Kolkata West Internacional City. Kolkata, India
This 370 acre site is located in an affluent area at the heart of the metropolitan area of Kolkata, on the bustling NH-6 with road networks linking it to the Belghoria Expressway. There was a previous master plan done by a local team and the scope of the project was to revise the plan of the plots that were still vacant. A great communication network, the proximity of the Hugli River and the potential offered by the location from a planning point of view has made it a focal point for local and metropolitan activity. Expansive open spaces and excellent landscaping surround the newly designed areas.
The requirements for integrated township are in alignment with an increase in demand in India for better quality lifestyle and a good urban experience. It also goes hand in hand with a great need of cost effective large-scale developments near Tier I and Tier II cities of the country. This sustainable community integrates residential, commercial, soft infrastructure, retail and landscaping areas with a total development of 30 million sq. ft. The relationship with the natural environment has been the structuring factor of this project currently under construction.
