Location: Bombay, Maharashtra, India

Project Work Status: Planning Phase Projects

The conceptualisation, along with colleagues Shirish Patel and Pravina Desai, of a new strategy for restructuring the city of Bombay by opening up the mainland directly across the harbour - in an area where many key location decisions had already been taken regarding the provision of new docks, a major industrial belt, the highway system to the rest of the state, and so forth. In 1970, after the idea had gathered sufficient support, the State Government accepted the plan, notifiedv the 22000 hectares for acquisition and setup CIDCO (the city and industrial development corporation) to design and develop the new urban centres, to be called New Bombay.
