The wide road in the center is supposed to be a feeder road that goes to the nearby ORR Expressway which is under construction

The (old) school of thought on Highrises!

Hyderabad Heights

There are no building regulations. No height limits either. But hi-tech Hyderabad has very few high-rises. But with rapid urbanisation, it's only a matter of time before the city will be dotted with skyscrapers, reasons V. Geetanath

Which is the highest building in the twin cities? Gruhakalpa, Babu Khan Estate, Al Kareem Centre, Mount Nasir Apartments... opinions vary among people familiar with the city's skyscape while those relatively new could still be scratching their heads and looking up.

Can't blame them because despite being the fifth most important city in the country and a fast growing one at that, Hyderabad cannot boast of many high-rises, forget about a skyscraper. Incidentally, there are no building regulations as such preventing from high-rises from coming up.

No restrictions: In fact, as per the Government orders (423) issued in 1998, there are no height restrictions subject to setbacks as per rules and clearances from the Fire Services and Airport Authority of India (AAI) and as per the stipulations of the multi-storied building regulations (MSBR). Only condition is that the plot size has to be 2,000 square metres and above.

More relaxations were provided in the same order stating that buildings with stilt (for exclusive parking use) and five floors of 18-metre height are excluded from the provisions of MSBR for 1,000 sq mts. Still, high-rises have been few. And there are good reasons for it.

"Currently, it is not cost-effective to go for high-rises. There is not much demand for commercial space on top floors and many such floors are lying vacant. We are a city in growth transition and it's only a matter of time before we see high-rises that have their own plus and minus points," says B. Purushottam Reddy, Chief City Planner, Municipal Corporation of Hyderabad. However, he hastens to point out that safety features have to be taken into account, including fortifying the fire services wing and strengthening of basic infrastructure like roads, sewerage, water and parking for multi-storied buildings to come up.

Agrees MCH Additional Commissioner, Traffic and Transportation, N.V.S. Reddy: "High capacity growth with proper infrastructure in place is anytime better than allowing the city to keep on spreading. Public utilities like water, sewerage and even transport will come under tremendous strain if there is too much geographical growth."

He points out that cities of South-East Asia have successfully adopted this model. "It does not mean we should have indiscriminate high-rises. They should have ample public spaces and proper parking facilities. We have to be prepared for increased urbanisation which is inevitable," he says.

Land constraints: Additional Commissioner, Planning and Projects, MCH, K. Dhanunjaya Reddy says that high-rises in radial cities like Hyderabad, New Delhi and Bangalore are very few because of the land available to spread around. Especially for Hyderabad, the presence of airport bang in the centre is a major deterrent as high rises come under the aircraft funnel.

"It's not easy to construct a skyscraper with construction costing 30 per cent more. Maintenance of such buildings is expensive and our parking norms need to be changed. High-rises for commercial use did not succeed thus far because of faulty planning. Multi-storied buildings will come up once land becomes scarce and they should be allowed near transport hubs only," reasons D.T. Vinod Kumar, Chairman, Andhra Pradesh Chapter, Indian Institute of Architects.
