a. Concept & Strategies for Development & Management of One of Six New Cities along the Nagpur-Mumbai Super Communication Expressway, Maharashtra, India  (2019 - ongoing)

Maharashtra is one of India’s largest states by area and population (Pop: 120 million). Its capital city, Mumbai, is India’s largest metropolis (Pop: 22 million).

Nagpur is the second capital of Maharashtra and the largest city in central India.

The Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) is presently implementing the 700 km eight lane Nagpur–Mumbai Super Communication Expressway at a cost of USD 7.8 billion. Designed for speeds up to 150 km / hr, the expressway will reduce travel time between the two cities to about 8 hours.

Nagpur-Mumbai Super Communication Expressway, IndiaAlmondz Global Infra - Consultant Limited in JV with BPDC was engaged by MSRDC in February 2019 to undertake planning for one of six proposed new cities along the route of the Nagpur-Mumbai Super Communication Expressway. Almondz Global Infra - Consultant is a wholly owned subsidiary of Almondz Global Securities Limited, one of India’s leading Investment Banks.

In October 2019, BPDC with Almondz produced a comprehensive Concept and Strategies report for one Agro Prosperity Centre covering more than 1,000 ha, which addresses the city’s "reason for being" and contains innovative strategic concepts to be considered by MSRDC, as well as a formative physical development plan.

Further phases of the consultancy will involve preparation of a Development Plan and Development Control Regulations, for which BPDC will have a Review role.

Xrbia’s vision is to build “100 future ready cities by 2030”

Avsare and Borivali are each situated in steeply undulating terrain, which creates development challenges, as well as opportunities for innovative villa designs and variety in urban form. The Master Plans have evolved to embrace variations in topography, including aesthetic and recreational opportunities for valley lakes and feature water bodies.

The Master Plans incorporate a variety of affordable villa sizes and configurations within a scenic undulating landscape, as well as high rise apartments strategically located for views and proximity to community amenities including convenience shopping, Resident Club facilities and open space.

A stream valley running the length of the property facilitates a unifying landscaped open space and walking trail corridor.

The Borivali Master Plan covering almost 200 acres, incorporates a 100 key Spa and Wellness Resort and a range of indoor and outdoor recreational facilities including a cricket and football ground. A wide spine road winds its way up and down for 2.7 kilometres between securitised entrances at the western and eastern ends of the Estate.
