Highrise near old airport gets HAL nod

An alleged wrong estimation of the Above Mean Sea Level (AMSL) by a private builder to construct a 17-storey building, 4.5 km from the Hindustan Aeronautics Limited’s (HAL) defence aerodrome, has been approved by HAL that handles the airport.

It is learnt that HAL has accepted the estimation and issued a No-Objection Certificate (NOC) to the builder.

Chalet Hotels Ltd, an arm of the K Raheja Corporation, which is building the ‘Vivarea Koramangala’ residential complex of four towers in the vicinity, secured a final NOC from HAL on October 28, 2011, to proceed with the construction activity.

In the final NOC, HAL certified that it had no objection to the buildings being constructed at 870 metres (site elevation) along with the 62 metre-tall structure. The total height of the building would be 932 metres (AMSL).

“This NOC is being issued on the express understanding that the site-elevation reduced level (height above mean sea level) vis. 870 metres AMSL relative location of the proposed building/structure and its distance and bearings from the ARP, runway ends as tendered by the applicant(s) are correct,” states the NOC by HAL.

Beyond permissible limit

However, as per the documents in possession of Deccan Herald, the map produced by the Survey of India, the location of survey No. 21,22, 42, 52 and 18 at Jakkasandra village in Koramangala is already upwards of 890 metres (AMSL). This will push the height of the building beyond the prescribed limit for construction of buildings around the aerodromes in the country.

According to civil aviation norms, the height of a building close to any airport or aerodrome should be four per cent of the distance from the edge of the nearest runway.
Further, no buildings are allowed within 300 metres of any runway. In 2011, the Civil Aviation department enabled builders to increase the building height to 57 metres, or up to 14 floors.

In a gazetted document issued by the Ministry of Civil Aviation, HAL aerodrome has been shown to be at 888 metres above sea level. This makes its position 54 metres below the height of the Vivarea Koramangala buildings.

The Bangalore International Airport Area Planning Authority (BIAAPA) bye-laws suggest that the maximum height of a building within the vicinity of Bengaluru International Airport should be only seven storeys or a maximum of 25 metres, whichever is lower. With the HAL aerodrome previously being the only airport for both civil and military use, the situation can be considered almost similar to that of BIAPPA.

Responding to the allegation of having given an NOC for a wrongful estimation of the AMSL, an HAL spokesperson said: “We have given the NOC based on the elevation being surveyed by Precision Survey and checked and verified by the Ambedkar Institute. The site is marked and signed by BBMP on our zoning map also.”

Efforts to contact the local office of the K Raheja Group, which is the parent organisation for constructing the Koramangala Viverea, were futile. An RTI activist following the case said: “The Chalet Hotels have shown 20 metres lower AMSL by which they have approval for 17 floors; whereas they cannot get approval for more than 12 floors.”

Govt reaches out to HAL for high-rises in CBD
Builders Raise Pitch For New Aeronautical Study To Ascertain Safe-Height Norms
Anshul Dhamija TNN

