Global City, a 1,000-Acre Project to be Launched in Q1 of ’22 in Gurgaon: Chautala
Dushyant Chautala, the Deputy Chief Minister of Haryana announced that the government has decided to introduce a Global City project in Gurgaon. The project will be based “on the model of Dubai’s Business Bay” and is going to be constructed over 1,000 acres.
Chautala informed The Indian Express that they are planning to start the tendering process in the subsequent month. “The map has been prepared for the Global City and we plan to launch it by the first quarter of 2022. The Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation Ltd (HSIIDC) will develop the infrastructure and auction the big plots. We plan to develop the area in a phased manner; initially, we intend to develop a chunk of 50 or 100 acres of land only. On the model of Dubai’s Business Bay, it will have shopping malls, commercial and residential buildings. For construction purposes, 3.5 FAR (floor area ratio) will be permitted.”
Chautala further added that the Global City will have walking, cycling and service lanes: “It will have non-stop lanes too where vehicle crossing will take place via underground lanes only. There will be space for civic amenities at underground spaces like in Delhi’s Connaught Place.”
According to Dushyant Chautala, the Global City is going to have the biggest heli-hub, which will be sprawled across 25 acres of land. “It will be much bigger than a helipad,” he added.
According to the officials, the Global City is part of Sector-36-37 Gurgaon and is placed at the junction of Dwarka Expressway and Pataudi road. “The site has been chosen for high-end development. Mainly, only green industries will be permitted here like manufacturing of items related to electronics, bio-technology, and information technology. Chautala has instructed officials to initiate the tendering process early so that the project takes off soon.” A source said.
As per the officials, the 1,000 acres of land which is allotted for the Global City project is a part of 1,383 acres of land which Reliance has given back to the Haryana government in 2014.
The Haryana government is planning to develop a commercial city in an area of 130 acres of land near the Global City, Chautala added. “The commercial city will have four dedicated towers. For example, one may be for gifts only, another for furniture items, and third may be for residential utilization items. The idea is simple: residents get everything from one building.”
The Haryana government is also planning to invite expressions of interest (EOI) from global firms for developing a theme park over 200 acres of land in Manesar. Earlier, the government was planning to setup a racecourse and stadiums, but it had not received a warm response as expected.
