A revised waterfront masterplan for Mumbai (India)

 Port city interface 

In December 2018, the Mumbai Port Trust unveiled its first masterplan for a 966 hectare site in the eastern waterfront zone. A total of 558 hectares were earmarked for activities directly related to the port, with a further 253 hectares to be used for other developments. The draft plan proved controversial. The new masterplan aims to make Mumbai the country’s biggest cruise destination, but now emphasises the need to ensure quality of life for local residents, with more land set aside for public and green spaces. There are also plans for a “hi-tech city” on a 51 hectare site, while flood defence measures have been added to the revised plan.
