Broadway Malyan has hailed a major milestone for its Indian studio with the official launch of a 50-hectare city in North Bangalore
Development company Bhartiya Urban this week began marketing Bhartiya City to potential tenants.
Broadway Malyan delivered concept residential design for precinct one of the scheme.
The London-headquartered practice has also been appointed for precincts two and three, where it will deliver architectural concept and schematic design, retail interior design, landscape design and public realm strategy.
Bhartiya City will provide residential, retail and hospitality space as well as a special economic zone, schools, healthcare and sports facilities.
Broadway Malyan chairman Stuart Rough said: ‘This project launch is a major chapter for our practice in India, where we opened a permanent office in 2011.
‘The launch is also a major milestone in the delivery of the city, with the scheme now being actively marketed to potential private and commercial residents and tenants.’
Bhartiya Group is planning to invest in the region of 2,000 crore Rupees (£230 million) on the project, which should be completed within a decade.
The city is designed to be highly sustainable, with residents set to live in close proximity to workplaces and all facilities to be accessible by foot or bicycle.
Precincts two and three comprise 460,000 sq m of mixed-use development over basement parking. They include six office towers, three hotels, a convention centre, shopping centre, cinema, park and major landscaped areas.
Celebration Square, a public performance area, will accommodate 5,000 people.
Investment in construction in India is at record levels. The country’s Planning Commission has set out detailed plans to spend US $1 trillion (£620 billion) over the next five years.
