The Renaissance Township is located in Bardhaman, 90 km north of Kolkata on the newly constructed Golden Quadrilateral linking Kolkata to Delhi. The 257 acre site lies outside the town of Bardhaman in a zone designated for the town expansion by the Bardhaman Development Authority. The site was being used as a paddy field and was approximately three feet below the level of the highway abutting it with a history of flooding in the rains. The program developed as a result of a series of discussions with the owner, Shrachi, and the BDA resulting in a mix of plotted and apartment residential, commercial, institutional and recreational uses.
