It is surrounded by mangroves on two sides and this setting provides ample views which are optimized in the design proposal. Also, Mumbai experiences torrential rain which hampers even basic municipal services, directly affecting the way of life. The site was analyzed for high flood levels in the area, especially since it was close to the river bed, to negate the effects of flooding. Design to optimize panoramic views: Facilities provided include five office blocks, a mall cum multiplex/entertainment and a drive in theatre. Originally the site used to be a drive-in theatre and hence, that function had to be maintained as a part of the design brief. With the unusual advantage of panoramic views, Hotels, Serviced Apartments, Club and Condominiums were included in the program. The functional zoning of the design scheme is based on the relationship between the office, mall and hotel, with the hotel being central to both. Proximity to the mall adds to the experience of both the office and hotel goers and makes for a well integrated mixed use scheme.
