Wednesday’s AP high court order on the 1,635 acres of prime land in Kokapet, passed in favor of the state government, has failed to bring much cheer to developers who had bought100 acres of this land in a much hyped auction in 2006. They maintained that the legal tussle over this land parcel is still unresolved as the third party now has the option of approaching the apex court. Dismissing any possibility of a ‘settlement’ with the government,developers insisted on a complete refund of their money paid to the Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA).

The Kokapet land (popular as the Golden Mile project) went under the hammer six years ago and was picked up by major construction firms, both from within and outside the state. The auction that was advertised on an international scale to draw foreign investors to Hyderabad, won the HMDA huge revenues with most plots sold for anywhere between Rs 9 crore and Rs 14 crore per acre. Soon after, however, the property ran into litigation with a third party (successors of Nawab Nusrat Jung Bahadur–I) staking claim over it. Bogged down by the title issue, some bidders dragged the government to court demanding a refund and even managed to clinch an order in their favor in 2008. The order, however, failed to win the buyers any money as the HMDA filed an appeal petition challenging their demand. The matter is still pending in court and is scheduled to come up for hearing next month.

“The government cheated us by auctioning litigated land. We have been forced to sit on it for over six years. There is no question of investing any more money in this property. Let the government refund our money and end our ordeal,” said a senior official of a Hyderabad-based realty firm that bought several acres in this auction.Developers fear that the land might again run into litigation in the future. “It is a high court order. The claimant still has the option of approaching the Supreme Court. What if he wins the case there? We will again be forced to pull out of the land,”said another outstation bidder

The fear of legalities apart, it is also the steep depreciation in land value that has buyers insisting on a refund. According to some,the worth of their property bought for Rs 12-14 crore per acre in 2006is nothing more than Rs 8-10 crore per acre at present. “If we get our money back, we can buy a bigger and better land parcel at a cheaper rate,” said a bidder while stressing on how the ‘deal’ has left a bad taste in the mouth of local and overseas investors. “We had drawn a lot of foreign firms to put there money in the project only because we were told it was government property. Now, they have all pulled out promising not to return to AP again,”the bidder added. HMDA officials could not be reached for a comment,despite repeated attempts.

One of the oldest city schools to get new building

HYDERABAD: After a five-year battle, one of the oldest schools in the city, the Government High School (GHS) at Errum Manzil Colony is all set to get a new building.

Chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy will lay the foundation stone for the new building at Errum Manzil colony along with the Nizam's Institute of Medical Sciences (Nims) expansion plan. Nims proposes to construct a new building for the Regional Institute of Para Medical Sciences (RIPS) by demolishing the existing school building. The school will continue to run from the existing structure till its new building is completed.

Incidentally, minister for secondary education K Parthasaradhi is an alumnus of the school. According to sources, he was a student in class IV during 1972-73 and later continued education at the government school near Raj Bhavan.

"Nims will bear the expenditure for not only the proposed institute but also for school building, staff quarters and other lab-related structures. Both central and state governments will spend around Rs 80 crore for the proposed expansion project. We have around 35 acre land at Errum Manzil colony," Nims director A Dharma Rakshak told TOI. "We will complete construction of the new school building within a year. Once the school is shifted to the new premises, the old building will be demolished. Till then, the school will continue functioning in the same building," the official said.

The estates officer of Hyderabad and Secunderabad Government Quarters issued eviction notices to the district educational officer (DEO) to vacate the school building when Nims proposed its expansion project five years ago.

Several students' organisations protested the demolition of the building. Even Andhra Pradesh State Human Rights Commission (APSHRC) took note of the issue and asked the government to provide alternate site for construction of the new school building.

"Based on SHRC's orders, we identified around 3,500 square yards of land belonging to the Association Buiding Errum Manzil, Mahila Mandal building and some vacant land between a few residential quarters at Errum Manzil colony. Nims also accepted to foot the bill for construction of the new school building," sources in Estates Office said.

When contacted, Government High School headmistress C B Nirmala said "The school's original strength was 450. On learning that the school building will be demolished, parents panicked and the strength came down to 220."

Chief Minister lays foundation for houses

Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy termed the State as the first in the country to construct houses for poor in 15,000 slums with an expenditure of Rs.9,000 crore under the Rajiv Awaas Yojana.

