Samir, thanks for the effort. The lodha project is coming up on the block which is right between the metro/monorail casting yards and the yard of which you took the images.

This map shows who's using what part of that area. I'm absolutely sure about the location monorail and metro yards.
I might have mixed the eastern freeway and jkumar's yard but this arrangement (with simplex's projects side by side) seems to be about right.

You took pics of JKumar's yard (shown in blue) which is why you see a flyover segment in this picture.

Simply Brilliant bro

Ok so land that you are saying is going to be used in the Lodha Project is the truck terminal. WIll take some pics of that . The issue is that the terminal is still very much active and the land is not handed over to Lodha as yet and while speaking to a Lodha Rep he told me that the booking for this project will start within this year itself . So I am a bit confused

Ok so now I am guessing I have taken the rights pics..
The truck terminal is very much active so I dont see this project starting anytime soon



The petrol pump .. Vikas Motor Co which is supposedly part of the land



and finally the monorail construction

Samir, thanks for the pics. As you must have read on the previous pages, Lodha is still evaluating the best design to choose and build. Once they do that and have the funds tied up, they'll launch the project and the truck terminal will become history. The MMRDA is already scouting for sites in Navi Mumbai, Thane and Borivali.

Cheers Samir.

Though I don't see that design making it through, well not at that height at least. 500m+ is way to high for that area.

There's nothing wrong with the height in Callison's design. The original Iconic tower was supposed to rise to 526 meters so that's one of the technical parameters the Lodhas have asked all the architects to stick to.

Also nothing wrong with the area since it'll see a lot of development in the coming years thanks to the monorail, eastern freeway and later the metro. The MMRDA in the meantime is planning on selling off the rest of the land that's there around the truck terminus.

who would have thought 10 years ago that a 700m+ building would be standing in the middle of the desert

Not to mention RCF which will eventually pack up and leave (They have already approved redevelopment of their quarters)...and have set up another huge plant somewhere in the konkan...

Also BPCL owns the other large tract of land there and they might downsize as well...

I remember many years ago my dad was getting a good deal in bhakti park (as bombay boy mentioned middle of the desert)...dont think the imax was up yet and was a forgotten unreachable part of bombay...he didn't take up the option because it was close to RCF , transport etc....

How things are changing now.......he would have been laughing all the way to the bank had we bought that one then....

Yes. Monorail is certainly doing justice to Wadala. Before that there weren't lot of development articles related to Wadala. Now, I just hope that the authorities try to do a good job. They definitely have a chance to develop this end of the city because if this building comes up, builders would be looking for a cluster.

May be that's a reason to make a desert blossom with cluster of buildings, may be some 80 floor ones.

The truck terminus is being refurbished with roads being concretised.It also houses all the allied truck related infrastructure like offices of transport companies, truck repair shops. The terminus isn't going anywhere as long as MBPT is running.All the trucks who wants to enter mumbai or want to go to port have to make a halt here as they cant enter mumbai during day time, so this place acts as a transit point for them.

Coolguyz is right. It always helps when we've got locals on board the forum. Apologies from my side for showing the wrong plot. I was always under the impression that a portion of the truck terminal was sold off to the Lodhas.

Satellite image with the aerial view render from Callison's design for comparison:

Here's a recent article that talks about the MMRDA planning on moving the truck terminal and ISBT to other locations - http://www.hindustantimes.com/Planni...e1-557345.aspx

Yea, even I have read that article but the problem is NH 8 which starts at Dahisar connects Mumbai to delhi is way too crowded,its the busiest in terms of truck traffic, the area around octroi in dahisar serves for the trucks coming from North plus the octroi near the Vashi bridge takes way too long to clear all the trucks which comes from the South and eastern side of the country so as quickly as trucks gets clearence from the octroi they need some place close to city where they can stay for the day and move towards the ports in the night without getting any delayed. Same goes for the buses, most of the long distance interstate buses leave at night and there arent much space in the city for them to park or service vehicles during daytime.

Conclusion is this is the right place for ISBT and truck terminus.

In the future it could change, if MTHL is built, so that they dont have to enter through any of the mumbai's arterial roads as octroi will be built on the Vashi side and they could enter directly into the ports at Sewri from NH 3 and NH 17
