Mumbai's skyline is set to get a major facelift with the redevelopment of the Motilal Nagar Colony, nestled in Goregoan (West). The state cabinet on Wednesday approved the renovation proposal and issued a 'special project status' to develop the area into a micro-city.

The project will be moved by the state's nodal housing agency, MHADA, read reports.

A structured layout plan will revamp Motilal Nagar in Goregoan

Motilal Nagar 1, 2 and 3 were established in 1960 and presently stand as one of the oldest residential colonies in Mumbai's western suburbs. Spread over 50 hectares of land, this place was developed with the rationale of providing homes to the economically weaker sections of the society. As of now, it holds around 3,700 houses each of 200 square feet and about 1,600 hutments that has created a rather congested living place for the settlers.

The facelift project will be progressed on the basis of a structured layout. This move will not only create adequate living space but also accommodate additional houses. The entire scheme will be executed by the developer under the redevelopment guidelines of the Development Control & Promotion Regulations (DCPR), 2034 on behalf of MHADA.

The tender of the redevelopment project will be handed to the bidder who will provide the maximum share of the remaining built-up area (BUA) to MHADA, apart from the rehabilitation portion. As per the guidelines, the developer will have to support the cost of construction for 883.80 sqft area of the approved 1,600 sqft of residential area. The guidelines also clarified that the cost of redevelopment on 502.83 sqft of the 978 sqft approved area for non-residential use will also be borne by the developer.