Quote:
Bangalore: In a bid to make Namma Bengaluru mirror the high-rise culture of a Shanghai or Singapore, the state government is seeking the cooperation of Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), the operators of the city’s old HAL airport, to allow builders to go vertical.
Situated in the heart of Bangalore, HAL airport issues no-objection certificates (NOCs) on height limits to developments situated approximately in a 5-kilometre radius around the airport. Until 2010, the Airports Authority of India was issuing the same NOC to builders.
A couple of months ago, the state chief secretary S V Ranganath sent a letter to the chairman of HAL, R K Tyagi, seeking the defence establishment’s help to increase the radar height at HAL airport, which would in turn facilitate taller buildings to come up in the central business district areas of the city.
In the letter, a copy of which is with TOI, Ranganath, said, “There has been considerable demand for permitting construction of high-rise and multi-storied buildings in the vicinity of HAL Airport…. If the height of the existing radar is increased by about 1.5 meters, the signal clearance of the radar will improve considerably while facilitating construction of multi-storied buildings using the permissible FSI to the optimum.”
As per estimates by real estate industry body Credai, if the radar height is increased by 1.5 meters, developments in the CBD could enjoy an additional height of upto 75 meters or 25 floors. Typically, one floor equals three meters.
Ranganath said that since Bangalore city had grown tremendously in the past decade, it necessitated upgradation and improvement of infrastructure by various government agencies. Urban development agencies in the city have increased the FSI limit for construction of high-rise buildings in Bangalore.
Senior government officials told TOI that HAL had responded saying they would examine the recommendations, but hadn’t yet got back with any proposals.
However, in response to TOI’s e-mail query, HAL said, “The letter from the Karnataka chief secretary was examined and HAL’s opinion on increasing the height of the radar has already been communicated as not feasible or beneficial.”
Nagaraj Reddy, president of Credai, said the objective of going high-rise was to offer more green space and open areas. “Mumbai and Delhi airports are allowing high-rise developments to come up. We hope that HAL can come up with a solution which would not affect their landing and take-off restrictions,” he said.
High-rise apartments give 80% to 85% more open /green space than regular mid to lowrise apartments. For example, on a 10-acre plot if a developer plans for a vertical high-rise (above 30 floors) then the developer would only be using up roughly 2-acres leaving eight acres of land as open space.
Current regulations too conservative
Many feel that the current safe-height regulations are way too conservative, given the advances in aviation. Developers like Sobha and Mantri have approached the AAI to conduct an aeronautical study of certain CBD areas to ascertain safe-height regulations. Even Britannia Industries, which is looking to redevelop its marquee land parcel on Old Airport Road, is said to have reached out to AAI. However, AAI is believed to be turning down such requests citing jurisdictional conflicts.
Mumbai’s Bandra Kurla Complex, perhaps the most prime commercial real estate location in India, has benefited from such an aeronautical study. “Look at Hong Kong. You have so many high-rises in and around the old airport,” said J C Sharma, MD, Sobha Developers. A Mumbai-based developer has taken HAL to court in a bid to get the defence establishment to conduct an aeronautical study.


NEW HEIGHTS: Mumbai’s Bandra Kurla Complex has benefited from aeronautical study

Seems this is big problem for bangalore cbd I think this below construction was restricted in height due to this hal airport:

It is high time HAL airport is closed down. The land can be put to much better use. You can build roads through it, you can build metro, you can have commercial spaces, and HAL can earn a lot of money by selling the land to private parties for commercial exploitation.

At the moment, HAL airport is a bottleneck and a problem.

HAL airport cannot be closed down - it is being used for tests by HAL, NAL, etc.

The city has expanded to the point that HAL airport is practically city center now. HAL and NAL need to do tests in the center of the city? If they sell this airport land, they will earn such a windfall profit that they can have a brand new state-of-the-art testing center on the outskirts of the city, near Hoskote or Nelamangala or anywhere else, with a lot of money to spare.

HAL must monetize its land and shift to city outskirts(tier 2 towns in bangalores surrondings)..idiotic to have so much land in the middle of the city..

Same applies to HMT etc...Bangalore is filled with these non-performing PSU's

Tracking Bangalore City's vertical push

For decades, the Public Utility Building on MG Road stood towering over Bangalore, a 24-storeyed edifice that proudly wore its architectural crown as the City’s tallest. But that was before the urban planners realised the folly of allowing unbridled horizontal expansion of the City, a generosity that triggered a litany of haphazardly spread out layouts.

Today, thanks to a late vertical push, the 348-ft tall PUB virtually stands dwarfed by a new skyline, dominated by skyscrapers 30, 35 and even 45 floors high!

