KCR envisions skyscrapers around lake  in Telangana

Even as Andhra Chief Minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu is trying to woo investors to help build a Chicago-like river front capital in the Guntur-Vijayawada region, Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has unveiled his plans to fill the Hyderabad skyline with  multi-storied buildings.

Rao has come up with a plan to turn the open spaces around the famous Husainsagar Lake linking Hyderabad with Secunderabad into residential and commercial hubs by constructing 60 to 100-storey towers around the lake. The chief minister, with the help of Google maps, was able to identify some vacant government lands and decided to build these skyscrapers under public sector.

The chief minister, who had reviewed urban development issues with the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Commission (GHMC) area, said that most of the poor families living around the lake will be provided housing in these high rises. A government release says that such skyscrapers on the lines of the Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur and the sea front towers in Mumbai, will house government offices, business establishments, entertainment centers and other public and private institutions. The Telangana government also released few pictures of the proposed lake front with the sky rises in the background.
Meanwhile, Naidu is on a four-day visit to Singapore for attracting investments to build a new capital and industries. Naidu had hired the Ernst and Young to organise his investment agenda and four-day programme and the KPMG to prepare his presentations.

Naidu’s team has so far visited Marina Bay Sands Sky Park and Centre for Livable Cities to study Singapore’s best urban practices.

Naidu called on Singapore Minister for Trade Vand S Iswaran and discussed the investment opportunities in Andhra Pradesh. He visited the Centre for Livable Cities to study urban planning practices.
