Besides, no matter what kind of surveys people cough up to compare thirdworld capitals to (developed India's) Mumbai, one thing is clear that we are 'supposed' to be an international city (hahahaha..) and a financial capital. The least we Mumbaikars can do is to change our mindset of complacency and come out of our comforted arses zone to clean up and spruce up our city.

A huge emphasis is needed - and a highest order of the day - to put Mumbai's civic amenities to international standards. It is no use building glittering skyscrapers when on streetlevel, we have another wartorne Lebanon lookalike!

I'd feel there's more of a terrorist thread in Mumbai than Colombo. And no doubt that Colombo is much cleaner.

Ashok Chavan's Mega City will re-energise state

Shubhangi Khapre / DNASaturday, March 6, 2010 0:34 IST

Mumbai: Finally, chief minister Ashok Chavan has something to showcase. The state government has given approval to start work on the world’s second largest ‘energy city’ project with an investment of Rs50,000 crore in Panvel, 65km from Mumbai.



On Sunday, Chavan will lay the foundation stone for the Mega City project, which will include a state-of-the-art energy city, an entertainment city, and an information technology and telecom city, spread over an area of 2,100 acres.

According to a senior secretary in the chief minister’s office, the only parallel to such a massive project including the three components of energy, telecom, and entertainment is in Qatar.

The official said the Panvel project would provide direct employment to 2.5 lakh peopleand indirect employment to 5 lakh.
The chief minister, who is personally monitoring the project, held a meeting last week with senior officials to streamline coordination among the various civic and infrastructure agencies that will play roles in the project.

The Mega City project is being financed by Gulf Finance House and executed by Valuable Properties Private Limited. An insider in the chief minister’s office said, “Chavan initiated the project discussions in 2006 when he was industry minister in Vilasrao Deshmukh’s cabinet.”

Unlike the special economic zones (SEZs), which have hit roadblocks in many places with farmers refusing to give up their land, the Mega City scheme does not face any such hurdles.

Officials in the industry and revenue ministries said, “The total requirement of land is 2,100 acres. We have already taken possession of 1,465 acres.”

Even for the remaining land, the government does not expect any opposition from local residents. The villages which have had to part with land for the project include Wandoli, Loniwali, Bherle, Chikele, Wangni-Vaze, Mohoshivkar, and Pali-Khurd.

The project, which is being funded entirely by private investors, will not need any subsidy from the state government. But the chief minister, who is also chairman of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority, has committed his government to assist the project by providing infrastructure

^
great news.

I think the GOM cant do anything about this.

they need to start a fast line on the harbour line from panvel and get Panvel to CST in 50 min(which is possible through existing rakes) at a frequency of 3-4 min.

and boost the thane-nerul-panvel route with more trains

so its Indian railways who will provide the infra needed. GOM cant do much

having said that, i hope the maha mumbai sez also happens. thats more important and driven by local Indian industry

From their website -

Quote:
The GFH Mumbai Economic Development Zone is set to be one of the largest development projects in the state – a state-of-the-art Economic Development Zone - just outside Mumbai, the country’s financial and commercial capital.
The 1600-acre zone, which will attract a total investment in excess of US$10 billion, comes exactly a year after GFH had signed a similar agreement with the state for the development of India’s first energy business district – Energy City India. The bank had floated an immensely successful private placement initiative earlier this year that raised US$630 million towards the first phase of its development. The economic development zone announced today will include Energy City India, apart from incorporating three additional components – Telecom City Mumbai , Software City Mumbai and Entertainment City Mumbai.

Thought this project had disappeared. Well it's about time some mega projects come up in Maharashtra, Gujarat is really starting to take over.

Unlike the Island City, Navi Mumbai has lots of open space to expand.

