All You Need To Know About East Delhi Hub
If all goes as planned, India’s first transit-oriented development project will come up in the national capital by 2022. The foundation stone for the project has been laid by Union Home Minister Amit Shah on December 26, 2019 at Delhi’s Karkardooma for a state-of-the-art infrastructure zone which will also include the city’s tallest tower. Known as the East Delhi Hub, the project will be spread over a 30-hectare area.
This upcoming project will be developed around the existing two Delhi Metro routes, the Blue Line and the Pink Line. With a 10-acre landscaped green area planned, the 48-storey tower will come up in phase-I of the project, where 70 per cent area would be meant for residential purposes while 20 per cent space would be for commercial purposes. The remaining area would be reserved for civic amenities and EWS housing.
The land is owned by the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) which has chosen National Buildings Construction Corporation (NBCC) for implementing the project's first phase. According to an estimate provided by the NBCC, 4,526 residential units would be built, out of which 1,108 will be built in phase-I.
According to the plan, huge skywalks, central plaza and vertical gardens have been planned to provide residents with quality standard of living. At present, east Delhi is considered one of the most polluted and congested parts of Delhi with greenery level almost nil.
The project was approved by the DDA in 2014 and was awarded to the NBCC for Rs 1,393 crore. The scope of work includes master planning of the entire project and construction of residential units, external amenities, infrastructure services and other developmental works.
