GVK SkyCity | 200 acres | Approved

^ They've got some sort of temporary website/domain with renders and some details. You guys might want to turn off the audio while browsing:

http://win-ms.lkdigi.com/gvkskycity/

The masterplan was designed by HOK architects





Quote:
The pace of progress spreads its net far and wide with the widening of existing roads and creation of brand new arterial roadways in and around the city-side. To leverage the construction of the proposed Underground Metro Rail, important stations within GVK SkyCity have been earmarked and shall provide easy connectivity between the city, the airport and Mumbai. In addition to this, time-saving facilities such as the underground parking below the common areas, open and multi-level parking are within easy reach across the city.


This looks like where the SEAR meets the WEH (foreground)


at-grade eastbound section of the SEAR from the WEH:


Area around T1






Hotel + Comm space at T2:




underneath the SEAR











The skycity development includes all the areas shown in brown:

Another thing, just go to that website and see the whole gallery and then tell me when will the whole project be completed including the small trivial things like the chhatrapati shivaji statue and the landscaping in the vicinity and the rest of the building and landscaping.

The renders are freaking awesome..but I have a doubt...to make so many buildings, GVK will have to own or lease the land...and I don't think the land belongs to them...Who will construct those commercial buildings, malls then..?

All of the dark/light brown areas belong to AAI, which is a stake holder in MIAL along with GVK.
That grand entrance to SEAR from the WEH has a colony to its left which must be relocated in order to construct those swanky buildings. Ownership is not an issue, rehabilitation of current users/ encroachers is..

Im still confused, though, by the images as to where the cargo terminal will be shifted to.. and whether the AI/IC colonies in kalina will be moved too? any answers?

Shifting of AI colonies is a tricky issue,rehabilitation of it is a long process,the above pics is.only for representational purposes.
Crago terminal wil be shifted to current domestic terminal but it wil require a small amount of space rest GVK can lease out. The airport hotel u/c at domestic terminal is part of the plan

I think AAI will grant this land to MIAL on license basis and MIAL will further sub-license the land to pvt. developers (in case it is not building these developments itself). Same happened with DIAL Aerocity too.

A whole new Mumbai, near airport

Source: http://www.dnaindia.com/mumbai/18628...i-near-airport

Quote:
After a delay of over three years, Mumbai International Airport Limited (MIAL) has started the first stage of development on 200 acres of land around the airport in Sahar by inviting Request for Qualification (RFQ) from private developers to build hotels and other hospitality projects in the first phase. The project will be India’s first 24x7 business and leisure hub, claims airport operator GVK.

Christened as GVK Skycity, MIAL says the hotels, convention centres, retail entertainment centres including theme parks, shopping malls, commercial spaces will be developed on the lines of Bangkok airport, over a period of 8-10 years. Once complete, the project will change the skyline of the suburbs. It will also turn the area near the airport into a hub not only for air passengers, business executives but also for the local residents. The project has been designed by Hong Kong based architectural firm HOK.

“The land parcel for which the RFQ has been issued is vacant and in the possession of MIAL” says a MIAL spokesperson. Another MIAL official said that Skycity is being built in such a manner that an international passenger who comes there would have the urge to stay there as along as he could.

According to reliable airport sources, Maharashtra Urban Development gave its final nod to the proposal a few months ago and then the RFQ was issued. The delay happened because it took time to remove existing structures from the land parcel.

MIAL is already in litigation with HDIL after it terminated its contract with it for failing to shift and rehabilitate slum dwellers from around the airport within the stipulated time.

Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (CSIA) which is among the busiest airports in Asia will cater to 40 million passengers every year.
