The 18 acre Bhendi Bazaar redevelopment project involves moving 25,000 people from 250+ old buildings into apartment towers.

The project is being developed by the Saifee Burhani Upliftment Trust which has the backing of Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin - the Dawoodi Bohra community's head. All the mosques in the area will be left untouched.

Thanks to Swapbeck for finding the website and posting it in the Mumbai update forum

Draft introduction added, pictures of demolition and transit camps will be coming soon once i visit the site this weekend.Note that the building and high rise details mentioned in the thread title are not confirmed. Read it somewhere so just included. These details needs to be dug out.

Across the canvas of much-loved Bhendi Bazaar is about to be sketched a grand Vision - The Saifee Burhani Upliftment Project (SBUP).

Bhendi Bazaar was first settled in the 19th century, but little has been done since then to bring it into the fold of the city’s modern needs. This path-breaking project will create an urban living space with the most modern infrastructure and amenities in this 100-year-old area. It will not just build better homes and roads but create a milieu that supports human development to its fullest potential - social, physical, mental, spiritual and economic.

Yet, it will also preserve the religious, cultural and social spirit that has defined this vibrant locality for years. As a fusion of new technologies and the incomparable flavour of the area, it will stand as a unique architectural feat.

Above all, the project stands out for its intent – a non-profit initiative created to upgrade the environs of Bhendi Bazaar so that its residents can hope to have a better life; and the business that flourish in the area continue to do so within a state-of-the art infrastructure.

The redevelopment will cover 16.5 acres comprising 3200 homes in 250 existing buildings; 1250 businesses and will impact the lives of 20,000 people

From an old TOI article:
  • 18 acres, 270 buildings, 4,000 homes, 2,000 commercial establishments and 25,000 people.
  • 80% of the project involves rehousing the existing tenants free of cost in brand new buildings.
  • The other 20% will include four residential skyscrapers to be sold at the market rate to recover the project costs.
  • Each rehab building will have one floor dedicated to services, provision for recreational facilities and .
  • Two basements for parking.
  • Almost 50% of the area will be reserved for open spaces and green areas

The project has many of the important clearances including the approval of 90% of the tenants.

BHENDI BAZAAR | Saifee Burhani Upliftment Project | 40 fl x 16 + more | APP

Bhendi Bazaar revamp gets push

More than a year after the Rs2,000-crore Bhendi Bazaar cluster redevelopment project got in-principle approval from the municipal corporation, the wheels have been set in motion.

Chief minister Prithviraj Chavan has given 1,650 of the state housing board’s transit tenements at Mazagaon to the Saifee Burhani Upliftment Trust to rehabilitate the project-affected people for a period of three years.

This is the first time that such a huge number of transit tenements have been given by the state government.

“The state government’s decision will surely boost the Bhendi Bazaar redevelopment project. It would have been major task for the Trust to rehabilitate the 3,500 families of the 281 dilapidated buildings in the area. There are also 1,500 shops and offices in the area spread over 18 acres,” said Satish Gavai, vice-president and chief executive officer, Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (Mhada).

The transit tenements are on the same premises as the mill workers’ housing project. Mhada will charge Rs6,000 per tenement from the Trust as rent. In addition, the tenant will have to bear the maintenance and civic amenities to the authority concerned. Mhada has constructed nearly 6,700 tenements for mill workers and 3,200 for transit accommodations.

The project involves demolition and reconstruction of cessed and dilapidated buildings in Bhendi Bazaar to be undertaken by the Saifee Burhani Trust. The project was initiated by Dr Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin, head of the Dawoodi Bohra community, and it will be implemented by the Trust on a no-profit, no-loss basis. Almost 80% of the residents are Dawoodi Bohras, a million-strong tightly-knit community, who live in 150 sqft tenements.

The trust plans to rehabilitate the 3,500 families in 350-sq-ft flats and revamp the entire area to include wider roads and open spaces. Existing religious structures will be retained and the township’s centre piece will be the Raudat Tahera, tomb of the previous Syedna — the present leader’s father.

Solar-powered lights, buildings designed to cut air-conditioning costs and water recycling plants are a few of the green practices to be used in the project.

The BMC is yet to give approval to this project. I wonder what is taking so long? Is it a clash between state and the city officials?

Bhendi Bazaar’s much-awaited makeover begins
2 bldgs demolished as part of cluster redevelopment


The Bhendi Bazaar redevelopment project -- one of Mumbai's most ambitious attempts to reconfigure a crowded residential-commercial area to provide for better housing, improved business environment, wider roads and ample open spaces -- kicked off on Monday with demolition beginning on two buildings.
The project, the brainchild of the Saifee Burhani Upliftment Trust (SBUT), aims to move 3,500 families into 350-sqft apartments from their current smaller, dilapidated flats; create modern, betterequipped spaces for 1,200 businesses; and free up nearly one-sixth of Bhendi Bazaar's 16.5 acre sprawl for open, recreational areas.
The Rs 2,900-crore project, launched in 2009, could provide a blueprint for cluster redevelopment across the city and provide an ideal for how high-rises must not only aim at accommodating more and more people, but also help create more space on the ground.
The Bhendi Bazaar redevelopment will involve demolition of 249 four-to-six storied buildings and will impact the lives of close to 20 000 people. Care will be taken to retain existing religious structures and the township's centre piece will be the Raudat Tahera, the tomb of the previous Syedna, the current Bohra community leader Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin's father.
While Bhendi Bazaar today is just a maze of concrete, once the project is completed it will have over 700-odd trees, congestion-free roads and the city's longest shopping corridor.
Of the 249 buildings that would be demolished under the redevelopment plan, SBUT has already acquired 200. These will be replaced with a yet-unspecified number of towers, each averaging 40 stories. Sixteen such buildings will be sold in the open market to recover the project costs.
Demolition work on the first two structures of the cluster, Mohammedi building and Ebrahim Nuruddin Chawl, began early on Monday morning. Nearly a dozen odd buildings have already been vacated and close to 400 residents have moved to a transit camp at Mazgaon.
The work on the redevelopment project was stalled for nearly three years as SBUT struggled to secure clearances from the BMC, MHADA and other state agencies and faced stiff resistance from residents not willing to leave their dwellings of years and move to a transit camp.
Things started moving a few months back when SBUT managed to get three major buildings vacated. The project has picked up pace since.
Abbas Master, CEO, SBUT, said the redevelopment project has been divided into eight clusters. "Work has begun on the first phase that includes 12 buildings. All the families from these buildings have been relocated to transit camps, which we prefer to call training camps," he said.
Master explained that work on other seven clusters will not wait for the completion of the first phase. "Work will start parallely. It all depends on clearances, over which we have little control. But I must add that all the concerned agencies have been very cooperative," he said.
In the next six to eight months, Master is optimistic construction work on new buildings will also begin.
Built to decongest the Fort area in 1803, Bhendi Bazaar today is one of the most densely populated areas of south Mumbai. Nearly 70 per cent of the residents here are Bohri Muslims, a closely-knit business community.
The demolition of the first set of buildings has also put an end to skepticism among the residents about the project ever taking off. "The project has finally taken off and it is certainly a positive sign. When the project was announced in 2009, we were told it would be completed in three years. It's already three years and the first building is being demolished now. We hope it does not take a decade to complete," said a resident requesting anonymity.

But how do you know the demolition work is going on and the rehab buildings are also up. Have you actually seen the work of the demolition of the slums and the rehab buildings.
