New educational city to come up in Gandhinagar

To Be Set Up On The Lines Of Harvard, MIT

A new city , inspired by urban elements of famed US-based Harvard institutional zone and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) area is taking shape in the eastern side of the Sabarmati in Gandhinagar.

Dubbed `New Gandhinagar', the first institutional city of Gujarat is being planned off Gandhinagar to woo foreign universities to set up their campus extensions here, according to Gandhinagar Urban Development Authority (GUDA) authorities.

Spread over 19 sq km, `New Gandhinagar' city is being designed in such a way that all its green area, including water bodies, will be re tained first and street network and sectors laid around these natural contours.

The city extends from Palaj village in north to Valad in south Gandhinagar. The city extends 8.5 km in length, 4 km in width in the north and 1.5 km in width in south wrapping around the GIFT City -India's first International Financial Services Center -and the new IIT-Gn campus.It also shares border with the new Indian Institute of Public Health (IIPH) university campus nearby . A GUDA official said, “The micro-planning and land use in each sector in the new city is presently being designed for `plug and play' for foreign institutions.“

“The entire area would cover 1,900 hectares out of which 200 hectares are reserved for institutional campuses. The rest will have green spaces, water bodies and walkable street and bicycle networks. The new city will mirror existing Gandhinagar city only in its sectortype development pattern,“ the GUDA official added.

D Thara, Ahmedabad municipal commissioner who was involved in planning the institutional area, said, “While planning the city, we first studied the contours of the landscape, retained the water bodies and green spots and then the road networks were laid. This city has a dense network of roads making it walkable, bicycle friendly with adequate green cover.“

The new educational township planned in Gandhinagar on the eastern side of Sabarmati is being planned as an `open university' campus. Here campuses of different institutions will not be hemmed in within high walls but would actually have main roads crisscrossing through their area. This would be the firstof-its-kind university campus in the state.

The road networks would consist of a hierarchy of roads measuring 65 meters, 40 meters, 24 meters, 18 meters and 12 meters in width.

Major institutional campuses and residential zones will be planned along these networks, says Gandhinagar Urban Development Authority (GUDA).

Though the planning of the new city mirrors that of the old Gandhinagar city, each sector in the new township will be 750 meters in width and 850 meters in length.

The new plan's development is based on equitable FSI allotment. For this, the plots are rearranged into three zones. The government land or open space will be aggregated at the center of each sector. The plots that lie alongside the main road would be allotted higher FSI at a premium cost and land deductions will be higher than for plots that lie within the sector.

“The land use and the building heights will be specific to each sector. This will ensure cohesive development and built for m.The goal will be to balance the costs and benefits to all land owners falling within this development plan,“ said Ahmedabad municipal commissioner and former GUDA CEO, D Thara.

Owners with plots at the center of a sector will lose land to the government's common space. But such owners will be given proportionate plots in all the three zones of the sector.

Besides this, the green spaces and public parks would be spread over five hectares and more, along with a dense street network making the campus area accessible by shaded paths for walking.
