Just saw today that construction work has started in one of the plot opposite to Alliah/Haj house. Not sure about which bank has started but construction is being done by NBCC and their board was visible. I will let you know once I confirm which plot is that. I am guessing that it could be Allahabad bank / UCO or Corporation Bank.

FINTECH HUB - Hidco launches project on 27 acres

The Housing Infrastructure Development Corporation (Hidco) on Saturday launched the Fintech hub project that will come up on a prime land in the central business district of New Town.

The authorities have floated expression of interest to allot 15 vacant plots having a total area of nearly 27.738 acres on lease-hold basis for 99 years from intending IT and IT enabled firms engaged in financial technical services like automatic digital banking, digital payments, share market analytics, asset management and insurance predictions. The size of each of the 15 plots ranges from one acre to four acres.

According to the tender document, the offer price is Rs 13 crore per acre as one-time lease premium, applicable for each of the plots offered. The land is adjacent to the international financial hub where 21 financial institutions, which have an annual turnover of over Rs 500 crore, have been allotted space.

Hidco officials said the Fintech hub would be one of its kind in eastern India that is expected to attract Rs 16,000 crore of investment.

In August this year Hidco decided to develop a Fintech hub, keeping in mind that the financial technology industry is gradually turning out to be a game-changer in financial and banking sectors.

The Concept:

In addition to the development of Fintech Hub , WB HIDCO has decided to develop an Iconic Tower Building also to accommodate mainly Commercial and Residential activities on a 4 acre plot within the CBD adjoining the Fintech Hub complex. The aim of the project is to develop the said plot of land with a State Of the Art Iconic Tower, which should include the following major features:


• The project shall have an Iconic Tower which would be a land mark building in the New Town with the vision and development objective of Fintech Hub.
The Tower should stand above the rest of the adjoining buildings and would have visibility from a long distance, but should not violate Civil Aviation restrictions.
• The Tower shall be developed as a unique world class facility with futuristic concept and should capture the aspiration of HIDCO to build an Iconic structure.
The Iconic Tower should be an Architectural Marvel and should have world class facilities The Architectural features and the planning should conform to the Urban Scape of the area including adjoining land uses, development norms, rules and regulations applicable for such development in New Town.
• The Tower itself would be like a Fintech City accommodating all the related facilities.
• The Concept of Green Building may be integrated with the development of the Tower with emphasis on preservation and enhancement of the environment

It would be a single high rise Iconic Tower (at least 30 storied plus high or maximum height allowed by Airports Authority of India). Other building parameters would be as per the existing building rules of the New Town Kolkata Development Authority (NKDA)

The building would include all the utilities and facilities required for such Iconic Tower. 51% of the total available space is to be used for Commercial and maximum
49% for Residential purposes.
Hope this materializes soon...
