'Golden Triangle' to refect 'soul' of Gurgaon
Chandigarh, May 17 (UNI) Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) has decided to develop the strategically located City Centre on National Highway-eight in Gurgaon as a 'Golden Triangle' to reflect the ''soul'' of Haryana's most important commercial city.
The 'Golden Triangle ' will be developed in a magnificient manner in view of the changing scenario of this town, which has emerged as an IT hub of northern India.
Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda witnessed the presentations by two prominent companies suggesting planning, designing and landscaping of the Golden Triangle, at a meeting of senior HUDA officals here yesterday. He has approved the concept of Fairwood-ECADI.
The decision for replanning the sprawling 480 acres of land at City Centre in Sector 29, Gurgaon was taken by Financial Commissioner and Principal Secretary, Town and Country Planning, Mrs Shakuntala Jakhu at the meeting.
The concept and vision of the City Centre was developed by Mrs Jakhu as the Golden Triangle keeping in view the triangular shape of the area and visualising it as a financial capital of north India, a hospitality hub and Central Business District of Gurgaon.
The sprawling leisure valley covering 40 acres in City Centre areas has already been developed by HUDA. The remaining 80 per cent of the area was a challenge for the planners and creative designers so as to develop it as a world class city centre having a distinct character combining high-tech modernity and ethnicity.
Mrs Jakhu said at the meeting that proposals were invited to finalise the planning and designing of City Centre and the best has been chosen. The development work of City Centre would also generate tremendous economic activity in the area and open new vistas of employment, she added.
