The Mumbai Esplanade is a people's space for each one of us that accesses the city centre; it will become the space for Mumbaikars and visitors alike to enjoy, to rejuvenate and engage the city. Above all, it is a safe and convenient environment for the lacs of pedestrians in the city centre; especially connecting commuters alighting at Churchgate and Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus. Mumbai has invested massive amounts on vehicular improvements, often at the cost of pedestrian movement; there haven't been concerted efforts to improve civic infrastructure for Aam Mumbaikars who use public transport and walk to traverse the city. The Mumbai
Esplanade's primary function is for pedestrians and commuters. As an additional benefit though, traffic moves smoother and faster as many traffic lights are eliminated and there are no conflicts with jaywalkers crossing streets. A large amicable open space, the proposed Mumbai Esplanade is intended for the Aam Mumbaikar; train commuters will gain from the convenience and safety that will allow them to leisurely walk to work from stations. The Mumbai Esplanade serves the office worker, Fort businessmen, local residents, students, sports-persons practicing at the Oval, tourists visiting Mumbai, and pedestrians that access the city centre. The space calls out to all its citizens to explore, to celebrate, to relax, to stroll or to dine. With multiple uses including open cafes, parks and fountains, the Mumbai Esplanade will cater to an array of services that Mumbaikars crave. The space will host cultural activities, concerts, festivals or celebrations; without traffic disruptions or encroaching on sports fields. With the Wankhede and Brabourne Stadiums located nearby, the Mumbai Esplanade becomes the natural space for Mumbai\'s sports fans to celebrate city and international cricket wins. The plaza is a blank slate which Mumbaikars fill with their celebrations and aspirations.