Work on Rs 100-cr heritage centre to begin on Tuesday

Bella Jaisinghani I TNN

Mumbai: One of Indias most ambitious cultural projects that calls for an investment of Rs 100 crore takes off in Navi Mumbai on Tuesday.Chief minister Ashok Chavan and union HRD minister Kapil Sibal will lay the foundation stone of the Living Heritage Centre that is being built on a five-acre plot in Kharghar.
The project is a joint partnership between Cidco and the Surabhi Foundation,a cultural organisation founded by documentary film-maker Siddharth Kak.It is part of the larger Central Park being developed by Cidco and is expected to be thrown open to the public in 2012.
The government agency has allotted land,for which Surabhi Foundation will have to pay a certain fee every year.The onerous task of raising almost Rs 100 crore by way of investment is left to the cultural organisation,which has appointed professionals for this purpose.
This is a dream come true.The Living Heritage Centre will be the first theme park based on India, says Kak of Surabhi fame.
The centre will have something for every kind of visitor,says Kak.For example,visitors can explore the durbar of Maratha king Shivaji and seek darshan or approach emperor Akbar who will even take questions that he is programmed to answer.At the entrance,you will see a wax museum of the leaders who shaped India.But dont be surprised if one of them puts his arm around you for we will embed live actors amidst the figurines, laughs Kak.
A composite training programme is proposed for professionals who wish to learn how to manage such a living museum,conceptualise and market it.

An Akshar construction. Aparently the idiots are asking for 14k per sqft. Can't imagine why anyone would pay that amount for this building. The cheap-ass glass finish visible in the 2nd image is what the building will finally look like.

Another ugly building to add to the "awesome" buildings along palm beach.






These building belong to the Progressive Group complex. Was spoken about in the last few pages I think. The second image shows the sample flat exteriors. Seems to be a good quite decent.






And finally, the beginning of the rape of palm beach road. The road was by far the best road in Mumbai. Not a bump. Not a shudder. And now these bast*rds have come along with their WOOD powered (!!!! its bloody 2010) bitumen to f**k things up.







Taken from my phone. Saved me alot of trouble. Had to drive slow and stop to take the pics of the buildings, and it so happened that the NM cops decided to do a speed check along Palm Beach Road at just about the same time. Was going about a 100 below my usual speed.

GFHs $10-billion world-class economic zone will spur Gulf NRIs to invest more in Navi Mumbai, says Dubai-based Sternon

Gulf Finance Houses US$ 10 billion Economic Development Zone (EDZ), Indias largest FDI-driven project, whose grounding breaking ceremony was graced by the Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan on March 7, 2010, has boosted Navi Mumbais position as one of the most attractive investment options in India, according to Hussaini F. Nalwalla, Managing Director of the Dubai-based Sternon Real Estate.

It is undoubtedly the most iconic world-class project to be undertaken in India, said Nalwalla, whose company is marketing and promoting the exclusive NRI township Magic Hills in Navi Mumbai, being developed by Garnet Construction Ltd, Mumbai. The sheer scale and magnitude of the project have certainly put Navi Mumbai in the league of Indias preferred business and leisure destinations.

Spread over an area of over 1,750 acres, close to the proposed Navi Mumbai international airport, the GFH EDZ will comprise three distinct components: Energy City, IT & Telecom City and Entertainment City. When completed, it will house 140,000 residents, generating direct employment for 250,000 people and indirect employment for as many as 750,000.

When Sternon first tied up with Garnet Construction to promote Magic Hills, we did not even dream that a project like the GFH EDZ was possible in Navi Mumbai. But the fact that work on the mega project has already begun and the direct support of the Chief Minister himself go to show the Maharashtra governments commitment to its implementation, added Nalwalla.

As Magic Hills was among the first integrated townships to be launched in Navi Mumbai, our early investors have been fortunate to book our bungalows, villas and row-houses at very attractive rates, said Nalwalla. Now, with work commencing on the EDZ site and Navi Mumbai International Airport, there has been all-round appreciation in property rates. And this is just the beginning.

Construction of the Magic Hills project is progressing rapidly, said Nalwalla. Currently, plinth and slab work is being carried out on 230 villas, alongside infrastructure work on the site. For Phase 2, work on modern twin bungalows and row-houses is scheduled to commence shortly.


Arun Kedia, Managing Director of Garnet Construction, commented: Navi Mumbai is shaping into a global business hub, as Mumbai city has been saturated and there is no land available for mega projects. When we conceived Magic Hills we had anticipated that this satellite city would be a land of great opportunities. The emergence of projects like the GFH EDZ and several others has proved that our hunch was right. Now, Magic Hills is right in the middle of some of the most amazing projects in India.
