Hello everyone!

As the subject line indicates, im lookin into a waterfront property which is currently neglected/wasted and developing it into an area with parks/food courts/plazas/beautiful vistas/pathways/amphitheatres etc.

I ve heard of a similar proposal in Hyderabad but im not sure of exactly wat or where it is.Is there anyone who cud shed some light here?

Id also be interested in any other live projects that are proposed in Chennai(apart from the adyar eco park), Cochin, Bangalore.

Any info that cud guide me on this is more than welcome!

thanks in advance!

It might be more than you are interested in, but Babylon, Iraq fits your description. Now might not be the best time to visit, but to get the research started would be excellent.
I was there in the summer of 2004. I have heard they have moved most of the soldiers away from the ruins. There is also quite a bit of waterfront property that is quite beautiful and fragrant (the ancient flowers were in bloom when I was there).
I realize Babylon is not physically nearby, but there is quite a bit that can be accomplished over the net.

good luck,

thanks for the info sounds very intresting but im tryin to restrict myself to the indian context..nevertheless,i am looking into it

and sumidha the character of the place is basically recreation/ most of my ideas will lean to informal/recreation spaces.depending on the site i wud also like to include things like cultural heritage as well.

adyar eco park-the proposal is more or less finalised and that s the reason why im lookin into it as a case study and not a proposed site.

Hi Karen
Pune also has riverfront development project. Nothing has been done and the project is a terrible mess. but still huge potential.
