A mixed-use Smart City for south-central Delhi

The redevelopment of an existing government housing project at East Kidwai Nagar is partly aimed at contributing towards lessening New Delhi’s chronic housing shortage. Among 1.35 million m² of mixed-use provision in south-central Delhi, over 4,700 new apartments are being constructed. The shopping centre, senior secondary school and the banquet hall all run entirely on green energy, via grid-connected rooftop solar panels.

An award-winning development

The scheme won a 5-star award for ‘Best Public Service Architecture in India’ at the 2017-18 International Asia-Pacific Property Awards. 

A template for other Smart Cities

The Indian government and leading regional ministers have praised the scheme, urging its adoption as a model for other regions. East Kidwai Nagar has also been included in the Indian government’s ‘Smart City Guidelines’, and the Indian government’s National Buildings Construction Corporation showcased the project at the COP21 climate change conference in Paris in December 2015.

Chapman Taylor was responsible for the masterplanning, design and implementation of this key Smart City development.
