Malleswaram | Mantri Greens | 41 fl Tower + Mall + Hilton hotel + Apartments

Bangalore: It’s yet another feather in Bangalore’s cap. This will be the only city in the country where the Metro train will stop at a swanky commercial tower with a spacious parking basement for cars, close to a huge mall.
The Sampige Road station at Malleswaram will be the only station of the 33 elevated ones under Metro’s phase I (to be completed by March 2013) to have such a plan. Passengers who get down at this station will have direct access to the tower and Mantri Mall on Sampige Road. With a 20-month deadline, this is also Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation’s (BMRC) first project to be taken up under public-private partnership (PPP) in the city.
Chief minister B S Yeddyurappa who laid the foundation stone for the project on Thursday, said: “This is the first PPP project for Bangalore Metro. Such initiatives should help in completion of projects on time. This is most important for a city like Bangalore that’s rapidly expanding.”
Apart from the local MLA and MPs from Bangalore North and Central, newly elected corporators of Malleswaram attended the event.
THE PPP WAY
BMRC has acquired 5 acres, 4 guntas of land for this station. This is from the total 24-acre land that belongs to Mantri Developers. As per the PPP arrangement, the land is being provided free of cost for constructing the station. The 80,000-sqft station at an estimated cost of Rs 30 crore will be constructed by Mantri Developers. This, as part of its project of an 8-lakh sqft commercial tower surrounding the station. The station will be designed by the BMRC.
Compensation to the private partner is the right to use the space surrounding the station ‘with due regard to safety norms’ for 99 years. During this period, the BMRC is also entitled to revenue share of 1% initially to 5% in the later stages.

BMRC, Mantri set up joint venture

April 15th, 2010
DC Correspondent

April 14: The Bengaluru Metro Rail Corporation Ltd.(BMRCL) and Mantri Developers have entered into a joint venture for the construction the Swastik Metro station at Seshadripuram.

It is a win - win situation for both Mantri and BMRCL as the commercial dividends will be shared between the two, official sources said. The pact will be inked in the presence of Chief Minister B. S. Yeddyurappa on Thursday.
BMRCL will acquire 5.04 acres of the 24 acres belonging to Mantri for the station, which the company will build along with a commercial tower at a cost of Rs 30 crore as part of its mega plan to create a commercial hub over 24 acres in the heart of the city. “Mantri Developers will construct a Metro station according to BMRCL's specifications.

While BMRCL will earn revenue out of the commercial real estate development, Mantri will continue to have a hold on the property which it acquired through an auction.

However, the percentage of each company's share has not yet been decided," sources added. Mantri may come with its own design for the station subject to the approval of the BMRCL or it could go for a design suggested by the BMRCL.

Expression of interest will be invited from builders keen on entering a public-private-partnership for construction of Metro stations with commercial complexes.

As Namma Metro will cut through Mantri property, people will not only have access to the Metro station, but will also be able to enjoy a shopping experience.

All I can say is that I pity the people living in this apartment complex. Even if I had all the money in the world, I wouldn't live amidst all that confusion, congestion and noise. Even though, it is NEXT to a Metro station..

Actually this is nothing compared to HK, I've lived there for a couple of weeks and it was really horrible, almost everyone I met had some sort of breathing, stress and lung disorder due to pollution.

Builder shelves twin projects

Quote:
Mantri Developers Gets All Approvals, But Has No Plans To Build Complexes
Vinay Madhav & Aarthi R | TNN

