The Central Business District of New Bombay, consists of three interconnected nodes, with Waghavli Lake in the centre. The southernmost of these three nodes, Ulwe, has an area of 1580 hectares. On this land, the Development Plan envisages a population of about 350, 000 people, with an estimated work force of just over 140,000 persons. Our assignment involved three tasks of preparing the Master Plan, the urban design controls, and demonstration housing for 1000 families. The project seeks to address the crucial issues of Affordability and Equity, with crucial emphasis on mass transport, coherent urban form, and housing patterns which use space as a resource.
