Aedas has seen off HOK and Gensler to win an invited design competition to masterplan a site in Kanjur Marg, Mumbai
The 1.1 million m² mixed-use scheme includes homes, offices, restaurants and shops.
The 27 hectare project in India aims to create a ‘walkable’ community positioned between Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport and the planned Navi Mumbai International Airport.
Urban spaces are linked to a ‘green spine’ as part of the masterplans ‘garland-inspired’ form.
Aedas associate director Saurabh Bhandari said: ‘We believe this development will set precedence for the area as it will offer added value within the active public space and will provide the area’s first block of iconic high rise towers.
‘The quality of the un-built space is as important to the end-user as the built accommodation and this philosophy will be a strong USP for our clients. The scale of this development along with the opportunity to develop iconic addresses for the residents has been of huge importance to our clients and a winning design.’
