Townland’s Master Plan for Redevelopment of Mumbai’s Port Complex

townland as Master Planner

Townland Consultants was shortlisted as one of 3 finalists in the International Design Competition for the Detailed Master Planning of the soon to be redeveloped Mumbai Port Waterfront District. As a central Master Plan Theme for the redevelopment of the Mumbai Port Area, Townland selected “The Connected City”. Mumbai should be better connected spatially, socio-economically and virtually in order to become the World class City it wants to be. The opportunity to redevelop the entire Mumbai Port Complex and to open up the city to its harbor front will change the identity of the entire city and its potential impact for Mumbai’s residents could not be underestimated.

 

Townland’s Master Plan Vision revolved around the concept of creating a large variation in waterfront identities, both for the built environment as the public open spaces, catering to people from all socio-economic strata. Townland has suggested that with the unique opportunity to Master Plan such a large scale and prominent part of the central city a detailed Building Height Plan would be an appropriate tool to create a coherent Urban Design. By allowing only spatially appropriate building densities and building heights based on land use, location, transit accessibility, open space and vista corridors, a truly Transit Oriented Development (TOD) and Pedestrian Friendly Environment can be achieved.
