Transforming port land in Mumbai
By 2030, Mumbai is expected to become a megalopolis with a population in excess of 30 million and potential economic GDP in excess of $ 250 billion. But this will only be possible if the city is able to attract talent, investment and entrepreneurs. Redeveloping Mumbai’s port land is one of the ways to make Mumbai liveable and enable it to emerge as the hub for innovation and entrepreneurship in India.
APLI Mumbai, a port land initiative, was formed by the late Meera Sanyal and Vice Admiral (Retd) IC Rao, PVSM, AVSM, along with several design groups and thinktanks as a response to the Rani Jadhav Committee Report (on port waterfront and land development in Mumbai), to develop a ‘people’s vision’ for the city and its port lands, shares Sarfaraz Momin, Foundi
