 Project Description :
 Government of Maharashtra has identified the valley comprising of the Sahyadri range as the
 ridge on the western side and the national highway number 4, as the eastern boundary to be
 developed as the Lake District of Maharashtra. The climatic conditions in this region are
 moderate and pleasant throughout the year.

 As a part of the phased development of Western Ghat, which has a plethora of historical places,
 forts and pilgrim centers, MSRDC has initiated the development of the region from
 Mahabaleshwar to Koyna backwaters / Patan as New Mahabaleshwar Hill Station. The region,
 has been identified so as to cover the most beautiful natural scenic locations, important historic
 places and thick green plantations. The climate in the region is pleasant throughout the year with
 the temperature of the area in the range of               15.8 degree centigrade to 31.8 degree
 centigrade.The main advantage of this region is the proximity to metro centers such as Mumbai
 and Pune.

                                       Details of the Project :

The area near Koyna backwaters will be developed as New Mahabaleshwar Hill station. The hill
station will be located at about 3600 sq.ft. (1200 meters) from MSL. The total area proposed for
the hill station is 37263.0 hectar.     The identified area is located between Mumbai-Banglore
National highway no. 4 and Mumbai-Goa National highway number 17. The New Mahabaleshwar
is connected to Mahabaleshwar on north and Patan on south. The area has picturesque view and
back waters. The land scapes are eye catching and the unique feature of this area is presence of
a large number of wind mills on hill tops. Development of eight nodes including a central node
with a theme as per predominant land use pattern has been proposed.
As per a preliminary market survey carried out through discussions with leaders in Tourism
Industry, Architects, Planners and Policy Makers, the entrepreneurs will be interested in investing
in tourist activities once the region is developed. On the basis of the market survey, following
tourist activities are proposed in the region.

    #   “Kas - Blanca” Lake Resort
    #   “Nisarg” Ecotels
    #    “Durva”- 18 hole Golf course

As per traffic studies carried out for the region,the peak tourist traffic at Mahabaleshwar is 25000
per day. On the basis of the survey findings it is estimated that there will be a peak tourist traffic
of 5000 tourist per day at each node. Based on this, the estimated peak tourist traffic will be
40000 per day .

 Proposed Development Plan

 MSRDC will be declared as Special Planning Authority (SPA) for the project. The SPA will carry
 out basic infrastructure development such as construction of approach roads and provision of
 electricity and water. The area will be developed through formation of a Special Purpose
 Company (SPC), with private and public partnerships. Out of the total proposed delineated area
 of New Mahabaleshwar, an area of around 5300 ha. has been proposed for urbanization. Of this,
 around 1500 ha will be acquired by the government and handed over to SPA free of cost.
 Balance land will be acquired by the SPA. The entire land of 5300 ha will be transferred to the
 SPC by the SPA. The urbanized land will be distributed amongst various nodes for
 commercialization and tourists attractions mentioned above could be developed. The balance
 area will be preserved as natural forest land which could be developed as a natural forest on the
 lines of “Yesomite“ natural forest in California at a later stage.

Details of the Project
The plot admeasuring 7.5 ha. Earmarked for the development of a world class Convention cum
Exhibition center located in Bandra-Kurla complex offers an excellent location for a C&EC facility.
BKC is fast emerging as a new Finance and and Business center of Mumbai. The complex
already has offices of leading financial institutions such as National Stock Exchange, ICICI Bank,
Infra structure Leasing and Finance company, NABARD, Citi bank as well as leading business
groups such as Wockhardt Ltd. Setting up of a convention facility at a location nearby to the
office complex and very close from the Mumbai airport, will be a great asset for these business
and financial offices which otherwise have to organise their seminars, training programs at five
star hotels located in South Mumbai. BKC will also have very good staying facilities once the
setting up of five star hotels by Oberoi, Hyatt are complete. The C&EC is also easily accessible
from Mumbai international      airport and also from hotels located near Mumbai International
airport.(Leela Kempinsi, ITC Grand Maratha, Centaur airport etc,)

Project Details
MMRDA has set aside a plot admeasuring 7.5 Ha in the BKC, out of which about 5 to 6 Ha will be
immediately available for development of Convention and Exhibition center. The FSI being 2.0,
maximum permissible built–up area available would be 1,00,000 sq. mt. To 1,20,000
excluding area reserved for parking which is considered free of FSI).The proposed C&EC will
have an exhibition area which would comprise of halls, an auditorium, a convention hall,
convention and banquet halls, food and beverage outlets etc. Specialized areas such as
business/medical center, media center, information kiosks, telephone booths, post office and
administration and security offices etc.

Proposed Implementation Plan
The project will be implemented on BOT basis through formation of a SPV with private sector
participation. MMRDA has issued expression of interest document to prospective developers in
order to get investors’ responses in a structured manner.
