Delhi Civic Body Plans to Build Commercial Hub in Azadpur
The Delhi Municipal Corporation has planned to build a commercial hub in North Delhi. The civic body has finalized a blueprint for three million sq ft of a commercial and residential complex in Azadpur involving Rs 2,900 crore.
The plan has been created by Design Forum International (DFI), a consultancy firm for architecture, urbanism and design and that WAPCOS, a government agency, has been selected as a consultant to these projects along with DFI.
The project that has been languishing for almost three years has now been altered as per the approved Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) policy. The development is part of North Delhi Municipal Corporation’s roadmap to redevelop the existing colony and convert a 23-acre area into a residential and commercial hub.
North MCD had awarded the work in October 2018, but the project has been delayed due to Covid-19 disruptions. WAPCOS is awaiting final approval from MCD and will begin construction as quickly as possible.
Of the total three million sq ft, 5.5 lakh sq ft will be commercial where retail and office space will be built to promote the walk-to-work culture. The redevelopment will also offer 2,000 residential units—of 2BHK and 4BHK configuration—spread across 18 residential towers.