On Saturday, he laid foundation for construction of 334 houses at Keshava Nagar Colony near Gowlidoddi in Serilingampally municipal limits, at a cost of Rs.58.74 crore.

Houses will be constructed in 11 cities of the State, with costs shared equally between the State and Central governments, he said.

Construction of pucca houses and improvement in infrastructure where the pucca houses already exist are part of the scheme, while letting out the houses on temporary basis for those migrating from other districts is its major aim, he said. Central government is being requested to extend the scheme to 20 more cities in the state, he said. Mr. Reddy said that 55 lakh houses in the rural areas and 18 lakh houses in urban areas had been constructed by the government so far.

Road widening

He also shared plans to widen the road up to Narsingi on the Bombay Highway, with a cost of Rs.34 crore.

Union Minister for Petroleum S. Jaipal Reddy urged the government to regularise houses of the poor up to 80 to 100 square yards.

The Chief Minister distributed bank linkage loans to self help groups and pattas to the poor for the houses built before 2003.

This concept design was prepared by Ooze architects in 2011 for an unknown client:

Quote:
Forest Life

“Forest life” is a mixed residential and commercial project located in Gundala located 35 km south of Hyderabad city centre , India. The aim was to create an eco-community with different individual villa typologies located within the existing forest next to a much denser mixed use development with residential towers and a commercial podium with proximity shops leisure activities and offices located along the main road leaving Hyderabad towards the south. A communal sport / cultural centre and a temple were also located amongst the Villas and the Forest.





The design focuses on the integration of the existing natural landscape, the slope and the forest with the built environment. The client requirements had very strict requirements imposing rectangular plots and north south orientation following the “vastu” principles for the infrastructure and the residential units.



This gave birth to an interesting planning methodology combining a strict matrix grid of built structures interweaving with the natural elements of the site: Forest, water, topography. The interconnections between the different small quarters were one of the most important criteria of the urban design to insure that each unit is accessible by car, foot or cycle. Every part of the site is reachable via a network of half natural half landscaped public green spaces penetrating the built structure and creating zones for social interaction, natural screens that create spaces of privacy. Each living unit has one front access to a street and one back access to the green.



The typologies of the villas are based on the idea of a natural living in symbioses with nature. The garden is experienced as an extension of the living room. Patios and balconies include nature within the lived in environment. The boundaries between outside and inside are intentionally blurred.




Every unit is designed following sustainable criteria’s taking in consideration life cycles and autonomous systems incorporating the aspect of water, energy, and waste at different scales: the house, the community, the neighbourhood.



A climatic skin reinterpreting the traditional ornamental “Jali” (perforated stone or latticed screen) wraps around the living spaces. It is an evolving feature which transforms itself according to the orientation and the privacy requirements for each residential unit. Every unit is unique.

Prodigist - Great! Glad to see the project materializing and the design evolving from a mere concept to multiple detailed and realistic designs. There are also some towers in the back to look out for in the future.

Looking at the site and comparing it with the masterplan, it looks like they've built/building a couple of sample show villas along with the club.

i initially thought it as videocon royale but

videocon royale is designed by urban studio http://urbanstudioindia.com/projects...yale-hyderabad

i think village gundala is on NH 202 warangal highway, probably one of many projects coming up near the new infosys campus.

i didnt look at the designs in detail but they seem different.

i actually went to the site of videocon royale on srisailam highway earlier this year, two of the show villas were coming up and site looks good.
but very upscale for the location and not sure how this venture will pan out

The project is most likely a collaboration between Ooze architects and Urban Studio India.

There might have been a screwup by the architect on the name of the closest village, but there are absolutely no doubts about the actual site or the project name.

Not sure if this has been posted here before, but ran into these renders of a Mixed Used Development at Uppal by an Unknown Developer on the 'PG Patki Architects' Website.

Link:













Plotted the location on the map with the help of the above renders. This project is surrounded by the Genpact Uppal campus towards West and the Uppal Stadium towards the South. There used to be a Biscuit Factory on the plot before, looks like it has been razed and excavation work done, hope to see this project take off soon.

This is an absolutely stunning project. The location seems to be questionable based on current knowledge. Are these units built (some of them), and what would be the price level and horizon for occupancy. Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks
