Name of Project
BKC Art Plaza on land bearing CTS No. 629(pt.) of Village, Bandra East, Near Nanda deep Garden, Mumbai, Maharashtra 400051.
➢ Proposed Development of BKC Art Plaza on land bearing CTS No. 629(pt.) of Village, Bandra East, Near Nanda deep Garden, Mumbai, Maharashtra 400051.
➢ The MMRDA intends to develop an Arts Events Plaza next to the Vacant land parcel in BKC Near Nanda deep Garden, at Kalanagar Junction, Bandra.
➢ According to the MMRDA’s larger BKC Art District Master plan, the proposed plaza has the potential to become a key attraction in the city. The vision for its design is to integrate the physical urban public realm with the cultural fabric of the city.
➢ The plaza can serve as a meeting/ congregation point, recreational zone, and waiting zone, which is well equipped with all facilities and infrastructure.
➢ With the plan of BKC art district and BKC art festival, this plaza will serve as a major venue to host artists, stalls and exhibitions during the festival.
➢ The plaza is designed with an amphitheater that can accommodate 100 persons on stepped seating. The amphitheater is designed to facilitate viewing of events from all across the plaza and even Nandadeep Garden.
➢ A fragrant garden is planned on the southern edge of the site towards Mithi River to mitigate the odors that arise from the river due to pollution and debris dumping.
➢ Mobile food trucks that act as an anchor for the plaza will be placed on the north-western edge of the land parcel.
The proposed BKC Art Plaza is a beautification of the land which will be beneficial for the residents of the surrounding area. The various benefits of the proposed project are as given below.
➢ Well-designed plan assuring the safety and security of the pedestrians with well-equipped CCTV.
➢ The project does not disrupt or displace any flora and fauna.
➢ The plans have ensured that the work carried out here in this plot of land is in the regulation of the laws and rules of the area and government.
➢ The site is accessible by Bandra railway station which is at a walking distance of 850 mts. Metro line 2B, once completed, will pass over the site. Moreover, the upcoming BKC station on Line 3 will also be in close proximity.
➢ This recreational ground will provide fresh and green exposure for the people of the area with sufficient flowering plants and trees that are proposed in the plan which will give an addition of color and beauty to the area and inculcate an appreciation for nature. The trees being planted are also of native species, thus not interfering with the vegetative ecosystem of the area.
➢ To improve the greenery of the surroundings, the recreational ground will be an aesthetically pleasing sight to the neighboring residents and a visually pleasing spectacle to the people passing by in cars from Dharavi Creek Bridge, Sion – Bandra Link Road, and Western Express Highway.