The reign of the 32-storeyed World Trade Centre Bangalore as the city’s current tallest, could be short-lived. For, the Mantri Pinnacle on Bannerghatta Road is briskly nearing completion, all set to grab that coveted title. Dominating as it is with its 46 floors and unprecedented 502-ft height, the skyscraper could be the game-changer in the City’s upward mobility. Equally overwhelming would be the four 40-floor towers of Pashmina Waterfront and four more of the same height being built under the Equinox Water’s Edge branding.

Many more residential highrises are in the pipeline, and the City’s skyline in five years could look totally unrecognisable from today’s. This imposing prospect had led the Karnataka Information and Communication Technology Group (KIG) to recommend the State to permit more high rises and collect a toll that could be funnelled to boost the City’s infrastructure. The toll implies the builders would be charged a premium to erect structures with a higher Floor Space Index or Floor Area Ratio (FAR). This strategy figured in a report (KIG-2020) submitted recently to Chief Minister Siddaramaiah by KIG, a group set up by the government with TM Mohandas Pai as chairman.

The recommendation predictably triggered a debate. One side argued against this proposed densification of the City’s core that could spark myriad utilities-linked problems, while the other side felt it could break the stranglehold of high property prices. Low FSI, they reasoned, had spiked the property prices and led to the City’s unchecked horizontal spread.

But many architects are convinced that the City cannot go for the super-talls, the likes of which are now mushrooming in Mumbai. Reason: Bangalore’s multiplicity of airports, big and small, with vast flight approach areas where high rises are not allowed. The HAL Airport is within the City. So is the Jakkur airfield and not far away is the busy Yelahanka Air Force Station. “The maximum the City’s core can accommodate is a building complex as tall as UB City (The tallest tower is 420-ft high). Tall buildings are possible only in the Far East towards Hoskote and Deep South on Bannerghatta Road,” informed a highrise architect.

However, despite the high construction and operational costs, there are many buyers keen to invest in highrise flats. The promise of more openness, enhanced green cover and superior ventilation drives this demand, analysed R Nagaraj, the Bangalore president of Confederation of Real Estate Developers’ Associations of India (CREDAI). The City’s vertical push to record heights will depend on this niche, yet perceptible demand.

Bangalore hearts skyscrapers, ignoring risks of fire-traps

It may be expensive, but young families in Bangalore are determined to live it up. Skyscrapers are shooting up across the city, and a recent survey shows that families who can afford it want the very top floor.

After Mumbai, the city has the maximum skyscrapers in the country - at least 900 of them and many others under construction. To qualify as a skyscraper, a building has to be at least 20 metres or 7-8 floors high.

Apartments on the 45th floor are selling for about three crores, and there's no shortage of takers. But don't race up there just yet.

750 of the high-rises in Bangalore that are currently occupied do not have a No-Objection certificate from the fire safety department, which means there's no guarantee that they have basic safety measures like a sprinkler system or smoke detectors. Usually, a two-month notice is served to these buildings for failing safety checks; as penalty, their electricity supply can be disconnected.

But that's hardly comforting given this: in the entire city, the tallest ladder available for the fire department is 54 metres high. That falls desperately short of a 30-storey building.

In 2010, nine people died in a fire at Carlton Towers, a commercial building seven storeys high. The ladders that firemen arrived at helped reach to some high point and came in handy to rescue several people trapped inside.

Government sources say that an order has been placed to import ladders that run at least 90 metres high from Finland.

"In the event of a fire breaking out, the higher firemen go, the more the air velocity. So we will need sturdy stable ladders. The highest ladder now in the world is in Dubai at 101 metres. We are studying the performance of these ladders before ordering for more because they are very expensive." says Mr Om Prakash, who heads the fire safety department in Karnataka

Also missing: helipads. It is not for luxury, not for people to reach there; it is (needed) for rescue operations." Mr Om Prakash adds. He said high-rises are also being asked to add external elevators - which cost about 10 crores each, a proposal that is being predictably fought by builders in the city.
