The hotel is based within seven acres. The existing hotel building will be completely demolished and rebuilt to Radisson specifications.

Something is wrong here. How can the hotel be near Diamond Harbour and yet be one kilometre from the Airport?

I think they are referring to the Airport Hotel which was sold by MBD group to another company.

Radisson does have a hotel in Raichak (which can be said to be somewhat close to Diamond Harbour).

I guess they will be rebuilding/renovating the erstwhile airport ashok hotel which is now acquired by mbd group. So now it appears carlson will buy it 4m mbd. The hotel @ raichak is an altogether different one that is the ffort-a radisson resort.....

Interesting proposal for Uttarpara


Project proposed at HM site

TOI Epaper

Quote:
A hi-tech office tower that rises 30 levels into the sky, 7,000 apartments stacked in 18-19 storey condominiums, 500 villas and row houses spread across sprawling landscaped gardens and a lake.

Welcome to the blueprint of Bengal Shriram Hi-Tech City, the proposed sprawling mixed-use township that may come up at the Hindustan Motors’ factory site. While the workshop, spread across 435 acre will be retained, the remaining 314 acre are being carved out for the IT township and ancillary park.

The Rs 6,600-crore project, one of the largest in the state, will be developed over five years by Shriram Properties, the real-estate wing of the Rs 23,000-crore Shriram group.

“It is one of the most ambitious projects we have undertaken. The IT industry in Kolkata is restricted to Salt Lake and a small section of New Town. Many of our international IT partners have already evinced interest,”
Bengal Shriram general manager (commercial) Dibyojyoti Ghosh said.

Equipped with high-speed fibre optic connectivity, the 2-million sq ft plug-and-play facility will comprise aesthetically designed IT and ITeS office spaces. The auto ancillary park will target manufacturers of smart printed circuit board-based parts. The 30-storey tower will adhere to green building norms.

The commercial development will also include a shopping mall with a six-screen multiplex and a food court. Also on the offing is a golf club with a nine-hole green.

“We have to offer worldclass facilities to attract big companies. The infrastructure has to cater to nearly 65,000 people,” Ghosh said.

On the residential front, the total built-up area will be 4 million sq ft comprising highrises, row houses and villas. The plan is to develop vertically so that ground coverage does not exceed 13.5% of the land parcel.

The most attractive feature of the project is a lake spread over 30 acre amid the lush landscaped lawns and gardens. “It is large enough to organise rowing and kayaking contests. Regenerating and preserving the waterbody will be central to the project,” he said.

In social infrastructure, Bengal Shriram plans to set up two schools and two hospitals. While the schools will be affiliated to the state and a central board, one of the hospitals will be a super-speciality facility.

Good news. Govt needs to be proactive in developing/promoting other parts of Kolkata in addition to Salt lake and New town. How is the present connectivity from Uttarpara to the rest of the region ?

Mall with focus on fine food - Brands in beeline for informal evening relaxation address on Bypass...

SUBHRO SAHA


Architect’s impression of Silver Arcade and Spring Club, with Silver Spring as backdrop

Travel back in time to savour Wazwan fare from the sigris of undivided Kashmir, tuck into an Oriental crab cake or sip a laid-back cappuccino. On your way out, check out the latest that BMW has to offer in its first showroom in eastern India. Mainland China and Tangerine, Café Coffee Day and Amber — all under one roof, right here on the burgeoning Bypass.

Silver Arcade, Calcutta’s first retail format “focused primarily on fine F&B”, next to Spring Club and the Silver Spring condo complex, is ready to open its doors to a clutch of top-notch taste-bud ticklers.

“The concept of the mini mall evolved from the growing exclusivity of the location, with two more five-star hotels about to come up. Our objective is to offer an eclectic spread that can compete with the star addresses,” says Piyush Bhagat, director, Springfield Projects, developers of the mall.

