Multi-level parking lots get state go-ahead
Pandurang.Mhaske @timesgroup.com


The state government last month finally approved proposals to set up almost 30,000 multi-storeyed parking lots across the city.
Girish Patil, executive engineer of road, BMC, said the only solution to the city’s parking woes is to create multilevel parking. “We have received the government nod for the same.”
The state had formulated the parking policy in 2002, but scrapped it in 2008 after finding that a number of private builders had been taking undue advantage of the Development Control Regulation (DCR) 33(24) – which allowed builders additional FSI if they constructed public parking spaces. However, using the additional FSI gained from their projects, some builders started building as many as 15 storeys in South Mumbai. This led to fears of overcrowding in areas such as Lower Parel and Worli, where demand for development is high.
The government then revised the policy and proposed the new amendment in April 2011. By July, the state had received and approved 32 proposals. “The state has now restricted construction to four levels,” said Patil. “No builder will be able to exploit the scheme.”
These 32 proposals will provide 29,924 parking slots across the city – 20 proposals are from the island city, 7 from western suburbs and 5 are from eastern suburb. The biggest parking lot among these is at Mumbai Textile Mills, Lower Parel with a capacity to park 4565 cars.

One of the parking lots is supposed to come up in Jupiter Mills compound, Lower Parel

The news below means 4(upper)+1(ground)+2(Basement) levels are allowed at present for public parking projects, as per new policy. So Indiabulls Sky Forest probably has seven public parking floors as per new policy.


*****************


Extra public parking can fetch FSI benefits: HC

http://www.indianexpress.com/news/ex...ts-hc/972478/0

Express news service : Tue Jul 10 2012, 04:09 hrs


In a ruling that could set a precedent in cases related to public parking in the city, the Bombay High Court on Monday ruled in favour of a developer who proposes to construct as many as 14 floors for public parking and thereby gain FSI benefits.
Kohinoor CTS Infrastructure Company had moved the court after the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) issued a stop-work notice to the project, located near the Shiv Sena Bhawan at Shivaji Park. The BMC gave the notice citing the present policy on public parking, which restricts it to four upper floors, in addition to the ground floor and two basement floors. The company proposes to construct 18 residential floors above the parking area. Earlier, the civic body had a policy of granting extra FSI to builders who constructed extra floors for public parking. Under this policy, the company got its plan sanctioned by the BMC in February 2006.
The Union Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF) also later gave its go-ahead to the project on August 22, 2006.
However, after the change in policy last year, the BMC issued a showcause notice to the developer.
During the hearing, E P Bharucha, senior counsel for the BMC candidly admitted, “We learnt by trial and error... we did not foresee that on account of this policy, builders would construct so many floors as public parking.”
However, arguing for the petitioner, Virendra Tulzapurkar pointed out that he was entitled to gain the FSI benefits as per the former policy, and that he has already completed a substantial portion of construction on the project.
Upholding the petitioner’s contentions, the Bench of Justices D Y Chandrachud and R D Dhanuka said, “One thing is clear - what the petitioner did was not illegal when he began the work. He might have exploited a loophole, but it was not against the law.”The judges also held that the developer was entitled to protection as he had completed a significant portion of the project and spent a large amount of money on it.

went to visit the site yesterday after i spotted crane movement. good news is that both cranes were operational and looks like the site is being prepared for restart. the plastic on the concrete pumps had also been removed and a few workers were painting the concrete bars with black coating.

Retain instead

Sorry - heading should read "Retail Instead of Residences ?

Went to see the site again this morning and indeed it looks like the structure may not be a residential building after all but a retail project (see also renders in "sky thread". the floor do not seem to have the usual double or triple height entry hall, yet instead one can clearly see a "shops" lay out structures coming up. Or are these car parking bays for the public parking ? Any one for confirmation ? Perhaps residences on top then ? Any views or news ?

Aerial view from One IBC:

Quote:

The IB Sky Suites is using two of the Potains cranes, IB Sky Forest is using four Potains and IB Sky is using two Potains.

The cranes spend around 50 percent of their time handling steel reinforcement, 40 percent lifting the concrete formwork and 10 percent placing concrete by bucket. Loads range between two and 2.5 tonnes.

Hi Bayvee,

Have they sold out what ever apartments they opened for initial selling or completely sold out everything (I think in total they had about 250 apartments)??

I guess they might have opened only one tower for booking or only the lower floors first???

In any case the info is very interesting.... Hope they also start rapid construction....

I did nit see the floor details yet studied the apartments layout, all duplexes. Nowhere was there mention of either a single or a two towers being on the market. Perhaps indeed they just sold out one. Also saw they pushed for selling the gold city phase 1 last week for 4500 rs all in, today phase 2 was launched at 6500 so could be the same for forest.

Slightly off topic:

It looks like they are actively pursing clearances for Golf City additional phase approval --

Look at item -8:
