WHAT THE F**K???

BMC notice to six under-construction towers

The BMC has issued notices to six major under-construction residential towers in Mumbai asking them to toe the line in keeping with the state government’s revised rules for projects built under the parking FSI policy.


Over the past two months, notices have been issued to the realty majors asking them to reduce the size of their projects. These include Orchid Crown-DB Realty’s three proposed 50-storey highrises in Prabhadevi, Indiabulls’ over 60-storey residential highrises Indiabulls Sky Forest at Jupiter Mills and Sky Suites at Elphinstone Mills, and the proposed 117-storey World One Tower by Lodha at Shrinivas Mills, all three in Lower Parel.

Notices were also issued to the yet-to-be launched Kohinoor Square at Kohinoor Mills in Dadar and Palais Royale at Shreeram Mills in Worli. In the last two cases, construction of the parking lot has already been carried out until the seventh and 11th floor respectively. Spokespersons for both companies said they procured stay orders from the court against the BMC notice on the grounds that they had already constructed a substantial portion of the public parking lot.

The six projects are among the 11 that were issued commencement certificate (CC) under the parking FSI policy. The policy allowed developers to construct public parking as high as 10-20 storeys on their plot and hand it over to BMC.

In return, they could avail a proportionate amount of additional FSI (ratio of built-up area to plot area) in their projects, allowing them to construct 50 to 60-storey towers. Following criticism about the policy implementation benefiting developers at the cost of straining the infrastructure mainly in the Lower Parel-Dadar belt, CM Prithviraj Chavan cancelled all public car park projects. However, 11 projects that had received a CC during former CM Ashok Chavan’s tenure were allowed to go ahead

BMC officials said of the 11 projects, five agreed to limit their car park to four floors and pay a premium as per new rules.

Additional Municipal Commissioner Aseem Gupta confirmed that the BMC has issued notices to the remaining developers under Section 51 of the MRTP Act, asking them to justify why the BMC should not revoke their CC unless they modified their plans in keeping with the revised rules.

Last week, Gupta started the process of hearing the developers on a case-to-case basis. “The changes in the rule are rational and should be made applicable in as many cases as possible though we do recognise the rights of projects that are in different stages,” he said, adding that the matter is sub judice before the BMC as well as the court.

DB Realty spokesperson said their project has received all the necessary permissions and the company is in the process of responding to the show-cause notice. He added, “DB Realty is committed to complying with all rules laid down by the government and its agencies from time to time.” Lodha and Indiabulls did not comment.

Relax. The author has gotten it wrong. World One is not being constructed using the parking lot FSI incentive policy.

That's a relief.

As to the other projects - when a project has crossed a certain threshold of construction, especially, design-bounded projects like Kohinoor square, how can a project suddenly "adhere to changed FSI norms" after the first few floors have breached the ground level? wont that mean the design itself gets nullified as the structure would have to horizontally splice the top floors off thus negating the entire design in the first place?

+1 to nishanth. Public Parking structures will help reduce the congestion and add parking spaces in dense areas. Why is this a strain in the infrastructure????? Which idiots are sitting in mumbai BMC?? .. check out china, malaysia, singapore, taiwan, hong kong... does BMC think that bombay is the only crowded city with this problem???? junkheads

Arre the parking policy was created with noble intentions. But the builders never built those parking structures. Infact with extra FSI they received they converted even those supposebly parking structures into apartments and sold it. But as IU said world one is not build according to that policy so it wont affect them. Mainly its Indiabulls U/C buildings which are the culprit.They didnt even leave aside space for public gardens which was part of the policy

Says who?

Quote from this article:
Incidentally,Lodha said they are not using the incentive parking FSI to construct the 117-storey World One and 70-plus storey World Crest
I'm in touch with a real estate reporter in Mumbai and she just confirmed it via chat as well.

Great find Deekshith :cheers1: It's worth posting the associated news as well:

First jump in India

Grocon's international business celebrated the start of the New Year by achieving a first jump in India for our client Lodha on the internationally acclaimed World One. The 117 level ultra-luxury apartment tower is the remarkable centrepiece for the prestigious Lodha Place development in central Mumbai. Grocon is also providing a fully integrated formwork solution for World Crest - the second tower on the development - along with construction advisory services, especially around safety and efficiency. These are the first of what is expected to be a pipeline of prestigious assignments in India.
Fairly obvious but now that the core has made its first jump, the tower should start rising pretty fast.
