New Town & Special Townships

In the rapidly urbanizing countries, New Town Development is a complex task with far-reaching consequences.

SRUJAN plans urban environments in new towns that reflect the identity of the place, landscape, cultural significance, social integration, accessibility, liveability and modernity.

  • Self-sustainability forms the basic concept for planning of new towns.
  • Towns are planned such that there is no need to venture out of town to meet the most common needs of residences.
  • Employment can be found in industrial estates accessible to nearby towns.
  • Educational, health care and recreational needs are also taken care of with the provision of:
    • Schools
    • Hospitals
    • Parks
    • Sports complexes etc.

CBD and Cluster Development

A Central Business District (CBD) is the commercial and often geographic heart of a city, usually typified by a concentration of retail and office buildings along with premier shopping area. They are marked by a higher-than-usual urban density, having the tallest buildings in a city.

SRUJAN engages with a wide range of mixed use urban developments, including CBD, Commercial Retail areas and Shopping Malls. We give importance to development of key nodes with strategically located landmark buildings, vibrant public space and vigorous commercial areas.

Transit Oriented Development (TOD)

SRUJAN plans various projects of TOD for the clients that focus on the integration of major nodes of Public Transport into the urban fabric.

A TOD neighbourhood typically has a center with a transit station or stop. It is surrounded by relatively high-density development. The lower density development progressively spreads towards the periphery.

Structure Plan

While preparing the Structure Plan, the experts at SRUJAN identify the pattern of development by considering specific matters such as:

  • Residential densities
  • Public reserves
  • Commercial land & job opportunities
  • Pedestrian & cycle networks
  • Public transport links

Roads and Streets are used as a Skeleton of the city.

Key components taken into consideration while preparing the plan:

  • Views of the community and various stakeholders
  • Diversity
  • Historical fabric
  • Special characteristics of the city

We opt for a city structure model as per context of a particular place.
