In India, Broadway Malyan is currently working on three SMART City district scale projects including a major residential development in the NCR region for telecoms company Bharti. A 50-acre mixed-use scheme in Bangalore called Emprasa SMART City was recently launched with the aspiration to create a start-up tech focussed community including flexible workplaces, lifestyle uses and accommodation for the working population.
The third key project is Bhartiya City, a 126-acre development near Hebbal in Bangalore. Spanning 50 hectares, it 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 development of its kind in India. The City is designed to be highly sustainable, with residents living in close proximity to workplaces. The entire city will be accessible by foot or bicycle and feature links to major road networks as well as a potential future rail connection. Broadway Malyan designed Phases 1, 2 and 3 are currently under construction.
Broadway Malyan was appointed to support the client chairman’s - Mr Snehdeep Aggarwal - vision for an improved quality of life for residents in India with the delivery of an open, accessible and inspirational city development. The overall aspiration was the creation of a people focused community that brings joy and happiness to all through its innovative design.
Ankit added: “Whether it is introducing cycle ways to security systems linked to mobile phones, the design of these new communities with their focus on sustainability and liveability means these are the grass roots projects that are happening now and that we believe are providing a blueprint for the Smart Cities of the future as much as the larger scale city planning.”