Bangalore: How often does a developer get all the regulatory approvals for blockbuster projects and then decides not to implement them? Quite unheard of, actually. But that’s exactly what’s happening around Metro’s Swastik station in Malleswaram.
Mantri Developers has submitted proposals and got approvals to build two large complexes on land that was originally notified for acquisition by the BMRC for the Metro project in Malleswaram. Now under Public-Private Partnership (PPP) that Mantri group has entered into with BMRCL, a metro station is being built at the site along with a residential tower of 34 floors and commercial tower of 18 floors. Both these buildings will have three basements each. On this five acre plot, the metro station will come up on two acres of land. Mantri’s been allowed to build these projects in lieu of the land given to the Metro.
Approval for these towers has been granted by BBMP as well as the fire department. However Sushil Mantri, chairman and managing director of Mantri Developers told TOI: “We have no other plans apart from the Metro station right now.”
The twin projects have aroused a lot of interest among residents in Malleswaram as the traffic situation in the vicinity of the project has been exacerbated by the opening of the hugely popular Mantri Mall. In fact, next to the mall, there’s already another Mantri residential project.
According to BBMP, the project proposal was approved when Bharat Lal Meena was the commissioner. When contacted, Meena confirmed saying, “Yes. A part building approval was given for the complex. But, that was in accordance with the permissible FAR and also depending on the road width.’’
Fire force director (technical) B G Chengappa said that the department had cleared the project. “There are three buildings in it. The commercial tower will stand 18 floors above the ground floor, the residential building will have 34 floors above the ground floor. Both the buildings will have three basements each and a ground floor. While the commercial tower is 79.45 meters, the residential complex will measure 112.95 meters,’’ he said.
This makes Mr Mantri’s comments to TOI that he’s not developing these two projects even more intriguing.
The other party involved, BMRC MD N Sivasailam made it very clear to TOI: “BMRC is involved only in the station. This also includes the commercial complex above the station platform and the alternate road arrangement for traffic management that’s being taken up by the BBMP. This is less than two acre of the total five acre land. The other complexes, if any will not come under our purview. That land is not ours so how can we have a say in it?’’
The project needs clearance from Karnataka State Pollution Control Board. Its chairman Sadashivaiah said that it had not come to them yet. “All the railway projects are out of our purview. However, the other two buildings have to get clearance from us,’’ he added.
As local residents are concerned about the traffic congestion of the projects, TOI spoke to additional commissioner of police (traffic), Praveen Sood. He was not aware of these developments. “I am hearing it for the first time. If such a plan comes up, those developing the project will have to show supporting plans to ensure smooth flow of traffic,’’ he added.
WHAT THE PROJECT IS ALL ABOUT Two complexes (a commercial and a residential ) are being built by Mantri as a result to having given 2-acres of land for the metro station in Malleswaram. The remaining threeacre parcel left-over within 150 m from the station boundary has earned the builders 4 times Floor Area ratio (FAR) as per the government order (GO). This, adds upto approx.
51 floors or 10-12 lakh sq ft built up area.
The PPP agreement available on BMRCL’s website makes it very clear that “the available FAR after the construction of the tower shall be utilized by the concessionaire exclusively on its land for an integrated development as per the scheme.’’
PEOPLE SIDE Lack of clarity on the proposed developments has worried residents of Malleshwaram. “Nobody is giving us clear answers. We have approached almost all concerned agencies,’’ Anand Sirur, president of Malleswaram Swabhimana initiative told TOI. ABIDe’s convenor and MP (Rajya Sabha) Rajeev Chandrasekhar said, “A number of Malleswaram residents have met me and conveyed their worries, concerns, anguish and frustration at the ‘transformation’ of their neighbourhood - a transformation that’s not just altering their neighbourhood but also bringing in commercial development and all its consequent issues of traffic, law and order, sanitation with no solutions or plans for any of that. I have promised my support to them in asking the government to seek out citizen views in any transformation of a neighbourhood and have citizens agree to such transformation before its permitted. I have also urged them to reach out to their local MLA and corporators and brief them and seek their support in approaching the CM.”

Commercial complex: 85,346 sq mtr (Built up area) — 79.45 m (height)
Residential complex: 62,009 sq mtr (Built up area) — 112.95 m (height)
Metro station: 7,406 sq mtr (built-up area) — 10.65 m (height)

EXPERT OPINION
Whenever such a huge project of more than 20,000 sq mtr or 2 lakh sq feet built-up area is envisaged, the client has to do various studies and submit the environment impact assessment or rapid environment impact assessment report to state committee formed by GoI MOEF. For this, they should take a water-quality, water sampling and sewage, drainage, electricity and traffic impact assessment’’
