Located just west of the Punjab capital Chandigarh and given its strategic location and development of infrastructure, Mohali is being billed as India’s city of the future, providing much needed expansion in the region for a rapidly growing and educated population of over one million people.
Based on the “Garden City” concept, Mohali is a sustainable, mixed use New Town promising world class living in a secure green sanctuary – “a modern lifestyle in a haven of peace and tranquility” where every citizen is guaranteed access to light, sun, space and greenery.
The urban plan features several mixed use yet focused nodes or districts located serenely around, and connected by, open space recreational areas and golf courses. The focal node is a typical central business district with other nodes including knowledge centers with schools, universities and other education facilities, a medical and research district, a technology district and a cultural district including hotels, theaters, museums etc, all connected via a high speed mass transit monorail system and walking and biking trails.
Project Size: 534 hectares (1320 acres).
