Another spot to chill in Mumbai. A location at the Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC) has been chosen by the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) for the construction of a public park with a clubhouse and helipads. In order to do this, it has allowed private parties to design, build, finance, operate, and transfer (DBFOT) the facility.
This indicates that the recreation area is probably not a free place for the general people to unwind and forget their troubles. The central business district’s G-Block will hold this theme-based park, which will also have two helipads, an open-air banquet lawn, and a clubhouse. The club will contain suites, a meeting room, an auditorium, a restaurant, a fitness area, and indoor game facilities, according to the blueprints.
Additionally, there will be sections for a swimming pool, lawn tennis, cricket, a football field, a basketball court, and a 400-meter running track. The MMRDA has thus far created parks on its own in two locations: E Block in BKC and Maharashtra Nature Park in Dharavi. An oil-to-retail conglomerate runs one within the commercial district, while another one is nearby. A cricket pitch is also accessible for sports; however, one must join a specific club. A representative of the MMRDA stated, “We plan to develop 24,774 square meters of land, including a hillock that has an area of 20,790 square meters for this public park.”
Currently, the MMRDA’s contractors are working on the metro infrastructure on portions of the area designated for the garden. Therefore, giving possession of the entire area immediately may not be viable, according to an MMRDA official.
