How about travelling to a railway station in the country that has been designed by the maker of The Imperial Towers in Mumbai? Known for his architectural excellence across residential, commercial and government projects, renowned architect Hafeez Contractor has offered to design 19 railway stations across the country for free, including several in Mumbai.

Among the 19 stations Contractor has offered to redesign are Dadar, Parel, Wadala, Bandra and Khar in Mumbai.

 The project

 The Indian Railway Stations Development Corporation Limited (IRSDC) is working on a redevelopment project under which 600 stations will be revamped.

According to the IRSDC, once the stations are redeveloped, the railways will remain in the business of running trains while the maintenance and management of these stations will be handed over to private players.

At present, under the redevelopment plan, the railways allocates operation and maintenance of stations to the developers, including toilets on platforms, vendors, food stalls, parking and waiting rooms.

Contractor is known worldwide for some of his iconic architectural designs. Want to live in one of the marvels designed by him? Here are five housing projects that you could invest in:
