planned a better version of Bandra-Kurla Complex (BKC) in Kharghar with a layered structure with a pyramid-shaped central hub of high rises.
The proposal will be tabled before the board next week on Wednesday, after which it will be forwarded for the state government’s approval, said managing director, Sanjay Bhatia.
The new structure (name yet to be assigned but informally described as BKC-II) will encompass an area of 200 hectares factoring in the central park and golf course. The actual corporate hub will be on 125 hectares of land.
Cidco has decided to have a layered structure with the outer fringe to be developed with 1-2 FSI while the core area will have 3 FSI. Around 50 % of the area (120 hectares) has been set aside for the high rises with 3 FSI for the pyramid-shaped structure. Plots will be auctioned for corporates with the richer entities vying for the hub of the corporate park.
Shops and commercial properties will also be developed so that there is night life unlike BKC.
Proximity to the international airport and the metro project worth Rs 13,000 crore, will provide high class infra, Bhatia said. The entire Kharghar node along with nearby industrial Taloja will get connected to the new airport lending an opportunity for businesses to hop between work stations and the airport.
