Bhopal, India

Bentel Associates is tasked with creating a vibrant and sustainable commercial real estate precinct attached to the Habibganj Railway Station – one of the first planned Multi-modal Transportation Hubs of India.

The Client retains development rights over five land parcels, with respective commercial land use norms based on retail, office, healthcare, hospitality and a convention center. The vision for the project is to create a landmark destination that celebrates Bhopal as a ‘Smart City’, a city that looks to its future, proudly recognizing that citizens and their quality of life is the most cherished asset.

The planning for the project calls for clearly segregated and yet inter-linked modes of transport that will be used, while ensuring convenience for users of the railway station. Pedestrian plazas are designed to cater to the massive influx of visitors reaching the station, while providing for excellent frontage to the retail anchors. The railway station experience is heightened with the use of a varied landscape, playful street furniture and space planning that encourages social interaction. The creation of voids at various levels enhances the ambience to make it airy and bright. Congestion from arriving and departing railway passengers is avoided by careful planning of several entry and exit points while maximising commercial opportunities.
