Surat Cityscapes

It deserves it's own thread. It's one of our largest, cleanest and richest cities.

Quote:
Surat (Gujarati: સુરત, Hindi: सूरत) formerly known as Suryapur, is the commercial capital city of the Indian state of Gujarat and also Second largest commercial hub of western India after Mumbai. The city proper is the one of the most populous cities in the world. Surat is the administrative capital of Surat district and Surat Metropolitan Region. Surat is India's eighth largest metropolitan city. Surat is India's cleanest Mertropolitan Region.

The city is situated on the left bank of the Tapti River, 14 miles from its mouth. The Population of Surat with its twin city Navsari is above 6.2 million as of 2010. A moat divides the older parts of the city, with its narrow streets and handsome houses, and the newer suburbs. The city is largely recognized for its textile and diamond businesses. It is also known as the diamond capital of the world and the textile capital of India. 92% of the world's diamonds are cut and polished in Surat. Surat is also the Third cleanest city in India after Chandigarh and Mysore. Surat was once the largest city in India. It has one of the highest GDP growth rates in India at 11.5% as of 2008. Surat was the primary port of India during the Mughal period, a distinction it lost to Bombay during the British Raj.

Dragged up this post of yours from the other thread, taken from a further away, but looking in the same direction, along with the new pic, can see the genesis of this road!

Yesterday i was at adajan area and snapped some pics although i dont remember name of any residential buildings.

This area is basically LP savani road in Pal area and its development is great, just see the buildings, commercial complexes, wide & neat roads, etc are just so good still this area is counted for middle/upper middle-class while all the new buildings/commercial complex to me are somewhat better looking than even Vesu which is for upper middle/rich class people & its price of land too is somewhat similar or even higher than Vesu, maybe after the Cable stayed bridge which will connect this area, the perception of people changes.


Few low-rises by JT group.






Talwalkar's gym - opening shortly


Shivalik Western. Excuse for some of pic's quality.



Upcoming Imperial mall on Pal-Hazira road.

RCC road in making on Pal-Hazira road which connects Rander too. This will make this area even more better



Rajhans Multiplex - 3Screens with foodcourt, gamezome, restaurants, and Maruti Suzuki showroom at front. Although its exteriors isnt that great but this multiplex is quite good from inside be it its interiors or sound system or seating arrangement, but exteriors could have been a benchmark sort of as was with Rajhans theatre at Dumas which still looks best one. BTW this multiplex is 1st theatre in this area of Adajan-Rander.

View of Bahumali (highrise SMC admin building for Polis commissioner, collector, etc. from sardar bridge.

Dhiraj Sons - Departmental store. Its the oldest store of City and even after of some big players like Reliance, more, Big bazaar, etc. its sales are increasing only, they have around 5-6 branches in city and are known for customer satisfaction. Also it gave an experience of what a proper departmental store is, to Surat when not even a single proper departmental store was in whole of Gujarat not even in A'bad.

Dev Avenue - Ghod Dod road, i have posted its u/c pics before too.

Now Surya Prakash Residency at City light road.



Surya Enclave at City Light road.

Athwagate Flyover connecting Sardar bridge(City's 1st flyover), its above famous L&T circle.





Famous traffic island at Athwagate, developed by Shah Publicity.

I will post full pic of this island later.
When there was no airport, my cousins & uncles from other city(Ahmedabad in particular) used to tease me that this is the only airport and airlines Surat has, he used to call it as Shah Airlines, but unfortunately the situation is still not very different.