Anjan Chatterjee of Speciality Restaurants, who is bringing the Mainland China brand and also Calcutta’s first Sigree — “lost cuisine from undivided India” — to the mall, agrees that Silver Arcade would provide competition to the five-stars. “Our effort is to bring to the city forgotten dishes, like Pakistani Nihari Gosht. The strong recall of our brands will draw guests even from the five-stars,” Chatterjee tells Metro.

While Sigree will be a 140-cover restaurant, Mainland China II will seat 150. Both the eateries, taking up nearly 20,000 sq ft, are set to entertain diners by the year-end.

Another popular restaurant brand, Tangerine, was the first big name to move in, flagging off its banquets last week. “Our banquets will offer multi-cuisine fare, catering to corporate bashes, theme parties and product launches,” declares Jyoti Pandey, director, Tangerine.

Silver Arcade is Calcutta’s “first informal mall for evening relaxation”, explains architect J.P. Agrawal, who has designed the 75,000-sq-ft retail rendezvous. Amber, which has taken up 2,500 sq ft, is doing a lounge- bar and a 90-seater restaurant, also set to open by the year-end.

“High-end cars have great synergy with fine food. Besides the exclusive BMW showroom, Glix will set up a car-detailing spa in the mall,” says Bhagat.

Hi-tech in township - Automated car park with mall, plex

A STAFF REPORTER



Salt Lake City, with its rapid expansion, is ready for an automated parking lot. A Telegraph picture

Salt Lake residents are set to get an automated parking lot, which will share space with a mall and a multiplex.

The complex will come up on 4.5 acres opposite the Calcutta Metropolitan Development Authority (CMDA) administrative building in Sector I.

“Twelve companies have participated in the bidding. We hope to finish the processing work by the second week of August, following which construction will begin. The project will be ready in a year and a half,” said P.R. Baviskar, the chief executive officer of the CMDA, which will execute the Rs 16-crore project.

“The parking lot, with space for 200 cars, will be set up in a four-storeyed building that will also house a mall and a multiplex. The parking fee will be reasonable,” he added.

The private-public partnership model has been selected for the project.

The Calcutta Municipal Corporation has built automated parking lots at Rawdon Square and under Lindsay Street. A third, to be developed by the public works department, is expected at BBD Bag.

With the rapid development of Salt Lake, especially with the expansion of Sector V and the new township at Rajarhat, an automated parking lot has become an “absolute necessity” for smooth movement of traffic in the township, said a senior CMDA official.

Course for shopkeepers - Demand-supply mismatch in retail prompts initiative

SUBHRO SAHA

With the relentless onslaught of the Big Bazaars, Spencers and Reliances and increasing consumer tilt towards organised retail, the future of the neighbourhood kirana stores looks grim.

According to a joint study by the Confederation of Indian Industry and the Images Group, organised retail in eastern India is projected to cross the Rs 100-billion mark by 2010, a figure likely to furrow the foreheads of the mom-n-pop store-owners.

The PC Chandra School of Business, rolling out its retail management programme next month at its Salt Lake campus, aims to equip these kirana shop-owners to meet the challenges posed by the organised segment.

The move has been appreciated by the Bengal Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI).

“They are actually doing a social marketing intervention. This genre of entrepreneurs, by getting formal inputs, can gain a competitive edge and kudos to the PC Chandra Group for trying to empower this crucial segment,” says Khokan Mukerji, the BCCI secretary-general.

“While our B-school will offer a retail management course at the postgraduate level besides the usual MBA, an undergraduate programme will be aimed specifically at the kirana shop-owners,” A.K. Chandra, the managing director of the company, tells Metro.

Chandra feels there is a massive demand-supply mis- match in the retail industry and specialised skill sets, which could throw a lifeline to the neighbourhood stores, are desperately needed.

This is the group’s first foray into education, which is popularly known for jewellery retail and exports and other businesses.

“The neighbourhood stores lack the basic managerial skills in accounting, purchasing, supply chain, logistics and understanding consumer behaviour,” observes Shyamal Kumar Ghosh, the dean of the school and former professor of finance at the Indian Institute of Management, Calcutta.

