You can't 'peel off' the heritage tag like that with a cosmetic makeover.

Well if the builder waits for a year or so no one would remember it being heritage and thus no complaints while finally demolishing it.

Its not because of the hate for the colonial rulers. Its general tendency of Indian public and apathy towards heritage. Take any old monument, Biritish or non british, they lie in same condition of decay.

Also problem with colonial structures of Mumbai is the sky rocketing land prices. The piece of land these small heritage structures occupy today are most priciest chunks in whole world. Any body would salivate at making commercial use of it. This is my logic. Please feel free to add.

What is needed is a comprehensive heritage policy which makes justice to both the parties.

I think the people owning or residing these colonial structures should be allowed extra fsi so that they can sell it to builder who can make towers in lower parel or upwards ans these bungalows can be renovated/maintained/ or even glamourised by turning them into chic restaurants bars or pubs or maybe boutique office area for hedfe funds etc

I remember visiting Mumbai a few yrs ago. It was beautiful, exhilarating, shocking and so much more. All wrapped into one. A bit like a parallel world.

Anyway, I'm from England, and I remember us driving through really dense streets in Central Mumbai. Then we stopped in a jam, and the taxi driver pointed out. The other occupants didn't notice anything. Then I noticed. In the middle of Mumbai, I was "back in the English suburbs". It looked like a 1920s area, a village green and houses with those gables. Victorian tudor plaster type decoration. A little like this sort of thing:-

Can anyone tell me where this area would be?
Is it currently a popular/prestigious area? Is it ex pats or local citizens?

Many thanks. Oh and beautiful thread!

Hello!

The only building that I can think of sporting the type of facade as shown in the photo, is the Bandra Gymkhana, on D'Monte Park road in Bandra (W).


The area's residents are majority Catholic, and most of the smaller homes resembling little country villas were constructed pre-independence. A lot of these old villas/bungalows have been/are being converted into luxury high rises with mostly locals and a nice sprinkling of expats from all over the world as their occupants. It's a great neighbourhood to live in IMO

Woaaahhhhh!!!! That's so damn beautiful. Can't believe this is the same girgaum. I have always known that place to be full of old dilapidated and filthy buildings. Are there more auch hidden jewels in central mumbai?

Its utterly outrageous, shocking change, and they turned it into such a hideous edifice. I just can't imagine why are there not any government or NGO who stop it from happening???
It is by no mean the most hideous renovation I have seen in my life. Do you guys have a regeneration trust locally??
