City's Master Plan 2035 eyes vertical growth

The Comprehensive Development Plan or the Master Plan 2035, which charts out the growth of Bangalore, will concentrate on vertical development.

BDA sources said that the BDA Board had recently decided that vertical development would be the mantra for the City’s growth.

The plan for putting an end to horizontal expansion of the City, however, will not be extended to private developers. “While authorised BDA layouts will have vertical development, private developers cannot be forced into the concept as most people who wish to own a site can only go through these parties,” said the source.

BDA has decided to build townships on a pilot basis in the Nadaprabhu Kempegowda Layout. The move has now received Cabinet assent, thus ensuring that all other layouts will also be converted into townships.

This time, BDA is likely to issue notices to all the civic agencies for incorporating their needs in the master plan, keeping in mind the growth of the City.

Currently, nine companies have been shortlisted by the BDA to prepare the Master Plan 2035.
