A mega techno-residential township
Tuesday, June 13, 2006

The Lanco Group has sewn up plans for a mega techno-residential township of 18 million sq ft that would come up in a 100-acre site near here with an investment outlay of about Rs 3,600 crore.

The company is planning a 90-storey building, which could potentially be the tallest such structure in the country. Since this comes in a special zone, clearances would be formality, the company said....... Apart from developing 16 residential towers each of about 30 levels, this project will host a mega mall complex and two hotels - a five-star and a four-star one.

The Lanco group Chairman, Mr L. Madhusudhan Rao, told that the magnitude of the project was such that this will effectively create a larger capacity than the existing Hitec City area near here, where a majority of the IT companies have set up shop. The project, to be taken up through a strategic partner, would be completed within three years.

"We plan to unveil the project in August, and a leading Mumbai-based designer has been roped in for its design. The company expects to tap into other metros following up on their capability to handle infrastructure projects," Mr Rao said. Giving an overview of the mega office-cum-township project named Lanco Hills, Mr Rao said that this would be a mixed development project that will have a built-up space of about 18 million sq ft, featuring top-notch office space, residential facilities and large recreation zones.

With regards to the office space, the company is planning 12 towers each of up to 20 levels that would be custom designed for IT and IT-enabled services (ITES) companies and this would form part of the Knowledge Corridor that the State Government is in the process of developing, he said. Apart from developing 16 residential towers each of about 30 levels, this project will host a mega mall complex and two hotels - a five-star and a four-star one. The mall will have a built up space of about two million sq ft, with multi-level parking space.

In all, the township will have 7.5-million sq ft. of office space and 8 million sq ft of housing facility in addition to the mall and hotel complexes.

Update on 60-storey twin towers project

Meanwhile...

Hyderabad is planning a huge new CBD that will include skysrcapers. Go Hyd!

State to get its own twin towers soon
K V Ramana
[ Wednesday, June 07, 2006 01:46:01 amTIMES NEWS NETWORK ]

HYDERABAD: Kuala Lumpur has its Petronas Tower and Chicago its Sears. Now, the government intends to put Andhra Pradesh on the world's skyscraper map.

Plans are afoot to build two 60-floor towers at Manchirevula in Rajendranagar mandal on about 100 acres, which is expected to house corporates.

Though much shorter than the world's tallest buildings — Taiwan's Taipei 101 (101 floors, 1,670 ft), Petronas Tower (88 floors, 1,483 ft) and Sears Tower (110 floors, 1,450 ft — the proposed twin buildings with 60 floors would be the tallest in the state.

Over 20 companies have responded to Andhra Pradesh Industrial and Investment Corporation's (APIIC) tender calling for bids. Most of the bidders are real estate and construction majors with global exposure and includes the Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group and Emaar.

"Both these companies are participating jointly with their partners," an official source said. The twin-tower project is part of the government's broader plan to develop the surroundings of the upcoming international Shamshabad airport with facilities to suit the requirements of corporate houses.

The focus is to project Hyderabad as a hi-tech city on the move. "We need to focus on building structures in the vicinity of airport because of the spin-off effects. The international airport is expected to bring in millions of foreign tourists and visitors and we want everyone of them to see the skyscrapers," a high-level source said.

Apart from the multi-storied structure, the 100-acre campus would also have facilities for recreation and shopping. "It's going to be a business district and all other existing structures like the Hi-Tec City would fade away once it comes up," he said.

90 story tower looks awesome. i think india should push up its high rises to 90+ story. 60 is still good considering the size of the current towers but i think they should go super tall.

The project Renderings looks really cool.But do anyone think this is feasible?.
I know the Hyderabad Authorities are very aspirational,but as far as a city is considered,every growth should be gradual.Just think of Bangalore.No highrises more than 20 floors and not anything to this scale.But see the stress on infrastructure.

First Hyderabad should have towers up to 20 floors and should see the stress it causes on the infrastructure,then may be they can go beyond 30 and 40,and I personally dont see any 90 floor buildings coming up atleast in next 5-6 years.

Newly developed areas of Hyderabad are traffic free because they are well spread out.The authorities should not make the same mistake again.18 million sqft is unbelievable.I Dont think it is possible or atleast not acceptable with the present infrastructure.Even if it has a commercial area + office space of 10 million square feet,around 70000 to 80000 people will be working there or visiting there,and you can think about the stress it causes on the infrastructure.

It is just my personal opinion.I may be wrong.

They're probably going to handle the infra issue by using highly efficient water systems etc. at the site of construction (not announced but probably somewhere near the ORR).

Road access? They're probably gonna build it near the ORR, and hopefully the complex will have signal-free access to the ORR. This thing DEFINETLY needs and MRTS linkup, so being located next to a rail line is paramount here (or they can extend the proposed Hyderabad Metro to it).

Sewage handling? Water? It looks like they'll have to use greywater for things like faucets, and the toilets will have to be vaccum toilets like the ones on the Space Shuttle, to conserve water and reduce the need to pump it up there dramatically.

Power? This one's a biggie, but I'm sure they can build some sort of on-site generation thing. A large solar field will HAVE to be built next to this, among other things.

And this sounds a lot like a self-contained township, so it's going to be mainly interrnal movements. But the pedestrian-friendly (they claim) design may reduce the need for motor vehicles to travel through the area.

It is perfectly feasable, it just needs a number of out-of-the-box solutions to some very real problems. And besides, it's not like they're building it in Dilshuknagar or anything.

Would like to know the exact location of this project. I would presume it is significantly away from the city center, close to the ORR.

^^^ That means it will probably right next to the ORR - Nanakramguda junction. Lanco group bought 100 acres there for 4.5 crore/acre a year ago.

Power may not be a big issue, coz LANCO is in the business of Power generation. That is their bread n butter.

Its still in the planning stages so anything can happen! Not to be a kill joy or anything lets wait until the foundation stone is laid then i would beleive it.

Very impresssive though! I always thought that AP was a very forward looking state. I think we have to thank Mr Naidu (former CM) of AP who kicked of all this urban revival in AP and other cities and states being inspired from it.

Hyderabad could take the lime light out of other cities of India but with so much development in all cities it would be a tough act to follow. 90 storey tower??? Hummm thats ambitious.

Wow, the designs look quite modern- a step in the right direction.

I just hope they don't cut the 90 storey tower into something like three 30-storey buildings.

By the description on the location, it looks like it is going to be near ISB and golf course. Most likely in Gacchibowli area.

Skyscraper zone is along the ORR.