Ghosh feels these shortcomings, coupled with the inability to muster financial resources big businesses can readily command and a lack of understanding of the overall demographics and economic changes taking place, and the legal structure, put the kirana stores at a disadvantage.

The PC Chandra School of Business offers a one-year course on retail management to these store-owners to help them “not only to survive but grow as well”.

One has to be at least a Plus-II pass-out to seek admission to the course. Classes will be held in the mornings and weekends, so that work schedules are not disturbed.

Retail management, it seems, is quite the flavour of the season. While Pantaloon Retail has tied up with the Indian Institute of Social Welfare and Business Management, Retail Association of India has joined hands with NSHM Knowledge Campus.

Recently, Bharti Enterprises has decided to tie up with International Institute of Advanced Studies (IIAS).

The PC Chandra group, which is opening its Salt Lake Sector III B-school with 150 students, hopes to absorb a healthy share of the pass-outs.

New Projects by Space Circle

Space group plans new projects in Kolkata, Chennai
Pradipta Mukherjee / Kolkata August 03, 2007
Kolkata-based Space Group, the real estate developer specialising in developing clubs, lifestyle-based residencies and shopping malls, has lined up an estimated investment of close to Rs 225 crore in Kolkata and Rs 350 crore in Chennai over the next three years.

An additional Rs 125 crore has already been invested in various projects in Kolkata that are under construction right now.

The 15-year-old Space Group has so far completed and sold off five projects in West Bengal worth around Rs 400 crore like Space Town, Club Town, Club Town Enclave and Club Town Estates.

Piyush Bhagat, director of Space Group, said the company is keen on partnership with private players to build residencies, clubs and shopping malls in and around West Bengal and in Chennai.

"We plan to build a Rs 200 crore bungalow complex in Rajarhat over 70 acres under the Springfields Projects banner," said Bhagat.

Bungalow sizes would range from 2,500 sq to 5,000 sq ft, and while prices had not been decided, they would have a club attached.

Built over 3 acres, the club at Rajarhat would focus on outdoor sports like cricket and football.

The club would have facilities like gym, swimming pool, food centres and banquet halls.

The club would be built under Springfield Projects banner.

Springfield Projects was formed two years ago. So far it has built the 'Silver Spring Residency' and the Rs 22 crore ‘Spring Club' on the Eastern Metropolitan Bypass in Kolkata.

The Space Group is building a 300,000 sq.ft. shopping mall on B T Road in Kolkata, to be completed by 2009.

"We are in the process of identifying the brands for the mall with car parking for close to 300 cars and 200 two-wheelers," Bhagat said.

Space Group is also building a 350,000 sq.ft. 'Club Town Residency' on B T Road as well, due for completion in 2008, with apartments of upto 1700 sq.ft. and priced at Rs 1,600 per sq.ft..

The group is also planning a Rs 350 crore 30-acre residential complex in Chennai to be completed within three years from now and built under the Olympia banner, said Bhagat.

Bhagat said the group recently completed a Rs 400 crore, 1.35 million sq. ft. green building in Chennai under the Olympia banner in partnership with Khivraj and MK groups.

The residential complex in Chennai would have 2500 apartments built in phases with the first phase having 820 apartments of upto 3000 sq ft priced at Rs 3,000 per sq.ft., with attached club, service apartments, hotels and other facilities, Bhagat said.

"We would also rent out some apartments to people with transferable jobs. Families could stay here for rent of close to Rs 2 lakh per month," Bhagat added.

New Project Launch: Greenwood Element

Shrachi's new project adjoining Greenwood Sonata.. 6 towers of G+4 to G+12 floors with 208 units.. I guess they are making use of the FSI..


"Greenwood Elements is strategically located at New Town, beside important landmarks like City Centre II, Greenwood Sonata and the Synthesis Business Park. More so it is only 5 minutes away from Haldiram-VIP Road and just 10 minutes from the NSCB Airport."
