Hafeez Contractor's plan for developing a world city at Patna

Hafeez Contractor has submitted a proposal for developing a world class city, in lines of Dubai, alongside River Gang to the Bihar Chief Minister during his visit to the City on Tuesday (24th April).

He plans to develop a city spread over 1,700 acres that boasts of  eco-friendly buildings and water sports facilities. This would include residential , commercial and entertainment centers on 300 acres while 350 acres would be developed as green fields. There will also be a park on 600 acres.  The other facilities planned include a seven star hotel, malls, shopping centers, schools, hospitals, health clubs, meditation centers, art galleries, convention centers and sports centers.

Now why would anyone propose building a seven star hotel and other such facilities in Patna unless he or she was convinced that Patna  had reached a potential that people will start needing such facilities in the near term.

For those who do not know, Hafeez Contractor is one of the most renowned architects from India. Some of the key facilities that he has architected are

  • Mumbai airport redesign
  • Infosys complexes in Bangalore, Pune, Mysore, etc
  • Russi Modi Center of Excellence in Jamshedpur
  • TC Grand Central, Mumbai
  • Hyatt Regency, Mumbai
  • Birla Institute of Technology & Science
