Phase 2 Commencement of Bhendi Bazaar Redevelopment Project
Saifee Burhani Upliftment Trust (SBUT) is the organization behind the Bhendi Bazaar Redevelopment Project, Mumbai’s largest urban renewal scheme. They aim to redevelop South Mumbai’s vibrant, but congested Bhendi Bazaar, into a modern living and work space for its residents laid within the cradle of a state-of-the art and eco-friendly infrastructure.
This ambitious redevelopment project comprising 16.5 acres of landform has approximately 250 existing buildings, 1250 shops and 3200 families. Out of this – in 2020, 610 families and 128 businesses were rehabilitated into two towers, ‘Al Sa’adah’ across one acre of land, replacing 13 unsafe buildings – thereby completing Phase 1 of the project.
After the long halt in operations over the COVID-19 lockdown, SBUT has now acquired the Commencement Certificate for Phase 2 of the project, and has begun construction for the same.
