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. Once complete, the residential space is expected to carve out around 33,000 homes in addition to the 3,700 already existing here. 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.
